Opened in 1971 for the Jackie Gleason Classic (renamed the Honda Classic) as a monstrous par-72, 7,553-yard track, Jack Nicklaus and the Tournament Committee said the course was too tough for the event. Fifty-two of the 137 bunkers were removed, but Mr. Nicklaus still shot a 78 and took a 7 on No. 3 (No. 12 today). When the clubhouse was built in 1981, the course was shortened into a par 70 (6,648 yards) and the nines were reversed. Colony West's Championship Course offers golfers one of the most challenging courses in South Florida. Strategic bunkering protects small, well-manicured greens, requiring players to think their way around the course to take advantage of scoring opportunities.
