One of the most exclusive private clubs in America this course is a staple on golfers’ bucket lists the world over. Although the property sits adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean the only detectable evidence of its proximity to the water is the occasional brief glimpse of the beach from the back nine and the ever present wind. Expertly routed over two sand dunes, the terrain here provides elevation changes that are the antithesis of stereotypical Florida golf. The club is equally well known as Ben Hogan’s favorite spot to warm up for The Masters as it is for its incredible locker room that has served as inspiration for other clubs’ locker rooms all across America.
Local Knowledge: Local legend says that the perfectly maintained and inviting looking swimming pool has not been used in decades.
