Florida’s Sailfish Point Golf Club combines the remoteness of a barrier island with the proximity of a comfortable neighborhood hangout.

Head east along A1A, on two causeways that take you over the St. Lucie River and the Intercoastal Waterway, to the southern end of Hutchinson Island. From there, just keep going south, away from civilization, across a much smaller road until you reach this island-like paradise surrounded by water.
Sailfish Point Golf Club, all of 532 acres, includes a nearly equal number of residences, everything from estate lots down to condominiums. Some of those homesites line a well-protected marina on the north side of the property.
