Arnold Palmer Golf Course in Vero Beach

Best Golf Course in Vero Beach

“Golf is deceptively simple and endlessly complicated. It satisfies the soul and frustrates the intellect. It is at the same time rewarding and maddening. And it is without a doubt the greatest game mankind has ever invented.” 1

Arnold Palmer, the man who made golf cool, was driven by the simple principle that a course should be fun to play. As the beloved centerpiece of this village community, the Arnold Palmer—designed golf course tests players at all skill levels. On the logistical side, this feat is managed with nine tee combinations creating flexible overall distances ranging from 4,321 to 7,126 yards. Think sculpted bunkers and water-guarded greens. “The lush layout’s signature 160-yard 8th plays over water and into a sea breeze to a sloping green, guarded by capstone, while the 551-yard 18th is very similar to the 18th at Bay Hill, winding around water on the right to a capstone-fronted peninsular green.” 2

The Orchid Island Golf & Beach Club golf course is a testament to Arnold Palmer’s passion for the “greatest game” and its never-ending invitation. It has been called the best golf course in Vero Beach. Play golf. Love life.
