Located on 315 acres of lush, tropical landscape, this immensely playable Tom Fazio designed 18 hole championship course is magnificently sculpted to reflect the natural beauty of its environment. It features abundant elevation changes and picturesque lakes throughout, which are so unusual for a Sarasota golf course.
Beautiful wetlands, colorful flowering shrubs, informal native grass areas, marshes with aquatic plants, and mature Oak trees enhance the natural setting, which can be easily enjoyed on foot. "This will be a terrific walking course," says Fazio, "with very reasonable connections between the greens and tees."
With six sets of tees, from championship lengths of 7,417 yards to forward tees of 5,175 yards, golfers of all skill levels can play the course at a length that will challenge them. Says Fazio, "The strong low handicap player will want to attack the direct lines of play. But for the higher handicapper, we're creating options and varieties around strong hazards."
