Golfers are in for a thrill at the two golf courses of Palm Aire — the Lakes and the Champions. Both have been completely renovated and are ranked by Golfweek magazine as two of the best layouts in Florida. These courses have five different tee box locations for each tee to enable play to all player ability levels. Swing, power, and stance can be perfected at the country club’s driving range which has twenty-four grass hitting slots.

A tour of the Lakes layout involves a par-72 play of 6,685 yards from its farthest tee. The designer for this course is Joe Lee, known for his enigmatic golf layouts. The Lakes course rates a 72.1, with its slope rating at 130. The longer Champions course measures 7,005 yards and also plays at par 72; course rating is 73.9 and slope rating is 120. Its creator is Dick Wilson, another course architect well-known for his challenging designs.

These courses were the scene of some milestones in U.S. golf history. Among these are the first televised golf tournaments, like the 1959 All Star Golf won by the iconic Sam Snead.
