Where2Golf says: 

The Breakers (Rees Jones course): The Breakers luxury resort in Palm Beach, Florida is home to two contrasting golf courses, both generally reserved for members and resort-guests only. The Ocean course, which is Florida's oldest 18-hole golf course, is located adjacent to the impressive resort hotel. The Rees Jones course, formerly known as Breakers West, is situated about 11 miles west of the resort, next to Mayacoo Lakes.

The Rees Jones course at The Breakers is a championship layout that ranks with some of the best in Florida. This tree-lined and open parkland course provides a wonderful test for your all-round game, with many attractive, skilfully crafted and challenging holes to enjoy. A must play if you are in the area.

Stay & Play at The Breakers: luxury onsite accommodation available, see Where2Stay section below.

Did you know?

The Breaker's founder, Henry M. Flagler (1830-1913), was one of America’s great industrialists. Together with John D. Rockefeller and Samuel Andrews he was a founding partner in the Standard Oil Corporation. Known as the "father of St Augustine, Miami and Palm Beach", Flagler was a towering figure in the development of the Atlantic coast of Florida and founder of the Florida East Coast Railway.

Flagler started the trend of grand hotel properties on the island of Palm Beach, and elswhere in Florida. In 1896 Flagler debuted his premier oceanfront hotel, the Palm Beach Inn (later renamed The Breakers), which delighted guests with its unique location - directly at “the breakers, where the waves rolled ashore.

After fires in both 1903 and 1925, the Inn reemerged more opulent each time. The second reconstruction of The Breakers was designed by New York-based designers Shultze & Weaver, who would later create some of Manhattan’s most revered hotels, like The Pierre, The Sherry-Netherland and Park Avenue’s Waldorf Astoria.
