JACK NICKLAUS SIGNATURE GOLF COURSE: STUNNING WATER VIEWS FROM EVERY HOLE
Completed in 1981, Sailfish Point’s nationally acclaimed golf course was updated by original designer, Jack Nicklaus, in 2007. Every picturesque hole boasts a water view, be it the Atlantic Ocean, Indian River, or the St. Lucie Inlet. A steady sea breeze generated by the nearby Gulf Stream comes into play on almost every round of golf. View the course.
Play begins just steps from the Sailﬁsh Point Clubhouse, where both a full-and short-game practice area allow golfers to hone their skills. The first tee then beckons, just a short walk or golf cart ride away. Five sets of tees ranging from 5,001 to 7,081 yards allow players of all skill levels to enjoy the course. Lush, Bermuda grass fairways and greens blend with bold, high-flashed bunkers, ultimately leading to the par 4 signature 18th hole, dubbed “Window on the Sea” for its remarkable ocean view.
HIGHLY-RATED PRIVATE MEMBER-owned golf club within FLORIDA’s premier coastal COMMUNITY
Sailfish Point Golf Club is a private, member-owned club centrally located in the Sailfish Point Community. The course is regularly rated by Golfweek Magazine as one of the very best Residential Courses in Florida and within the U.S. In addition to its captivating Jack Nicklaus Signature Course and comprehensive practice facility, the Club boasts four full-time teaching professionals who assist members with game improvement plans tailored to their individual games.
A fully outfitted golf shop offers a full selection of equipment and apparel. Regular events and tournaments for both women and men build deep and lasting friendships among members and make for many a spirited competition. A “no tee times” policy keeps the course always available for member play. Multiple tee boxes allow for a course that can range from challenging to ultimately playable but always interesting. All of this and more make Sailfish Point one of the most desirable of all Florida oceanfront golf communities.

NICKLAUS DESIGN TO LEAD GOLF COURSE RENOVATION IN 2021
Beginning in the spring of 2021, the golf course will undergo the most comprehensive and impactful renovation in its storied history, one that will forever change the way it’s played and enjoyed by members, guests and future residents of this luxury coastal community.
The 2021 “reimagination,” led once again by Nicklaus Design, will result in an eminently playable layout, one that sets up perfectly for players of varying ages, abilities and ambitions. The proposed project schedule envisions an April start, re-grassing in August and reopening in early December in time for the peak winter golf season.
