Old Corkscrew Golf Club goes to special lengths to advertise its status as an Audubon International Signature Sanctuary, which applies to everything from its strict limits on chemical use to its use of cart paths made from organic materials. Perhaps the most noticeable benefit is one that both golfers and more native animals share equal appreciation for: no housing on the course, a relatively rare occurrence in the southwest corner of the state.

That’s not to say Jack Nicklaus didn’t have plenty of room to work with while weaving through the forest at this public-access facility. In fact, he had more than 7,400 yards to work with. There is certainly no pressure to use all of them; there are plenty of hazards around to keep you cautious. Trees line many of the fairways and, in the spirit of the club’s natural allegiance, many of the open areas are filled with wetlands and other bodies of water.

There are several examples of Cape-style holes, but No. 4 takes it to a new level: A cross bunker juts in from the water, daring the driver to attempt both carrying the bunker and tip-toeing next to the water for the best line into the green.

Jack Nicklaus

Jack Nicklaus will forever be associated with greatness on the golf course, but it’s his design work that should also be remembered in equal measure to his magnificent competitive achievements on the links.
