The Conservatory® Course, a Tom Watson Signature design, is comprised of 140 acres of dramatic elevation and undulating greens not commonly found in Florida. The Conservatory includes nearly 76 acres of man-made lakes and three waterfall features. Two Carolina-style creeks wind their way through the course and a large stunning waterfall serves as a natural water treatment system.
Each hole has six tee boxes extending the challenge of avoiding the 140 bunkers of coquina shell & white bunker sand that dot the course. Currently the longest and hardest-ranked course in Florida, Watson also added three sod-faced bunkers, a nod to his affinity for British links-style golf.
