Myakka City, Florida —Soleta Golf Club today held a groundbreaking ceremony to officially mark construction of the highly anticipated Nick Price Design golf course that expects to open for play in late 2024.
According to Managing Partner and developer, David Turner, “The Soleta project finally is underway with equipment on site for our private residential club community. A superb Nick Price course coupled with David Leadbetter’s 30-acre “field of dreams” signature practice facility presents a golf experience unmatched by any club in the state or elsewhere.”
The 7,400-yard, par-72 Soleta Golf Club course is routed separately from the location of the planned 93 luxury residences and many other amenities. Holes will wind through the undisturbed sanctuary-like land and of great importance is the commitment to the preservation of all wetlands with absolutely no impacts to these sensitive areas. Water conservation also is a critical issue, as is the enhancement of wildlife habitat and sound environmental stewardship. Price’s courses focus on the art of strategy and his designs embody a handcrafted approach that requires a significant investment of personal hours overseeing details from start to finish.
“It’s an honor to have the opportunity to design the golf course at Soleta,” said architect Nick Price. “We’re part of a great team assembled to create a special place for golfers to play, spend time with friends and have fun. The property has wetlands, uplands, open grassland and some great trees. We’ve laid out the golf course to take advantage and incorporate those natural features into the design of holes. Importantly, no wetlands will be impacted or eliminated anywhere on the property. These natural elements will be part of what gives the golf course its natural look and feel.”
According to Price, the golf course will have a natural and open feel incorporating sand and native areas. Course conditions will be firm and fast and challenge golfers with a variety of shot making choices.
Renowned golf instructor David Leadbetter, who has coached touring professionals to major championship titles and worldwide tournament victories, discussed his design of a world-class practice and indoor performance facility. Aptly named “The Field of Dreams,” the grounds will contain different grasses, a variety of greens and elevation changes to help players fine tune their games to be tournament ready. In addition to the expansive outdoor practice areas, the indoor center will include a state-of-the-art biomechanics studio, club fitting, a putting studio, simulators and other advanced training technologies.
Three exclusive enclaves (The Sanctuary, The Ranch and Village Bungalows) will accommodate the 93 custom built luxury residences. Two celebrated builders, John Cannon Homes and Anchor Builders, will design the perfect lifestyle retreat. One-acre plus estates will be available. All home sites are conveniently situated within one mile of the clubhouse. Additionally, 14 club cottages will be reserved for members and guests.
A limited number of National Golf memberships, in addition to Full Golf, Sports and Social categories, are available now.
