We did a pretty good job on quickly running through the neighborhoods of Key West earlier, but here we’re going to give our two cents on The Key West Golf Club. Key West is, and has so much more to offer than simply a tropical island of fisherman’s bars and t-shirt shops, while that might be most of the reason why people go there, having an island hide out which is a little more quiet and residential, is exactly what the Club offers.
The golf course area in general does actually make up it’s own neighborhood, if for no other reason that it takes up almost an entire side of Stock Island. The Club is a lovely little community filled with small townhouses of two to three bedrooms, built in 1994 by the same developer, Pritam Singh, who did Roosevelt Annex. Leafy and green, the homes are woven between a tropical canopy of trees and plants a crazy, colorful and relatively quiet.
Most of the homes (390 in total, give or take) are vacation properties, which means they are freely available to rent on a number of the vacation rental sites and by the real estate companies in Key West. Guard gated, two pools, priority access to tee times for you golf people. It’s a full 18 holes and has the famous Mangrove hole
The golf course itself, by no means a super challenge, is actually really fun to play, modest length holes, not too difficult. Most golf courses tend to be overly manicured and lets be honest, kind of look the same, Key West gold course has kept a lot of the tropical lushness that makes the Keys so unique.
Great little spot for a hideaway vacation. You do need a car when you go there, it is not walking distance to the island of Key West and there’s not a whole lot in general on Stock Island itself.
