Lake Worth Golf Club

History

The Lake Worth Golf Club is located in the City of Lake Worth in Palm Beach County. In 1923, the City of Lake Worth approved a proposition to build a golf course along the City’s lakefront.  The golf course architectural firm of Langford and Moreau was hired to design an 18-hole golf course.  Plans included dredging the bottom of Lake Worth to fill in a considerable portion along the lake front.  A year later, a permit to fill part of the lakefront was received from the U.S. War Department for the construction of the golf course.

Designed under the supervision of William Langford, the nine holes of the golf course officially opened on November 11, 1926 at a cost of the $400,000.  The keys of the clubhouse were presented by Lake Worth’s Mayor to Cameron Trent, the golf professional.

In 1948, the completed 18-hole golf course was opened for play after golf course architect Dick Wilson redesigned the original holes and added nine more.
