Rich in history and tradition, Coral Ridge Country Club was developed and designed by the legendary golf course architect Robert Trent Jones, Sr. and his wife Ione D. Jones.
The championship 18-hole golf course is a timeless masterpiece designed in 1954 and is described today as beautiful, challenging and meticulously maintained. Mr. Jones always touted the course as an "easy bogey, but a hard par" due to the undulating greens that are precisely bunkered; however, the traditional runway style tee boxes offer an array of course lengths and difficulties so players of all ages and skill levels enjoy the course.
In the fall of 2015 the Club opened a 9-hole, par-3 course designed by famed golf course architect Rees Jones. This course offers a variety of yardage, with holes ranging from 70 yards to over 200 yards, as well as undulated and multi-tier greens.
In addition to the golf facilities, this private, Members-only Club boasts 11 tennis courts, a 25-meter heated swimming pool, outdoor patio terrace and a 22,000 square foot clubhouse.
