Situated southwest of Lake Worth, this former Mulberry Farms that occupies 834 acres to the north of Boynton Beach and south of West Palm Beach is now recognized as one of the most aesthetically beautiful country club communities in the US and one of the best places to live in Florida.
The golf development has grown into a city-size community with a nice blend of single-story condominium units, golf villas, townhomes, single-family golf houses to sprawling golf estate homes. The design ranges from ranch to Mediterranean-style golf homes with family-oriented facilities like playgrounds, tennis courts, and even restaurants found in specific areas of the community.
Conducive to families and retirees, this premier golf community is also officially designated as a bird sanctuary and a golfer's paradise. It offers residents lots of parks and green spaces. Nearby, across Congress Ave. is John Prince Park. The park is by the shores of Lake Osborne and offers camping facilities, picnic areas, playgrounds, fishing piers, walking trails, and nature attractions.
Other features that make Atlantis stand and chosen as one of the best places to live are the exceptional public and private schools found close within the golf community. A police department located within the development provides an extra level of confidence. And just outside the golf community is the JFK Medical Center, the largest medical center in Palm Beach County along with many medical offices.
The Atlantis Country Club is one of two clubs that share the limelight in this expansive golf development. It is more popular since it is open to members and the public. It also has a picturesque resort reminiscent of the southern state courses. Towering pines, mature oaks, and massive banyan trees characterize the landscape.
The Atlantis is a semi-private par 72 18-hole golf course that offers 4 sets of tee boxes and measures 6,610 yards. The course opened in 1973 and was designed by Dick Wilson and Bob Simmons. Visiting golfers commend the course's layout and playability.
The club also offers a Golf Academy with well-experienced PGA and LPGA teaching staff giving a high level of instructions. This is complemented by a driving range, pitching and chipping area, and putting greens. Annual golf memberships are offered with options for single or family. This includes green fees with unlimited play. An option that includes cart usage is also available.
The clubhouse has a restaurant along with a pro shop, a rental service for clubs and carts, and a locker room with showers. The Garden Room & Grill is open for lunch, dinner, and private parties. It can be transformed into a ballroom with a dance floor enough to seat 200 guests comfortably. 2 other private rooms are also available to cater to a smaller number of guests.
Atlantis is centrally located. The Palm Beach International Airport is just 5 miles away. It also gives you convenient access to most shops, restaurants, shopping malls, and entertainment venues found in downtown Lake Worth or the West Palm Beach area. To enjoy and relax in the south Florida sunshine, the beautiful beaches of South Palm Beach are just a 15 minutes drive. West Palm Beach, Boynton Beach, or any places within the eastern coast of Florida can easily be reached via I-95 or the Florida Turnpike.
