Hobe Sound Golf Club completed a major course renovation in the summer of 2019 and re-opened for members on Oct. 30, 2019.
Tom Fazio II Golf Design led the project, which included wall-to-wall re-grassing, adjusting the teeing grounds to add length to the course, improving the bunkers, and installation of a new, state-of-the-art irrigation system.
“I am thankful to be starting with such a good palette," said Fazio II at the beginning of the project. "The natural characteristics of this property are what golf designers dream of.” Fazio is a third generation golf architect based in Jupiter, FL, whose portfolio of courses includes Quail Valley Golf Club in Vero Beach, FL; Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, NJ; Trump National in Briarcliff Manor, NY; Great River in Milford, CT; and Tequesta Country Club in Tequesta, FL.
“The sandy white soil, pines, oaks and scrub oak are the ideal site for golf,” continued Fazio. “We worked to exploit these features to create a more sustainable and environment-friendly course.
“My goal was to greatly improve the strategic nature of the golf course; making it more challenging for the better players, less penal for the higher handicapped players, and a course that plays different each day for all players,” he added.
Hobe Sound Golf Club is owned by its Equity Members. The Board of Governors has been working on a multi-year plan to increase membership while at the same time maintaining a no tee time environment and an ideal pace of play for all.
The Club prides itself on presenting the game of golf as it was meant to be: an impeccably maintained course…a warm and friendly membership…and exceptional attention and service. Fine dining and congenial social activities complete the experience for members and their friends and family.
