While Jim Furyk has been a familiar face on PGA Championship greens, his latest venture may have been his long-term destiny. The 17-time PGA champion is the mastermind behind the design of a new championship golf course in Port St. Lucie, Florida. Located within Glynlea Country Club at Wylder, the legendary golf champion has created his first course design which is drawing praise across the industry. From current golf enthusiasts to those wanting to get into the game, the course represents an experience that will be as fun as it is challenging. Collaboratively developed by GreenPointe Developers and managed by Hampton Golf, the new course is on track to open this winter. Let’s delve deeper into the construction timelines for this future golf epicenter.

Construction Rapidly Progressing on Furyk’s Golf Course Design

The golf course will be the first part of Glynlea Country Club to open. Construction is moving swiftly, with groundwork complete and irrigation installation underway. The first tee-offs are expected to take place this winter. Designed by Jim Furyk himself, the course aims to provide a tour-level experience while remaining accessible for beginners. This unconventional par-72 layout features five par fives and five par threes, deviating from the standard four and four. Spanning 4,249 to 6,755 yards with four sets of tees, the course is strategically designed to use bunkers as guiding elements, directing players toward preferred angles of approach to the greens rather than being mere obstacles. Surrounding the greens are scrub pines and natural features, creating a picturesque landscape for everyone to appreciate and enjoy.

Toptracer Practice Range – A Welcome Bonus

Renowned club management company Hampton Golf will not only manage the course, but also provide innovative offerings that enhance the Member experience. At the heart of their program is the Golf Shop, where Members can find Glynlea Country Club apparel and get fitted for the latest equipment and gear. For those new to golf, professional staff will be available to assist in selecting the right clubs or providing training sessions on the Toptracer Aquatic Driving Range. This state-of-the-art practice facility uses floating golf balls and floating greens, enabling golfers to practice their shots while the system tracks and analyzes every swing. Members and guests on the day of play can use this facility to improve their swing or enjoy casual Top Golf-style entertainment with friends. Following a practice session, they can head to Fairways Tavern to enjoy craft cocktails and casual dining options alfresco on the covered patio.

Campus-Style Design Elevates Club Amenities

Adding to the golf amenities, Glynlea Country Club is planning to use 10 acres of land to create a unique, Member-exclusive Club Campus. This expansive campus will be anchored by a tropical oasis, boasting both resort-style and lap pools. The Glynlea Fitness and Wellness Center will feature a modern fitness center, tennis courts, and pickleball courts, providing numerous options for staying active. Additionally, residents will enjoy access to Wylder’s community-wide amenities, including lakeside recreational areas, charming pocket parks, and the sprawling 113-acre Wylder Park.
