Key West Golf Club re-opens after hurricane damage
The Key West Golf Club finally re-opened its front nine, a year after Hurricane Wilma came roaring through, producing an eight-foot storm surge that flooded the island and the course. The course had four feet of water on it and filled the irrigation ponds with salt water.
The course has since changed to saltwater-tolerant paspallum, a grass that many ocean-side courses are going to.
The club, not surprisingly, is the southernmost golf course in the U.S., and opened in the 1920s as a nine-hold course. Rees Jones re-designed the course in 1983, the first he did with his own company.
