The Club

Coral Creek Club features a world class Tom Fazio designed golf course that is currently ranked as #17 in the State of Florida by Golf Digest. Coral Creek is the only golf course in the Boca Grande/Cape Haze area as well as in all of Charlotte, Lee and Sarasota counties ranked in the top 30. Mr. Fazio has designed Coral Creek in a core configuration with the limited residences on the perimeter of the golf course. Bordered by picturesque Coral Creek, a salt-water estuary flowing to the Gulf of Mexico and a 6,000-acre nature preserve, Coral Creek Club provides for a very special, private golf experience.

The impeccably maintained, 211-acre golf course rolls gently through southern pines, oaks and palms around deep blue lakes and picturesque, high flashing bunkers that guard emerald greens.  Coral Creek Club offers water views over the mangroves on several golf holes, views that make the golf experience at Coral Creek unique among the best golf courses in Florida.

Captivating landscape and inspiring wildlife surround members and their guests at Coral Creek Club.  Reflecting the natural beauty of the environment, the masterful Tom Fazio design creates a harmonious transition from Mother Nature to golf course.  With the thoughtful location of five sets of tees, the peaceful and serene setting presents an inviting challenge that can be enjoyed by players of all skill levels.
