Noble House Hotels & Resorts has announced that it will take over the management of Banyan Cay Resort & Golf in West Palm Beach, FL. The popular golf resort is the latest addition to Noble House’s recent expansion of its roster of premier properties throughout the United States.
A groundbreaking ceremony took place on Tuesday with golf icon Jack Nicklaus in attendance, as he will redesign the 250-acre resort’s course. Tying Banyan Cay with Jack Nicklaus, the resort hopes to excite both previous guests and new visitors.
Dissimilar to most southern Florida courses, the Nicklaus Signature Course at Banyan Cay will showcase subtle changes of elevation (as much as 25 feet in changes; double that of most courses in the area). The course will also have land forms, various water features, and bunkers that provide both aesthetics and strategy.
The new par-72 design currently has five sets of tees to accommodate players of all skill levels, and the course yardage is expected to range from 4,800 yards to a championship-length 7,200 yards. The practice facility and opening hole will be located in front of the new full-service Banyan Cay clubhouse, complete with member facilities, grille, golf shop, and social areas for member activities.
Noble House Hotels & Resorts additionally owns and manages La Playa Beach & Golf Resort, Little Palm Island Resort & Spa, Ocean Key Resort & Spa, and Pelican Grand Beach Resort – all located in South Florida. On top of the new Jack Nicklaus Signature Course, state-of-the-art practice facility, and new clubhouse, Noble House’s plans for Banyan Cay will include the addition of a 150-room luxury hotel, residences, membership levels, and a great lawn.
