ATLANTIS COUNTRY CLUB (561-968-1300)
Florida Golf Course Review
Atlantis Country Club is a Dick Wilson/Robert Simmons design featuring tree lined fairways and small green complexes that are well-guarded by numerous
sand bunkers. Located 5 miles south of the Palm BeachInternationalAirport, Atlantis is reminiscent of southern courses and with four sets of tee boxes,
presents a challenge that can be enjoyed by all levels of players. New Ultra Dwarf Champion greens have been receiving overwhelmingly
positive comments from golfers and have significantly increased the speed of the greens at Atlantis Country Club. This course has been
rated with 4-1/2 stars out of 5 by Golf Digest Places to Play.
The Property includes a full service practice facility with golf schools and lessons available from PGA and LPGA professionals. There are two practice
greens and a grass range, plus a clubhouse with pro shop, locker room facilities with showers, and Garden Room & Grill which is open for lunch, dinner
and for private parties. A snack bar adjacent to the pro shop also serves breakfast and lunch menus.There are two private rooms that can accommodate
from 40 to 80 guests, and the main facility can host up to 200 people (175 with a dance floor).
Golfers can play from distances and slopes that measure 6610 yards/137 slope, 6060 yards/130 slope, 5701 yards/122 slope, and 5242 yards with a
slope of 125 for ladies using the forward tees. Though not overly long, the course presents numerous doglegs bending in either direction, with holes
framed by dense clusters of massive oaks, fiscus and native pine trees. As with most SE Florida courses, numerous trees were lost during the hurricane
season, but there are plans in place to replace them. The greens at Atlantis are often elevated, and well protected by sand, with 100 bunkers in total
located near the landing zones on the fairways or greenside.
Water comes into play on nine holes, though few forced carries are needed. Golfers often are confronted with approach shots featuring water on one side
and thick strands of mature trees on the other. A series of canals also crosses the fairways on several holes. Color coded flags help to indicate front,
middle and back hole locations on the medium-sized, mildly undulating putting surfaces, and sprinkler heads scattered about the course provide yardages
to the center of the green. There are yardage blocks at 100, 150 and 200 yards both on the fairways and cat paths. Covers on the backs of carts provide
protection for clubs during inclement weather.
With nice conditioning and friendly service, Atlantis offers a three-star semi-private golf experience - a value round with affordable rates offered to the
public year round.. Callaway club and Footjoy shoe rentals are available. For more info, visit our page for the course, with direct link to the property's website by clicking here.
