The Course

From that first tee shot, to the final putt, a round at Colony West is an excellent experience.

Opened in 1971 for the Jackie Gleason Classic (renamed the Honda Classic) as a monstrous par-72, 7,553-yard track, Jack Nicklaus and the Tournament Committee said the course was too tough for the event. 52 of the 137 bunkers were removed, but Mr. Nicklaus still shot a 78 and took a 7 on No. 3 (No. 12 today). When the clubhouse was built in 1981, the course was shortened into a par 70 (6,648 yards) and the nines were reversed.

Devlin and VonHagge designed this course, which challenges even experienced golfers. It has been rated by Golf Digest to be among the 50 top courses in the United States. The signature hole on the Championship Course is #12, a 452-yard, par 4, requiring a tee shot through a cypress forest to an island green. Colony West's Championship Course offers golfers one of the most challenging courses in South Florida. Strategic bunkering protects small, well-manicured greens, requiring players to think their way around the course to take advantage of scoring opportunities.

This 7,258 yards, par 71 course has narrow fairways, a deep rough as well as plenty of water and bunkers. Enjoy the fast greens and the excitement of knowing you're on one of the best.
