Palm Beach council approves upgrades for Breakers Oceans Course

Posted On: 01-16-2018

The 18-hole Ocean Course at The Breakers is poised to get some upgrades, but fans of the course shouldn’t need to worry about major changes.

Town Council unanimously approved last week the resort’s request to make changes, including more than tripling the size of the golf training building to 2,366 square feet from about 700, and replacing a bathroom building. The owners also will be re-aligning and enlarging the tees, moving bunkers and shifting around the greens, James Crowley, an attorney representing The Breakers, said at Wednesday’s meeting.

But that doesn’t mean that they will be making serious changes to the alignment of the holes that people have come to know, he added.

“It’s going to play the same way with just some minor modifications here and there,” Crowley told the council, also noting that it had been 17 years since any renovation.

The upgrades are necessary because parts of the course are quickly becoming outdated. He added that the update to the bathroom building, now only 267 square feet, will be “night and day better than what’s there.”

According to town documents, architect Rees Jones designed the improvements. The Breakers were not seeking variances, and the changes were allowed by the code but needed council approval.

The council members asked and Crowley agreed that the owners would comply with any needs that the town has for easements in the utilities undergrounding project.

Crowley also said The Breakers would work with the Pendleton Avenue neighbors on landscaping as officials have in the past on similar projects.

The proposal must now go before the Architectural Commission before construction can begin.
