HEAD PRO: Peter Dennis.
DIRECTIONS: Take State Road 64 one mile east of I-75 and turn left.
HOLE TO REMEMBER: The eighth hole is the No. 1 handicap hole, and rightfully so. It’s a wicked, dogleg right that narrows near the green. In addition to water, there is a huge, deep sand trap on the right.
UNFORGETTABLE: Big hitters get their kicks on the 299-yard, par-4 second, but water down the left side can easily lead to a double-bogey or worse. Waterfowl and alligators add to the peaceful vista.
INSIDE INFO: Tournaments and leagues are welcome.
DID YOU KNOW?: The course is junior-friendly and plays host to the traditionally strong Saint Stephen’s Episcopal School boys team.
