There are some really nice golf courses in Palm Beach County, Florida but what about public golf courses in the city of Boynton Beach? Not everyone can afford the costly membership fees of an exclusive country club or live in a fancy golf community that cater for semi-retired or over the 50s.
A public golf course is where you can book and play on the day without having to pay yearly membership fees.
Thankfully, we have found 3 good public (one of these a municipal course) golf courses in Boynton Beach, FL. These are The Links at Boynton Beach (city-owned), Westchester Country Club and the Atlantic National Golf Club.
In our opinion, these are the best courses in the area for beginner golfers who want to practice on a good course before deciding on whether to upgrade to a country club with exclusive membership entitlements.
