THE CLASSICS BY GARY PLAYER
Surrounded by sub-tropical woodlands, this 18-hole championship course features tree-lined fairways and gentle contours. Within a serene natural setting, Gary Player designed this masterpiece as the epitome of a club player’s golf course. It requires planning and strategy backed up by the solid golf skills that characterize a true club player. His design reflects his philosophy that a series of well-hit shots should provide the golfer with a reasonable opportunity to make par and that a golf course should celebrate the natural environment that encompasses it.
FLAMINGO ISLAND BY ROBERT TRENT JONES SR.
One of the game’s most prolific and innovative golf course architects, Robert Trent Jones, Sr. designed Flamingo Island to emphasize the hallmarks of his architectural style. The course is characterized by extensive sculpting and shaping of the land. He implemented strategic deployment of water as a playing hazard and a scenic complement to the course as well as the use of multiple teeing areas with large, contoured greens. This combination of design elements yields 18 holes of pure Robert Trent Jones, Sr. magic.
THE MUSTANG BY LEE TREVINO
Lee Trevino’s philosophy of making the game challenging but fair even for average golfers is evident on the masterful Mustang championship course. Designed with a forgiving layout where a player can recover from a bad shot, this course will have you coming back time after time. Twelve lakes decorate the landscape and extensive bunkering is found throughout. However, Trevino designed generous landing areas and fair entries to the greens. At 7,200 yards from the back tees, it is a course that provides varied and spectacular conditions for players of all skill levels.
