Coral Creek Club in Placida, Florida, has reopened its course for members following a renovation by Tom Fazio.
The course was originally designed by Fazio and opened in 2000. The goal of the renovation was to improve the golf experience, protecting the original design while also preparing it for modern golf.
The project included re-grassing playing surfaces with new bermuda grasses, updating bunker positions and replacing sand, relocating tees, expanding the practice facilities, as well as the addition of new drainage. Overgrown vegetation has also been cleared from the property with native areas restored.
“We are excited to showcase the outstanding course improvements made by Fazio’s team to our many members who are returning to Florida for the winter months,” said Tom Noyes, the club’s general manager. “The renovation project has greatly enhanced the superb design and will elevate recognition of the Coral Creek Club as one of the finest courses in the state. Importantly, the course can be enjoyed by golfers of all levels but also will present a challenging test for the very best players.”
