The Breakers (Ocean 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 Ocean course is a well-rated and always popular layout. This tree-lined and open parkland course should not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy. Plenty of golfing challenge, a well-crafted design and usually good upkeep all contribute to the appeal of this course. One to include on your play list if you are in the area.

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.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
