At Estero Country Club, we take great pride in providing our members with the best service and amenities across the board.
If you’ve been paying attention, you’ve noticed two things about country clubs nationwide and those located in Southwest Florida:
The overall number of golf and country clubs throughout the country is declining
The best (and most popular) […]
Golf Course Restoration
Estero Country Club felt little to no impact from Tropical Storm Gordon. Other than ruining anyone’s outdoor barbeque plans the storm was mostly uneventful. We only received a total of an inch of rain and our new trees made it through unscathed. Grass growing continues to be the name of the game for […]
Golf Course Restoration
Through the first three weeks of August, we have recorded 7.5” of rain here at Estero Country Club. As the overall water table in Southwest Florida continues to rise, the golf course is beginning to get saturated. This is good news on the holes that we are still trying to grow grass on, […]
Our goal to have the golf course construction completed and all grass planted by July 31st has been achieved!
Sprigging crews installed the last of the Latitude 36 rough sprigs around the practice area on Tuesday morning. This is a big accomplishment and was necessary to keep the overall project on schedule. Although the entire course […]
The front 9 is coming together and we are on track to meet our grassing goals for the remaining holes. This past month has been a challenge as we are trying to grow grass, begin cultural practices on the back while also preparing the front 9 for grassing. By the end of the month we […]
It has been an extremely busy week on the golf course at Estero Country Club. As holes on the front nine are being finished and prepped for sod and sprigs, others are being shaped. Good news is grass is growing on the back 9. The project is certainly moving along quickly, and it is amazing […]
This week’s communication update includes “Fun Facts” about the scope in “numbers” of the work being done on the golf course and around the Clubhouse:
The Greens are planted with Tif-Eagle sprigs at a rate of 25 bushels per 1000ft2. After planting, irrigation is applied to the Greens at an average of 6-7 minutes every […]
After nearly two months of construction, the back 9 holes at Estero Country Club are starting to resemble a golf course again. During the restoration process we have celebrated certain milestones along the way. The construction start date, first greens shaping, initial grass being laid, and last Friday we mowed new grass for the first […]
As we started to experience last week with 2.5” of rain, we can definitely say the dry season has come to a screeching halt this week with an accumulated 8” of rain. Forecasters are keeping an eye on a low- pressure area in the Gulf of Mexico that has some potential for development as we […]
Southwest Florida is finally receiving some rain and we couldn’t be happier! As of Sunday, the club received 2.5” inches of rain which, helpfully, firmed the ground, allowing our contractors to better shape tees, bunkers and greens. We just hope we don’t get too much and have productivity wane.
We have been so lucky to have […]
