Hammock Bay Golf & Country Club - Naples Florida
With an emphasis on the boundless beauty of the area?s natural environment, the golf course at Hammock Bay Golf & Country Club is designed to provide an enjoyable challenge to all golfers, regardless of their level of play.
The course, designed by Peter Jacobsen & Jim Hardy, is a par 72 Championship golf course with 18 individual and distinct holes.
The contours, shape and orientation of the course greens were designed with the approach shot in mind. The green surroundings are also fashioned to present the golfer with a variety of shot options. Multiple tees are provided at each hole, allowing increased playability for juniors, seniors, and beginners, while offering a challenge to low handicappers and professionals. Bunkers are strategically positioned to challenge the risk taker and, in some cases, direct the placement shots-all intended to add to the course?s visual appeal and uniqueness.
Hammock Bay is utilizing Sea Dwarf Paspalum, a variety of turf new to the industry. This turf allows up to 50% less irrigation than other turf grasses in the area. Another unique feature of Paspalum is the ability to water with salty or undesirable water sources. This allows us to utilize the Mid-Hawthorn Aquifer for irrigation of golf course. Hammock Bay took advantage of the opportunity to use this less desirable water source, placing less demand on an already dwindling source of safe, potable drinking water. The amount of effluent or reclaimed water needed for irrigation was also reduced.
The golf course at Hammock Bay opened for play in 2004 and is located in Naples nestled among the surrounding beauty of McIlvane Bay and the Ten Thousand Islands.
