2013 Best Publication Award

Slightly cooler weather, friends returning from out of state, busier golf courses…it’s official, the season has returned here in beautiful Southwest Florida. As more and more people are returning to the freedom of traveling, the influx of golf rounds has continued to climb, and Florida continues to be a favorite golf destination for many travelers. This season will be no exception. Many of the area’s private and public clubs took the summer to complete course renovations and club expansions. We visit Quail Village in this issue’s cover story, who have renovated their golf course with new fairways, roughs, greens, and bunkers. Heritage Bay and Olde Hickory Country Clubs have also completed the renovations and expansions to their facilities as well. Bonita Fairways is under new ownership and management, and has upgraded their course, facility, and overall property. The Chubb Classic, held annually in Naples, has remained the longest-standing PGA TOUR Champions tournament that has been held in one urban region to date since its beginning in 1988. It is set to occur this February and we can’t wait to attend. Golf Locker is back, making it easier than ever for golf lovers to create a whole new look. They have all the top apparel and accessories, plus in-house embroidery, and free shipping on most items. As the summer is ending, and with many people already planning their holiday getaways, we hope Golf Coast Magazine will be your map to all that Southwest Florida has to offer for this upcoming season.

Quail Village Golf Club

One of Naples’ Best Golf Values is now NEWLY RENOVATED

Quail Village Golf Club has

always been one of our favorites. It has redefined the Naples golf market by offering all the luxuries of membership at an exceptional value. With its recent renovation, Quail Village is raising the standard for its Village. Quail Village has now finished the first phase of its renovation project. This phase involved an investment of $1.2 million which went towards an enormous improvement in the golf course, as well as new lifestyle amenities. The renovation was completed in the summer by Glase Golf, a local construction company GolfCoastMagazine.com

that has earned awards and accolades for its work with the top golf communities in Southwest Florida. The renovation has not left any section of the course untouched – the team re-grassed the entire course, installed new fairways, roughs, greens, rebuilt the bunkers, replaced the cart paths, improved the course drainage, and laserlevelled all tee areas. The upgrades further Quail Village’s reputation as one of the best maintained golf courses in Naples. The club has also invested in adding

new lifestyle features – adding two new Bocce Ball courts and engaging a new head chef, Julio Gomez, who has been thrilling members with delectable new dining options. They are also growing their team, by welcoming new Head Pro and Membership Director Mike McBroom. Quail Village has set out a roadmap to continue improving its course and community. The second phase of their enhancement project is slated for 2022. Upon approval it will involve a complete makeover of the clubhouse, a wellness center, and a

wide variety of new amenities for members to enjoy. “Quail Village has always offered a premier golf experience for our members,” commented John Lane, General Manager, “This investment will ensure that the course is in phenomenal condition for years to come, and further improves on the playability of our course.” Playability has long been a hallmark at Quail Village. The course was purposefully designed to be different. While most courses reward those of us who can hit longer

drives, Quail Village rewards ball placement, club selection, and strategic play. Water comes into play on 14 of the 18 holes, forcing players to make intelligent risk/reward decisions while playing. Players should expect to use every club in their bag – there are three par 5’s, nine par 4’s, and six par 3’s – no matter who you are, the course will test and challenge you. All this means that players of all ages can stay competitive, and it’s helped the club maintain a fast pace of play. Even foursomes playing in season will be able to finish their rounds in under four hours!

The members at the club have created a beautiful Village that welcomes newcomers. Through a wide range of events, Quail Village creates a space for connection and community among both neighbors and non-resident members.

“Quail Village represents everything I want out of a residential golf community: friendly neighbors, wonderful amenities, and extraordinary service.

is Setting the Standard for Bundled Communities A $10 Million Investment in Lifestyle Amenities Staying at the top is tough, especially

for golf communities in Naples. Heritage Bay has managed that feat – by continuing to invest in the future of its club. Heritage Bay has completed a $10 million enhancement of its facilities: - Enlarging the existing resort-style pool, adding a waterfall feature, a beach entry and more deck seating. - Expanding the pool cafe to satisfy the members’ want for more outdoor casual dining. - Providing an updated and expanded kitchen to be able to offer more menu options and accommodate the Club’s social calendar and wedding business. - Creating an indoor/al fresco bar with expanded seating at the Grille Room. - Updating the Grille Room with new designer furnishings and décor The renovation was completed by Humphrey Rosal Architects with a strong focus on GolfCoastMagazine.com

building vibrant community amenities. While the golf course has always been a draw, the new renovation turns the clubhouse into a resort destination. “One of the main draws to Heritage Bay has always been the extraordinary 27 holes of golf with conditions that are considered some of the best in Florida,” stated Michel Anderson, President of Heritage Bay’s Board of Directors. “When you add the host of improved amenities and our greatest asset, our warm and welcoming members, it is easy to understand why our Club is the heartbeat of our community.” No five-star Golf & Country Club would be complete without excellent dining. Led by Executive Chef Sergey Kashkin, the expanded casual dining options have been an enormous success. There are now options for poolside bites, smart casual dining in the Grille Room, as well as an improved event space for formal dinners. The outdoor Cabana has been expanded

