Formerly known as Grand Lacuna Golf Club, this par-71 championship course now goes by the name Atlantic National Golf Club. Designed in the late 1980s by Joe Lee, the course was designated one of the 50 best public courses in Florida. The challenging layout has plenty of variety that will require all different types of shots. Golfers will find that they need to use every club in their bag. Water hazards come into play on several holes but the strategically placed bunkers that lurk along the greensides and fairways are particularly tricky. There are some tough holes but it is an accommodating layout for all skill levels, especially since it has four diverse sets of tees. In addition to the golf course, Atlantic National offers a grass driving range, two putting greens, and a chipping area with a practice bunker.

This isn’t the first time this has happened with Golfnow, but it was an extremely disappointing experience playing this round today. The course had just been punched both greens and fairways along with may tee boxes being closed for repairs. There was no advanced knowledge of these issues when booking this tee time and the round gave me zero opportunity to get any positive experience. This will likely be the last time that I play at this course as I believe the course should have been closed to the public in the condition that it was in.

This is an excellent course to play right now for the money. Keep in mind that about 4 tee boxes are being redone. It is still a great value, but understand that 3 of the par 3s are at about 100-120 yds. It was fun and fast and we enjoyed the couple we played with!

Upon arrival at the course we noticed a lot of construction going on which was surprising, because NOTHING was mentioned about this on GolfNow. The fairways were all tore up because they shut down a week prior to take care of the nematodes. All the greens were sanded and covered in little pebbles. 80 percent of the bunkers were filled with water. 3 of the 4 par 3s had mats to hit from because the tee boxes were gone and they all played around 70 yards from all the tees. I understand courses get renovated but not telling the public before you take there money is fraud and a misrepresentation. There are way too many nice courses around to waste your time here, I will never play this course again and i recommend anyone reading this does the same.

It would have been nice to know that they are working on all greens and fairways. Some of the tee markers were right next to each other. and pthe fairways were aerated. I understand the need th do the work but it would have nice that we were told beforehand.

Thank you U0000058321 for the GOOD review! We appreciate your comments and you taking the time to review your recent experience. We have yet to do any aerification to the golf course. Tuesday, May 7th we had a soil fumigant application which created the scoring lines you saw on the fairways. These preventative maintenance procedures are a necessary evil to maintain the desired course conditions. We thank you for your business and look forward to seeing you again soon.

Everyone loves when they put money into a course to make them better. Nobody likes it when you’re already there and have paid to find out that’s what they are doing. 4 Tee boxes are being completely made over and the back 9 tee boxes except #10 are completely sanded. The greens, rolling true and fast still have a light cover of sand on them. Normally the conditions here are beautiful! I would wait at least 2 months or pay a very discounted rate to play here again before the renovations complete.

This is not the time to play this course. They are getting ready to do renovations and they have basically killed the grass on the greens. Fairways and sand traps are in good shape. Pace is slow. We had a foursome in front of us who were extremely slow and wouldn't let us play through. We finally skipped a hole and went around them. Staff is very friendly.

This is the best course I have played. Staff was very friendly. The fairways are in good shape. There is lots of water and sand so you need to be able to hit it straight. Greens are fast and putt true. There are a couple of wicked dog legs so overall a good touch course for an average golfer like me. I will definitely play here again.

Nice course and great greens. For some reason while putting on first green we watched starter escort a group to the second tee. We waited on every shot the rest of the day. No explanation given. The drinks in the clubhouse were very pricy. $9 for a shot.

The greens are fast but putt true. The course is in great condition. I feel that it is a fair course for the golfer with tee boxes to fit all levels of play. I play the green tees as they are about 5500 yds which is my sweet spot.
