The Timuquana Course

The services of Donald Ross, the country's most famous golf architect, were obtained to work with the original Green Committee composed of J. H. Tucker, Jr. and A. C. Ulmer, in designing an 18-hole course through the wilderness of forest and scrub. Soon after completion of the course, Knowlton G. "Snake" Ames and C. E. Van Vleck donated an additional 65 traps to enhance the challenge of the fairways. Later, the Club engaged Robert Trent Jones, noted golf architect, to provide it with a long-range plan for continued improvement, much of which was implemented in the late 1950s.

Beginning in early May, 2011 the entire golf course was re-grassed, bunkers sand replaced, extensive tree work and understory clearing accomplished, and overall drainage improved.  The fairways and tees were sprigged with the new and lush Celebration Bermuda, and the green surrounds were sodded with Tift Grand, a tight, dense hybrid that can be maintained at low heights to enhance chipping options.  The greens were sprigged with Tifeagle, resulting in firm fast putting surfaces.   The course re-opened for play on October 13 to rave reviews.
