GOLF - Wednesday, October 25, 2023 - 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm

The Lagoon Course - Challenge Your Game Under Swaying Palms

The course, although not especially long, places a premium on accurate drives and thoughtful approaches. Water is definitely the dominant feature with a mosaic of lakes and lagoons threatening golfers on 18 holes. Tall pines, palms and ancient, sprawling oaks form the contours of this lushly landscaped course. Kept in immaculate condition, the fairways are narrow and the greens small and fast.

Lagoon Course - Golf: $182 (includes cart fee)/Golf with rental clubs: $262 (includes cart fee and club rental)
