Golf Arthur Hills' imaginative design for the Willoughby Golf Club preserves the inherent beauty of the lush subtropical landscape, with four sets of tees to accommodate golfers at all levels. From the championship tees used in US Open qualifiers, the course plays to 6,731 yards between towering trees and natural wetlands, over sparkling lakes and around more than 55 ball-gobbling bunkers. The practice facility features a distance-programmed driving range, putting and chipping greens and a wedge and sand iron area for short game refinement.
Clubhouse The bright and spacious clubhouse provides a perfect blend of refined Florida architecture and first-class social and recreational facilities, including two dining rooms, a comfortable bar and lounge, private meeting and event space, a covered terrace overlooking the 18th hole, two card rooms and a fully stocked pro shop.
Tennis Members enjoy access to five fully lighted Har-Tru clay courts, with a full-time year-round instructor and an active program of lessons, clinics, tournaments and inter-club matches.
Fitness The on-site fitness center offers the convenience of working out in the community clubhouse. Treadmills, stationary bikes, elliptical, rowing, or ab crunch machines as well as a leg press, multi press and free weights are available for aerobic and strengthening workouts.
Recreation In addition to golf, tennis and other recreational amenities, residents participate in an active schedule of community clubs and events, including bridge, reading and choral groups, holiday parties, talent shows and a guest lecture series. Surrounding Martin County has an abundance of parks, nature trails and bike paths to explore, and the development is 15 minutes away from lovely barrier island beaches.
Swimming A heated outdoor pool with a cabana, snack bar and sun deck is located adjacent to the clubhouse.

Full-service marinas and fishing charters are easily accessible from the development.
