Colony West's Championship Course

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. Fifty-two 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. 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.

The Glades Course

The Glades Course is widely recognized as one of the finest executive layouts in the area and ideal for those new to the game. With 18 holes that play fast thanks to the par 65 layout consisting of par 3s & 4s with just a single par 5 and 3 sets of tees, even an experienced golfer will be challenged. The forward tees provide a friendly experience for the recreational, beginner or junior golfer.

  • What a MESS! This is the most disorganized golf club I ever visited! Lines 8 to 10 deep in the Pro Shop waiting to check in. No clearly marked restrooms near check in. They just jam as many players...  more »
  • Fairways were tight, and the greens very good. Its a tough, but fair track. I enjoyed the golf, but the construction makes it complicated to park, pay and get set up. No driving range, so no warm up.....  more »
