Florida Panhandle course completes $1.2 million project

Enhancements at Tiger Point Golf Club include irrigation and bunker upgrades.

Tiger Point Golf Club, an 18-hole semi-private club in Gulf Breeze, Fla., recently completed a course enhancement project. The project, which began in November 2019, focused on the club’s irrigation system, bunkers, general course maintenance and a new practice area. 
As part of the $1.2 million enhancement project, Tiger Point added a new irrigation pump station, all new lateral irrigation lines and new sprinkler heads. The club’s agronomy team also renovated bunkers, leveled tee boxes and cut back trees and brush around the entire golf course. The pruning project opened more views of beautiful Santa Rosa Sound to golfers. 
In addition, Tiger Point also renovated and expanded its practice facilities. The new, all-grass practice range features an elevated tee area with four target greens. A new practice green and practice bunkers were also added for putting, chipping and bunker-shot practice.
“We’re thrilled with how the enhancements have improved the overall golf experience,” said Trey Childs, PGA, general manager, Tiger Point Golf Club. “The new irrigation system is not only more efficient, but we’ve also improved the turf quality and playing surface for golfers. What’s more, the views of Santa Rosa Sound are even more spectacular thanks to our agronomy team thinning trees and bushes around the course.” 
Tiger Point Golf Club was originally designed by PGA Tour veteran and former U.S. Open winner Jerry Pate in the mid-1980s, and was later renovated by Pate in 2001.  
Tiger Point Golf Club is set along the shores of the Santa Rosa Sound, a body of water connecting the Pensacola Bay and Choctawhatchee Bay along the Florida Panhandle.
