Loblolly

Hobe Sound, FL, United States Private

Overview

Situated on a tight, triangularly shaped property about a mile from the Atlantic Ocean in Hobe Sound, Fla., Loblolly is a challenging Pete and P.B. Dye design. Angles are key at Loblolly, as many of the narrow and tilted greens are best attacked from one side of the hole. The par-3 16th is one of the more dramatic holes on property, as any shot coming up short and right will filter down into a bunker 20 feet below the putting surface. Golf course builder Jim Urbina has recently overseen a comprehenive renovation to preserve the Dye character.
