The Treasure Coast will welcome a new golf and country club community, Glynlea Country Club at Wylder, featuring an 18-hole signature golf course designed by 17-time PGA Tour champion Jim Furyk

The golf course is Furyk’s inaugural signature course. Discussing the opportunity, he said:

“Having consulted on courses in the past, it’s an honour to make Glynlea my first signature course. People may see a tour player as the designer and immediately think it's going to be hard, but we're designing a golf course that's fun and very playable at all skill levels.” 
“I've played all over the world and have seen a variety of golf course styles. I’ve played a lot of golf with my mom and dad and in ProAms on the PGA tour, so I also understand how the amateur plays and gets around a golf course. Beginners, average players, and pros alike will enjoy the great challenges of this course.”

Furyk elaborated on the design collaboration.

“When we started designing the golf course and putting it on paper, GreenPointe’s goal was to create a place where all levels of golfers could compete, play, and enjoy the game of golf. This is what golfers can expect when they come to Glynlea.” 

Austin Burr, GreenPointe Developers regional president, noted, “The demand for property on the Treasure Coast is unprecedented, and we are building a community that will attract retirees, families, and young professionals. There is a real appreciation for the amenities and the value we’re creating, in addition to its close proximity to medical facilities, recreation, and nearby metropolitan areas.”   

Glynlea Country Club at Wylder will be a gated community with a robust amenities program. The community will offer club memberships, which include swim, fitness, and golf training amenities in addition to the 18-hole golf course. A wide range of new home designs will be offered by area builders. Features will include:

  • Golf course designed by Jim Furyk, a 17-time PGA Tour champion
  • New single-family and maintenance-free homes
  • Secluded homesites that showcases golf, lake, and preserve views
  • Modern club campus with fitness center, resort-style pool, and golf pro shop
  • Lakeside recreation areas, pocket parks, and miles of nature trails
  • Nearby access to quality healthcare, top-ranked schools, and endless arts and entertainment venues
