Conceptualized by celebrated golf course designer Tripp Davis and PGA Tour star Tom Lehman, the Golf Club at Ocala Preserve not only includes all the challenges of a traditionally-styled golf course, but its revolutionary routing provides maximum flexibility in terms of playability, challenge, and time commitment.

Sculpted on less than 50 fun-filled acres, players have four options to enjoy an ideal round: the Skills Course (18 holes, par 54), the Gallery Loop (6 holes, par 18), the Players Loop (6 holes, par 24), and the par 72 Players Course (three rounds of the Players Loop).
