Saw the phrase "private golf destination" a few times.
Good luck to them.

It's a hot bed these days, Darmor, The Covey, new Chet Williams at Big Easy Ranch, The Falls is back too.


BTW I wouldn't say it's halfway between Houston and San Antonio, I live in West Houston and am 40 minutes from there, it's not quite a suburb yet but I know plenty of folks who commute from there.

Surprise no mention of the 21 club near Aiken/Augusta, Broomsedge etc. or the numerous other high ends on the east coast in South Florida(besides Apogee).....

I'm looking forward to the completion of 7 Mile Beach -  Hobart, Tasmania. They are schedule to open later half of 2024. I've been following their Twitter account, some great photos of build and progress.

We seeded the last hole - the long par 5,3rd - last week and Mike DeVries is on his way home (via the South Island of New Zealand) after the best part of two years living in Hobart.
It was a massive commitment to Mat Goggin's 25-year dream to make a good course in the city he grew up playing.

Yes, it was an odd grouping...
Please give us an update on Warmouth Sands!

Jeff,Warmouth is back on track and 6 holes shaped...irrigation has begun...it was coordinated with a new US Highway 1 Bypass that got delayed for over 6 months and therefore any dirt coming needed from highway could not be gotten.  All good.  Fall line is the one that I would have thought Links may have mentioned but did not...

Mike,


   Thank you for the update. It's always a delight to see a course having an organic connection to the community. Lastly, 7 Mile's social media is the best I've seen for any project. Kudos to the entire team.

All run by Mat - who has done a brilliant marketing job without spending any money on it.
He followed the Richard Sattler/Barnbougle model - which was basically, "If the course is good enough it'll sell itself"
Of course, having photogenic holes helps -  a lot!

Tim,


Maybe the only one of these new courses on great land with an airport ten minutes away - and 20 minutes from the middle of a beautiful city.

LOL. Very cool part of "Old Florida", but certainly not busting at the seams with luxury housing.


My guess is they're targeting Lakewood Ranch. I just checked how far of a drive it is for me (downtown) and The Google Machine spit out 57 minutes. And a very large % of snowbirds have gone back north for the season so I can only imagine how long it would take during peak season.


Wish 'em all luck....

But the Nick Price Myakka City project write-up says, "Price is back in Florida—on the west side of the state—for the private Soleta project, which includes a 7,400-yard course that’s routed separately from an enclave of 93 luxury residences and other amenities. " I lived in Bradenton and Anna Maria Island in the 90s and that was in the middle of nowhere to us.  I knew about Lakewood Ranch and communities east of the 75 but that is still OUT THERE.

Of course, you are correct regarding Soleta. I overlooked it on the link.


Where are the owners of those 93 luxury residences going to go for a night out on the town, or even dinner? I mean, one can only eat at the Club's dining room so many times and Myakka City, while I love the aforementioned "Old Florida" feel, ain't exactly the G-spot for the type of fine dining these future homeowners are used to......
