Salt Golf Preserve - The Highly Anticipated Championship Golf Course in Southwest Florida - Officially Opens for Play

by LBH Marketing

Saltleaf Golf Preserve will feature a now open 18-hole championship course, designed by golf champion Raymond Floyd, and 9-hole short course debuting later this year.

London Bay Development Group, one of Southwest Florida’s most prominent developers, has unveiled the first phase of Saltleaf Golf Preserve with the opening of its public, 18-hole championship course designed by four-time major champion and World Golf Hall of Famer Raymond Floyd. This also includes the debut of 40,000 square feet, state-of-the-art driving-range facility and a newly reimagined 12,500-square-foot clubhouse complete with an upscale restaurant, bar, and pro shop.

To maintain the highest standards, Saltleaf Golf Preserve is operated by Troon, a worldwide leader in golf and club management. Tee times are now available for booking on saltleafgolf.com

Located beside Florida’s oldest aquatic preserve, within the 500-acre coastal village of Saltleaf on Estero Bay, the 18-hole daily fee course showcases the unparalleled expertise and strategic design for which Floyd is known. In keeping with his design philosophy of remaining true to the native topography of the land, it embraces the natural Florida habitat, seamlessly fusing the scenic environment with an esteemed layout.

At 7,075 yards with a slope rating of 126 and a course rating of 72.8, Saltleaf Golf Preserve stretches 150 acres. Fresh design elements include naturally exposed sandy areas with no formal bunkers, water smart, high-performance grasses like Tif-Eagle and Bimini Bermuda, abundant lakes, rolling terrain and profound quiet amidst a nature preserve. Avid golfers can look forward to the course’s signature second hole, with a drivable par 4, and an experience that will test every club in their bag.

“We are extremely proud to finally present our brand new 18-hole championship golf course to the Southwest Florida community, signifying that Saltleaf on Estero Bay has officially come to life,” said Mark Wilson, CEO of London Bay Development Group. “This inaugural phase of Saltleaf Golf Preserve marks a significant stride towards realizing our vision for the entire Saltleaf community— to curate a living experience with all that one might desire, offering little reason to leave, and a life in harmony with nature."

Saltleaf Golf Preserve will soon deliver the first nine-hole par 3 short-course in Southwest Florida, The Leaf, combining fun playability and challenge for all ages and levels. Slated to open in December, the short course will be the perfect introduction to golf-curious players or those looking for a more relaxed pace, with regular programming of pop-up bars, music, and games.

Immersed in nature without any homes in sight, Saltleaf Golf Preserve will coexist with 144 acres of Florida uplands preserve, surrounded by native flora and a range of ecosystems, including a variety of species from tropical, salt-resistant plants to living local wildlife.

Its location within the master-planned community of Saltleaf on Estero Bay will also be home to The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Estero Bay, offering a one-of-a-kind ownership opportunity for buyers seeking luxury living. Upon completion, additional destination amenities will include a new 72-slip Saltleaf Marina, five-star waterfront restaurant, chef-driven dining locales, new future residential offerings, nature, biking trails, and more.

Saltleaf is situated just north of Naples and only 20 minutes from Southwest Florida International Airport. Its priceless location near the friendly town of Bonita Springs also provides easy access to the area’s sugar-white sand beaches, boutiques, galleries, and restaurants.

Satleaf Golf Preserve is located at 23001 Coconut Point Resort Dr, Estero, FL 33928. For more information or to book tee times, visit www.saltleafgolf.com
