Areas which were once used for farming and shell rock mining are today’s greens and fairways. Nowadays, the native Florida landscaping, flora and environmental caretaking have earned Osprey the designation as an Audubon International Signature Course – one of only five in the world. Its 27-holes are brilliantly designed and inspiring to play.
