Club History

The Naples Grande golf tradition traces its origins to the vision of noted golf architect Rees Jones, who is well-known for his design and remodeling of many significant golf courses, including Baltusrol Golf Club in New Jersey, site of seven U.S. Open championships, the Congressional Country Club in Maryland, and the renowned Pinehurst #2, North Carolina. Jones was named “Architect of the Year” by Golf World magazine in 1995 and is consistently ranked among the top five golf course architects by Golf Digest.

At Naples Grande, Jones has carefully preserved the integrity of the landscape - its native cypress trees, live oaks and pines - to offer the golfer a rare aesthetic as well as rigorous play. With no homes directly on the golf course, panoramic vistas of indigenous pine hammocks and a meandering water feature showcase a natural character that is as rare as it is exhilarating.
