Clewiston Golf Course

History

The Clewiston Golf Course is located in the City of Clewiston in Hendry County. In 1928, the City of Clewiston commissioned the golf course architectural firm of Wayne Stiles and John Van Kleek to design an 18-hole golf course.  Construction of the first nine holes began in 1929 and formally opened in February of 1930.  The location of the second nine holes at the time was still being used as the City’s aviation field. Captain F. Deane Duff was in charge of the construction of the golf course.  Built on previously flat land, the original design included water hazards, rolling greens and one tee box more than 20 feet high.  The golf course remained a 9-hole course until the 1960s when the City decided to add an additional 9-holes.
