The Palm Beach Par 3 Golf Course

The Palm Beach Par 3 Golf Course is one of the finest short courses within the State of Florida.  Situated on 39-acres in the Town of Palm Beach between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway, this amazing course originally opened in 1961 as a private club.  The Town of Palm Beach purchased the course in 1973 and has remained open to the public since that time.

The course itself features 18-holes which was redesigned by renowned golfer Raymond Floyd in 2009. Holes range in length from 49 yards (from the white tees) to 211 yards (from the black tees). Twice has the course been dubbed the “The Best Par 3 in the U.S.” and was ranked the number 1 course by Golf Magazine.

In addition to the course the facility features a full-length driving range, putting green, practice bunker as well as a Key West style clubhouse with a pro shop and an second floor on-site ocean view restaurant.
