Either choice is the right one.
East is an enjoyable test of talent, administered by the legendary Arthur Hills. Long meandering fairways, gentle rolling hills and a beautifully walkable layout transport you all the way to the Carolinas, without ever leaving the best golf course in Naples.
West is a playable treasure hunt. A paradise of pitfalls weaves through a pristine Florida landscape, where pure, smooth greens are an enticing and worthy reward – just clear of the dog-legs, water hazards, and sandy sentries that oppose eagles and birdies.
Two completely different courses.
One completely different membership.
Members here prioritize fun – the joy of golf, the celebration of experience, and the rewards of camaraderie – on and off the course. Academics, Adventurers, Aficionados and Artists – your passions find you here. But there’s only one clique: friendly, informal, diverse and welcoming to all.
A casually-elegant clubhouse regularly plays host to an active and stimulating group of people who appreciate trivia nights and tribute bands as much as tee times. This is also where members come together to enjoy delightful coastal cuisine, a spirited cocktail culture, and casual conversation.
Imperial Golf Club is a local destination where members go to truly live, regardless of where they reside. For over four decades, we’ve prioritized the depth of our member experience over the breadth of our square footage – to create a club that is truly beyond measure.
Imperial is considered a favorite among local golf professionals and is featured in the Naples “Dream 18” list of the best golf holes in all of southwest Florida. Both courses are impeccably maintained year-round, and eminently playable for social and competitive players. Our low membership cap and unique golf culture ensure play is easy and enjoyable for all.
New members are often surprised to realize they are more social, happy and healthy than they would have ever thought possible – while still enjoying the freedom to truly be themselves. Through shared interests and experiences, members here make having fun a priority.
Membership at Imperial delivers more for less – with one of the lowest total costs of membership in the Naples area. That’s because we focus our resources on providing an unrivaled golf membership experience – without adding unnecessary amenities or uncertain capital risks associated with most country clubs.

The core of Imperial Golf Club is an enjoyable private golf experience. We celebrate the simplicity, heritage and values of the game within a fun and friendly club atmosphere. Our two completely different 18-hole courses are both easily walkable, eminently playable and extraordinarily maintained year-round to a level consistent with the nation’s top-rated courses.
Our unique golf culture fits competitive and social players alike. Ease in quickly with plenty of games at all skill levels – no player is ever left behind here. Personalized golf instruction programs inspire constant improvement, and Imperial is the area’s only club that encourages and celebrates one of golf’s most significant challenges – shooting your age. We are also home to one of the largest women’s golfing groups in southwest Florida.
While we honor the traditions of the game, we also use innovation to enhance the golf experience. Our state-of-the-art tee-time system ensures easy and equitable access for all members, and our on-course positioning systems keep pace-of-play to a brisk 4 hours or less. We’ve even developed our own “Imperial Nano” greens grass which is taking the golf industry by storm.
Imperial attracts a diverse and friendly group of male and female members, both couples and singles. From the very first day and the very first round, members are invited to enjoy a full slate of equally strong groups, events, and activities. We go out of our way to embrace the needs and interests of all members, even if golf isn’t a priority. Our renowned “Girlfriends’ Group” perfectly illustrates how open and welcoming the Imperial social environment is, with over 300 female members, golfers and non-golfers alike, that regularly take part in organized events and activities at the club and around the Naples community.
Our clubhouse is constructed of camaraderie. Even though nearly three-quarters of our members reside outside our immediate community, the club bursts with a variety of lively events and can’t-miss social activities which fill up routinely.
Imperial’s casual atmosphere is a welcome respite from trendy local restaurants. Our culinary team emphasizes locally sourced produce and seafood as part of our dedication to providing the freshest, most delectable dining choices, and supporting a healthy lifestyle.
The culture of the club naturally attracts a convivial staff of service professionals who are full of personality and eager to delight our members and guests. Our unique brand of intuitive, personalized service is embodied by our family of hospitality professionals who will remember your name and your drink of choice after just one order.
