Lone Palm also offers social memberships and an exciting calendar of events throughout the year. Our casual, friendly atmosphere is the perfect place to bring your family or to host an event. We warmly welcome you to Lone Palm and invite you to consider all of the amenities that we have to offer.
Lone Palm is a traditional private golf club located in Lakeland, Florida (approximately halfway between Tampa and Orlando, right off the I-4 highway).
Mr. George Jenkins, founder of Publix Super Markets Inc. and of Lone Palm, had a vision for the club to be a great place to meet and play golf with friends, enjoy a meal, relax and socialize, all in an informal atmosphere supported by a friendly staff. Today, more than 50 years later, our club still holds true to that vision. Golf members at Lone Palm enjoy a relaxed and private club experience with NO TEE TIMES.
The course was designed by Dick Wilson, also known for designing Bay Hill and Doral’s Blue Monster, and is set on 400 acres of beautiful Florida scenery, rich in wildlife. We believe that members of all abilities should enjoy the game, so we have 5 sets of tee markers ranging from 5,179 to 7,090 yards. We have three PGA professionals on staff who provide excellent instruction and host great golf events for members.
Members enjoy delicious meals expertly created by our executive chef and his team. We pride ourselves in making good meals that members love, especially steak and seafood. Members can expect great culinary displays at our famous Sunday brunch and other holiday events such as Easter, Mother’s Day and more. We have a large clubhouse with men’s and ladies’ locker rooms, a small fitness facility as well as casual and formal dining areas. Our club does not offer tennis or swimming. There are homes and condos on property. The club is not directly involved in home sales, but one of our members, Susan Seitz, is actively involved in listing and selling homes at or near Lone Palm. Her email address is email@example.com and her phone number is (863) 680-3322.

At Lone Palm, our teaching philosophy is to make the game of golf enjoyable for all golfers, regardless of their age or skill level. We pride ourselves on quality golf instuction from certified PGA golf professionals and apprentices. We employ a variety of teaching methods and tools that will enable all golfers to reach the highest level of play possible, including video analysis, teaching aids and comprehensive drills. By beginning our teaching with the fundamental concepts of grip, aim and posture, we are able to transform students’ swing into a consistent motion that can easily be duplicated on the course. We provide knowledgeable instruction that encompasses all aspects of the game including full swing and short game. Below is a schedule of the instruction rates for the various lesson services that we offer.
At Lone Palm, we strive to promote golf as a family sport and it is our goal to help every golfer achieve the highest level of skill possible. With us, junior golfers are no exception. Junior Golf Clinics are offered every Wednesday at 4:00 p.m. The fee for the Clinic is $15 per junior per day. The junior clinics are taught by Lone Palm’s PGA apprentices and are limited to children between six and fifteen years of age.
Beyond developing the basic skills needed for the sport, we understand that forward tees on the course are too long for some adults and may be insurmountable for children. Our Junior Golf Course, developed in conjunction with the standards of the U.S. Kids Family Program, aims to encourage a greater presence of children on the course.
We have added two sets of color-coordinated tees to each hole. As junior golfers improve, they will progressively advance to the next set of tees. Junior golfers will be required to track and post their scores each month in the Pro Shop. Golfers may also enroll in a contest program, which will award junior golfers for various achievements. The contest season lasts from October 1st until June 15th.
