They’re not making them like Hyde Park Golf Club anymore. The gorgeous Southern pines and Spanish oaks that line the course are even more mature and majestic than they were 80 years ago, and lend’s a special aura to the playing experience. Since the layout has not changed, visitors can play virtually the same course that was designed in 1925 by the legendary Scottish architect Donald Ross. Players will face the same shot-making decisions the legends of the game faced in the 1940’s and 50’s.
The course is setup with three sets of tees; Blue tees measuring 6,468 yards, White tees measuring 6,153 yards and Green/Red tees measuring 5,464 yards. The course layout winds through a gorgeous 129 acre lot with the iconic tee-to-green setup which is great for players that enjoy walking. Each hole is carved out of the woods and has mature trees lining every hole. While the vegetation and nature dominate the land, the iconic 540 foot red and white AM radio tower looks over the property with its 4 turnbuckles anchoring it in place.
The owners, Tommy and Melanie Bevill, are putting a lot of effort into restoring Hyde Park. The course is already showing a lot of improvement including a great practice facility with a full range and newly developed chipping and putting green with a great fairway bunker that allows players to practice their greenside bunker shots and their fairway bunker shots.
