Juliette Falls Earns National Top-10 Recognition

GOLF Magazine selects Juliette Falls among top new courses 

OCALA, FL – Juliette Falls Golf & Spa Community, the dramatic, new, semi-private golf club designed by John Sanford, has been selected among the “Top 10 New Courses You Can Play” by GOLF Magazine. Appeared in the publication’s annual listing issue.

More than six million people read Time, Inc.’s GOLF Magazine each month: more than any other golf publication. The magazine says it selected its’ “best new public courses” based on input from course-ranking panelists, editors, and spies in the field.

Concerning Juliette Falls, GOLF Magazine wrote:


“Architect John Sanford coaxed a classic parkland layout from gently rolling terrain, and while there are a few bells and whistles–four waterfall features and eye-catching waste bunkers dotted with shrubbery and wire grass – the course’s strength lies in the variety of its par-4s and the standout quartet of par-3s, two of which feature Daliesque greens that seemingly melt into the water. Gallop over here before it goes private sometime down the road.”

“Golf Magazine’s recognition of Juliette Falls as one of the Top 10 New Courses You Can Play is a fitting testimony to this wonderful site and the time and effort given to it by a magnificent architect, John Sanford”, said Tom Cioffi, Director of Operations for Juliette Falls Golf & Spa. “To bring his vision to life John put together one of the best construction teams in the business with Gary Kessener as the final shaper.”

“A lot of components have to come together to have a chance to design and build a golf course like Juliette Falls”, continued Cioffi. “We knew we had those components in place and could make it happen. Seeing Juliette Falls along side of this year’s field of finalists is quite a thrill. We are truly honored.”

Juliette Falls Golf & Spa Community, located about an hour north of Orlando near Ocala, opened to rave reviews in October 2017. Not since the creation of the vaunted and exclusive Jupiter Hills Club in 1970 has a dramatic new golf club created so much anticipation in Florida. Juliette Falls meanders over a portion of the 546 acres of equestrian land in the Ocala countryside. The area features rolling terrain and horse farms similar to that of Kentucky bluegrass horse country.

Juliette Falls golf course is the centerpiece of the private golf and spa community.

Juliette Falls property owners can enjoy exclusive membership to the 7,239-yard, par-72 golf club: a rolling parkland design highlighted by four waterfalls, pine, oak, and palmetto forests, and flowers creating a tapestry of visual richness.

Homes at Juliette Falls Golf & Spa Community range in price from $250,000 to over $1-million, including lots, interior furnishings, pool, spa package, mature landscaping and irrigation. Also offered in Juliette Falls is a 136-acre Nature Preserve and Wildlife Conservation area with five miles of groomed trails for walking, jogging and biking.
