Play While You Stay: The Best Golf Courses in Boca Raton!
There’s no shortage of Palm Beach County golf courses to choose from, so finding a place in Boca Raton to hit the links is rarely an issue. With so many options, the only real “problem” you’ll run into is figuring out which golf course to spend the day at!
To help you make your decision, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite Boca Raton golf courses located within driving distance of the Ocean Lodge hotel. Take a look at some of our picks, which encompass everything from public courses to semi-private and private ones. There really is something for everybody!
The Best Public & Semi-Private Boca Raton Golf Courses
The folks at Osprey Point Golf Course aren’t afraid to talk about the many awards they’ve won since opening up in 2010, and we can’t blame them! After all, we definitely agree that they’re one of the top public golf courses in Boca Raton, offering visitors year-round access to 27 holes spread across three nine-hole courses.
At Southwinds Golf Course, you’ll spot exciting wildlife ranging from geese to iguanas to otters scattered throughout the lush vegetation and placid bodies of water. The golfing itself can prove challenging, with the water frequently presenting itself as a fun obstacle across many of the course’s 18 holes. The mix of relaxing tranquility, interesting animals, and strategic difficulty make for a truly memorable day of golfing.
Boca Greens Country Club offers a 175-acre golfing experience where “private club quality meets public golf value.” Boca Greens was originally opened as an extremely exclusive private club, but it now offers select public tee times for everybody! Plus, much like Southwinds, bodies of water are prevalent all throughout the course, making for yet another enticingly challenging experience for all skill levels. Finally, it’s worth noting that the course was designed by the late “Gentleman” Joe Lee, arguably the greatest golf-course architect to have ever lived. Truly a sight worth seeing!
The Best Private Boca Raton Golf Courses
Established in 1985 but renovated in 2018, the Boca Country Club offers breathtaking views and a variety of challenges to keep visitors of all skill levels engaged. In addition, a well-informed staff is always on hand to provide tips on each of the 18 holes, while the 6,714-yard course is incredibly well-tended to all year-round. As if that weren’t enough, the club also features ten tennis courts, a full basketball court, an outdoor pool, and a Health Club that offers fitnesses classes, yoga, and pilates. What else could you ask for in a Country Club?
Thanks to non-resident memberships that are available for select applicants, you don’t have to actually live at Boca Grove Golf & Tennis Club to enjoy their expansive golf, tennis, and fitness amenities. With this non-resident membership, you’ll gain access to an 18-hole golf course, which, much like the Boca Country Club, is also full of knowledgeable and friendly staff members.
Another one of the most popular Boca Raton private golf courses, the Broken Sound Club’s “Golf Membership” comes with bonus social and tennis privileges, while the club’s ongoing commitment to eco-friendly initiatives have made it the second-ever US-based golf facility to receive a GEO certification! As you can imagine, this commitment to environmental sustainability makes for some seriously beautiful courses full of flora-covered fairways, beautifully aged stone bridges, and a wide variety of lakes, lagoons, and wildlife to admire throughout the club’s newer course and its even more tranquil 18-hole old course.
