The City of West Palm Beach’s Newest Municipal Golf Course, The Park, Opens on April 17
WEST PALM BEACH, FL – The City of West Palm Beach will celebrate the grand opening of its new municipal golf course, The Park, on Monday, April 17, 2023, at 7:30 a.m. at 7301 Georgia Avenue. The celebration will feature Mayor Keith A. James and former superintendent Joe Sellars, and a kick-off tee shot by two “The Path” candidates.
The Park, previously known as the West Palm Beach Country Club, has undergone a complete transformation thanks to the generous contributions of private individuals who recognized the importance of having a world-class public golf course in the heart of West Palm Beach. Designed by Gil Hanse, The Park is a masterpiece that promises to deliver an exceptional golfing experience to players of all skill levels.
“When ideas for this site were being considered, I never imagined an outcome like this was possible.” said Mayor Keith A. James. “This is a tremendous gift to the City of West Palm Beach. People will be astounded when they see the outstanding facility that has been built for the City and its residents. “The process has been smooth, and the progress has been amazing. My staff and I are very proud to have helped bring this project to reality for current and future generations” said Mayor Keith A. James.
The Path, a community initiative dedicated to serving the next generation of leaders through personal growth, education, and mentorship programming, lies at the core of The Park’s mission and culture. The Park also offers additional amenities, such as:
- The House – A contemporary American restaurant opening in Fall 2023.
- The Cabana – An al fresco retreat serving beverages and food at the turn.
- The Studio – A home to private instructions with PGA Certified Coaches, Foresight golf simulator, Trackman launch monitor, Swing Catalyst analysis software, BodiTrak pressure sensing golf mat, and more.
