Eagle Creek Golf & Country Club Amenities
Exclusive Golf Club
Eagle Creek has a reputation as one of the most exclusive clubs in Florida, and the history of the people behind it is equally impressive.
The development of the 300-acre property first began in 1981, but with a different name and ownership group. Since 1996, Eagle Creek has been a member-owned equity club.
The golf course, which of course is the main draw to living here, is a jewel of a layout, and was initially designed by Packard Design Group. But it was in 1982 that the project of finishing the construction of the golf course became the job of famed golf legend, Ken Venturi.
Venturi’s keen insight into course design resulted in a challenging and beautiful course surrounded by some of Florida’s most breathtaking cypress and palm trees, glistening lakes and scenic nature preserves.
There is a complete golf pro shop and PGA-Certified professionals on staff, plus a driving range and short game practice area.
Members here enjoy some of the finest food in southwest Florida in the luxurious clubhouse’s main dining room.
More casual fare can be found at the Grill Room with its distinctive bar and big screen televisions for enjoying the game with your golf friends. For outdoor dining, members can enjoy a beer and lunch at the new Crystal Lake Café, a covered, outdoor paradise offering a true Florida menu.
Pool & Spa
There is a large deck surrounding the sparkling, junior-Olympic sized swimming pool, the perfect spot for a swim and socializing after golf.
There is also a heated spa for relaxing after your workout in the fitness center and cardio room that overlooks serene Crystal Lake. The club holds several classes in yoga, Zumba, Pilates and more throughout the year.
