Park Ridge Golf Course transformed what was formerly the site of the Lantana Landfill into a popular municipal course. Construction began on this unique undertaking in 2004 and the end result was certified by Audubon International as a Cooperative Sanctuary. The course climbs up to 85 feet, making it one of the highest golf courses in the county. It has a links-style layout that rolls across a variety of elevation changes, offering plenty of stunning views along the way. Such a contoured and hilly course is a rare occurrence in Florida. The golf course provides a challenge with some very tricky par 3s, several blind shots due to the rolling terrain, and strategically placed traps throughout but there are no water hazards except for one lateral hazard. There is also thick rough framing many of the holes.

Course is in good condition. Greens are pretty fast.

The course is challenging, with trouble on virtually every hole. In most cases it's tall grass that frames the fairway.

Okeeheelee is probably a better value- more scenic, more forgiving, and about the same or less cost.

This is the only course in S. Florida with hills and the managers are doing a great job keeping the course up with all of the winter play. There is plenty of staff and they are very friendly and courteous. You will not find another course like this in South Florida.

(even though I did not play very well).

We played the 9 for 9 special.

This gem has a terrific layout, with a number of blind shots and pretty narrow fairways in spots. The greens were pretty quick and the fairways were in good shape. It was a breezy day, which certainly affected shot selection, but kept the temperature quite pleasant for August in South FL. The staff is certifiably nice; I can't wait to return.

Thanks for coming out to play and for taking the time to leave a review. Due to the timing of your review, we have to think you played very close to the completion of our aerification process, and for that we apologize. We very much hope that you will come back for another visit soon as the course has already healed beautifully. Until then, keep 'em in the short stuff.

Humidity was brutal, but that's S. FL in July. Course was fun to play but it was nice to have one of the regulars along due to a large number of tee shots being blind due to the hills. Greens were in good shape and the speed was very consistent over the whole course. Very unusual course for S. FL in regard to all the hills and varying elevations.. Watch out for the rough because it is.

You hit the nail on the head. Since we are built on a retired landfill, there are a number of holes that feature elevation changes of up to 40 ft., which is truly unique for this area. Thanks for the review and we hope to see you again soon.

Thank you for the review. We are built on a retired landfill and that provides the unique elevation changes you mentioned... Number 11 and 14 are straight down the hill while 16 goes right back up it. Thanks again and we hope to see you again.

This course was absolutely gorgeous. The fairways greens, everything was in amazing shape. Appreciate the lightning detector which slowed the round by about 30 minutes, but better safe than sorry!. The staff is always friendly, and the course is just breathtaking. Elevation like no other place in South Florida!

It's definitely not a short golf course when played all the way back, but it sure does add to the elevation changes on holes like 11 and 12. We very much appreciate you giving us five stars!

No character to this course. Its like a house with an awesome kitchen but crummy layout. The course has revelation, which is NOT seen in South Florida - but the layout is not good. Been to this course about 3 times and doubt I would go back. Elevation is "cool", but novelty wears off quickly.

The course was in horrible shape. Tee boxes are in bad shape. Lots of crabgrass and divots. Fairways were in good shape. Greens were not cut and also had crabgrass.

Would rather go to Atlantic National / Lacuna right down the street from this course.

We're very sorry that you feel that way about our layout. We can honestly say, that is not something we hear very often as our layout is one of the most unique - and enjoyed - layouts in the area. We're made up of six par 3s, six par 4s and six par 5s combined with elevation changes that are unmatched in the area. We appreciate you coming to play and for taking the time to fill out a review.
