Golf Course Information
When Sanctuary Ridge opened for play in 1999, it was called the Diamond Players Club and owned by a group of investors consisting of former and current professional athletes including MLB pitcher Todd Stottlemyer and PGA Tour player Steve Jones. Their vision was to expand the DPC label throughout the country and create a network of courses - much like the TPC has done - only on a larger scale. Unfortunately, due to the economic downturn in the early 2000s, it never became a reality and the Diamond Players Club concept faded away.
Reopened and dubbed Sanctuary Ridge, the course plays 7005 yards from the back tees to a par of 71. From back here, the course rating is 71.9 with a slope of 124. Five sets of tees ranging from 5,035 to 7,005 yards will make the course fun and challenging for golfers of all skill levels and abilities. The white tees at 5,695 will provide a good challenge for senior golfers.
Golf course architect Terrill LaGree - best known in the area for his work at Black Diamond in Lecanto, FL oversaw the design and construction. LaGree used the varying elevation changes and natural terrain to create a course that is very unique to the area. As a result, nine of the eighteen holes play downhill and only four play significantly uphill, which can go a long way in shooting a good score. For all his hard work, LaGree and Sanctuary Ridge received a nomination for "Best New Golf Course in America in 1999 by Golf Digest magazine.
