Great and very challenging course

I love this course. Very challenging in spots, but offers some high risk, high reward shots. My dad eagled a par 5 when he went for a big drive and dangerous approach. I did the... read more

I love this course. Very challenging in spots, but offers some high risk, high reward shots. My dad eagled a par 5 when he went for a big drive and dangerous approach. I did the same and ended up with a double bogey. The staff is very professional and the course was in great shape when we played it in... More

Demanding but enjoyable layout. Lots of water (it is on a river). Multiple tees make it easier to play but there are numerous forced carries either off the tee or along the fairway. Not for the faint of heart.

Waterlefe Is a challenging course with stunning views especially along the back 9. You don't have to be a long ball hitter, but you must be pretty accurate to avoid the many hazards that line all of the holes. If you have time and would like to improve your game, I would recommend taking a lesson or swing evaluation with... More

We've been coming to Waterlefe for over 10 Years and seen it develop over that time into a great golf course. Please be aware it is challenging for the mid-high handicap player with its own version of Amen Corner starting at 14th through to 18th (there's some respite at the 16th). This stretch can turn a great round into one... More

Loved the course! Very tough if you have not played it before. You really need to place your Tee shots in order to have a good shot into the green. Overall the course was well manicured and the greens we're fair. Will definitely Play It Again when I get the chance! Reasonably priced too.. $63 for 18 and a cart..... More

Challenging but fair. Bring a bunch of balls if you're a hooker or a slicer. Great condition. We played after a moderate rain storm and the course handled all that water amazingly! Very fun track. We drove down from St Pete and will definitely be back!

Great course, lot's of water but a fair course. We had a great time and the course was in fantastic condition and the greens were a joy to putt on. The holes are creative and provide great challenges. I confess, I did lose a few balls.

Your adventure begins at the driving range, as you hit balls into the water. Get use to that shot as there's lots of water on this course. The course layout is very good and a there are a few spectacular views on the back nine making it an enjoyable course to play. Course was in good condition and greens were... More

Lots of water and beautiful fairways and perfect greens. You can lose balls here but not if you drive the ball straight. Got out early and played a 3 1/2 hour round. The 15,16 and 17th holes are very cool. Service was top notch.

18 holes of fun with a lot of water coming into play. Bring extra golf balls! Layout was very attractive and greens were fast and in great condition. Carts have GPS but a laser range finder is always helpful. Played with my son on Thursday the 29th for $69 each including the cart. Took 4 1/4 hrs to play. Not... More
