Sailfish Sands expected to debut in August

Martin County, Fl ( – The county’s $8 million facelift of the Martin County Golf Course is making headway as its new reversible 9-hole course, driving range and newly-paved parking lot is set to open to the public this fall. 

A soft opening of the “state-of-the-art” facility, now named Sailfish Sands, on Southeast St. Lucie Boulevard is expected to debut in August, said Parks and Recreation Director Kevin Abbate. The reversible 9-hole course is the first of its kind in the state. 

“Every week, the course will either play clockwise or counterclockwise,” he said. “You get, essentially, different experiences playing each week.” 

A pro shop and a clubhouse with a dining room, full bar and two levels of hitting bays, similar to Topgolf, are under construction and expected to be finished within 10 months, Abbate said. The 20 hitting bays will sit six people each, while the clubhouse will seat more than 50 people. 

New technology has been embedded throughout the property. Golf carts with touch screens automatically show architectural renderings of each hole when driving by tee boxes, or the starting area of each hole. The touch screens also allow players to keep track of their scores. 

Additionally, players can use their phones at the driving range to track ball yardage, speed and location through the app Toptracer. Costs to rent a bucket of balls will range from $5 to $15, depending on size. 

The course also plans to host after-school programs such as First Tee of the Treasure Coast, a nonprofit organization that teaches children life skills through golf.

The County Commission approved in November spending $7 million for maintenance over five years and an additional $1.2 million for a new parking lot. Renovations also include landscaping, irrigation and utilities.
