More than 40 years ago a group of young Palm Beach business leaders teamed up with Jack Nicklaus and Desmond Muirhead to create a truly great golf course in West Palm Beach and my, oh my, they did just that!
Mayacoo is where 18 distinctive challenges await players of every skill level. Here is where brute strength gives way to shot making and course management and you hone your game to its finest edge. The course’s design incorporates both challenge and playability for every skill level. Mayacoo Lakes was the first effort for Jack Nicklaus and many believe it was his best.
Tee times at Mayacoo are never necessary....Mayacoo is ready when you are. This is an 18 hole course designed by Jack Nicklaus and Desmond Muirhead, that opened in December 1972. The course was restored to its original design and reopened in December 2007 under the watchful eye of Kipp Schulties. The re-mastered course won the coveted 2008 Golf Digest " America's Best New Courses-Best New Remodeled Category" Award. A par 71 6,906 yard layout is surrounded by a forest of slash pines, palms and lush vegetation indigenous to South Florida. The beauty of the course stands in its own splendor. Carpet like fairways and manicured greens provide the gateway to some of the most memorable and challenging holes of golf you will find anywhere.
