PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Unveiling a unique and special focus on the local community, PGA Country Club will transform into the open-to-the-public "St. Lucie Trail Golf Club" beginning Nov. 1. 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 maintenance standards as nearby PGA Golf Club.
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. Accordingly, golfers now have the ability to play a picturesque, 18-hole course for the best value in the local marketplace.
"The PGA of America is extremely proud to unveil St. Lucie Trail Golf Club, as golfers from the local community and surrounding counties can now enjoy unparalleled public access to this beautiful course," said Jimmy Terry, PGA general manager for St. Lucie Trail Golf Club. "In addition, the course will serve as a national testing ground for player development programs originated 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 also features a new logo, which pays homage to the local community by incorporating a warm and welcoming green colored trail.
Rounds will range from $49 in the summer to $89 during the winter season. In addition, an annual, golf-only "Preferred Player Program" that offers unlimited access for $1,995 for a single player, and $2,995 for two players, is available at the clubhouse.
Memberships to PGA Golf Club will continue to offer access to four courses -- the Wanamaker, Ryder and Dye Courses at PGA Golf Club, in addition to the new St. Lucie Trail Golf Club, which is located at 951 SW Country Club Dr., in Port St. Lucie. PGA Golf Club will also remain open for both public and resort play.
