Hammock Beach Resort (Conservatory course)

4-PLUS: Must play course - excellent standard; worthy of 4½ stars.

Est. 2006

Hammock Beach Resort (Conservatory course): As one of two excellent and contrasting golf courses at the Hammock Beach Resort, the Conservatory course represents one of Tom Watson's best designs, and one of Florida's highly-rated championship layouts. You'll need to stay at the Resort if you want to play this course, which is generally reserved for members and resort-guests, with very limited possibilities for outside visitor play.

A nod to Watson's affinity for British links-style golf, the Conservatory layout is highlighted by 140 sand and coquina bunkers and three sod-faced bunkers, as well as waterfalls, babbling brooks and veneered stone work. The open parkland layout, linksy at times, contains an array of wonderfully crafted, memorable and challenging holes. Definitely a course to go out of your way to play.

Stay&Play at Hammock Beach: luxury accommodation available nearby (9 mi); see Where2Stay section below.

Did you know?

The Conservatory course has hosted both US PGA Tour and Champions Tour events (see our Tournaments section >by Venue >Hammock Beach).

Located approx 9 miles by road from the Ocean Course clubhouse, the clubhouse at the Conservatory Course evokes the design of a British style conservatory. Its high glass dome and luxurious appointments were perhaps inspired by two buildings in London, the Palm House at Kew Gardens and the original Crystal Palace, built for the Great Exhibition in 1851.

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Chevron Championship: the women’s major championship season gets underway for the second year at its new Carlton Woods home outside Houston, Texas. World No.2 Lilia Vu defends (April 18-21).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with four wins out of her last four appearances on the LPGA Tour, a feat last achieved by Lorena Ochoa in 2008. Korda's win at the T-Mobile Match Play brought up her 12th LPGA Tour victory.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda’s three-in-three, when he placed second at the Houston Open. This followed back-to-back wins at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players. Like Korda, he remains comfortably ahead in the official world golf rankings.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.

Prince's Golf Club, Kent (UK)

Here at Prince’s Golf Club you'll find 27 excellent holes of links golf. Just over the fence and sharing similar terrain is Royal St George’s; but Prince’s is far from overshadowed by its venerable neighbour. The three nine-hole loops at Prince's, laid out over gently undulating terrain, are sure to bring a smile of satisfaction to all lovers of links golf.

Stay&Play at Prince's: excellent onsite Lodge accommodation available
