It stands to reason that a golf course designed by a passionate golfer and nature lover would include great otters, Snowy Egrets, and Roseate Spoonbills, as well as an assortment of musical songbirds among its regular patrons.

An Unforgettable Golf Experience
At the Renaissance Vinoy Golf Club, the wildlife menagerie joins golfers of all skills and ages on course architect Ron Garl’s beautifully manicured, immensely stimulating course - one that binds nature, tradition and challenging rounds into one unforgettable golf experience.
The Renaissance Vinoy Golf Club offers ideal year-round playing conditions. Summers soothed by cooling Gulf breezes. And winters warmed by Florida’s hospitable climate.
The 18-hole par 71 layout is not your typical Florida golf course. As a certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary we are not only a refuge for wild life, each hole is surrounded by diverse vegetation including over a dozen varieties of palm from around the world. From the Bismarck palms (Bismarckia nobilis) found in Madagascar to the Giant Fishtail palm (Caryota no) from Indonesia. These palms total over 900 and along with the pines and Live Oaks, you will find yourself lost in the jungle, or beached on one of the 63 bunkers strategically place along the way.
The golf course sits in a residential area 1.7 miles away from The Vinoy Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort & Golf Club on beautiful Snell Island. Complimentary shuttle service to and from the Club for its guests is provided by the resort. An ornate, Mediterranean-inspired clubhouse overlooking the golf course houses a restaurant, bar and fully stocked pro shop.
