This is a unique golfer’s club with two extraordinary 18-hole courses designed by the “Best Modern Day Golf Course Architect,” Tom Fazio, and considered to be one of his most superb efforts. Golf Digest considers The Nest their first choice to play in Southwest Florida. Both have a reputation of being playable virtually every day of the year, although there’s a lively debate to which course is the favorite.
We can say with certainty you’ll play through incredible Florida landscapes featuring wetland marshes, live oaks and mangrove thickets. Considered among the most compelling and visually stunning courses in the region, every round here inspires frequent deep breaths on course that take full advantage of natural water hazards, lush landscapes, and tree-lined fairways generously buffering the outside world.
This is also a club where exceptional golf doesn’t always have to be played seriously. Members of all skill levels are welcomed and encouraged by a culture defined by competitive yet incredibly friendly play, supported by a staff of professionals dedicated to ensuring each round is equally enjoyable and rewarding. During our recent renovations the addition of scoring tees allows golfers of all abilities an equal playing field.
