The Banyan Cay Resort: A new Jack Nicklaus designed golf course

Golf Course Update

We are in the 9th week of golf course construction. We are putting irrigation on holes 12 through 16 and installing drainage on those holes as well. Drainage includes greens, fairways and bunkers. The pump house has been relocated and by weeks end we should have water back to the golf course. Jack Nicklaus possibly will be out soon for another site visit.

Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course

The world-class Nicklaus Signature Course at Banyan Cay will be unlike most South Florida layouts, which get their personality from the typically flat terrain. The Banyan Cay course will showcase a personality and character highlighted by subtle changes of elevation- with as much as 25 feet in changes within the golf course, or more than double most courses in South Florida. Additionally, the course will feature gently rolling fairways, land forms, various water features, and bunkers that provide both aesthetics and strategy.

The course layout will provide members and guests with a challenging, yet playable golf experience. The new par-72 design currently features five sets of tees to accommodate players of all skill levels, and the course yardage is expected to range from 4,800 yards to a championship length, tipping out at 7,200 yards. The practice facility, as well as the course’s opening hole, will be located in front of the new full-service Banyan Cay clubhouse. Inspired by West Indies décor, the clubhouse will feature member facilities, grille, golf shop, and social areas for member activities.
