Ocean Reef Club
As golf country clubs go, the Ocean Reef Club’s traditions go back more than half-a-century to 1955, when the first 9-hole course opened. Today the Club boasts two championship 18-hole courses, a rarity in the Florida Keys – even among standard golf country clubs. Although the Hammock Course and the Dolphin Course offer distinctly different tests of golf, both feature scenic vistas and an enjoyable challenge for players of all levels.Meet your coaching staff
