Aquarina features a stunning 18-hole golf course located within the Archie Carr National Wildlife Refuge. Named for the legendary Florida conservationist, this important barrier island sanctuary is home to sea turtles, osprey, wading birds, otters, gopher tortoises, bobcats, manatee and dozens of other exotic subtropical species. Many of these creatures can be spotted near or on our public par 62 venue as it winds from the Atlantic dunes to the Indian River past groves of sabal palm and live oak, through mangrove marshes, and around eleven pristine lakes. Designed by Charles Ankrom, the contoured layout incorporates plenty of twists, turns, sand, woods, and water as it extends to 4313 yards from the longest tees. This length is a true test for advanced golfers, yet three shorter tee boxes present an ideal range of challenge for novices, ladies, seniors, youngsters, and families. Aquarina is a host facility for the game-changing PGA/USGA "Tee it Forward" program, which promotes faster play, enhanced learning, better scoring, and naturally, more fun.
