Island West

The Course

Architect: Fuzzy Zoeller and Clyde Johnston
Built: 1992

Crafted by the collaborative genius of Clyde Johnston and renowned PGA Tour player Fuzzy Zoeller, Island West Golf Club stands as a testament to their design prowess. Situated within the contours of natural marshland, the course follows the terrain, unveiling a picturesque tapestry of rolling fairways embraced by stately trees. With Zoeller’s distinct influence, Island West was built as a playground designed for fun and joyful play, an ambition it achieves easily.  The course spans 6,803 yards from the tips and presents some formidable challenges to the adept golfer while maintaining inviting accessibility for those still honing their skills. Water elements come into play on no less than 10 holes, offering daring golfers numerous opportunities to weigh risk against reward. Precision off the tee becomes imperative on the many tree-lined fairways, but players get a breather on holes with more generous landing zones.  Island West embodies the quintessential essence that one would envision with Fuzzy Zoeller’s creative involvement. However, the strategic expertise of Clyde Johnston also weaves through the fabric of this course, resulting in a harmonious blend of playfulness and technical sophistication.
