Where2Golf says: 

Located in a pristine area of tranquil Florida woodland, with no residential housing either in view or planned, Old Corkscrew is one of the most natural courses in southern Florida. On this Jack Nicklaus Signature design, the layout, crafting of the holes and balance between playability and challenge are of the highest quality. At times exhibiting a more open feel, at others more tree-lined, the course majestically sweeps through a forest of pines and native oaks, often accompanied by the gentle rustle of wind in the tree tops. Nine small lakes and ponds ensure that water plays its full part in proceedings, attractively flanking several fairways and wrapped closely alongside eight of the greens. Nicklaus's trademark bunkering, whether large and expansive or small and links like, is an integral part of this very stylish layout, with small islands of pampas grass often highlighting the location of the traps. Among many outstanding holes, the 2nd introduces a superb collection of par-3s; on this occasion excellent mounding, bunkering and a large, undulating putting surface are the key features. As in days of old, the distance between greens and subsequent tees are kept to a minimum, although "compact" is certainly not a term you'd apply to this wide-roaming layout. Although never too undulating, the par-4 14th green gets you up a little higher for a view over a large citrus grove. At Old Corkscrew golfers of all abilities will enjoy the naturalness of the surroundings and quality of Nicklaus's fair but ever-challenging design.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
