Course Overview

It is said that no hole at Mayacoo Lakes will penalize a good shot nor force a layup. This is the result of the thinking of Jack Nicklaus who with Desmond Muirhead designed this course. When it was first opened in 1973, Mayacoo Lakes was considered too difficult, but with Nicklaus periodically making alterations it has become a forceful test of golf for players of all handicaps.

Built on level land 6,950 yards from the back tees, the course packs much of its punch into the 13 holes that feature water hazards. Native vegetation, palmetto bushes, and cabbage palms line most fairways. Because of the water and trees, shot placement is always important here. Mayacoo lakes has hosted the PGA Club Professional Series, the Eastern Seniors and several state and local events. The best scores are seldom below 71.

Water comes into play on 13 holes at Mayacoo Lakes and fills more than half of the fairway on the par-4, 395-yard 12th. The East Coast course in Florida was considered too difficult when it was first opened in 1973. But it has been softened to some degree over the years.
