A Word From Our Golf Course Architect...
"If one looks at the world's finest courses, all have one thing in common - memorable holes. Waterlefe® will share at least that much with the world's finest, for it will have not only memorable, but unforgettable holes.
The course starts, touches at times and ends on a particularly beautiful section of the Manatee River, replete with wide expanses of pristine marshes and pleasant coves, and the player should not be surprised if, on the 15th tee, he or she spots a family of manatees poking their noses up for a breath of air.
Waterlefe® has not been an easy course to develop, and a great amount of time, effort and expense went into protecting, and where necessary restoring, the very environment that gives the course it's unique character. The course will present both challenge and beauty to players of differing abilities.
From the "tips" Waterlefe® will be a real tiger (try the par 3, 230 yard 9th hole - all marsh from tee to green). Members will find play from the other tees to be more forgiving, although certainly not a push-over. From any of the 5 sets of tees provided, Waterlefe® will present a memorable - even unforgettable - golfing experience." - Ted McAnlis
