Scenic Hills Country Club at the University of West Florida - Jerry Pate Design
A Jerry Pate Designed Course
Only course in the State of Florida to host a U.S. Open.
With four sets of tees to choose from players of all abilities will have the option to find a tee to best suit their game. The Par 71 layout measures 6,730 yards from the Gold Tees; 6,317 yards from the Blues; 6,021 from the White markers and 5,150 from the forward Red tees. The course and slope ratings start at 70.0/124 and work their way up to 73.4/130.
The combination of outstanding playing conditions and course layout make Scenic Hills one of the finest golf courses available to the public in Pensacola.
Scenic Hills Country Club at the University of West Florida is in sharp contrast to other golf courses in Florida. Dramatic elevation changes are prevalent as well as mature tree lined fairways. While water plays a factor on six holes the forced carry over these hazards is minimal insuring a fun and enjoyable round of golf.
The sharply framed holes play to generous putting surfaces making for a wide variety of hole placements. Playing to the middle of the greens is sound advice as wayward shots will most likely end in trouble as all greens are surrounded by strategically placed bunkers.
One of the most challenging holes is the par 4 1st hole. Playing 416 yards from the White tees this downhill hole is a stern test right out of the gate. Most players will be hitting anything from a 4 or 5 iron into this green, while the longer players may hit an 8 or 9 iron. The green has two bunkers on the right hand side to catch errant shots. Don’t hit over this green either as a steep faced bunker that is not visible from the fairway looms for shot that goes over the green.
