Shark’s Tooth Golf Club
Located alongside Lake Powell, Florida’s largest coastal dune lake, Shark’s Tooth Golf Club offers an incredible golf experience. Coastal dune lakes are rare ecosystems found only in a few places around the world, so this spot is special.

Immerse yourself in nature as you play this course; it stretches 7,209 yards from the back tees. These fairways feature views of Lake Powell, oaks, pines, and wooden bridges.

The Origins Golf Club was designed by another renowned course architect, Davis Love III. It stretches approximately 1,800 yards along Florida’s Emerald Coast and is built upon “a spirit of relaxed refinement.” Fantastic views abound as you play this course.