into the perfect place to have a fun cocktail with neighbors while enjoying Florida’s beautiful weather! Heritage Bay is a bundled golf community, which means that every resident has a stake in all the amenities of the club. Golf membership is included with your home purchase, offering an extraordinary value. It also means that every community member is invested in maintaining a worldclass clubhouse and golf facility, which is why this renovation was approved by an overwhelming vote. The community now boasts an extraordinary set of amenities that make life wonderful inside a private community – there are 27 holes of championship golf, 7 Har-Tru tennis courts,

“Heritage Bay is a beautiful community with meticulous attention paid to our grounds and amenities,” commented General Manager/ COO, Matthew Renner. “At the Club, we have received overwhelmingly positive feedback on our newly expanded outdoor dining venues and resort style pool area, which have provided increased activity and enjoyment for our members and their guests. Our stunning new facilities provide our members an opportunity to relax by the pool and enjoy an exquisite al fresco meal accompanied by live music or to savor a dining experience with an unparalleled view from our elevated Grille Room terrace. We are thrilled to have enhanced the desire our members have to spend time together and enjoy their club.” Since 2006, the club has been developed with active adults in mind – providing them with a full suite of lifestyle choices that keep them returning to the club. That sense of community keeps members invested for the long term, and has been the cornerstone of Heritage Bay’s success.

Olde Hickory Completes Major Clubhouse Renovation

is the lowest density bundled community in Southwest Florida. That has always created an extraordinary experience for members – even those who play every day have no problem getting a tee time. Yet Olde Hickory was looking to do more! The Club just completed an investment off the golf course – expanding and improving the Clubhouse to build on the already unique Olde Hickory experience. The renovation touches on the entire facility – the Clubhouse has been expanded, the bar has been upgraded with eleven new large screen TVs, a new outdoor terrace has been built, there’s a new fire pit, and a new Grille Room in the Clubhouse. Outside the Clubhouse, the pickleball courts have been resurfaced and updates for the golf course have been planned for summer 2028. “Olde Hickory has completed an enormous GolfCoastMagazine.com

The Olde Hickory community was firmly behind the investment in the Clubhouse amenities. Membership is included with home ownership at Olde Hickory, so every homeowner is invested in improving the community amenities. The beautifully renovated space has helped to further grow home values and has helped the already close-knit community build even closer connections. “I love living at Olde Hickory because our community is large enough to have a variety of personalities and opportunities, but small enough to know many people and be part of a smaller family atmosphere. With only

561 residences, we can play golf as often as we want. Our newly expanded Clubhouse is beautiful, and the food is very good. We are blessed to live here.” – Pam & Bob, Olde Hickory Members It’s clear why Olde Hickory is among the top bundled communities in Southwest Florida. With this investment, Olde Hickory will continue to deliver on its commitment to deliver a premier golf and lifestyle experience.

5 Golf Tips to Strike Your Irons Better 1. Set up with good posture and balance, making sure your feet should be shoulder width apart. 2. Make sure to transfer your weight to the right on the backswing and then to your left on the downswing by rotating your hips and shoulders (opposite for left-handed golfer). 3. Keep your head still and keep your posture and balance through the impact zone. 4. Hands should be ahead of the ball at impact; you want to see a divot after the ball. 5. Point your chest to the target when you finish your swing and get up on your right toe (or left toe, for a left-handed golfer).

Meet Gyles Robin, Head Golf Pro Gyles was born and raised on the island of Jersey located in the Channel Islands, United Kingdom. Gyles learned to play golf at a young age at Royal Jersey Golf Club.

Finding the Best SWFL Golf Community for YOU!” By Joe Morgan-GOLF HOME GURU Like thousands of other people

from all around the world, you’ve decided that you want to live in one of Southwest Florida’s incredible golf communities. But with so many beautiful golf communities from which to choose, how do you determine the right one for you? Even if you’ve owned or rented here for a number of years, this can still be quite challenging…and a search process that should be fun and exciting can sometimes turn exhausting and over-whelming. The first step to finding your dream home in a SWFL golf community is to find the community that best Download the new

GOLF HOME GURU® iPhone/iPad App from the Apple App Store!

