Shark's Tooth Golf Club: This scenic and challenging Greg Norman layout is part of a private members club, which also opens its doors to guests staying at the WaterColor Inn & Resort. Forming the centrepiece of the Wild Heron residential community, the course expansively weaves its way through a wonderfully natural pine-forest, rarely intruded upon by any housing. The front-nine's relatively even terrain has not been overly enhanced by mounding, giving a generally flattish perspective to this outward loop. Lake Powell, one of the largest coastal dune lakes in Florida, provides the setting for the front-nine's signature duo, the long par-3 5th, and the tight and testing par-5 6th. From the tee (and crossing some fairways) you'll need to take-on some testing carries over wetland areas, while beyond the usually good-width fairways, encounters with ever-present live oaks and loblolly pines may well cost you a shot or two en route to the greens. Clusters of white-sand bunkers and sandy waste areas also pose a frequent threat. Around the subtly sloping putting surfaces there's plenty of opportunity to exercise your chipping skills. Smooth run-off areas are more in evidence than clinging rough. On the attractive and more undulating back-nine, the par-5 13th, long par-3 14th and par-4 15th provide another wonderfully scenic stretch of holes, located directly alongside Lake Powell. Closing out your round, the fabulous par-4 18th is played towards the impressive clubhouse, which beautifully frames your approach to the final green.
