Park Ridge Golf Course, Lake Worth

3.6
#8 of 11 in Outdoors in Lake Worth
By creating an 18-hole golf course on the closed Lantana Landfill, Palm Beach County and the Solid Waste Authority turned a useless piece of property into a popular community asset.

Originally closed in 1987, the Solid Waste Authority and Palm Beach County began construction of this unique facility in 2004.

Topping 85 feet at its highest point it just may be the highest golf experience in the County, and while heaven and earth was not moved to build the course, over 645,000 cubic yards of fill was imported to create contours and cover the specialized irrigation system.

The golf course which was opened to the public in March of 2007 has not only received engineering and environmental awards, it has also been certified by Audubon International as a cooperative sanctuary.

  • I've played here twice in the past and have both times played on a well-manicured golf course as well as a respectful and polite staff, except today. The reason I'm leaving this review is because the starter Geoff was very rude to our foursome as we were making the turn. We were running a little behind due to being held up by a foursome through the first four holes and instead of saying gentleman can you please pick up the pace a little he was very sarcastic and rude. When confronted at the end of the day about why he addressed us in such a manner he seemed to have no remorse nor was he apologetic whatsoever and continued his sarcasm.
  • A unique golf courses that offers elevation changes like no where else in the area.
  • Great golf course, very different from other South Florida courses in that there are elevation changes. Good variety of holes with different challenges. Friendly staff.
  • Excelent layout, nice golf course with a lot of up an down. Very funny and difficult
  • Very nice course every hole is different and challenge I think it is the hardest of the county course's
