ATLANTIC NATIONAL GOLF CLUB (561-969-6600)
Florida Golf Course Review
A review of this course will be posted soon.
Atlantic National in southeast Florida (Lake Worth), is a beautiful Joe Lee designed par 71 championship course that can be enjoyed by novices and expert
players alike. At 6500 yards it is not overly long, but all par fives are 533 yards plus and several par fours support a grip it an rip it mentality off the tees. On
our February visit the course was nicely manicured and the service extremely friendly.
The interesting design runs through a residential community and is mildly rolling with palms and pines bordering the fairways. The green complexes are
gorgeous, mildly raised and protected by sand bunkers, with towering palms often forming the backdrop. There are GPS units on all carts, with accurate
information from tee to green, and 150 yards markers on all par fours and fairways. Color coded flags indicate the day's front, middle or back hole locations
The fairway bunkers are penal, with high lips built into the sides of mounds; and with 68 sand traps in total, it is a daunting task to avoid them. Water also
plays a significant role, with 15 holes having hazards in play in some shape or form - mostly on the perimeters. Waste bunkers are also prevalent. Golfers can
choose from 4 sets of tee boxes that play to distances and slopes measuring 6519 yards/130 slope, 6142 yards/127 slope, 5446 yards/115 slope and 5016 yards
with a slope of 121 for women playing the red tees.
On property is clubhouse with pro shop, dining area and lounge, with 10 televisions set up for those hoping to see their favorite sporting event. The practice
facilities include 2 putting/chipping greens, plus a target grass range. The course also has holes set up for soccer-golf... played seasonally.
We found the layout to be extremely interesting, with several doglegs and a spectacular set of par threes. The green fees are quite reasonable. ..we highly
recommend a round here. A tip - Pay attention to the pin placements, as some of the greens are large and undulating.
