Where2Golf says: 

Fairwinds Golf Course sits just above St Lucie Airport, but the last thing you'd suspect in this generally quiet and peaceful environment is an "International" airport on your doorstep - this wonderfully linksy Jim Fazio design, benefits from a modicum of earthmounding, breaking up the innate flatness of the original terrain - in keeping with the course's links-style persona, the feel is generally quite open, with a scattering of pines, palms, oaks and pampas grass separating the good-width, nicely rippling fairways - big-hitters will enjoy this open and generally forgiving layout, provided they straighten things up in time for the more water threatened back-nine - this second nine-hole loop brings plenty of water into play, courtesy of four small lakes, alongside which several holes are routed - two of the best are the shortish risk-reward snaking par-5 13th and the seriously water-flanked, right-to-left doglegging par-4 18th - around the often large and slightly elevated greens, your bunker play and pitching out of bermuda-grassed sloping lies will be tested - not all greens however are bunker defended, with just one greenside bunker in play at the par-4 10th, and none at the ensuing par-3 11th and par-4 12th holes - the posse of sand-traps at the 13th redresses the balance - with no housing around the course, a peacefully natural environment can be enjoyed here, broken only by the occasional arrival and departures of light aircraft.
