Cimarróne

Cimarrone Golf Club - Jacksonville, FLCimarrone Golf Club is again living up to its Seminole definition as “The Wild One”. Located just ten minutes north of the World Golf Village off I-95, David Poselthwait’s great shot-makers layout through the pine forests and thick marshlands of nort Florida offers an unforgettable challenge to golfers who think they’re playing their best games.

Five sets of tees between 4,700 and 6,900 yards set the stage for an intriguing journey through unforgiving wetlands Golf Digest’s Places to Play has given a 4-star rating. The challenge is to navigate a course that has water on 16 of the 18 holes, and forced carries over marshes on the other two. But before that little truism scares you off, a little secret the members learn early on is that the landing areas are wider than they look from the tees. Poselthwait may have saved his best for last.

The 439-yard-from-the-tips 18th has water that runs left off the tee, turning across the landing area, flowing into a lagoon along the right side of the fairway. Once you’ve played over and around the water, and the moguls that frame the opposite side, there’s still an enormous bunker guarding a long, narrow green. After you play it, you’ll likely agree with the critics that put #18 in most every list of the Jacksonville-areas top 18 holes.

The friendly, knowledgeable staff at Cimarrone, from the course hosts to the event planners and catering staff will exceed the expectations of your group of 4 to 144. Besides a restaurant and full kitchen facilities in a 10,000-square-foot clubhouse, the practice area has separate putting and chipping greens and 30-person tee. Call (904) 287-2000 or visit www.cimarronegolf.com to see why Cimarrone, “The Wild One”, is a favorite of Jacksonville residents and tourists alike.
