Client Course Description

Home to the PGA TOUR Champions TimberTech Championship and The Jim McLean Junior Championship, The Old Course at Broken Sound Club is a secluded golf course originally designed by Gene Bates. Following the remodel, residents and pros can expect a premier golfing experience every match.



Designer Notes

Driven by Broken Sound Club’s ongoing efforts to strategically improve and enhance its facilities for members and guests alike, the project aimed to advance the objective of sustainability, improve the overall playing conditions and replace infrastructure.

The par 72 Old Course is a pure core golf course without housing. Among the complete changes and additions to the course, many of the holes have been reimagined to give players more options on how to play each hole and suit their game. In addition, the classic style bunkers are now easier to access and designed to be fair and playable. The course surface is carefully composed of TifEagle Bermuda grass on the greens, Celebration Bermudagrass on the fairways and rough areas, and Sunday Bermuda grass on the tee surfaces. The beauty of the redesigned Old Course is in the details, and by challenging the low handicap player and allowing various openings to most of the greens for the higher handicap person, the redesigned Old Course creates a thought-provoking game for players at every level.
