Cabot to redevelop Florida’s World Woods Golf Club

TORONTO—Canadian golf-resort developer Cabot recently announced it has acquired World Woods Golf Club in Central West Florida with plans to undertake a redevelopment.

The 1,200-acre property, located 50 minutes from Tampa and 80 minutes from Orlando, will be known as Cabot Citrus Farms. World Woods was established by Yukihisa Inoue in 1993 and features two championship golf courses, Pine Barrens and Rolling Oaks, and extensive practice facilities, stated a release.

Renovations will begin in spring 2022 and Cabot Citrus Farms will open in 2023 with the two revitalized 18-hole courses, a par-3 course, a new clubhouse and practice facilities with a putting course and driving range.

Real estate development will follow with sales expected to begin in 2022. Features of the new development will include residential, retail, restaurants, fitness and spa amenities and a farmer’s market.

Cabot’s portfolio includes Cabot Cape Breton in Nova Scotia, Cabot Saint Lucia resort community in development on Saint Lucia and Cabot Revelstoke in British Columbia.

“I couldn’t wish for a better location for our first U.S. development,” said Ben Cowan-Dewar, CEO of Cabot, in a statement. “We are excited to build upon the amazing legacy established at World Woods and forge a new path for Cabot Citrus Farms as a vibrant golf and residential community that showcases the Sunshine State’s abundant natural offerings.”
