Lantana Golf Club offers you a little bit of everything that makes golf enjoyable - some very fun and challenging holes, fairways and greens that are in excellent condition, rolling hills and some beautiful scenery, plenty of water, and soft fluffy white sand bunkers! At 7,147 yards from the tips with a slope of 130 and a rating of 74.6, Lantana will challenge the expert players, while the average golfers will find the course very playable from the other four tee boxes. Strategically placed steep faced bunkers (90 of them!), mounds and grass swales, water on 7 holes, and the fast greens make for a very enjoyable round of golf.
Lantana Golf Club is semi-private now (February 2008) and only 40 memberships are available. When all 40 are sold the golf course will become private and for members use only. You can learn more about this outstanding golf course by reading .
