Visit Atlantis, Florida, for an eye-pleasing country-club community known for its gorgeous fairways and verdant greens in pastures where herds of Brahman cattle once grazed
Built in 1959, the City of Atlantis is tucked in the heart of Palm Beach County, with Boynton Beach’s turquoise waters to the south and the vibrant West Palm Beach area down below. Beloved as one of the most aesthetically pleasing country-club communities in the United States, links lovers travel from near and far for relaxation and play in an unrivaled (and well-manicured) golf paradise surrounded by outdoor recreation and sandy beaches.
Though tiny (Atlantis has a full-time population of just around 2,000), the dazzling golf destination delivers big on Florida beauty. Play perfectly manicured, award-winning courses, then sip a tropical post-game cocktail while the sun sets behind the palms. Two golf resorts reside in Atlantis proper: the 18-hole, semi-private Atlantis Country Club and the private 27-hole Lost City Golf Club. Off the course, dine on elevated surf and turf like jumbo shrimp and fresh mahi mahi at Atlantis Grill & Bar. Make a special trip for Polar Bakery’s Scandinavian-influenced breads and flaky pastries made daily.
With 834 sprawling acres, Atlantis — once known as Mulberry Farms — was owned by former State Senator Philip D. Lewis. During this time, Senator Lewis formed the Mission Company for the purpose of raising Brahman cattle. In 1958, Nathan Hunt and Paul Kintz purchased the 828-acre ranch and the remaining areas along Lantana Road. With engineers Brockway, Weber and Brockway, and designer Ernest L. Green, they sought to develop the community surrounding Atlantis. Along with Atlantis’ luxurious destination golf community, HCA Florida JFK Center and the area’s surrounding doctors’ offices are a primary commercial industry.
