Posted on: January 5, 2022 | Read Time: 4 minutes

Surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, Indian River, and St. Lucie Inlet, Sailfish Point’s Jack Nicklas Signature Golf
Course boasts dramatic, jaw-dropping views from every hole. This nationally acclaimed par-72 course features lush, Bermuda grass fairways, bold, high-flashed bunkers, and two signature oceanside holes. The impeccable and ecologically sensitive course care also creates an Audubon-certified paradise enjoyed by both Sailfish Point Members and the nearby wildlife.

Starting in the spring of 2021, the course underwent a comprehensive renovation that will forever change how it’s played. Discover what Members are looking forward to with the unveiling of this newly designed course.

40 Years of Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf

For the past 40 years, internationally acclaimed Jack Nicklaus has remained the only architect for Sailfish Point’s course. First built in 1981, this was the ninth Signature Course ever composed by Nicklaus and his team. The 2007 course renovation included a recontouring of all the areas around the greens as well as repaving the cart paths with aggregate cement. However, as the community celebrates its 40th birthday, this newest renovation has been the biggest since the course’s inception.

A Full Golf Course Renovation

During the recent $7 million renovations, not a single blade of grass was left untouched. Many holes underwent major changes that added additional playability and strategy. New sets of forward tees were installed on all 18 holes, creating an optimized layout of ten different playing combinations. With five new sets of forward tees ranging from 5,001 to 7,081 yards, the new layout ensures enjoyment for any skill level. Additionally, the Practice Areas were transformed to include two driving areas on the north and south ends of the course. Sailfish Point has also installed the innovative Trackman putting analysis system in the Practice Area, further assisting Members in their gameplay.
