Our roots date back to 1985, when master golf architect Tom Fazio was invited, to craft Pelican’s Nest Golf Course. The course was an immediate sensation, taking home multiple honors and was ranked as the “#3 Best Public Golf Course” in the United States by Golf Digest, giving Mr. Fazio his first appearance on the list of “Best New Courses”. Pelican’s Nest Golf Courses were recognized every year since 2001 by Audubon International, with a Certificate of Achievement as a “Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary” a real testament of the membership to protect and enhance our environment.
“Located south of Fort Myers in Bonita Springs and just inland from the Gulf of Mexico is Tom Fazio’s gracefully designed Pelican’s Nest Golf Club at Pelican Landing. It is a well-thought-out design, carved from a forest of live oaks and scrub pines on ideal sandy soil. There’s nothing flashy about Pelican’s Nest, it’s just a natural-looking layout that encourages you to return and play it again and again.”
