Homes, Links to Area and Water Among Options for WPB Golf Course

Ever since West Palm Beach razed the post-War Era clubhouse of its municipal golf course a year ago, residents have waited for news and grimaced at rumors of how the city might reconfigure one of the south end’s most beloved features.

Now they have the beginnings of an answer.

At a city commission workshop Sept. 8, consultants from Redevelopment Management Associates (RMA) laid out possibilities ranging from sprucing up the 196-acre championship course with new entrance ways and a few amenities to shrinking the course to add hundreds of homes and condos, bike trails, a waterfront clubhouse, fishing pier and kayak-launch area.
