The redesigned par-71 Resort Course and treasured Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary plays 6,253 yards and features many elevation changes and twelve acres of water, including the signature, island-green finishing hole.

The course is reserved for Club members and resort guests and the driving range is also included in the resort fee. The course is set at the Boca Raton Resort and Club, which features three luxurious hotels perfect for any stay in southern Palm Beach County.
Osprey Point Golf Course
Since opening in 2010, Osprey Point Golf Course has come to be known as one of Florida’s best public courses.
