Lake Worth Golf Club borders the Intracoastal Waterway for just over a mile. There is no shortage of scenic courses in south Florida but this one still manages to stand out. Many of the holes run parallel to the Intracoastal, offering beautiful views and a cooling breeze. The golf course has a classic Florida layout. At just over 6,100 yards, it is not a long course but it still manages to feel like one. There is strategic bunkering along the greensides and water hazards come into play on a few holes. With generous fairways and no forced carries, it is accommodating enough for a range of skill levels but it still offers a fair challenge. The golf course offers a quick and challenging round for more advanced players but gentle enough for beginners.

Course was in great shape after heavy rains. Greens are starting to come back after aeration.

Love to play late afternoon as it feels like a private course..

The greens are air rated, half the tee boxes were bare not much grass and the fairways were dry. I spoke to the pro shop and he said the greens were quite good they were only air rated six days ago ... not his money or time. My playing group was angry the management did not disclose the greens were not putt-able or chip-able and the fairways were dry. Repeat dont play here, you’re wasting your money and your time. Play the Palm Beach Par 3 across the water by the ocean ... great course and picturesque views ... you would not regret it.

previously stated, not first time there,been there many times. I was directly on the coarse website, when booking, so not known it was a golfnow booking. honestly calling direct would save the booking fees. My flaw for this outing was they recently ventilated the greens, and had 9 holes closed, so had to play same 9 twice. Clerk said it was posted on website, I did not see that when i mad booking. But having lived in south Florida many years,, this happens on nearly all the coarses after snow birds leave to go home for the summer months. I should have called, from past experiences, but it was a short notice booking. Fairways and tee boxes were in great shape , just bumpy greens on this day. As said , very scenic as it is right on the intercoastal waterway, usually a good breeze off the ocean, which is helpful on very hot days. I am sure i will play here again,,, but will make sure to call before booking.....

Always a fun round at Lake Worth. As a single, I always get matched up with others and have always had great playing partners. Fairly easy course, but the greens are frustratingly slow, however the course is in overall nice condition. The bar/happy hour is always super and the staff are A+.

The unremarkable course design won't turn many heads, but this old-school track that was a favorite of Babe Ruth's boasts spectacular views of the Intracoastal Waterway. While the fairways and tee boxes were in fairly good state, the spongy greens on the first eight holes were nearly unputtable. From No. 9 onwards, they were in better, but not great, condition. There was no beverage cart service during my late afternoon, solo round. The pace of play was excellent with several groups allowing me to play through till No. 15, when the pace slowed considerably. Noteworthy was the "tombstone" of former World War II veterans on the No. 13 tee box. Nicknamed "The Dogfighters," the veterans were long-time players at the course whose names and dates of birth and death were engraved on the reverent-looking stone marker. No GPS. Staff were attentive. Well worth $18 Hot Deal and a return visit.

I brought five golfers of different levels to play at Lake Worth. Nobody was disappointed.

From the moment we dropped off our bags to them moment we left the restaurant, it was, again, the most accommodating course in Palm Beach.

The course was in excellent shape, the greens were a little slow but rolled well and the views of the intracoastal were spectacular.

It was fair to all levels.

We can't wait to return.
