One of Southwest Florida’s newest residential communities, The National Golf & Country Club at Ave Maria was officially opened in January 2021.
Ave Maria is a young town brought to life through the vision of Barron Collier Companies, and this upscale country club was developed by Lennar Homes, one of the country’s largest and most respected home building firms.
The 18-hole championship golf course was designed by noted architect Gordon Lewis, and offers players the perfect blend of challenge and enjoyment, with some of the area’s longest par 5 holes and also some of the shortest par 3 holes.
Located in eastern Collier County about 12 miles east of Interstate I-75 and less than 2 miles west of State Road 29 off Oil Well Road, Ave Maria is a self-sustained town that has received many awards and accolades since it was built.
The community was named Community of the Year for 2015 to 202, and one of the Top 35 Master Planned Communities in the country.
