Florida's Waterlefe Golf & River Club tops Power Rankings for the week of June 22

The Tampa area golf scene, with hundreds of courses from Brooksville down south to Sarasota, is a dizzying one.

This week, however, one sticks out above the rest: Bradenton's Waterlefe Golf & River Club , which earned perfect marks on Golf Advisor and leads this week's edition of Power Rankings.

Reviews particularly love Waterlefe's value, service and conditions, and most do point out this course, with lots of forced carries, can be a challenge.
