This 72-hole, 2,300-acre mixed-use development on the Intracoastal Waterway offers quality golf and excellent value. The Dye Course, host to the annual Hootie and the Blowfish ‘Monday after the Masters’ tournament, is a tough track replete with Pete Dye’s infamous pitfalls. More player-friendly golf is available on Barefoot courses designed by Tom Fazio, Greg Norman, and Davis Love III, the latter a traditional test marked by faux plantation ruins and putting surfaces inspired by the turtleback greens at Pinehurst No. 2. Multi-bedroom Golf Villas and posh Yacht Club Villas overlooking the Intracoastal are available.
