Back in the Swing of Things

“After a storm comes a calm.” — Matthew Henry

It’s so wonderful to get back into the swing of the things post-Irma. This time last month was a whirlwind of restoration, planning, and a few uncertainties. Today Estero Country Club is already seeing incredible changes and a bright future.

As we enter the holiday season, our team is thankful for everything we’ve accomplished this year and how, put to the test, we bounced back seamlessly. We are ready to welcome November and December with open arms!

While we’re still a work in progress after the storm, it’s been wonderful to see our members back on the courts and courses for our scheduled activities.

This month has been slower for events after the effects of the storm, but recently players donned their proverbial lederhosen for a day on the tennis courts! Our Oktoberfest Tennis Mixer celebrated both Oktoberfest and the end of our summer season. It was such a joy to see great swings, swigs, and laughs back out on the court!

We will be back to our regularly scheduled events in November and we cannot wait to dig into all of our big plans!

This month, members will be able to enjoy a social calendar full of fun, friends, and food!

Is your favorite seasonal activity coming back to Estero Country Club? Check out our busy calendar of November events:

The pumpkin and Fall leaves are all around us—in decoration of course! Soon, they will be replaced with tiny santas, snowmen, and the only snowflakes southwest Florida will ever see, decorated ones!

We cannot way to dive into the holiday season! This year, more than ever, southwest Florida will count its blessings and rejoice among family and friends.

We’d like to thank the hundreds of people who shared their support after the storm, helped us get back on our feet, and our incredible members for being so patient, supportive, and generous to one another.

This hurricane season was a doozy but it’s over! Now it’s time to focus on what really matters; family, friends, and love! What better place to spend the holidays?

Our golf course and tennis courts may have sustained some heavy rains and winds but they are back up and running! Our tennis courts are fully operational and ready for the swing of the season! Our course had more of a rough patch but our dedicated team has been working tirelessly to restore our gorgeous golf course back to its pristine nature!

We hope to see you at Estero Country Club’s holiday events, mixers, and friendly competitions! Stay up-to-date on events through our Facebook page!

The Road to Recovery Post-Irma

Administrator : September 21, 2017 11:45 am : Blog

Southwest Florida has had a rough couple of weeks. Before hammering the Gulf Coast, Hurricane Irma left a path of destruction in the Caribbean Islands, the Florida Keys, before slamming our beloved home. While the aftermath was severe, it didn’t reach its initial catastrophic prediction.

That being said, we still have a lot of work today.

Southwest Florida brings so many visitors from near and far. Its natural beauty is what made Irma so devastating. Walking outside to a pile of branches, trees, and water was traumatic. While the beauty of southwest Florida is not destroyed, it has been altered.

As the days pass and become weeks, our teamwork is what will keep us afloat. Estero Country Club has been fortunate to have such a supportive and dedicated staff. We’d like to take a moment to everyone that gave their blood, sweat, and tears to our Club these past few days. It wasn’t just the sacrifice of hard work, it was the time spent away from family and friends. Our team has shouldered the responsibility of the club along with their own. We cannot thank you all enough. Without their hard work, Estero Country Club would still look a lot different.

Thanks to the hard work from our team members, Estero Country Club is thankfully on its way towards recovery. It will take some time to restore our pre-Irma conditions but rest assured, we are on the right track!

The Club had its power restored on the afternoon of Saturday, September 16th. We had never been happier to see our fluorescent lighting! The return of our power has enabled us to make wonderful progress in our cleanup and restoration of services to both the Club and our homes.

We encourage our members to reach out to us if they need anything. We are, above all, a community. God knows, it takes a Village!

The Road to Recovery

While we have sustained damage to our course, we are on the mend! We’re asking members and guests to please stay off the golf course while we clean up. It is still not safe as collateral damage to turf and cart path areas can be expected during tree removal and cleanup. Cart path damage occurred as a result of up-rooted trees on holes 1, 2, 10, 11, 14, 15, 16 and 18, so carts are also forbidden for the time being.

