Course Description

Tourists can head over knowing that it will be a contemporary, newly built course. It first opened in 2010. The layout, difficulty of the holes, and feared sand traps were created by Tom Fazio, the architect of the course. It has a course rating of 76.9, and its 18 holes measure a total of 7650 yards.

The Corales Club and residential community is located on 700 acres of oceanfront property with six Oceanside holes and 2.5 miles of shoreline.
