Bobcat Trail Golf Club - One of Florida's Top Public Golf Courses

Bobcat Trail Golf ClubOne of Florida’s top public golf courses earns its high ratings through a commitment to excellence.

“It’s apparent from the time you I pull through the gates, gliding down the wide boulevard that bisects plush carpets of green and leads to Bobcat Trail’s Florida style clubhouse that you are in for an extraordinary day of golf - a true escape from reality into a golfer’s dream. Although the clubhouse may have a distinct coastal Florida architectural flair, the course that revolves around it is anything but typical Florida.

How good is Bobcat Trail? Good enough to merit numerous awards, host major local tournament events and earn a 4-1/2 star rating from Golf Digest. With wide, rolling, meticulously maintained fairways, the course boasts plenty of water and sand to rate a reputation as a shot-maker’s course with ample opportunities for risk and reward. The introduction of the latest hybrid grass Champion Ultra Dwarf, on all 18 greens supports fast and true rolling conditions on putting surfaces that present distinct challenges with multiple tiers and slopes. Recent renovation of numerous sand bunkers scattered strategically throughout the course enhance the playability and serve as reminders not to stray from the lush fairways.

Designed by eight-time PGA TOUR winner Bob Tway, “The Cat’s” design flows seamlessly through 18 holes with an abundance of movement controlled through mounding and elevation changes. Tway took advantage of native vegetation, sculpting fairways lined with gracious oaks, towering pines and incorporated numerous plantings of tropical foliage into the configuration.

The new lounge area is a great place to meet and mingle or just relax after a great round.With the experience of operating two upscale golf clubs in Indiana, owner Roger Delagrange’s goal has been to bring the golf club’s service to another level.  It’s the attitude you’ll encounter from every employee you meet—from the time you pull up to the bag drop to when the bartender pours your drink at the 19th hole. Delagrange attributes the service oriented relationship with customers as one of the reasons the club has gathered accolades as one of the top Florida golf clubs.
