THE GOG BLOG by RORY SPEARS, Director of Content And Creation for Golfers on Golf. Follow Rory on Twitter @GogBlogGuy. With Alan Pope Director of Membership for the Coral Creek Club in Placida Florida.


THE CORAL CREEK CLUB in Placida Florida, is one of Southwest Florida’s premier private clubs.

But right now there are memberships available. So if you want to learn more, stay clicked-in right here. But another option is to visit the clubs website, and listen to the introduction by Jim Nantz.

The Coral Creek Club located near Gasparilla Island and the Village of Boca Grande, opened in 2000. So when the club’s front gates open, you drive into 211 acres of a beautiful preserve that’s full of wildlife and of course, golf. But more recently the Tom Fazio designed 18-hole layout, has had Fazio back for a tune-up. The end result is that the club has never looked better, and the views from the private jets arriving to the private airport right next store are pretty good as well.

The Coral Creek Club renovation work, was mostly completed during the pandemic while golf courses were closed, or open with serious restrictions. So not to affect large amounts of member play.

That project which was completed in less than nine months, has taken the course to an even higher level of perfection.

Because a tour of the golf course, or playing all 18 holes, will show you what a quality golf course looks like. It’s not often golfers are treated to a course, where the greens look like nobody has played on them in months. Tee boxes are not full of divots or sand-mix. The white sand bunkers are all perfectly raked, and upon approach not a grain of sand appears out of place. But then when you add the palm trees, the full feel of Florida golf at it’s finest, hits home as you tour all 18 holes.

CLICK HERE TO HEAR THE INTERVIEW with Erin Stevens, CGCS, MG Golf Course Superintendent, on the Coral Creek Club’s renovation of the Tom Fazio designed golf course.

Welcome to the Coral Creek Club, your on the first hole. Play away.

Coral Creek has made recent management changes, and the membership is excited about the staff that is now part of the club.

The membership ranks come from a wide range of professional people.

They also include one SEC football coach with hand full of national championship rings, and a PGA Tour player who recently added a green jacket to his closet.

So if your looking for an upgrade in the type of club facility you belong to. Why not explore the elegant Coral Creek Club, with a pristine Tom Fazio designed course. Because Coral Creek will challenge your game during every round you play. Because if you are thinking retirement in Florida, or are just spending the cold northern winters down south in Florida. The Coral Creek Club might be the club for you.

Course yardage tops out at over 7,000 yards and a par of 71. But there are six sets of tee’s so golfers of all skill levels can enjoy their round. So learn more about Coral Creek by visiting CoralCreekClub.com or call the club at (941)-697-1683.
