When it comes to private golf club living, some of the most important aspects to any Member is the ability to connect to the people and the environment that surrounds them. Located along Florida’s Treasure Coast, Willoughby Golf Club has become the quintessential golf destination, priding itself on first-class amenities, exceptional service, and an active Membership. But it’s not just year-round Florida sunshine and stunning golf facilities that attract people to Willoughby. Named by Links Magazine as “One of the Best Places to Live in Florida,” here’s a closer look at what makes this Club’s lifestyle irreplaceable.

18 Holes of Scenic Championship Golf

Nationally renowned for its pristine golf facilities and professional staff, it’s no secret that Willoughby Golf Club attracts avid golfers from across the country. Meeting up on the par-72 golf course is second nature for many resident Members. Designed by renowned architect Arthur Hills, the course honors the gorgeous surrounding landscape, with holes framed between towering trees and natural wetlands to create one of the most picturesque layouts in the area. Four sets of tees playing between 5,014 and 6,701 yards ensure players of all skill levels are suitably challenged.

Along with the championship course, a full team of PGA-certified golf teaching professionals led by PGA Professional Gerry Knebels teaches lessons and hosts clinics for every age and skill level. The Golf Club also hosts a myriad of tournaments and social events both on and off the course. From the Willoughby Cup and Husband-and-Wife Championship to golf cart parades, there is never a shortage of golf events for residents to enjoy.

Club Amenities Focused on Food, Fitness, and Fun

Along with the golf course, numerous on-site amenities allow life at Willoughby to feel like an endless summer vacation. Five Har-Tru tennis courts and two pickleball courts are all lighted, allowing for year-round tennis clinics, exhibitions, and lessons to happen both day and night. The expansive Clubhouse is the social hub of the community. Members cherish soaking in the Florida sunshine at the resort-style pool, enjoying gourmet dining at three distinct venues, or focusing on health and wellness at the state-of-the-art fitness center. When school’s out of session and children and grandchildren come to visit, Willoughby ensures they feel at home as well, with their own busy schedule of events and activities, including golf and tennis clinics, and multiple holiday celebrations.

A Full Social Schedule Creates a Welcoming Community

With a robust calendar of social events, Members have formed an active and close-knit community that is truly one of a kind. From gourmet lobster dinners and jazz nights to themed dances, a plethora of events make people feel at home as soon as they arrive. The Clubhouse is also home to numerous “clubs within the Club” that foster social and intellectual connections between Members. Mahjong, Bridge, and trivia tournaments constantly fill the Clubhouse with laughter and friendly competition. Members also enjoy the book and garden clubs, bowling leagues, and more. For those looking to learn something new, cooking classes, dance lessons, and more help take any Member’s skills to the next level. Four-legged Members aren’t left out of the fun, either, with a Yappy Hour at the dog park every evening.

A Cherished Stuart, Florida Lifestyle

Located on Florida’s Treasure Coast, Willoughby Golf Club remains the favorite of those seeking a Florida lifestyle that is active, social, and purposeful in the pursuit of celebrating the good life. Its ideal location is just a short drive away from Downtown Stuart and 38 miles north of Palm Beach, both with active shopping districts, fine dining, and cultural exhibitions.
