Surrounded by water on three sides and just an hour south of Miami, the Ocean Reef Club is a private club community situated at the northernmost tip of Key Largo in the Florida Keys. Ocean Reef comprises 2,500-pristine, tropical acres with three championship golf courses, a world-class 175-slip marina for boating, fishing, and diving, as well as impressive tennis and lawn sports facilities and a private airport.
Considered one of the country's most comprehensive communities, Ocean Reef Club offers golf real estate buyers approximately 1,700 waterfront estates, golf course homes, luxury condominiums, and golf villas, with boat slips for sale in the Ocean Reef Club Marina. Ocean Reef Club offers rich traditions that span generations and a membership that has always attracted entrepreneurs that value spending time with family. Members are attracted to the boating and fishing lifestyle, the year-round warm weather, and the full calendar of social events for family members of all ages.
A census was taken of Ocean Reef Club members in 2010, 2015, and 2020, and in all instances, members noted that the club was so unique that they didn't even consider anywhere else when buying a golf home or marina dock. That uniqueness comes from the 36-holes of golf, comprehensive tennis facilities, world-class fishing both offshore and on the flats, the private airport, and having their own village full of shops. Plus, the many community-based clubs and associations such as the Art League which presents shows by local and world-renowned artists in a variety of media as well as classes in watercolor, sculpture, woodworking, stained glass, fabric painting, and memoir writing.
For golfers, the Ocean Reef Club's championship layouts and impressive practice facilities challenge and inspire, whilst making the equity memberships available highly sort after. As golf clubs go, Ocean Reef'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 and Dolphin Courses offer distinctly different tests of golf and present scenic vistas and an enjoyable challenge for players of all levels.
The Card Sound Golf Club, also within the grounds of the Ocean Reef Community, is another fantastic option for those seeking their next test on the fairways. Separate from the two Ocean Reef Club golf courses, the Card Sound Golf Club, which was founded in 1974, is an equity club, featuring a Robert Von Hagge and Bruce Devlin designed 18-hole golf course. Redesigned by Brian Silva in 1999, the Card Sound layout is another fantastic option for those seeking to test themselves on the fairways
