History

The course was established in 1929, opened for play on Sunday, February 23, 1929, for a fifty-cent daily fee, or for two dollars per month, the whole family could play.  The original  course was designed by Stiles and Van Kleeck, golf architects of New York, NY and St. Petersburg, FL, and Captain Deane Duff, general manager of the Clewiston Company, under whose direction the then-new course was constructed.  The Clewiston Company was to become the United States Sugar Corporation.

A five-hole course had already been in use at the Clewiston Civic Center Park in downtown Clewiston while the construction was being completed.

The Clewiston News, dated Friday, February 21, 1930, stated that an important feature of the announcement of the opening of the new course was that the nominal green fees had been established to make it possible for everyone in the community to enjoy the course.
