A New Wave of Championship Golf Emerges

As golf continues to surge in popularity across Florida, a new wave of renowned designers and industry professionals are establishing new cutting-edge facilities and championship courses on Florida’s Treasure Coast. One standout option is the newly announced golf course at Glynlea Country Club in Port St. Lucie. As the inaugural signature course designed by 17-time PGA Tour champion Jim Furyk, the Glynlea golf course offers a tour-level experience that remains accessible for beginners. Spanning 4,249 to 6,755 yards with four sets of tees, the course at Glynlea challenges conventions with its unique par 72 layout, featuring five par fives and five par threes instead of the typical four of each. Furyk’s emphasis on bunkers as strategic elements rather than mere obstacles adds to the course’s character, guiding players’ strategies and directing them towards preferred angles of approach to the greens. Scrub pines and natural features surround the greens, creating a striking landscape for all to admire and enjoy.

Florida’s Treasure Coast is increasingly drawing golf enthusiasts thanks to its reputation for hosting prestigious championship golf events. The South Florida section of the PGA Tour is particularly renowned for its top-tier competitions, including PGA Tour Qualifying events that attract the world’s best players.

Founded in 1972, the event brings together the world’s highest-ranking PGA players for a week-long, 72-hole stroke play competition, with proceeds benefitting the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation. For those who prefer to hit the greens themselves, the Treasure Coast Golf Association is a key player in promoting local interest in golf. They help enhance the region’s golf scene by offering a variety of championships and tournaments for juniors, men, and women of all ages.

Pop StrokePopStroke in Tradition features two 18-hole putting courses made entirely of synthetic turf, replicating the challenges of traditional golf.

In the private club sector, Glynlea Country Club is set to offer an innovative golf experience to its Members. Featuring a Toptracer Aquatic Driving Range, the club uses advanced floating golf balls that allow golfers to aim precisely at floating greens. The system tracks every shot, providing valuable data to refine one’s swing and improve performance. Golf professionals are available to offer training sessions on enhancing follow-through, or casual players can enjoy a Top Golf-style entertainment experience with friends. Additionally, a fully stocked golf pro shop provides all the equipment, apparel, and accessories needed to elevate a player’s game.

Teeing Off the Treasure Coast’s Newest Golf Club Lifestyle

The innovation at Glynlea extends far beyond its golf offerings. The gated golf community also is planning to use 10 acres of land to create a unique, resident-exclusive Club Campus. From a top-notch fitness center to friendly games of pickleball or tennis on the racquet courts, there are ample ways to stay active. As the day winds down, the resort-style pool invites residents to relax and soak up the Florida sunshine. Additionally, residents will have access to Wylder’s community-wide amenities, including lakeside recreational areas, charming pocket parks, and an expansive 113-acre Wylder Park.

Spanning approximately 560 acres, Glynlea will offer a diverse range of residential offerings from the $400s to over $1 million. Its variety includes single-family homes, townhomes, and villas, all graced with stunning views of the golf course, lakefront, and surrounding wetlands. Crafted by the nation’s premier builders, these homes prioritize energy efficiency and offer extensive personalization options, enabling buyers to tailor their space to suit their family and lifestyle. An HOA takes care of maintenance, landscaping, and community amenities, providing residents with peace of mind whether they’re near or far from home.

After a “tee off” groundbreaking celebration in late October, anticipation is building for the grand reveal of Glynlea Country Club. To stay updated on the latest news, be sure to register your interest at GlynleaCountryClub.com.