fits YOUR budget, golfing habits and ability, and family lifestyle. To do this, you need to answer the following questions… • BUDGET—In addition to the purchase price of the home, what annual costs are acceptable to you? Annual ownership expenses will consist of HOA/condo fees, golf/ social membership fees, real estate taxes, cart fees, and possibly special assessments and/or food & beverage minimums. After you total up the home’s annual costs, it then helps to estimate how much time you and your family will be at this home each year. Determine if you can justify this annual expense. If not, move on to a home and golf community that better fit your budget. • GOLFING HABITS & ABILITY—How much golf will you and your spouse play each week you’re at your SWFL home? Do you prefer to walk when you play golf? Do you

want to have your own golf cart? How tough a golf course can you handle? It’s essential to find a golf course that you and your spouse ENJOY. • FAMILY LIFESTYLE—What other community amenities and activities will you and your family use most…tennis; fitness center; resort pool; lap pool; pickle ball; bocce ball; spa; casual dining; formal dining? And, what non-community activities—ie beaches; shopping; movies; dining; etc.—are most important to you and your family? The second step is to then select the golf community “category” that best matches up with your answers to the above questions. SWFL essentially features three types of golf communities—public; private bundled; and private equity/non-equity—and each category has its own unique features and fee structures. • PUBLIC GOLF COMMUNITIES—These are housing developments that surround public golf courses. These communities typically have lower prices on single family homes and condos, and more affordable annual costs. They provide the opportunity to live in a golf environment, but without paying an initiation fee or annual golf fees…you simply pay-as-you-play each round of golf. They’re a great deal for individuals or families that aren’t going to be

in SWFL much of the year, and also for owners that don’t play much golf. These communities normally feature relatively-low HOA/condo fees, but most of them offer basic country club amenities such as pools, fitness centers, tennis, and limited dining. • PRIVATE BUNDLED GOLF COMMUNITIES—Purchasing a home in one of these communities gets you a full golf/social membership without having to pay an initiation fee. Their annual golf/social membership fees range from about $4,000-$7,000/year. This category is economically attractive to owners who are going to be in SWFL at least 3-4 months of the year and plan to play a lot of golf. These communities offer outstanding golf courses, a full array of amenities, and they constantly update their courses and facilities. GolfCoastMagazine.com

If they have any flaw, it’s their high golfer count…typically 799 golf members per 18-holes. • PRIVATE EQUITY/NONEQUITY GOLF COMMUNITIES—These communities require an upfront initiation fee for a golf membership, currently ranging from $12,000-$150,000. The median is around $50,000-$60,000, and there are a number of outstanding communities in this range. Only about 25% of the communities currently offer refunds when the golf membership is terminated, with refunds ranging from 10%-100%. Golf memberships are optional in some communities and mandatory in others, so make sure you know the requirements of the ones that you’re considering. Annual fees in these communities normally range from about $8,000-$12,000/year


HOMES

(roughly double the bundled golf communities). Lush landscaping, championship golf courses, elaborate and elegant facilities, and maximum amenities are common to this category…especially in the higherend communities. A big advantage of these communities is that they restrict their number of golf memberships to 300-400 per 18-holes, so it’s a lot easier to get on the course during the busy winter season.

EUROPEAN TOUR PROFESSIONAL JOOST LUITEN DESIGNS HIS OWN SIGNATURE LINE OF DUCA DEL COSMA GOLF SHOES Duca del Cosma brand ambassador and six-time Dutch Tour champion Joost Luiten collaborated with the company’s head designer, Baldovino Mattiazzo to co-design and produce two distinct signature Joost Luiten (JL) styles. Who better to collaborate with Mattiazzo than a professional golfer? Luiten knows first-hand the challenging demands of a European Tour season and their effects on body, particularly the feet. Last season, he tallied over 317 miles walking. “I was really surprised when Duca told me I walked more than half a million yards in tournaments last season, and that doesn’t include practice rounds or Pro-am events,” said Joost. “It shows just how important it is for me to have a pair of comfortable as well as functional shoes when I cover so much ground in different playing conditions across Tour events in Europe, the Middle East and South Africa.” The new signature Joost Luiten Collection from Duca del Cosma feature a soft Italian Nappa leather, the waterproof upper from the award-winning BELAIR model, an integrated waterproof sock system which keep feet

comfortable in the wettest of conditions combined with the new ELPASO sole, designed for traction and stability at impact. This exclusive hybrid style is available in two colorways: White/ Camouflage Green (JL1) and Black/White (JL2), with contrasting orange detailing and laces that match his Sunday color on Tour. “These new shoes in the Joost Luiten Collection are among the most comfortable golf shoes I’ve ever worn and I’m proud to be wearing attractive and comfortable Duca del Cosma shoes that are designed and made to such a high standard in Europe,” he added. The new signature Joost Luiten Collection from Duca del Cosma will be available this fall. For more information, please visit www.ducadelcosma.us.

Oyster Creek Golf Club S LUB AL LCABLE T N RE AVAI

Not your typical executive golf course, Oyster Creek, designed by Ted McAnlis, is both challenging and scenic. Accuracy off the tee is important as water comes into play on 13 of the 18 holes. Distance is critical on only a few of the par 4s, but even low-handicap golfers find they play to their handicap. Oyster Creek offers meticulouslymanicured greens surrounded by environmentally-protected natural wetlands. 6651 Oriole Blvd. Englewood, FL 34224 941-475-0334 www.oystercreekgolfclub.com
