About Coral Ridge Country Club
Rich in history and traditions, Coral Ridge Country Club and golf course were developed and designed in 1954 by the legendary golf course architect Robert Trent Jones, Sr. His son, American golf icon Rees Jones, returned in 2020 to restore the championship 18-hole course, polishing the gem his father built. The restored course consists of celebration fairway and rough, Tiffgrand tees, collars and Champion Greens. Additional golf facilities include a Rees Jones designed 9-hole, Par 3 course and practice facilities. We are a private, non-equity country club located in the heart of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, just minutes from the beach. The first class service you will experience while at Coral Ridge Country Club can be summed up in our Welcome H.O.M.E. motto in which Hospitable People and Outstanding Service lead to Memorable Experiences that Exceed Expectations.
