Hammock Creek Golf Club is the first golf course in Florida designed by the father-son team of Jack Nicklaus and Jack II. The course, which has hosted several events on the Golden Bear Tour, is said to be a formidable test from the championship tees for even the most skilled players. The challenges, though they are subtle and give a seemingly spacious appearance to the course, are a force to be reckoned with. The layout features multi-tiered greens that play fast and rolling fairways that have generous landing area, but they can be misleading. Mature pine forests and native wetlands also come into play throughout. The design incorporates several interesting risk-reward opportunities and there are also five sets of tees to make it approachable to a range of skill levels.

Hammock Creek is my favorite course to play in the area. It’s pricer than public courses, but it has a private Country club feel. I treat myself to around here every time I come down to Florida.

Excellent facilities, range, club house and cart loaded GPS. Five sets of tees offeringl the distance to challange every level player. Traps were well groomed but be alert to the change when in a waste area. Greens were in good shape, fairly large and quick but not gimmicked. Pace of play was good. Possibly the wind (c.10-15mph) discouraged large numbers from play? A good experience. Would beglad to play it again.

Florida courses use water for both visual appeal and to make the play more challenging. I'd say they used it more for visual appeal here, which is fine for a 20 handicapper like me. Most holes have a safe approach side and the conditions were very good.
