Jack Nicklaus’s “Window to the Sea” at Sailfish Point is often described as breathtaking. The rolling ocean is a welcome distraction from this memorable golf experience, culminating with a final putt on the 18th green overlooking the Atlantic. Situated on Florida’s Treasure Coast on the southernmost tip of Hutchinson Island, the private club community’s par-72 championship golf course is an oasis for Members seeking both precision and panoramic beauty. The newly updated Jack Nicklaus signature course is surrounded by almost every thinkable coastal landscape. Its natural beauty, however, is just the beginning. Let’s delve into what else sets it apart as a beacon of luxury and challenge.

Multi-Million Dollar Renovation Elevates Golf Experience

Recognized by Golfweek as one of the nation’s top residential courses, the signature course underwent a transformative renovation in 2021. Since the course’s inception in 1981, golfing at Sailfish Point has always held marks for unparalleled, world-class design. The 2021 renovations managed by the Nicklaus Design Team kept the course’s enduring character, while focusing on playability and strategy. The result was a design that caters to all skill levels, with five sets of tees ranging from 5,001 to 7,081 yards. The recent renovations included reducing formal sand areas, introducing advanced-tech bunker liners, expanding putting surfaces, and more. The Practice Areas were also transformed to include two driving areas on the north and south ends of the course. Sailfish Point has also installed an innovative Trackman putting analysis system in the Practice Area, further assisting Members in their gameplay.

The signature 18th hole nicknamed “Window to the Sea” offers a boundless view of the Atlantic Ocean. This prime setting, however, is not just a remarkable experience for Members. As an Audubon-certified course, there are many sights of egrets, herons, ibis, wood storks, and more that call the grounds home as well.
