About Lost Tree Club
Lost Tree Club is an exclusive, private 18-hole facility located in North Palm Beach, Florida. Originally designed by Mark Mahannah in 1961, the course underwent a major renovation in 2002, designed by Jack Nicklaus. We maintain TifEagle bermudagrass greens, seashore paspalum tees, Celebration bermudagrass fairways and TifSport rough. The irrigation system is supplied through a reverse osmosis plant and consists of Toro Lynx central control. In the summer of 2021, we completed the first phase of the golf course master plan by expanding our practice area. This included rebuilding all putting greens, range tee and range field targets, as well as the addition of a new chipping green and practice bunkers.
