St. Francis Links Golf Course

St Francis Links land may not have been grazing land for the sheep and rabbits, but a natural course between the beach and arable land it is. Jack Nicklaus has had the pleasure of taking Mother Nature's best piece of links land and signed his name to something unique. St Francis Links will challenge all who play it and reward those who respect it. The layout combines every element of shot making with its undulating terrain, greens and surrounds as well as its variation in length and direction. The bunkers look as though they have been simply plowed out of the land. It is the bunkering that truly defines the quality and character of St Francis Links. Others have designed and built courses with a links look. Here you will easily see what separates St Francis Links from the rest a consistent look throughout. One will agree that, almost from the opening shot, St Francis Links carries a look and feel that breathes history from times gone by.

Signature hole

On a survey conducted after the course opened, every hole received votes. For that reason, you must be the judge! The par-5's are all "strong" with lay-ups recommended in most conditions. There are no holes alike, all with their own character and memories. We offer 4 tees for men and 2 for ladies.
