Construction underway for country club community in Port St. Lucie

PORT ST LUCIE, Fla. — Construction is underway on a more than 800-home community in Port St. Lucie, which includes a golf course designed by a famous golfer.

Tuesday, WPTV watched as crews continued installing an irrigation system to Glynlea, a country club community going up in between Midway and Glades Cut Off roads, west of Interstate 95.

Construction began this summer on the 560-acre plot of land.

The 862 homes included in the plan are comprised of 40 feet, 50 feet and 60 feet single-family lots and 35-foot lots for twin homes. The community also includes a country club with a fitness center, resort-style pool and golf pro shop.

Perhaps its biggest draw, however, is the community’s 18-hole golf course designed by 17-time PGA Tour champion Jim Furyk, who also holds the record for the lowest score in PGA tour history.

“It’s an honor to be the designer of this golf course and be a part of it, but really, we’re a part of a special community,” Furyk said. “What really drew me to the project is building something special here in Port St. Lucie.”

Austin Burr, Greenepointe developer’s regional president for southeast Florida, said the course also includes an aqua golf driving range. Burr hopes the community will add more housing to Port St. Lucie.

Glynlea is part of a much larger planned community called Wylder, which includes 4,000 homes over 2,000 acres.

“Of that, we’re going to have an age-restricted community,” Burr said, “we’re going to have conventional single family homes right up the road.”

Burr said in addition to the 55+ community, called Four Seasons, and the single family home development, called Brystol, Wylder will eventually include townhomes and condos for purchase, as well as build-to-rent style homes and apartments for leasing.
