Hollywood Beach Golf Resort Featured as Florida Historic Golf Trail Course of the Month

TALLAHASSEE– Secretary of State Ken Detzner announced today that the Hollywood Beach Golf Resort, located in the City of Hollywood in Broward County, has been chosen as the featured course on the Florida Historic Golf Trail for the month of February.

“We are pleased to feature the Hollywood Beach Golf Resort as a partner on the Florida Historic Golf Trail,” said Secretary Detzner. “This golf course has been an integral part of this city’s scenic beauty, and a local landmark for over 90 years.”

Wally Nelson and noted golf course builder Charles Olsen were among the many individuals responsible for the early design of the Hollywood Beach golf course. Olsen took charge of the construction of the golf course, located on former agriculture fields, introduced some new features and added around 30 acres to the original tract. The first nine holes were completed and in play by the 1922, winter season. In the fall of 1922, Wally‘s older brother Lee Nelson, the professional in charge of the course, was spending most of his time on the course directing some of the finishing work and incorporating some late ideas into the final design. In early 1924, Lee and his younger brother Chic Nelson, who served as the assistant golf professional, organized the formal opening of the 18-hole golf course and the hotel.

Today, the 18-hole, par-70, golf course features four sets of tees playing from 4,900 to 6,300 yards. The picturesque course provides players with an experience reminiscent of old Florida that allows players to focus on their golf game and leave day-to-day distractions behind.

“The Hollywood Beach Golf Resort is honored to be selected as the Florida Historic Golf Trail’s featured course for February 2017,” said Josh McCumber, Director of Golf at Hollywood Beach Golf Resort. “The golf course at Hollywood Beach Golf combines the best of old and new, where Old Florida meets the 21st century.”
