Okeeheelee Golf Course is a 27 hole golf facility situated in a pristine, quiet park setting and designed by Roy Case. The facility has offered quality golf to Palm Beach County residents and visitors for more than 20 years. Okeeheelee Golf Course is open seven days a week, including holidays.
Okeeheelee means “quiet waters,” a name that comes from its unique park setting and beautiful vistas that stretch to Clear Lake. The golf course is also proud to participate in the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for golf courses (ACSP) and is committed to environmental stewardship.
Okeeheelee features three nine-hole layouts that can be played in multiple 18-hole combinations, providing the potential for a different golf experience on each visit to the facility. Every hole features five sets of tees, so all skill levels will feel comfortable playing at the course.
Golf enthusiasts will be tested as the facility features elevated greens surrounded by bunkers and fairways lined with tall trees and deep rough. Okeeheelee Golf Course also hosts weekly Men's and Ladies tournament series throughout the year, such as the twilight and weekend scrambles, and while the course may be challenging, it is still player-friendly.
This public course also provides golfers with extensive practice facilities, including 30,000-square feet of putting green, chipping, and pitching areas, a driving range, and bunker practice areas. The golf course also features nationally recognized LPGA and PGA instructors and provides affordable group and private instruction for all ages and abilities.
