'New' Golf Course Opens in Palm Beach County

By: Tim McDonald


Good news: Another "new" golf course is opening in Florida. The Atlantic National Golf Club used to be known as the Grand Lacuna Golf and Country Club in Lake Worth.

New ownership took over last December and in April, the course was closed for renovation. Construction is now complete, the owners told the Palm Beach Post, and the grand re-opening is set for Saturday, Nov. 12.
The new owners, Tom and Betty Stark, basically updated everything, including the course, pro shop, kitchen, bar and even the parking lot.
The course is a Joe Lee design, relatively short by modern standards at 6,519 yards. The renovation included making the greens larger and shaping more undulation into them. They were also re-grassed with Tif-Eagle Bermuda.
"The layout of the course is basically the same, but the tee boxes, fairways and rough have all been replaced with celebration grass," Atlantic National General Manager GM Tom Welz told the paper. "The bunkers have also been reshaped, and new sand has been installed."
There will also be new carts equipped with GPS. Current green fees are $60, but those rates drop drastically to $25 from 2-3:30 and $15 after 3 p.m.
The club also has various discounts on its website, including a free round on your birthday if you register for its e-club.
Call 561-969-6600 for more info.
