Elegance Without Pretense
Located in beautiful Estero, Florida, West Bay Club is an exclusive golf and country club community bordered on the north by the Estero River, the east by Halfway Creek and the west by Estero Bay. Unusually intimate in scale, and with an exacting attention to details, West Bay Club exemplifies elegance without pretense.
West Bay Club’s native areas include magnificent stands of old growth cypress and oaks, wild orchids and bromeliads, exotic birds and butterflies, and more than 500 acres of untouched woodlands and wetlands that serve as a wildlife release point for the Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife(CROW).
Championship golf is the centerpiece of the West Bay Club community with a Pete and P.B. Dye designed, 18-hole par-72 golf course that includes breathtaking natural vistas and demanding shots to elevated greens. Twelve of the 18 holes include spectacular water features, and fairway landing areas on nearly every hole are well-defined by the glorious surrounding nature preserves. Threaded through wooded areas along Halfway Creek, the course has been designated for the fourth consecutive year as an Audubon Signature Sanctuary Course, given for environmental conservation, planning and outreach programs.

This gracious, 30,000+ square-foot facility is dramatically situated overlooking the spectacular 18th hole.
