Collier’s Reserve Getting $13.8M Makeover
Collier’s Reserve Country Club in Naples will make golf course improvements as well as major renovations as part of a $13.8 million improvement plan approved last month by its members. The makeover of the beautiful private country club in the North Naples area will completely renovate the clubhouse and golf operations building, add a new boathouse with casual and outdoor dining, a new activities center and bocce and pickle ball courts. A friendly and informal lifestyle forms the backbone of Collier’s Reserve for an active and healthy lifestyle, and this makeover will enhance the member experience and remain fresh.
The country club lifestyle can be thoroughly enjoyed at Collier’s Reserve Country Club, a private golf community in Southwest Florida. Collier’s is comfortably located along Cocohatchee River in Naples and offers both resident and non-resident membership. Members can also enjoy reciprocal privileges at 30+ private clubs. In addition to the 18-hole championship golf course, amenities include lighted Har-Tru tennis courts, fitness center, yoga program, lap pool, and well-appointed golf and tennis shops. There are social events throughout the year, including annual galas, book clubs, card groups, museum field trips, and family-friendly events such as holiday parties and children’s camps during school vacations. In addition, members enjoy the unique Boathouse along the Cocohatchee River for a charming casual dining experience. There are also canoes and a fishing pier for members.
The club’s president of the Board of Governors, W. James Fischer, said he wants the Collier’s Reserve Country Club to be ahead of the curve in positioning itself for the future. He told Golf Course Industry magazine that he wants to “exceed the expectations of a changing member demographic.” Funds are included in the plan for future maintenance of the Arthur Hills-designed golf course, and replacing greens, tees, bunkers and cart paths. It is the first Audubon-sanctioned golf course in the United States and serves as a refuge for Florida’s native wildlife and subtropical surroundings. Construction will begin in April 2016 for the three-year renovation plan.
