Shadow Wood Country Club is one of the most expansive communities in Estero and a member of the larger planned community called The Brooks.
It is an exclusive golf community, located on the border of Estero and Bonita Springs. These upscale homes are thoughtfully designed to preserve the natural landscape typical of Southwest Florida.
This luxury, gated community consists of 34 distinct neighborhoods spread across 350 acres. There are 85 different lakes and many fairways throughout Shadow Wood.
Residents of Shadow Wood can enjoy the amenities within their specific community, but also those shared by The Brooks communities, namely the Commons Club and Rookery restaurant.
Being a part of a larger planned community provides additional opportunities for socializing, enjoying the amenity offerings, or even just meeting new tennis partners!

Shadow Wood Country Club Amenities
Shadow Wood Country Club is a golf community, but not a bundled golf community, make sure you know the difference before you start house hunting!
There are three different golf courses available to members, but at a cost. The initiation fee for golf membership is $85,000. Yes, you read that right. Annual golf dues are an additional $12,000.
These fees are above and beyond the typical HOA fees that you pay to enjoy the pools, fitness center, landscaping, etc.
Sticker shock aside, if you are an avid golfer, this may be the place for you. The north course was opened in 2001 and later redesigned by Rees Jones in 2017.
The south course was opened in 1998 and redesigned (also by Rees Jones) in 2018. Finally, the Preserve Course was opened in 2003 and designed by Arthur Hills. There is a practice range available but no caddies.
Tennis, Bocce & Fitness
Aside from golf, Shadow Wood offers tennis, a world class fitness facility, bocce ball courts, and a hopping social calendar.
Throughout the year there are wine tasting, cooking demonstrations, a Super Bowl party and even a clam bake! There is sure to be something to keep everyone busy!
