The club is well known for its open arms, allowing visitors to walk right in and play a game. It’s located in a historic palm tree filled coastal setting and was recently renovated in a $5.8 million project. It is the perfect encapsulation of the golfing culture of Fort Myers.
Eagle Ridge Golf Course on Eagle Ridge Drive is arguably the total opposite of the Fort Myers Country Club. The challenges are intense and merciless. It is the perfect counter to the family-friendly adventures of putt-putt golf.
Bring some extra balls and the best equipment you have to best this water-filled course, with a little less green and a whole lot of blue.
