Pelican Sound Golf and River Club

The calm serenity of nature permeates the master-planned gated golfing community of Pelican Sound Golf and River Club in Estero, featuring a dozen subdivisions with a variety of residential styles that fits your family: estate homes, executive homes, coach homes, carriage homes and condominiums. Developed by WCI Communities in 2003, Pelican Sound is located north of Bonita Springs in Estero at the corner of Corkscrew Road and U.S. 41.
A host of amenities begin with the centerpiece Pelican Sound Golf and River Club. Membership is for residents only. Golf begins with 27 holes of golf on a championship-designed course, which is also an Audubon-certified sanctuary. Every homeowner in Pelican Sound enjoys golf privileges. The course integrates many of the wetlands and woodlands found at Pelican Sound. The course features a driving range, practice facilities, golf schools and clinics.
In addition to golf, other amenities at Pelican Sound include a fully-staffed tennis center offering lessons, tennis clinics and team matches; 11 swimming pools; Country Club with casual and fine dining; pro-shop; River Club with dining; canoe launch; a members-only boat ramp with access to the Gulf of Mexico through the Estero River; a Clubhouse with fitness facilities and a variety of exercise classes; on-site boat storage; and a community water taxi which shuttles passengers to Lover’s Key State Park and the Gulf of Mexico beach. There is abundant fishing and shelling via the water taxi to the Gulf of Mexico and for families to explore one of the many little isles only accessible by boat. A Kayak Park is located on Pelican Sound at the River Club. Kayaks are available free of charge to members and their guests. The Estero River is part of the Calusa Blueway paddling trail and a left turn takes you to the backwaters where you can enjoy scenic wildlife in the area.
