The famous dairy family who started farming in Florida in the late 1920s with a handful of Jersey cows own McArthur Golf Club. My, how times have changed. The McArthur’s have diversified and created a private “sanctuary for pure golf”, so you’ll need to befriend one of the lucky members to tee it up here at Hobe Sound.
The McArthur’s teamed Tom Fazio with Nick Price to fashion a course that has “wow factor” and is picturesque. Spread over nearly 1,000 acres of sugar sand property (sugar sand is a common Floridian name for sandy loam) the course has been thoughtfully designed with multiple tees for the low and high handicapper.
Fazio and Price certainly felt the earth move as they shifted more than a million cubic yards of sugar sand to create a course that “rests lightly on the land”. Lakes were created and the course was shaped to wind through four Floridian ecosystems; prairie wetlands, sand pine scrub, barrier dune line and hardwood hammock.
With no homes or development around the property, McArthur really is a blissful sanctuary to seclusion.
