- The Palm Beaches Announce New Access to Five Great Courses for One Low Price -

THE PALM BEACHES, Fla. (Feb. 27, 2013) - The Palm Beaches invites golfers to tee off at five diverse courses in Florida's Golf Capital® now through April with the new Golf Passport. Starting at just $240, the passport includes 18-holes on four of the destination's public courses and 9-holes at the John Prince Golf Learning Center. It also includes a free bucket of range balls and a bonus coupon valid for an extra round at any one of the five courses.

"The new Golf Passport is the perfect way for golfers of all skill levels to experience five of Palm Beach County's premier public courses," stated CVB President & CEO Jorge Pesquera. "While enthusiasts may be familiar with our resort courses, the public courses of the destination are truly hidden gems that provide challenging fairways and bends, along with the beautiful scenery you would expect in The Palm Beaches."

The passport allows golfers to experience one of only five Audubon International Classic Signature Golf Courses in the world at the Osprey Point Golf Course, as well as the nearby Southwinds Golf Course, known for its lush foliage and diverse birds and wildlife, both of which are in Boca Raton. In Lake Worth the passport gives golfers access to the Park Ridge Golf Course featuring some of the highest elevations in The Palm Beaches. The Okeeheelee Golf Course, located in West Palm Beach's Okeeheelee Park, provides a challenging course paired with picturesque views of the surrounding lakes. The final location included in the Golf Passport is John Prince Golf Learning Center of Lake Worth, an innovative learning and practice facility managed by Palm Beach County Parks & Recreation.

In Florida's Golf Capital®, visitors will find more than 160 public and private golf courses, including the Boca Raton Resort & Club, The Breakers Palm Beach, and PGA National Resort & Spa, to name just a few. The Breakers Ocean Course is Florida's first 18-hole golf course, located directly on site and redesigned by Brian Silva in 2000. In addition to some of the best courses in the world, The Palm Beaches is also home to numerous pro shops, teaching facilities, driving ranges, the Junior Golf Academy, The PGA of America and two of its most highly anticipated tournaments, The Allianz Championship and Honda Classic.
