St. George Golf Club is the golf course formally known as Bloomington Hills Golf Course. The original course owners had a hard time keeping up with the costs of golf course maintenance. Most likely they used the golf course, which opened in 1976, as a way to sell home building lots in the then new St. George neighborhood of Bloomington Hills. After struggling for a while, a deal was reached with the City of St. George, who formally took over the golf course in the late 1990′s.
The move was a winner for the city, the surrounding homeowners, and golfers. St. George City has proven it knows how to economically take care of golf courses. The city has done more than just act as a caretaker for the former Bloomington Hills Golf Course. The St. George Golf Club has literally blossomed in the hands of expert city planners who did an amazing job utilizing the surrounding Ft. Pierce Wash terrain. The congruency that has developed between man made course and nature is due to the excellent integration of the original, natural desert terrain, which act as informal bunkers.
