Sailfish Point Golf Club is a private, member-owned club centrally located in the Sailfish Point Community, that is regularly rated by Golfweek Magazine as one of the very best Residential Courses in Florida and within the United States.

The Jack Nicklaus Signature Course at Sailfish Point – the 532-acre oceanfront community on Hutchinson Island 45 minutes north of Florida’s Palm Beaches – has been named to Golfweek’s 2021 list of “Best Residential Courses.”

The annual selection of the country’s 200 top golf community-focused layouts is determined by Golfweek’s team of more than 850 course evaluators. Each year, the raters survey over 3,600 facilities, grading each in accordance with Golfweek’s 10 standards of evaluation. Sailfish Point ranks 100th on the prestigious list.

Beginning in the spring of 2021, the golf course will undergo the most comprehensive and impactful renovation in its storied 40-year history. Led by Nicklaus Design, the project will yield an eminently playable routing with strategic options for players of varying ages and abilities.

New forward tees will be installed on each of the 18 holes, creating a 4,500-layout optimized for slower swing speeds. In all, there will be six sets of tees capable of producing 10 different playing combinations. The back tees will stretch to 7,111 yards, enabling Sailfish Point to continue hosting member and PGA sectional events.

Sailfish Point Golf Club stretches along ocean & river offering 7,088-yards with par 72.

Steps away from the Sailfish Point Clubhouse and the first tee is a newly expanded and completely re-imagined practice facility and short-game area. The area features a 10,000-square-foot practice green, multiple target greens and expanded teeing areas on the north and south ends of the range.
