Waterlefe Golf & River Club -- Waterlefe - Exceptional Winter Golf Experience
Review by: Robert Snider The first thing you notice about Waterlefe Golf and River Club is the beautiful landscaping aligning the drive to the clubhouse. The course is no different. It was in exceptional condition. We played the ball down with no alibies. While the "High Season" rates are a bit steep,(they include a sleeve of Pro V1's), the course could not have been in better shape. The Tifeagle greens, a form of Bermuda which requires no winter rye overseed, were in mid-summer form, even in February, and arguably the finest greens of any course anywhere. There are a number of holes which require a significant "carry" over either water or other non-playable terrain, so it may provide more challenge than most high handicappers prefer. Play about the course moved well and we saw the ranger numerous times throughout the round. Interestingly, the sign on the ranger's cart reads "player assistance." The carts are equipped with GPS which provided us with almost all the distance and hole layout information we needed to play the correct shots. My partner and I played with two member/residents, Gary and Angelo, who were friendly and helpful, as was the staff. The layout was well designed, providing some breathtaking views, and did not resemble the typical flat Florida concept. I highly recommend this course to anyone who craves the high-end country club experience without having to actually join one.
