Pinemoor course at the Pinemoor West Golf Club facility features
all the hallmarks of an Old-Florida style golf course.
Originally laid out by Pete Dye, ASGCA, the Pinemoor golf course
opened in 2004.
With its fairways
winding through woodlands and nature preserves, Pinemoor is a
real shotmakers course.

Course originally laid out by Pete Dye at Rotonda Golf &
Country Club in beautiful Rotonda West, FL.
5th Hole -
One of the members
favorite holes is Pinemoors beautiful par three fifth hole.
From the back tees it stretches to 205 yards, with the right
side of the green guarded by water.
Playing at only
134 yards, the forward tees are much closer to the front left
of the green, taking the water pretty much out of play. If you
hit the green, you still have work to do because this green is
tricky and features lots of undulations and difficult pin placements
with the right side of the putting surface slightly sloped toward
The fifth hole
of the Pinemoor golf course is a world-class par three.

4055 Cape Haze Drive Cape Haze, Florida 33946
by John LaFoy, ASGCA, the Cape Haze Links course opened in 1989.
This beautiful and very popular short course features nine par
fours and nine par threes on the Cape Haze peninsula. This links-style
par 63 layout is one that every golfer will enjoy and remember.
Close to the
coast, the Links course also offers gulf breezes and abundant
wildlife throughout its protected wetlands and nature preserves.
One of the members
favorites on the Links course is the 329 yard, par four 11th
hole. Though it might be considered drivable, it is a very strategic
hole with water in front of the green.
play is to hit your drive over water to the island landing area
avoiding an all-too-inviting sandtrap, and then hit your second
shot past the large oak tree and onto the green.

266 Rotonda Circle, Rotonda, Florida 33947
in the Pebble Beach section of Rotonda West, the 18-hole Palms
course has long been one of the most popular golf courses in
With homes situated
only around the outside perimeter of the Palms, it can be called
a core course meaning there are no homes that run
through the center of the course.
The Palms course
is a favorite with the Rotonda Golf & Country Club, members.
Perhaps because it is rated as being more difficult from the
Mens (Black) back tees, yet is also rated as being easier from
the Womens (Red) forward tees.
Six of the Palms'
18 greens are distinctly multi-tiered. They can be challenging,
but they can also be a lot of fun. For golfers looking to better
their handicap, the Palms course is also very forgiving with
its generously wide fairways.
The view from behind the green of the par four 15th hole of the
6,511 yard 18-hole Palms Course at Rotonda Golf &
scenery is very nice at the Palms especially the natural estuary
on #15 where so many indigenous birds can be observed roosting.
The last four
finishing holes are the members favorites, but be warned
about 15, 16, 17 & 18. The last four holes of the Palms can
be very challenging from the back tees.
The par four
15th is rated as the second hardest hole on the Palms course,
primarily because it has water along the entire right side of
its 441 yard long fairway. The 15th green is fast and can be
hard to hit in two. If you stick it on the green in two from
the tips, you deserve a par.
multi-tiered 15th green is only half of the battle, though. With
all of its undulations, this beautifully shaped 6,000 square
foot green has several challenging pin placements.
The final three
finishing holes of the Palms are also very challenging from the
back tees. The 521 yard par five 16th hole is a long dog-leg
right that also has water up the right side. The par four 17th
hole also can be intimidating with its island green requiring
a forced carry over water. The beautiful 415-yard par four 18th
hole leading back to the clubhouse has strategic bunkering throughout,
making for a memorable yet still very challenging finishing hole.
