Golf Shamble

12:30pm – 6:00pm /
Shotgun start at 1:00pm Ocean Reef Golf Club

As golf clubs go, Ocean Reef Club’s traditions go back more than half-a-century to 1955, when the first 9-hole course opened. Today the Club boasts two 18-hole courses, a rarity in the Florida Keys – even among standard golf clubs.

The Hammock Course is partially situated in a wildlife sanctuary of mangrove and tropical hardwood hammocks and contains many rare and endangered species of plants for players to observe and enjoy. This ocean golf course is considered the more scenic of the Club’s courses and is a true test of target golf. With fairways meandering through this natural hammock and with water hazards on 14 of the 18 holes, concentration becomes key to a good round. This par-71 course is 6,100 yards in length and offers a magnificent collection of memorable holes.

Pricing $435 per golfer and includes 18-hole greens fees, golf cart, box lunch on your cart, unlimited use of driving range, and all taxes and service fees.

Transportation The Ocean Reef Golf Club is located within the resort gates, and just a short golf cart ride from your guest room. If you have rented a road cart for the week, you may use this to get to the course. If not or your family will need your cart, the bell stand offers on-demand transportation via road cart 24 hours a day.

Rental Equipment Titleist rental clubs are available for $105 per player. Please register and prepay for your clubs during the conference registration process, if clubs are needed. If you register for club rental, your selection will be prepped and ready for you on your cart prior to the shotgun start.

Club Storage If you are bringing your own clubs to the meeting, you can check them with the hotel bellman upon your arrival or store in your guestroom. Unfortunately, the pro-shop does not have space to store clubs.

Dress Code No cargo shorts/pants or denim allowed. All men must have a collared shirt tucked into appropriate golf shorts or pants. Women’s skorts/skirts must be fingertip length. No athletic wear (yoga/fitness/workout) or swimwear allowed for anyone. Hats must be worn with the brim facing forward. Dress code applies to the course and all practice areas. Any member or guest not in the proper dress will be asked to change prior to using the facilities.

Prizes A $100 Visa gift card will be given to each foursome member of the winning team for the overall shamble.
A $50 visa gift card will be awarded to each person mastering the following contest holes:
(2) Longest drive holes
(2) Longest putt holes
(2) Closest to the pin holes

No problem; the resort’s experienced crew will show you the ropes.

Look out for turtles and dolphins on your half hour ride out to the reef. During this time, knowledgeable crew will fit everyone for snorkel gear, show you how to properly snorkel if you are new and brief you on the local wildlife that inhabits the reefs.

You will get to visit two different coral reef locations. Plan to spend around an hour at each site with a 10-minute break in between as we travel between reefs.
