Honours Golf Selected To Manage Lost Key Golf Club
“Lost Key is a beautiful golf facility and is a great addition to our portfolio of clubs along the Gulf Coast,” said Bob Barrett, chief executive officer of Honours Golf. “With four other courses in the area, we are already familiar with the market and we are eager to contribute to the club’s overall success.”
Lost Key is situated along the western part of the Florida Panhandle on Perdido Key, a barrier island in the Gulf of Mexico, located between Pensacola, Fla. and Gulf Shores, Ala. It features a visually stunning, 18-hole championship golf course carved thru 150 acres of natural vegetation, wetlands, and dense wooded terrain. Aspiring to preserve and protect the natural habitat, Lost Key became the first golf course in the world certified as an Audubon International Silver Signature Sanctuary. This environmentally sensitive golf course was originally built in 1997 and later redesigned by Arnold Palmer in 2006. As with many Palmer designs, the course presents numerous reward/risk opportunities and provides a strategic golfing experience. Narrow manicured fairways, an array of water hazards, multiple forced carries and contoured greens are just a few features of this picturesque semi-private golf course.
Complementing the golf course, is a contemporary coastal inspired clubhouse which provides a full-service golf shop, men’s and women’s locker rooms, an impressive banquet facility and a casual upscale restaurant with panoramic views and indoor and outdoor seating.
In addition to golf, Honours will also be overseeing Lost Key’s state-of-the-art marina. The marina provides direct access to the Gulf of Mexico and the Gulf Islands National Seashore and offers 47 wet-slip and over 140 dry-slips accommodating boats up to 60 feet in size. It also includes a wave-attenuation system which provides stability for vessels by minimizing wave action in the marina base.
Other amenities at this WCI community include two hard surface tennis courts, fitness center, outdoor swimming pool, on-site spa and waterfront veranda. Homes at Lost Key include two-, three- and four-bedroom luxury condominiums and single-family homes bordering the golf course or the Gulf of Mexico.
Lost Key Golf Club is open to the public and offers a variety of memberships. For more information, visit www.lostkey.com.
