Unveiling a unique and special focus on the local community, The PGA of America will transform the private PGA Country Club into the open-to-the-public St Lucie Trail Golf Club November 1st. The Club is located adjacent to the PGA Golf Club and the 3 championship courses there. The facility and golf course, originally designed by Jim Fazio in 1988 will continue to be owned and operated by the PGA of America, upholding the same standards as the PGA Club courses.
The St. Lucie Trail Golf Club has undergone a tremendous revitalization program to its tee boxes, fairways, greens and landscaping over the past 18 months, under the direction of Superintendent Dick Gray, a protégé of Pete Dye, designer of the Dye course at the Golf Club. Accordingly, golfers now have the ability to play a picturesque 18 hole championship course for the best value in the local marketplace.
“The PGA of America is extremely proud to unveil St. Lucie Trail Golf Club(SLTGC), as golfers from the local community and surrounding counties can now enjoy unparalleled public access to this beautiful course,’ said Jimmy Terry, PGA G.M. for SLTGC. “In addition, the course will serve as a national testing ground for player development by the PGA of America, in order to further grow the game both here in St. Lucie County and across the country.
St. Lucie Trail Golf Club will also feature a new logo, which pays homage to the local community by incorporating a warm and welcoming green colored trail. The golf course is noted for its small greens and quick putting surfaces. Water comes into play on 10 holes with more than 80 bunkers that add challenges to the relatively narrow fairways.
Amenities at St. Lucie Trail will include an exquisitely refurbished clubhouse complete with a fine dining restaurant, grill room, a full service golf shop, and men’s and ladies’ locker rooms, Tennis courts ,swimming pool and a spa round out the extras available.
In addition, U.S. Kids Golf provides a Family Course Setup with green tees at 2,200 yards and yellow tees at 3750 at SLTGC for families to enjoy a friendly round together while still playing as a group.
Rounds will range from $49 in the summer to $89 in the winter season. There is an annual golf-only “Preferred Player Program” that allows unlimited access for singles or couples. Memberships at the PGA Golf Club will now offer access to all four golf courses including The Wannamaker, The Ryder, The Dye and now the St. Lucie Trail Golf Club.
