Is it a golf course or a nature preserve? Well, yes. This new championship golf course quietly weaves in and out of Saltleaf’s lush, 144-acre nature preserve. Where the only homes you’ll see belong to hawks, osprey, deer and other wildlife. Saltleaf Golf Preserve is bringing a whole new level of golf to Southwest Florida. With challenge, yes, but the fun of a family-friendly short course too.

New course opens late 2023

Grab your paddleboard, kayak … or sportboat. With boat slips for both residents and the public, Saltleaf Marina will invite everyone to come take a day trip to a nearby island, reel in a hefty red grouper, or just sit back and relax on a sunset cruise. The marina’s chef-driven restaurant provides yet another option: terrace dining with a side of crisp salt air.

Construction begins Fall 2022.

Nature’s hold on Estero Bay

Venture into the waters of this nearby estuary and you’ll see why it’s considered one of Florida’s healthiest — from the circling egrets to the redfish they hunt, hidden beneath thickets of mangroves. These beautiful trees clean the air, protect our coast, and hold centuries of indigenous history. It’s an honor and joy to be a respectful and supportive neighbor of Estero Bay, Florida’s very first aquatic preserve.
