BLUE HAWK Cup 2024

The BLUE HAWK Cup Golf Tournament showcases fierce rivalry between Team BLUE and Team HAWK, employing a Ryder Cup-style event. Despite the intense competition, camaraderie prevails, fostering a spirited atmosphere where players unite under their team banners, vying for victory with every swing of the club.

Ocean Reef Club boasts two 18-hole courses, a rarity in the Florida Keys – even among standard golf clubs. Although the Hammock Course and the Dolphin Course offer distinctly different tests of golf, both feature scenic vistas and an enjoyable challenge for players of all levels.

The Dolphin Course features fairways winding past tamarind, coconut palms and mahogany trees as well as other exotic landscaping. This is the epitome of island golf in the Keys. Glittering water hazards delight the eye and call for accuracy. This island golf course allows more margin for error off the tee, with quite generous fairways.

The Hammock Course is partially situated in a wildlife sanctuary of mangrove and tropical hardwood hammocks and contains many rare and endangered species of plants for players to observe and enjoy. This ocean golf course is considered the more scenic of the Club’s courses and is a true test of target golf. With fairways meandering through this natural hammock and with water hazards on fourteen of the eighteen holes, concentration becomes key to a good round.
