We were thoroughly impressed when we discovered the Southwest Florida gated community, the Renaissance. Centrally located in the heart of Lee County, near both Daniels Parkway and Interstate 75, the traditional country club is located on the posh corridor of South Fort Myers in one of the best Florida retirement cities. One of the lowest density Naples Florida golf course communities in the state, The Club at Renaissance won the title “Community of the Year” from the local home builders association and in 2004, Best Clubhouse by the Lee BIA.

Designed by world-famous architect Arthur Hills, The Club at Renaissance stretches for over 7,000 yards from the back tees. Arthur Hills is known for designing in Naples Florida golf course communities courses that are playable, but challenging, and which exhibit a keen sense of environmental responsibility. Life here naturally revolves around the golf course, where a limited number of optional private golf memberships (only 275) are available. This ensures that you’ll be able to use the golf course whenever you desire, that the country club environment is kept intimate, and that all provided services not only meet - but exceed - member expectations. A full membership provides unfettered access to all facilities including fitness equipment, golf with no green fees, swimming, and tennis. There are also a number of special "Golf Member Only" events such as the Club Championship Tournament, Golf Clinics, Ladies'Day, Men's Day, Nine & Dine, and Tournament Events. Private dining at the clubhouse offers the choice of casual dining outdoors at either the Turn House or terrace as well as indoors at the Grille Room. Formal dining is offered on selected weeknights and special occasions in the club's Rotunda Dining Room. Social club membership is mandatory. Golf club membership is optional and fees are approximately $7,300 per year plus a refundable deposit between $60k-$80k.
The Club at Renaissance is close to everything you need in one of the best Florida retirement cities.
