Original

Overview

Stillwater Golf Club is located between Jacksonville and St. Augustine, Fla. Inspired by native wetlands and cypress trees, Stillwater will be the region’s first new 18-hole golf course in two decades (2002).

Bobby Weed Golf Design’s routing is adaptive for the future. This progressive golf course will meander through neighborhoods, lagoons, marshland and pine forests as the centerpiece of a new master-planned community. Architectural highlights:

  • Just 70 acres of irrigated turf (148 total acres)
  • Can be played in loops of three, six, nine and twelve holes
  • Vertical sod wall EcoBunkers
  • Elegant lay-down walls
  • 18 acres of shell screenings for cart paths, visual contrast and reduced maintenance
  • 16-acre lighted driving range with Toptracer Range
  • Himalayan-style putting course

Challenge

Debuting for developer Lennar Homes, an innovative par-72 will stretch 6,730 yards for the 550-home active adult community. Built on a low-lying site, 1.5 million cubic yards of dirt are required for the golf course and residential development.

With construction commencing throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, crews have been taking extra precautions and working through numerous supply chain issues for two years.

Approach

Weed is a leader in building environmentally conscious golf courses. Stillwater will be no exception. Featuring just 70 acres of irrigated turf, Stillwater is destined to earn multiple environmental awards after opening. BWGD’s forward-thinking design will save thousands of gallons of water every year.

Bunker maintenance is an intense labor and financial commitment for clubs. To counter, BWGD will install EcoBunkers. Sods (grass and part of the soil beneath it) are built on top of each other to create a layered effect. These fortified bunkers:

  • Reduce wind-based erosion
  • Save time and money on maintenance
  • Yield a beautiful on-course aesthetic

 

Roughs and out-of-play areas will be lined with Centipede and Bahiagrass. These grasses are valued for outstanding heat tolerance.

Solution

Bobby Weed Golf Design is building a golf course for today’s active member. Stillwater’s flexible layout will offer multiple loops so members can play as their time permits. “Don’t expect a golf course from the past. We are providing Lennar Homes with something distinct and different,” says Bobby Weed. 

Featuring elegant lay-down walls, native grass roughs, small sod wall pot bunkers and an abundance of non-irrigated shell paths, Stillwater’s visual contrast will be stunning.
