PALM BEACH, The Breakers:
America’s legendary oceanfront resort destination will unveil their full-scale renovation of its historic Ocean Course, Florida’s oldest golf course, this December. The multi-million-dollar project is guided by renowned golf course architect Rees Jones with the mission of bringing back an older, classic style to the layout; enhancing the overall golf experience to an exciting new level. Originally laid out by Alexander H. Findlay in 1897, the Ocean Course will be made over with new green complexes and expanded with compelling undulations. New course amenities will include the expansion of the John Webster Golf Academy, housed in a building that will more than double in size and include two teaching bays as well as a new putting studio featuring the latest instructional technology. Once again, The Breakers showcases their ever-evolving philosophy of maintaining the delicate balance of honoring historic preservation yet incorporating modern amenities. www.thebreakers.com.
