What will South Florida’s Hottest Golf Course Designer Take On Next?
Kipp Schulties fingerprints are all over country club courses throughout South Florida, from BallenIsles in Palm Beach Gardens to Hunter’s Run in Boynton to the Boca Raton Resort & Club, his first project as an independent designer, and now Mizner Country Club in Delray Beach.
While the industry’s most famous golf course architects—think Pete Dye, Tom Fazio, Jack Nicklaus—are busy with original projects in exotic locations around the world, Schulties has quietly carved a six county niche in Florida. Along the way, the Jupiter resident not only has become the king of golf course renovation in South Florida, he’s earned his own lofty reputation for thoughtful, accessible and aesthetically striking revisions—on courses, in many cases, originally designed by an industry heavyweight.
Kipp Schulties Golf Design is a multi-dimensional golf services firm committed to developing championship-quality golf course facilities. Drawing on experience gained from working in the field since 1992 and operating his own firm since 1997, Schulties combines the best aspects of classic designs with the pizzazz made possible by modern construction equipment and methods. The former collegiate golfer appreciates shot value and playability, knowing what is too difficult, too easy, or what’s on the edge, on the envelope of playability.
Mizner Country Club, located near stylish Boca Raton and the trendy Palm Beaches, is Schulties newest masterpiece. Mizner delivers a vibrant, family-friendly community offering resort-style amenities including active tennis, fitness and swimming programs, casual and fine dining options, a never-ending calendar of social events, and now Schulties touch on the original 18-hole Arnold Palmer championship golf course. The enhancement project brings new greens, fairways and other significant improvements for endless golf excitement.
