The task may have been like mixing oil and water but the designers and developers of Waterlefe Golf and River Club have succeeded to make impossible to possible. They have been able to mix one inland sport with a water sport, which wouldn't necessarily even cross into other people's mind in the first place. But now there is a place where those two lifestyles: boating and golfing are meeting.
These witty and clever developers noticed a piece of property in northeast of Manatee County that was the perfect land to make this unique union to come true. The 18 hole golf course is accompanied with 54 slip marina and waterfront residences, and all this is situated on the shores of Manatee River.
The golf course with the whole length of 6,908 yards is curving through the community and the wetland preserves. The designer, Ted McAnlis can be proud of his creation. He has designed challenging water hazards; in fact so challenging they are considered one of those most complicated ones in the whole Sarasota-Bradenton area. No wonder this golf course is attracting many golfers to test and perfect their skills.
And the boater's paradise is right next to all this. The river club is offering you direct access to the Manatee River. The homeowners of the community can purchase these slips. As one of the largest rivers of Florida, the Manatee River is offering fantastic fishing opportunities. After a bit of trekking to the west you can enjoy the fishing in the Gulf of Mexico.
The residences of the community are varying hugely from coach house styles condos to maintenance free villas and single family homes. The coach house condos have the price tag starting from $200,000 and the most expensive residences, the palatial homes along the river are reaching the price of $2.4. The properties are very diverse both in budget and style that any house buyer or investor should be able to find something for themselves.
Many residents from United Kingdom and Canada have as well found the Waterlefe. If you wonder why they are arriving here you can compare the facilities and the current exchange rates of Pound Sterling and Canadian Dollar. You are not able to find anything like Waterlefe with that little amount of money from those two countries. They are actually saying it would be crazy not to buy when there is such an amazing opportunity.
