This top 100 golf course not only winds along pristine wetlands and sparkling lakes, but also plays six holes directly on the Atlantic Ocean. The course concludes with a thrilling finale dubbed “The Bear Claw” — a collection of four daunting holes precariously edging the sweeping coastline. The Ocean Course received a ranking as one of Florida’s Top 5 courses. This course is truly “Florida’s Ocean Course”.
This breathtaking course is highlighted by waterfalls, babbling brooks and veneered field stone work. To the 140 sand and coquina bunkers, Watson also added three sod-faced bunkers, a nod to his affinity for British links-style golf. Golf Digest, in its January 2008 issue, ranked The Conservatory third on its elite list of America’s Best New Public Courses.
