The Jones Course
Since 1994, this Rees Jones designed course has welcomed the LPGA Tour on numerous occasions which is surely testament to the quality of the layout. Jones took inspiration from the classic links courses where the game began and thus players can expect to encounter humps, bumps and hollows on their way around the Jones Course. A large number of bunkers, natural marsh areas and great expanses of water also add to the challenge which can be enjoyed by golfers of all levels thanks to numerous tee positions. From the tips the course measures in excess of 7,000 yards and yet it can also be reduced to a more manageable 5,131 yards from the forward most tees.
The Hills Course
Designed by the prominent American architect, Arthur Hills, the course joined the LPGA International party in 1997 and is very much a classical Floridian layout that, from the tips, measures 6,984 yards which is long enough to challenge even the longest of hitters. The Hills course calls for the player to use mind over muscles in order to safely negotiate the natural wetlands, narrow pine corridors, small greens and strategically placed water hazards that provide the courses defenses.
The main practice area at the LPGA International Club is an impressive 80,000 square foot area with no less than 10 target greens for you to aim for as well as an area specifically designed to practice hitting from side hill lies. Six practice putting greens ensure you can get warmed up with the flat stick no matter how busy the club is on any given day and a dedicated short game area allow you to practice all shots from 100 yards and in.
In addition to all of this, there is also a three-hole Practice Academy that features a par 5, par 4 and a par 3. All practice facilities are maintained to the same high standard as the two championship courses to ensure you aren’t caught out during your round.
