The 15 newest homes listed for sale at the Shark’s Tooth Golf Course at Wild Heron. All year long, Shark’s Tooth Golf Course offers an idyllic golfing experience. Shark’s Tooth has mature trees, undulating greens, and deep bunkers. It is tucked away among the oaks and pines of a coastal sanctuary on the shores of Lake Powell, Florida’s largest dune lake. The 18-hole Greg Norman-designed course offers both lake and pine forest views to Watersound Club Members and their guests. Watersound Club Members have access to everything they need before and after their rounds thanks to the expansive clubhouse and well-stocked pro shop.
Shark’s Tooth Golf Club is located along the shores of Lake Powell, Florida’s largest Coastal Dune Lake, 20 miles to the north of Panama City. It is almost right next to Camp Creek. The fact that Greg Norman, the Great White Shark, designed the course, which opened for play in 2002, should not come as a surprise.
Because their freshwater content is so close to salty seawater, coastal dune lakes are not only uncommon but also shallow. Shark’s Tooth was granted Silver Signature Sanctuary Status by Audubon International, and developments that border these environments naturally require consideration. The rundown of natural achievements expected to consent and thusly get this grant are as long as your arm and an honor Shark’s Tooth share with a couple of other Floridian fairways.
Shark’s Tooth is one of a kind because it has five holes that run along the shores of Lake Powell, fairways that are surrounded by oaks and pines, and wooden bridges that cross protected wetlands. We were able to use a number of oaks and loblolly pines to frame the holes on the site, and we kept the sand ridges on some of them as a way to define them,” Norman said. These sand ridges give the golf course a lot of character, which is something that Florida courses often lack. The entire location exudes the atmosphere of a retreat.
The 7,209-yard Shark’s Tooth course is part of an 800-acre residential community. The routing makes good use of the course’s lovely rolling terrain, which is great for golf but unusual for Florida, especially since the course is so close to the Gulf Coast. We are able to adhere to my long-standing directive of taking a “minimalist” design approach with this site, more than any other we have worked with. Norman made a comment. We moved very little earth because of this property’s natural undulation, which is always good for the environment.
