Featuring a unique “dunescape” appearance, the layout is framed by sand dunes and native grasses. From the back green tees, the course plays to a championship caliber yardage of 7,159 and a formidable slope rating of 152 (one of the highest in the state).

Designed by Greg Norman and voted the second best new private course by Golf Digest in 2002, Shark's Tooth Golf Club was purchased by The St. Joe Company to bolster its high-end, golf course holdings.

Tucked among the oaks and pines along the shores of the historic lake, which has been designated an Outstanding Florida Waterway, Shark's Tooth is a challenging course that co-exists with its surroundings.
