Within this amazing Wilderness Country Club community, championship golf is everywhere. Opened in 1973, and fully refurbished in 2004, The Wilderness Golf Course is world class; an 18-hole par 72 championship course designed by the renowned PGA professional and architect, Arthur Hills.
This golf course is considered by many as the premier golfing venue in Southwest Florida. At 6,652 yards from its championship tees, the course offers a complete examination of a player’s skills, from the opening tee shot to the deeply bunkered 18th green. The course exudes universal appeal with agreeable layouts and multiple tee placements, permitting each individual to play to his and her skill-level.
The Wilderness Golf Course is truly exceptional, integrating the natural environment throughout the entire layout…rolling lush fairways, flowering marshes, crystal-blue fresh water lakes, manicured greens, towering oak trees, pines, cypress and palm trees, sandy white bunkers, flowering natural vegetation and well-maintained tropical landscaping is intermingled amongst the lovely custom residences.
Experienced onsite PGA golf professionals and a teaching staff assist with improving the game of golf, and The Golf Shop is fully equipped with all of the latest sportswear trends and state-of-the-art golf equipment.
