Welcome to Waterlefe Golf & River Club, where our slogan, “You Deserve the Best…..You Deserve Waterlefe” becomes a reality! Our golf course is situated within a natural setting among five unforgettable signature golf holes that border the Manatee River. Designed by Ted McAnlis, our championship par 72 course offers eight different tees ranging from 4,800 yards to 6,900 yards that are challenging and fun for golfers of all skill levels.
Host to the US Open Qualifier an unprecedented six times, the Waterlefe golf course is renowned for excellent course conditions and most notably received the “Top 25 Golf Courses in Florida” award from Golf Advisor. Waterlefe also boasts Trip Advisor’s Certificate of Excellence award.
Embraced by the beauty of natural preserves and wildlife, this residential golf community was developed for those who have a passion for fine living, an exceptional golf experience, and life on the water.
Now is the optimal time to join Waterlefe Golf Club since we are waiving the initiation fee. This is an unprecedented opportunity to join fellow golf enthusiasts as a member of one of the most celebrated semi-private golf clubs in the country.
Waterlefe offers annual “Passport” Golf Memberships to both residents and non-residents of our community. With multiple membership categories, Waterlefe provides a true “Golf Club” experience that includes both social and competitive golf events.
Benefits of membership include but are not limited to the following:
“If one looks at the world’s finest courses, all have one thing in common – memorable holes. Waterlefe will share at least that much with the world’s finest, for it will have not only memorable, but unforgettable holes.
The course starts, touches at times and ends on a particularly beautiful section of the Manatee River, replete with wide expanses of pristine marshes and pleasant coves, and the player should not be surprised if, on the 15th tee, he or she spots a family of manatees poking their noses up for a breath of air.
Waterlefe has not been an easy course to develop, and a great amount of time, effort and expense went into protecting, and where necessary restoring, the very environment that gives the course it’s unique character. The course will present both challenge and beauty to players of differing abilities.
From the ‘tips’ Waterlefe will be a real tiger (try the par 3, 230 yard 9th hole – all marsh from tee to green). Members will find play from the other tees to be more forgiving, although certainly not a pushover. From any of the 5 sets of tees provided, Waterlefe® will present a memorable – even unforgettable – golfing experience.” – Ted McAnlis
After golf our clubhouse provides the perfect atmosphere to relax with your favorite beverage and share the highlights of your round. Enjoy breakfast or casual lunches in the Grille Room and watch the latest sports through the cocktail hour on Direct TV.

The Waterlefe Marina Club is an equity membership club that offers our member boating enthusiasts a high quality marina facility. The Club, the only residential marina directly on the Manatee River, maintains 59 slips ranging in size from 20 to 29 feet. The Club is a not-for-profit corporation, managed by an elected Board of three members. The Club has an annual budget funded by members’ dues which cover fresh water, electricity, insurance, common area lighting, maintenance/cleaning of the docks, and 24-hour Video Surveillance/Security. Members are assigned slips and have the flexibility to rent their assigned slips when they are “between” boats.
Due to our convenient location, club members can board their boats and immediately enjoy water sports of all kinds, and with just a short trip downriver to the Gulf of Mexico experience world-class river and flats fishing, offshore fishing and cruising to the numerous restaurants and recreational facilities.
