The TwinEagles Club is a unique, private country club community that offers 36 holes of Championship Golf, a charming Scottish Manor designed Clubhouse featuring an outside dining verandah overlooking the Talon and Eagle golf courses, Two Har-Tru Tennis Courts, a state of the art Fitness Center, and a resort style Swimming Pool. TwinEagles is one of a kind providing three different membership categories to fit your lifestyle.
We are known for our sensational golf courses: the Talon Course was co-designed by Jack Nicklaus and his son Jack Nicklaus II. The Talon was home to the Ace Group Classic (now the Chubb Classic) from 2002-2006 and again from 2012-2018. The Eagle Course was designed by golf course architect, Steve Smyers and design associate Patrick Andrews. The Eagle course was host to the LPGA CME Group Titleholders Tournament in 2012 earning the 2012 “Best New U.S. Private Course of the Year” Award from Golf Magazine and the 2012 Design Excellence Award by the American Association of Golf Course Architects. Our members take pride that they enjoy golf on the same 36 holes that tour players have professionally played.
After golf, relax at one of our three dining locations: the Pub, Our Clubhouse Verandah overlooking the golf courses, or at the poolside Chickee Tiki which all feature a full-service dining experience. We have an active dining & social calendar that offers diverse and exciting events, including our Tiki Tuesday Member Mingler happy hours, dinner dances, educational nature lecture series, and so much more! Our Fitness Center offers cardio and strength equipment, as well as fitness programming and classes in the studio. Our tennis courts are available for day or night use, with a tennis professional to provide clinics and lessons for our members.

The Talon Course was designed by Jack Nicklaus and his son, Jack Nicklaus II. It was home to the Ace Group Classic (now the Chubb Classic) from 2002-2006 and again from 2012-2018. The Talon is constantly ranked as one of the finest courses in Florida featuring all the trademarks of Nicklaus golf including length, tricky approaches, and undulated greens. Bunkering and mounding also come into play. There are several sparkling lakes throughout its 7,193 yards along with tremendous amounts of wildlife that only being on the edge of a Florida Preserve can offer you.
The Eagle Course was designed by renowned architect Steve Smyers. Residents and pros alike love the Course’s thought provoking playing angles, optical challenges and gorgeous setting. As his inspiration for the Eagle, Smyers drew on historical designs created by classic course designers like Charles Blair Macdonald and Seth Raynor. Considered the Father of American Golf, Macdonald attended St. Andrews University in Scotland and played matches on the Old Course in the 1870’s. The connection to Macdonald was particularly fitting for Smyers, considering that The TwinEagles Clubhouse was originally designed to pay homage to St. Andrews and the highland manors of Scotland. Smyers and his design associate, Patrick Andrews consider the Eagle Course a true work of art that makes the most of a natural setting.

Chef William Vasseur
Chef “Billy V’ got his first taste of the country club lifestyle at the tender age of eight, retrieving golf balls at the driving range at a private golf course community on the outskirts of Worcester County, Massachusetts, where his father served as Treasurer of the board for over 25 years. Young Billy became a steady fixture in the club’s restaurant kitchen in between his driving range and cart barn duties. He eventually began “peeling potatoes” for the Executive Chef, Carl Lofgren, who late became his mentor. Billy went on to work at his mentor’s renowned restaurant, the Whistling Swan, in Sturbridge, Massachusetts throughout his high school years, learning the finer aspects of culinary arts and developed a passion which would form the foundation of his love of the kitchen!
Vasseur went on to Pennsylvania State University where he played Baritone Horn in the PSU marching Blue Band while majoring in Hotel, Restaurant & Institutional Management. He then specialized his culinary talent at Johnson & Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island.
