Built in 1992 at Melbourne, Florida, this Gary Player designed golf vacation destination is a field playing for par-72 with a spread of enjoyable fairways and water features. The Baytree National made by the “Black Knight” of golf architecture is also surrounded with mounds on the side with an interesting pattern of moguls. Eighty-two white sand bunkers are sprinkled in the area with the red shale coquina wastes that is unique only to golf courses in Florida. The tumbling green shows various shapes and sizes which allow for strategic pin placements.
The Baytree National is composed of 7,200 yards with tees made to test the shot-making skills of any player may it be an amateur or a professional. Conquering the wetlands and lakes will make players ask for more. The layout has a competitive atmosphere that reflects the architect’s course management skills. The obvious manifestation of Player’s unique style explains why this golf vacation location is called a Gary Player Signature Course. Aside from the golf, Baytree also prides for its sightly clubhouse and deli-style restaurant that has one of the most efficient customer service.
Given the premiere layout clopped with a list of attractive recreational activities and partnered with complete amenities, it is no surprise why Baytree National has earned 4 stars in the Golf Digest rating. Zagat also threw high marks to this golf trip destination. Consistently, Baytree has also earned more awards like the title as Best of Brevard for the past two years. No wonder Washington Nationals has made Baytree its spring training home for many years.
