Golf In Naples Florida

Naples golf homes for sale

Naples is often referred to as “The Golf Capital of the World” and we have tons of golf communities.

Next to beach sunsets, there are few places where the natural beauty of Southwest Florida is more prominent than on many of its fine golf courses. Golf for many of our residents is an addiction!

Major designers, plus many professional player designers, have left their signatures on area courses, including Pete & P.B. Dye, Robert Trent Jones Sr. & Jr., Robert Van Hagge, Arthur Hills, Tom Fazio, Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Greg Norman, Gary Player, and many more.

Golf Membership

Hundreds of golf courses dot the landscape within Southwest Florida. A large majority of the golf courses are private country clubs, and prices vary for initiation fees and annual dues. Initiation fees are typically a one-time fee with dues payable on an annual or quarterly basis. They are often partial equity, indicating that the member would receive back part of their investment if they were to discontinue their membership.

Most golf communities offer some type of social membership, which generally entitles the member to full use of the dining, pool, tennis/recreational facilities, and use of the golf course during May through October by paying greens fees. There may also be limited use of the course during the winter months. A full golf membership generally includes all social membership privileges plus use of the golf course on a year-round basis with no greens fees. We offer a mix of public and private golf courses for every level of play.

Bundled Golf
Some residential country club communities feature bundled golf, which means that the home purchaser receives a full golf membership at a nominal initial/yearly fee as part of the purchase price of their home. Purchasers should evaluate the number of members at a potential club, as this will impact lead times in order to obtain tee times. For instance, some of the more prestigious clubs have a very small membership, to the point where tee times are not even required.

Reciprocal Golf
In the “off season” six months of the year, many of the private clubs participate in reciprocal agreements that allow members to play and dine at a selected list of other private clubs in the area, therefore, allowing their members to experience a magnificent variety of courses in the area. This is an especially appealing benefit for social members, because many stay in the area for all or most of the year.
