About the Course
Osprey Point Golf Course was renovated in 2014 under the direction of the course architect, Tom Fazio. This undertaking converted all of the course greens, tees, and fairways to Paspalum, a salt-tolerant grass used at the Ocean Course. In addition, the bunkers were reconstructed to offer players a new challenge.
Now, the par 72 course features a variety of holes offering stimulating play and stunning surroundings. It has a near-perfect 4.5-star ranking in Golf Digest’s “Best Places to Play” reader poll and is No. 11 on the magazine’s list of America’s Top 50 Courses for Women.
