Nick Price Breaks Ground at New Soleta Golf Club in Sarasota, Florida

Soleta Golf Club in Sarasota, Florida

The much anticipated Nick Price Design golf course at Soleta Golf Club  in the Sarasota/Bradenton/Lakewood Ranch area is now under construction and will be ready for play in November.

According to Managing Partner and developer, David Turner, “We are excited to begin construction on this long-awaited project and we already have four holes layed out.  The golf experience that Nick is creating for us will result in a must-play course in a pristine setting with unparalleled practice facilities.”

The 7,400 yard, par-72 Soleta Golf Club course is being routed separately from the future residences and amenity locations.  Holes wind through the 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.  

“It’s an honor to have the opportunity to design the golf course at Soleta,” said Hall of Fame golfer and 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.  I am also really happy that no wetlands have been 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 opening feeling with lots of sand and native areas.  There will be lots of variety for shot making and it will be firm and fast.

Renowned golf instructor David Leadbetter, who has coached touring professionals to major championship titles and worldwide tournament victories, announced his design of a world-class 30-acre signature practice and performance facility that won’t be found at any private club.  Aptly named “The Field of Dreams,” the grounds will contain different grasses, different greens, and elevation changes to help players fine tune their games and be tournament ready.  In addition to the expansive outdoor practice areas, an indoor center will include a state-of-the-art biomechanics studio, clubfitting, a putting studio, simulators and other advanced training technologies. 

Three exclusive enclaves (The Sanctuary, The Ranch and Village Bungalows) will accommodate 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 available for members and guests.

Soleta is the name used by indigenous native Americans from the area for sandhill cranes.

A limited number of National Golf memberships, in addition to Full Golf, Sports and Social categories, are available now.  For more information, contact Membership Director Alan Pope at or (407) 284-0888.  Visit for updates on course construction and further details about the exceptional Soleta Golf Club lifestyle community.
