Golf Benefits of Buying a Home in Grey Oaks

Grey Oaks is the ideal place for golf lovers looking for a home in Florida. It’s centrally located, exceptionally beautiful, and ideal for people looking for a strong community. BoardRoom magazine, in partnership with Forbes Travel Guide, just announced that Grey Oaks Country Club once again earned the prestigious Distinguished Club Award, the “Hallmark of Excellence.” Read on to discover what makes this club so deserving of the accolades and recognition.

 

Location

Grey Oaks is centrally located in Naples, and it is approximately 10-15 minutes from Downtown Naples. At 1.8 square miles, Grey Oaks is a tight-knit community of 900 residences, comprising 775 single-family homes and 125 condominiums. It’s also only a 20-minute drive to Naples' pristine beaches. Miles of soft sand and clear waters make this area one of the best coastal communities Florida has to offer, and Grey Oaks’ prime location offers everything a person could want in a Naples lifestyle.

 

The Golf

Grey Oaks is the cream of the crop when it comes to golf experiences, as it’s the premier Country Club in Naples. It offers three championship golf courses totaling 54 holes of golf, so golfers can choose from The Pine, The Palm, and The Estuary. Each is immaculately maintained and surrounded by mirror-like lakes. 

The Pine course is a challenging tapestry of trees and lakes. Florida Trend Magazine named The Pine Course one of the “Top 5 Toughest Private Golf Courses in Florida,” as well as one of “Top 50 Most Distinctive Courses in the Southeast” by Golfweek Magazine. The Pine also won “Best of the Gulf Shore Golf Course” in Gulfshore Life Magazine

For a more tropical experience, there’s The Palm Course. This dramatic course features a rock waterfall, bulk-headed island greens, lagoons, and white sand beaches. It’s everything a Florida course should be. Lastly, the Estuary Course is an enchanting course, surrounded by pine, cypress, and oak trees to satisfy any golfer.

Grey Oaks has been named the “Florida Course of the Year” by the National Golf Course Owners Association, as well as a Top 35 Private Country Club. With so many accolades, it’s no surprise avid golfers flock to Grey Oaks. Every hole presents a uniquely challenging and rewarding golf experience. 

Another perk of a Grey Oaks membership? You’ll be able to play at several other impressive golf courses in the area and beyond.

 

The Club - Fitness

One of the most alluring aspects of this idyllic community is the country club. At 62,000 square feet, the country club is an impressive building in close proximity to some of the most luxurious homes in Naples. 

You can also make health a priority at the 30,000 square foot state-of-the-art Wellness Center. There are over 60 classes per week, and all of them represent the latest trends in group fitness. Choose from Barre, Zumba, yoga, water aerobics, and much more. The instructors focus on stamina, virality, flexibility, longevity, and — most importantly — fun! No matter where you are in your fitness journey, you’re guaranteed to find a class that will be fun, challenging, and very social. 

If you’d rather take your workout onto the courts, there are plenty of options. Explore the eight Har-Tru tennis courts, four pickleball courts, and four brand new bocce courts. Grab some friends, lace up your sneakers, and spend some time volleying. 

Need to cool off after an active day? Maybe you just want to escape for a while? Grey Oaks’ resort-style pool beckons! It’s a gorgeous pool, designed for swimmers and relaxers alike. There are plenty of lounge areas and shade covers for drying off after a dip. The pool is also family-friendly, so don’t worry about bringing kids — everyone can join in on the fun!

 

Dining

The Grey Oaks culinary experiences never cease to impress. Several exquisite dining venues line the club, including the Pool Café, the East Clubhouse, and the West Clubhouse.

The Pool Café is the ideal indoor and outdoor dining spot for friends and family. Sit around a fire pit and under a poolside cabana while you enjoy one of the menu’s many delicious craft cocktails. The lounge seating creates a laid-back atmosphere that’s perfect for a relaxed evening. 

The East Clubhouse is a beautiful place to enjoy some of the freshest food in the area. As will all of Grey Oaks’ food, an exceptionally well-trained team of chefs uses local ingredients to create memorable, seasonable menus. The East Clubhouse is located on a wooded rise, making for sunny lunch hours and fantastic sunset cocktails.

For a true “old country club” feel, head to the West Clubhouse. This wood-paneled venue acts as a “home away from home” for its members, who enjoy casual and al fresco dining in a convivial setting. The West Clubhouse overlooks the Estuary Course, making for sweeping views after a game of golf.

Grey Oaks also benefits from the unparalleled expertise of expert sommelier Victor Valdivia. He’s curated over 600 wines for Grey Oaks, and Gulfshore Life magazine ran a feature on him titled "Inside The Process Of Wine Expert Victor Valdivia.” To drink wine at Grey Oaks is to treat yourself to a curated, memorable experience.

 

Entertainment

There’s never a dull moment at Grey Oaks, which is one of the characteristics solidifying the club as one of Florida’s best retirement communities. The community hosts golf tournaments, cooking classes, art shows, fundraising events, themed parties, and more. From dancers to foodies to fitness lovers, there’s an activity and event for you.
