Lely Resort Golf & Country Club is one of Naples’ largest and earliest master-planned residential golf communities. It offers the true luxury resort lifestyle, just minutes from all the conveniences of the Naples community.
Ideally situated on 2,900 acres of lush native foliage, nature preserves and expansive lakes, Lely Resort Golf & Country Club is home to 3 pristine 18-hole championship golf courses, the centerpieces of this well-established residential enclave.
The resort’s main entrance is off U.S. 41, also called Tamiami Trail, about 20 minutes east of the heart of downtown Naples’ sophisticated 3rd Avenue South shopping and dining district. S.R. 951, which leads to Marco Island, borders the eastern edge of Lely Resort.
A Dutch inventor named Cornelius van der Lely purchased the land that was to become Lely Resort, along with land that is now home to Lely Golf Estates, Lely Barefoot Beach and Treviso Bay developments, in 1972. His ambitious vision led to the three golf courses being developed in 1990, 1991 and 1997.
The property was acquired by the Stock Development Company in 2001, and their expertise and track record of creating first class residential communities has propelled Lely Resort Golf & Country Club into a prominent role as one of the most desirable places to call home in all of Collier County.
