PALM AIRE GOLF - The Oaks Course (954-978-1737)
Florida Golf Course Review
Palm Aire in Pompano Beach has been described as South Florida's most complete golf experience. On property are 4 golf courses, 2 full service clubhouses with pro shops, 2
golf schools, 2 restaurants, banquet and outing facilities, and over 30 tennis courts. Practice facilities include 2 driving ranges, 4 practice greens, 2 short game areas and a four
-hole practice loop. Since 1994, over $14,000,000 has been invested to renovate the golf courses and amenities. The Oaks and Cypress Courses are serviced by one clubhouse,
and the Palms and Sabals by another. All five courses are open for public play for daily fee and for group outings.
Palm Aire has hosted numerous prestigious tournaments including the Florida Open, Dixie Amateur Championship, and Nike Tour's South Florida Classic. The Oaks and
Cypress layouts are regarded among the finest 36 holes of golf in the tri-county area. The courses provide yardage blocks on the fairways, sprinkler heads that are measured to
the center of the green, plus color coded flags to indicate the days pin placement.
The Oaks is a par 71 layout that was renovated by Fazio Design in 1998, and is the best known course at Palm Aire. The Tif Eagle greens are among the finest in Florida, providing
consistently quick and true rolling putting surfaces. The Oaks clubhouse features a dining room and lounge that can accommodate up to 100 guests, plus the Cypress and
Magnolia banquet rooms that can facilitate large or intimate functions.
Named as one of the top 100 courses in the state by the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, the Oaks Course features 61 sand bunkers and has water in play on 11 holes, though mostly
on the perimeter. Fairways are lined with palms and oaks, which assist in defining the many doglegs. The team of George and Tom Fazio has helped the course to establish a
character that graces the grand old courses of the Golden Era, while making the layout difficult, yet also fair to play. Risk reward opportunities abound along this 6910 yard design.
The tips play to a challenging slope of 131, while the remaining four sets of tees measure 6370 yards/125 slope, 5885 yards/120 slope, 5459 yards/115 slope, and 4860 yards
with a slope of 103.
Palm Aire is conveniently located off Florida's Turnpike near the Atlantic Blvd exit north of Ft Lauderdale and south of Palm Beach, and is also easily accessible from I-95 at exit 33.
