Who We Are

The last two years have been filled with excitement as we completed our golf course renovations! 

The Nest - as it is affectionately referred to by residents and members alike - is Southwest Florida's premiere private golf club.  Our golf courses are recognized as two of the finest in Florida and are recommended by experts and golfing aficionados.  Golf Digest writers hailed Pelican's Nest as their first choice of courses to play in Southwest Florida, and when you are located within one of the world's hottest golf markets, being deemed the region's best is no small honor.  With 36 newly renovated fantastic holes of golf, The Nest offers an ideal golf experience.
Our roots date back to 1985, when master golf architect Tom Fazio was invited to craft Pelican's Nest Golf Course.  The course was an immediate sensation, taking home multiple honors and was ranked as the "#3 Best Public Golf Course" in the United States by Golf Digest, giving Mr. Fazio his first appearance on the list of "Best New Courses".   Pelican’s Nest Golf Courses have been recognized every year since 2001 by Audubon International, with a Certificate of Achievement as a “Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary” a real testament of our membership to protect and enhance our environment. 

“Located south of Fort Myers in Bonita Springs and just inland from the Gulf of Mexico is Tom Fazio's gracefully designed Pelican's Nest Golf Club at Pelican Landing. It is a well-thought-out design, carved from a forest of live oaks and scrub pines on ideal sandy soil. There's nothing flashy about Pelican's Nest, it's just a natural-looking layout that encourages you to return and play it again and again." - Golf Digest

In addition to its commitment to golf excellence, we are committed to bettering the community by supporting Habitat for Humanity and The Bridge Fund charitable organizations.

If you wish to learn more about how you can be part of the Pelican's Nest Golf Club family, please give us a call.  We invite you to enjoy lunch or dinner, meet some of our members and see what makes Pelican's Nest Golf Club "home" for so many of Southwest Florida's residents.  


Pelican's Nest Golf Club is committed to investing in its Club facilities to provide the ultimate member experience with the best amenities. Nest Members voted and approved a $6.0 million project to add a cover to our outdoor casual dining venue, a new terrace bar, a new fine dining room and expand the grille room beginning April 2019, to be completed no later than December 1, 2019!
