Location of Tequesta Country Club
Tequesta Country Club is a private, member-owned golf club located in the Village of Tequesta, Florida. The Club and golf course are situated on a peninsula which is surrounded, on three sides, by the north fork and the northwest fork of the beautiful and historic Loxahatchee River. Tequesta Country Club was founded in 1957 by Charles Martyn, a land developer, who also initially developed much of the area which is now the Village of Tequesta.
The golf course was designed by the late Dick Wilson, who also designed many well known and highly regarded golf courses in the State of Florida and throughout the United States. Planning and construction of the golf course and clubhouse began in 1955 and the golf course was officially opened on December 12, 1957 by Jack Kurtz, the first president of the Club.
Tequesta Country Club Now
Tequesta Country Club has recently completed a major golf course restoration and renovation project conducted by Tom Fazio, II, a well known and respected national golf course designer with many well known and respected golf courses throughout the United States and abroad, and who also happens to be a member of the Club. As part of this project, “Tommy” has created a wonderful “short game” practice facility and has restored the course, and has redesigned several holes and greens on the golf course, while simultaneously honoring and respecting the original Dick Wilson “old Florida” design. Perhaps most importantly, recognizing that the golf course is located on a 10 to 12 foot ridge of natural white sand, Tommy has restored the original natural areas on the golf course with the same natural white sand on which the course was originally built, and has planted native Florida vegetation in these areas, thereby continuing to give the golf course the traditional “old Florida” feel while simultaneously adhering to modern water conservation and preservation practices. The valued tradition of the 1950’s style golf course has been maintained, but has also been gently but effectively brought into the 21st century by Mr. Fazio.