Moving forward you can rest assured that we are doing everything we can to get back on our feet so we can focus on helping the community. We are blessed to be safe, sound, and whole. Things can be replaced; people cannot. Thank you for all of your well-wishes, thoughts, and prayers.

Now, let’s get to work southwest Florida!

Village with a Vision

Administrator : August 22, 2017 11:24 am : Blog

Planning for the Future

It’s hard to believe that it’s only been two years since the Village of Estero was born. On March 17th, 2015 the Village of Estero became Southwest Florida’s ninth municipality.

Estero is still one of the fastest growing areas in southwest Florida. Propelled by Florida Gulf Coast University, Fortune 500 companies like Hertz, and the fun of Fort Myers alongside the relaxation of Naples, Estero is in perfect position to grow.

One of the area’s most defining factors is it’s youth compared to it’s city neighbors Naples, Fort Myers, and Bonita Springs. 65% of all Estero housing units are less than 13 years old and about 80% of all Estero commercial properties are under 10 years of age, according to the feasibility study. The youth of Estero is attracting young couples who are just starting their family, and growing families that are looking for a new place to call home.

It’s no wonder that people are flocking to Estero to take their own slice of paradise.

Today, the Village of Estero is putting their best foot forward, gathering their plans, and paving the way towards their vision that blends history with the future. According to the Village;

“Our current adopted vision for Estero is to establish a community that embraces its historic heritage and protects the environment while carefully planning for future development, offering a high quality of life, expanding economic opportunities, and proximity to Florida Gulf Coast University and the Southwest Florida International Airport.”

Estero’s growth will have several cornerstones to ensure success, including; neighborhoods, diverse economic generators, interconnected mixed-use centers, varied parks, public spaces, recreational facilities, and unique natural environments.

Like the city itself, the blend of old and new will bring residents together to foster a strong community that values history without ignoring the future.

Estero will have high development standards and design guidelines to promote:

  1. Desirable neighborhoods and public amenities
  2. Vibrant economic centers
  3. Attractive landscaping, streetscaping, lighting, signage, and architectural features
  4. An interconnected transportation network

Have an idea? Make your voice heard and have a hand in building the Village of Estero. Visit their website to attend or watch meetings, contact Legislative Officials, check permit statuses, download documents and much more.

Stay involved! This is our city, after all!

A Village with a Vision

The Village of Estero will only be as good as its residents. That’s why we are giving residents, members, and guests a first impression that will last a lifetime.

In southwest Florida, Estero Country Club is “home” in every sense of the word. It’s not just about the house, it’s about the community. We are giving members and guests the tools, events, and friendly competition needed to build strong friendships, golfing buddies, and close-knit group of members.

In fact, we already have tournaments planned! Don your spookiest gear and scare away the competition during our Halloween Havoc, October 30th. If you’re looking for all the game without the costume, then join us for our 3 Club Challenge, November 10th. Last, but certainly not least, December 9th is our Mixed Shoot-Out! The competition is plenty at Estero Country Club!

If you’re not swayed by sports and competition, then perhaps our social events can tempt you.

Friday, October 27, 2017 is our annual Halloween Party. Costumes are optional, but having fun is not! You can even help us give thanks at our Thanksgiving Buffet, Thursday November 23, 2017.

You can also celebrate the most wonderful time of the year with us at our Christmas Ball, Friday, December 8, 2017. If that’s not enough, spend the morning with Santa at our Holiday Breakfast Buffet on December 10, 2017 with, yes, the man in red himself, Santa Claus!

“The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear!” Spread some joy and join us for our Christmas Carolers, December 15, 2017, and don’t forget to ring in the New Year with us on December 31, 2017.

We are helping residents find their niche in southwest Florida! Between sporting events and social occasions, rest up, cause your calendar is going to be full!

