Loxahatchee Club

Latitude 36® Adds to the Beauty of the Loxahatchee Club

Often described as a “shot makers course”, the Loxahatchee Club in Jupiter, Florida is a Jack Nicklaus masterpiece. Set over 7,240 yards, the course has been a mainstay as one of the top private courses in the United States.

Much of the praise is appropriately deposited on superintendent James Sprankle. Sprankle has been one of the most forward-thinking supers in the industry. He went with his intuition to try a new bermudagrass new to the market five years ago called Latitude 36® Bermudagrass. This grass was developed by Oklahoma State University’s turfgrass breeding program; a program known for its development of cold-tolerant bermudas. But no one really knew how it would handle the climate and rigors of South Florida. Sprankle developed his maintenance strategy over the years and now has created one of the most beautiful landscapes in golf.
