Question: The news below is not being promoted or distributed by the City of Lake Worth.

Does anyone know why not?

If any other golf course in South Florida received this news below we wouldn’t hear the end of it:

Press Release. “Lake Worth Golf Club Featured as Florida Historic Golf Trail Course of the Month”.

Secretary of State Ken Detzner announced [August 1st] that Lake Worth Golf Club, located in the city of Lake Worth in Palm Beach County, has been chosen as the featured course on the Florida Historic Golf Trail for the month of August.

press release:

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 course. Plans included dredging the bottom of Lake Worth to fill in a considerable portion along the lake front. Designed under the supervision of William Langford, the first nine holes of the golf course officially opened on November 12, 1926 at a cost of $400,000. In 1948, the completed 18-hole golf course opened for play after golf course architect Dick Wilson redesigned the original holes and added nine more.

“Lake Worth Golf Club is honored to be chosen as the Florida Historic Golf Trail’s featured golf course for the month of August 2017,” said Matt DeRosa, Lead Golf Professional at Lake Worth Golf Club. “Once a favorite golf course to the great Babe Ruth, Lake Worth Golf Club offers a fun and exciting round for all golfers. Located along the intra-coastal waterway, the golf course showcases a wide variety of wildlife, as well as spectacular views of Palm Beach Island.”
