The original course at the North Palm Beach Country Club was created by Seth Raynor in the late 1920s, and it was nothing special, just a squarish tract near the downtown. Jack Nicklaus was later attracted to the area by his coach Jack Grout, and he was enlisted to create a new eighteen for the club, which he did for free in an effort to return something to the community that he has made his home for much of his adult life.
This Jack Nicklaus Signature course was redesigned and opened to the public for play in the fall of 2006. This links-style course is 1 of only 2 Nicklaus Signature Municipal courses in the United States, and has quickly become one of the premier golf destinations in Florida.
The golf course at North Palm Beach Country Club is very unique to south Florida. The undulating terrain, superbly conditioned greens and the amazing setting on the Intracoastal Waterway make this course stand out among other area greats.
Sitting atop the Seminole Ridge, this picturesque layout was artfully redesigned to work in harmony with the natural terrain, from the intracoastal waterway to the natural oak hammocks. This course design features elevation changes,rolling fairways and undulated well-bunkered greens. This par-71 course was lengthened to over 7,000 yards from the back tees. With 5 sets of tees, Jack designed flexibility into the course to cater to every level of golfer, making it playable and challenging at the same time
This Jack Nicklaus Signature layout is a “must play” golf course. This “thinking man’s” course offers generous fairways, superb green settings and challenging shot values. All this combined with the beautiful views will leave you wanting to come back for more.
