Southwest Florida golf communities range from bundled to private. This page is your best guide on some of the best Florida golf communities with private golf clubs and you can also find detailed information on new golf communities in Naples Florida. These private golf courses are lined with some of the finest real estate in the area. There are two types of private golf communities in Southwest Florida. For starters, mandatory golf equity requires you to purchase a separate golf membership in addition to the real estate so that association is exclusively limited to residents, including the amenities offered by the golf club. Another option is the golf equity club within a community that allows you to enjoy all the fairways and lakes, but the club is separate from the real estate and membership is optional. These Naples Florida golf communities and clubs offer golf memberships to both residents and non-residents alike, and are usually limited to 350 members.

Many communities allow non-members from other nearby communities to play on a reciprocal basis. Not all residents become private golf club members. Not all private golf clubs in Naples are real estate driven, but most are.

The Naples area boasts more golf courses per square mile than anywhere else in the United States. It ranks as the first or second in national golf holes per capita according to the National Golf Foundation. Collier County has close to ninety golf courses

Real estate in a golf community may be attached to the private golf club, but the amenities that surround that community are usually available to you, making them essentially semi-private. Sometimes, if there are two golf courses, one of them may have a private clubhouse for members only while the other course may be available for play to residents and guests. Private golf course communities tend to have some of the best and most luxurious amenities available to residents, and can include exclusive concierge service and much more.
