Conservatory Course Tour

The Tom Watson Signature design Conservatory Course is Florida's longest and is truly a masterpiece.

This breathtaking course is highlighted by waterfalls, babbling brooks and veneered field stone work. To the 140 sand and coquina bunkers, Watson also added three sod-faced bunkers, a nod to his affinity for British links-style golf. Golf Digest, in its January 2008 issue, ranked The Conservatory third on its elite list of America's Best New Public Courses.

This is an excellent starting hole that sets the tone for the round. Players will need to avoid the steep faced fairway bunkers which protect the right side of the fairway. Each side of the hole is landscaped with beautiful coquina rock mounding.
