The Apollo Beach Golf Club holds the unique distinction of being one of the first courses in Florida to use Paspalum grass, a special strain that thrives in saltwater areas. Refreshing breezes from the Gulf not only serve to cool you, but they also help to heighten the challenge of water on every hole on the course. Large, well-bunkered greens provide an enticing target for your approach shots along with a definite challenge when those shots are placed on the wrong part of the green. With four sets of tees ranging from 5047 to 7036 yards, players can decide just how much of the course they want to tackle. With a career spanning seven decades, Robert Trent Jones Sr. has been acclaimed as the most significant golf course architect in history. Apollo Beach Golf Club is proud to be associated with this legendary architect. At the Tampa golf course, Mr. Trent Jones’s artistic talents and design philosophy make the course a true pleasure to play for golfers of all abilities. He believed that a great course should offer a source of pleasure to the greatest number of players possible while at the same time testing their strategy, mind and skill. In all these criteria Apollo Beach delivers and brings the additional bonus of the natural beauty and wild life of Southern Florida to life on a course you will enjoy playing forever.
