West Palm Beach FL Real Estate | Major Golf Project Coming to WPB

Posted By

A major golf development is coming to West Palm Beach that could have a major effect on West Palm Beach FL real estate.

Last week, developer American Links announced it will orchestrate a $86 million rejuvenation of the 196-acre West Palm Beach municipal golf course. In addition to the reviving of the golf course, a Topgolf franchise will also come to the area and there will be upgrades made to the clubhouse.

While American Links would front the entire bill and would profit from revenue from the course and Topgolf, the project is expected to bring the city $1.8 million in revenue for use for parks and recreation and create more than 600 jobs.

American Links beat out Greg Norman Course Design for the right to get to negotiate the contract with the city mainly because it agreed to keep the historic Dick Wilson design largely intact.

Among the key changes for area residents and users of the course:

  • The deteriorated greens would be brought back to life, in what a city release called “a sympathetic restoration.” The course would be closed to golfers during the project.
  • The layout of about 16 of the 18 holes would remain unchanged.
  • The entrance to the course would shift from Forest Hill and Parker Avenue to the south, off South Dixie Highway at Gregory Road, along the C-51 canal that borders Lake Worth.
  • Forest Hill High would get an acre for parking.
  • Mary Brandon Park at the northeast corner of the course, would not be touched.
  • Topgolf and an 80-100-room hotel or clubhouse, or a hotel that serves as a clubhouse, whatever the city prefers, will occupy the southwestern corner of the course, giving the entertainment venue visibility from Interstate 95. Topgolf would include a restaurant and a meeting room with space for 250 guests.
  • The canal bank would gain boating access and possibly a sculling venue for rowers.
