As a West Palm Beach members-only private golf club, Banyan Cay Resort and Golf have reinvented the traditional idea of the golf club to become a favorite of those in the know. The family-friendly club and resort feature tennis courts, swimming pools, practice facilities, and an 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature Course with extensive elevation, allowing for gently moving fairways, sod-wall bunkers, and various water features inspired by the finest courses in the world.
Following the guidance of golf legend Jack Nicklaus, the Banyan Cay golf course is a golfer's dream with every fairway inspected by Jack himself. Originally designed by William F. Mitchell and opened in 1972 as the Eagle Course at President Country Club, Banyan Cay Resort and Golf's layout was renovated by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. in 2007 and then by Nicklaus Design in 2017. The fairways are lined with coquina and pampas grass and there are also water hazards and sand bunkers coming into play throughout the par 72 routings.
The course opens with a great risk-reward opportunity, a dogleg right par 5 with a strategically placed lake. The 7,248-yard layout then offers interesting par 3s that provide particularly nice scenery and a mix of par 4s and 5s that range from having ample room to being very tight and requiring careful course management.
Social events, fine dining, golf tournaments, and gatherings in the West Indies-inspired clubhouse highlight the element of fun, with a relaxed dress code and family-friendly events offered weekly. The only tradition at Banyan Cay is to relax and simply enjoy this next-generation, non-traditional golf club, and resort.
The Banyan Cay community includes single-family homes, custom estate homes, and luxury condos and villas. The resort near West Palm Beach airport includes just 22 luxury resort and golf villas, 94 single-family homes, and 51 custom-built homes within the community. Luxury vacation rentals are also available.
In addition to the 18-hole layout, practice facilities, and clubhouse, Banyan Cay features a luxurious spa facility and a signature restaurant plus the full-service Banyan Cay Resort and Golf Hotel. The villas surround the lush pool and Tiki Hut, making for a great tropical getaway. Villa occupants enjoy club membership benefits plus the option to be part of the exclusive Banyan Cay Vacation Rental Program.
For those looking for even more, the sun and sand of the Palm Beaches, plus all the excitement, boutique shopping, restaurants, cultural attractions, and nightlife of West Palm Beach is just minutes away!
