The Le Vista Center on TG Lee Boulevard is known for hosting sporting events. It is a good place to host various sorts of events, private and corporate. It hosts the Annual March of Dimes Mud Volleyball Tournament, in which more than a hundred corporate teams wallow in a couple of feet of mud. It's fun to watch and fun to be in, perhaps.

The par is 72. Gold Tees are 7432 yards with a slope 137. Blue Tees are 6905 yards with a slope 133. White Tees are 6521 yards with a slope 129. Red Tees are 5755 yards with a slope 120. Hunter's Creek is very, very, long. There is also water on a number of holes. The yardage from the Gold tees borders on the ridiculous. This beautifully conditioned course routinely ranks among the best public courses in the state. Oddly, the par-3s are not long. Unfortunately, this leaves a bunch of yardage for the other 14 holes. This course is a 1986 Lloyd Clifton design.

The narrow fairways at Ventura are bordered by houses. You'll be treated to lots of sand. Water comes into play on all but a few holes. This very short course demands precision rather than strength. Several of the par-4s are well under 300 yards. The par-5s are all at 500 yards or less. There are two reasonably long par-3s. This is a semi-private golf course. Soft spikes only.
The par is 72. Gold Tees are 6627 yards with a slope of 129. Blue Tees are 6239 yards with a slope of 124. White Tees are 5573 yards with a slope of 113. Rio Pinar is a stately, mature course that hosted the Florida Citrus Open on the PGA Tour in the 1970s. Tall pines shade a number of dogleg fairways. The compact greens are in excellent shape and are receptive to approach shots. Traditional bunkering guards the greens and intrudes into a few fairways. This is a good solid course. The par-5s on the front nine are short; those on the back nine are longer. Most of the par-3s will have you hitting long irons. Mark Mahannah designed this course, and it was finished in 1959. This is a private golf course. Soft spikes only.