Measuring Green Speeds

Administrator : May 26, 2017 1:49 pm : Blog

“Why were the greens fast yesterday and slower today?”

Virtually every superintendent in the world hears this question on a weekly basis. The truth is there is no one answer to this question. Green speeds vary depending on many different factors such as nutrient input, insect and disease pressure, height of cut, rates of growth regulators applied and in my opinion, most importantly, moisture levels.

As Superintendents, we can pretty much control or keep in check most of these factors but when it comes to moisture we are at the mercy of Mother Nature.

Now don’t get me wrong, controlling moisture levels was not a daunting task during the past 4 months of no rain. However, as we come closer to our typical summertime rain pattern here in Southwest Florida, maintaining the desired amount of moisture in the soil profile of the greens becomes more and more of a challenge.

This is not a new concept. I’m sure most of you have heard television commentators talk about the golf course softening up and the greens slowing down from the rain the night before as the Pros are able to take aim at the pins and birdie becomes a more common score. As the Superintendent, it’s my primary goal to provide consistent green speeds on a daily basis. We don’t want to experience ups and downs throughout the week and managing moisture is a major part of that.

One of the most important tools that we use to achieve consistent green speeds are portable moisture meters. These meters measure the volumetric water content of the soil. In other words, they tell us how wet the soil is and provide us with a benchmark that lets us know when we need to add water to them.

By using these tools, we can pin point exact locations on the greens that require water and simply use our hose to provide the water rather than running the sprinklers on the entire green and ultimately affecting the green speed.

At Estero Country Club, hard work, the appropriate tools, and some good ol’ fashioned sunshine makes it a little easier to be green!

Estero Country Club Teeing Off for Golf Course Refurbishment

Administrator : February 17, 2017 10:26 am : Blog

First it was Naples Grande, then it was Mediterra, and now it’s Estero County Club’s turn! Golf courses across southwest Florida have been given some pretty incredible makeovers. One of the largest projects was Naples Grande, a complete course redesign that included the involvement of famed golfer Jack Nicklaus.

Estero Country Club is excited to announce that our very own golf course will be receiving a restoration that is set to start during the summer months of 2018.

Award-winning golf course designer, Gordon Lewis will return to Estero Country Club at the Vines to be part of the restoration process. Currently playing at 7,072 yards from its championship tees, our par 72 course sits on 105 lush acres surrounded by 38 acres of sparkling lakes.

Our course features seven sets of tees to challenge the skills of players at every level. Members and guests can enjoy an outstanding practice range, as well as large putting and chipping greens.

The golf course restoration  will bring Estero Country Club to the next level with the latest golf course amenities and continue to challenge southwest Florida residents and visitors.

Who’s Involved

“If you’ve never played a course designed by architects such as John Sanford, Mike Dasher, Gordon Lewis, Gary Koch and Bill Amick, you haven’t fully experienced great Florida golf.” says Ed Schmidt on Golf Advisor.

Gordon Lewis, a veteran golf-course architect in Naples, says most of his work today is restoration on existing courses. We were lucky to have such an esteemed name attached to our golf course in the beginning and we count our blessings to have him return for regrassing the fairways and redoing the greens.

Estero Country Club’s golf course is timeless, according to Gordon Lewis, and we couldn’t agree more. We are looking forward to sprucing up the greens for our members and guests.

Gordon Lewis has made his name, creating complex, gorgeous courses that challenge and inspire even the most seasoned golfer. We can’t wait to see the finished product!

Estero, Florida, after all, has undergone dramatic shifts in the past thirty years. What was once a sleepy area on the Gulf of Mexico has emerged at the forefront of a technology and business boom. More and more families are settling in and digging their roots in southwest Florida. Additionally, many people are choosing Estero, Florida and southwest Florida to enjoy their retirement. This delicate blend of individuals makes for a compassionate community that is, and always has been, built on kindness.
