Golf Course Reopens Today!

Monday, September 20th, marks the opening of the City’s fully renovated 67-acre golf facility, previously known as Springtree Golf Club. Over the course of a year, McCumber Golf, Inc. – led by former PGA pro Mark McCumber – completely remodeled the Club’s greens, tees and fairways. In addition, a new irrigation system was installed and drainage repairs were made.

To complement its new look, the facility has a new name, Seven Bridges at Springtree Golf Club – a nod to the course’s unique architectural features. The course now offers enhanced play for golfers of all levels, and is the perfect complement to Seven Bridges’ elegantly appointed 7,000-square-foot clubhouse. Breakfast and lunch are being served in the course-view restaurant, and catering is available for special events.

The course is open daily from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., weather permitting. Sunrise resident membership rates start at $250. For more information – and to reserve your tee time – call (
