Painting Class

Oil Painting classes are offered at Estero Country Club by renowned artist Regis Bobitski. No matter your skill level you will surely enjoy this eight week journey which is offered year round. Regis works with all students to create amazing works of art. At the conclusion of each session a display of all the art work created graces the hallways of Estero Country Club for the Membership to enjoy.

Bridge, Canasta, Gin Rummy, Mexican Train

Feeling lucky in southwest Florida? Why not join us for our many card games! Every month we host weekly events for Bridge, Canasta, Gin Rummy, Mexican Train and more! Playing Bridge is one of our most attended activities at Estero Country Club. You will see an exciting game in progress most days of the week. As a country club, we’re all about community, so our Bridge program is designed to welcome all level of players and offers both social bridge and duplicate games on Monday, as well as Couples Bridge on Wednesday evenings.

If Bridge isn’t in the cards, why not try your hand at many of our other card games, including Gin Rummy! When Gin Rummy suddenly surged to the forefront in 1938, most dictionaries and almost all Bridge Writers jumped to the conclusion that the game was an entirely new form of Rummy. Most present-day Bridge writers and game authors erroneously credit a New York Bridge expert with the invention of Gin Rummy in 1909. The truth is that game-rule books describe a game called Gin Poker which is almost identical to the present Gin Rummy. Gin is readily available most days and, during season, on Thursday evening in the clubhouse.

Mah Jongg

Mah Jongg at Estero Country Club welcomes new players all season and play takes place Wednesdays and Fridays in our Ladies card room. Whether you have played before or never played, and want to learn, all are welcome. We play by the rules set by the National Mah Jongg League. This group focuses on fun first and loves to teach new members how to play. For more information about the game, please go to www.nationalmahjonggleague.org.
