Sailfish Point, a secluded 532-acre island community at the southern tip of Hutchinson Island has updated its championship par-72 Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course. After receiving several rejuvenating treatments due to Hurricane Wilma and additional priming due to normal wear and tear, the always-alluring course is now ready for its close-up.
According to Nicklaus Design, a team of the world’s most accomplished experts in golf course construction and marketing, Sailfish Point’s Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course is a classic due to its place in history. Noted as the ninth Signature Course ever composed by Nicklaus, now more than ever, the course showcases the golf legend’s most intricately designed holes.
“The changes that were made to this course, though they focused heavily on aesthetics, have enhanced the beauty and the playability of this course tremendously,” states Victor Tortorici, Director of Golf at Sailfish Point. “With every hole replaced and regreened, the course, built in 1981, looks refreshed. And by reestablishing the bunker sand with Pro/Angle sand, the angular grains have improved the conservation of sand on slopes.”
Set between the Atlantic Ocean, Intracoastal Waterway and St. Lucie Inlet, it is easy to understand how mother nature can significantly affect play on this course. By recontouring all areas around the greens, as well as repaving cart paths with aggregate cement, the course will resist further weather damage.
The Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course is known throughout the Treasure Coast for its breathtaking fairway views as well as spectacular golf living. The 18th hole, referred to as the “Window on the Sea”, offers a remarkable ocean view. This 443-yard, par-4 wonder, pays homage to the natural beauty of the pure grounds from which it was created. The 14th hole, equally as appealing, is a 575-yard, par-5 marvel that sits on the St. Lucie Inlet and offers a glimpse of paradise.
Sailfish Point offers luxury oceanfront condominiums, townhomes with river frontage, villas offering carefree single-family living and magnificent estate homes with ocean, river or golf course views from $800,000 to priceless. Many other resort-style amenities are offered, such as eight HarTru(R) world-class tennis courts, a full-service 77-slip protected deepwater marina and 60,000- square-foot oceanfront clubhouse.
