On the Northeast Coast of Florida, in close proximity to Palm Coast, sits a single of golf’s most scenic resorts.
PGA Head Golfing Skilled Eric Sargent shared what can make the golf at Hammock Beach Resort so unique:
“Our Jack Nicklaus signature design Ocean Training course and our Tom Watson signature layout Conservatory Class are very ideal by golfers in the know. The Ocean Program has 6 holes that are right on the ocean, virtually a mile of ocean entrance golf with spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean. Our Conservatory Golfing Training course is at the moment rated the hardest and longest in the State of Florida at 7,776 yards from the again tees at a program slope and ranking of 155 and 77.8. These are two very unique golf experiences that we know golfers will enjoy.”
In 2016, Hurricane Matthew impacted the resort as a category 3 hurricane, just 25 miles off of its shoreline. Sustained winds of 90 mph for a 4-hour interval of time at superior tide manufactured a storm surge of 9 to 11 toes fully flooding the Ocean Course with salt h2o. As a result, all of the actively playing surfaces died – fully destroying the golf program. Thankfully, there was no sizeable injury to the resort or people in the community.
The Ocean Training course reopened in 2017 with absolutely replanted turf “wall-to-wall” (tees, fairways, roughs, and greens) with a Paspalum Platinum grass, 1 of only a number of golfing programs to use this grass which is normally used for greens surfaces. The Ocean Training course mows 70 acres at fairway height which presents the class an fascinating & pristine sense with pretty little rough.
The dune line was also rebuilt to not only reinforce it but also to give golfers on the class much better sights of the Ocean although taking part in. With these enhancements, The Ocean Study course is taking part in much better than at any time.
Hammock Seaside Vacation resort is continually rebuilding and earning enhancements — In 2021, The Conservatory Training course underwent a $1.2 million bunker renovation with Tom Watson Style and design overseeing the project. Complexes for both equally the fairway and greenside bunkers had been redesigned for aesthetics and functionality. Needless to say, the bunkering is pristine and adds a new element to this outstanding study course.
