"Golf Courses should reflect the natural beauty of the setting” – Tom Fazio
Welcome to Camp Creek. We know you'll enjoy your Troon Golf experience! Located between Highway 98 and Scenic Highway 30A, Camp Creek is enclosed in a natural haven of beauty that neighbors the beautiful emerald green waters and white sand beaches of Northwest Florida.
Designed by Tom Fazio, Camp Creek offers nearly 7,200 yards of undulated fairways and greens and driveable bunkers, with a view of the green from every tee box. Unlike the traditional flat terrain of Florida, Camp Creek is a fun challenge with few flat lies, and tiered greens that roll quick, but true!
Since our opening in 2001, we have been home to several first round US Open Qualifiers, and have received a number of awards, recognitions, and top rankings. This years honors include Golf Digest 2013 2nd Best Public Golf Course and 18th Best in State for public and private clubs.
When you first arrive at Camp Creek, you know that something is different and unique about this golf course. You see a tranquil mixture of native plantings interwoven with manicured turf, with no visible houses on the course. You will notice this throughout your golfing experience at Camp Creek. The native plant material gives the course a natural look and provides habitat to the diverse wildlife population we have here. A representation of the plant palette used on the course can be seen in the area around the practice range and practice putting green. Here we have Gulf Cordgrass, Marsh Hay Cordgrass, Saw Palmetto, Muhly Grass, Faxahatchee, and Live Oak. Look for the small plant identification signs located near these plants.
A great deal of thought and preparation went into the planting scheme to ensure the establishment of a diverse environment for wildlife. An important part of this is wildlife corridors. It is important for wildlife to be able to move from place to place in familiar surroundings. An example of a wildlife corridor can be seen in front of #2 tees. This area is a created wetland that connects the existing wetland on the left to the upland native habitat area to the right.
As a result of the natural plantings, we are blessed to have abundant wildlife on the property. A word of caution, however, is to be on the lookout for snakes, alligators, wasps, spiders, and mosquitoes!
Camp Creek is committed to enhancing our environment while providing a place for recreation and leisure. Because of our efforts to maintain and enhance the environment, Camp Creek has received certification in the Cooperative Sanctuary Program for golf courses through Audubon International. This program helps golf courses to enhance wildlife habitat and protect natural resources for the benefit of people, wildlife, and the game of golf.
Thank you for joining us at Camp Creek and we look forward to seeing you soon!
