Default West Palm partners

Will spend the whole of January in the West Palm area of Florida. Anyone want a game please PM me. I prefer to play early and walk but also open to carting.

What are the nice courses in the west palm area? I only know Madison Green which was good with an enjoyable layout and decent conditions but haven't been there in a long time

There are a number of courses that are very enjoyable to play. Madison Green is one. Another is North Palm Beach, a Nicklaus do over with very fast greens and some elevation changes which is unusual for Florida. TPC Eagle Trace is also a very nice course. Through Canam golf you now have access to several private courses which I enjoy - Westchester, East Pointe, and Ironhorse.
Among the munis, Osprey is a good layout with some nice views and good conditioning.

Depends where you will be located. I use Okeeheelee because it is close to my place. It has a driving range, bunker and chipping area and a massive practice green where you can also chip.

The John Prince Park learning centre would be a better option for you. I have not used it but it appears to be full practice facility.

Good meeting and playing with you, Big Shooter and Bosco in Palm Beach. Hope you guys had a good rest of the stay. And hope the pull out was not too bad!

Great meeting you too! Eagle Marsh will be an hour away north of West Palm if you decide to head up. Quite a drive but worth it depending on the deal you get. We felt very welcomed at the course by all staff and our bartender was really nice too, Americans do love us Canadians !
