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.
“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!
Golf at Estero Country Club
Golf is a cornerstone in our community. It’s an activity almost anyone can partake in. Golf is an exercise of both body and mind, emotionally as well as physically. At Estero Country Club, it is our pleasure to provide the best course in the area.
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.
We want to remain a safe place in southwest Florida. A community where people of all ages can come and enjoy the sunny outdoors. Whether you’re a member or a seasonal guest, you are always welcome here.
