Turtle Creek Club is an upscale private golf club located in one of the premier golf destinations in South Florida, the Tequesta / Jupiter area. The golf course was originally designed by Gentleman Joe Lee in 1969. He always considered Turtle Creek Club to be one of his finest accomplishments. With good reason, it is appealing to the average golfer and still challenging to the highly skilled player. The golf course was redone in 2016 led by local architect Kipp Schulties. Mr. Schulties, along with the membership, helped modernize this Joe Lee masterpiece. The course is characterized by its open fairways and challenging greens. Also, during this renovation, Celebration Bermuda was used for the tees, rough, and fairways. The greens were rebuilt using Tif Eagle Bermuda. The club is now enjoyed by multiple PGA professionals and a full membership.
