Heritage Bay Ups Its Game With $10 Million Dollar Enhancement Project

NAPLES, FL – Heritage Bay Golf & Country Club, a private community situated on 718 acres in North Naples has embarked on a $10 million dollar project to enhance the experience for its members when dining and enjoying fun in the sun.

The Club, opened in 2006, has always maintained a reputation for pristine conditions throughout the community and on its three 9-hole Lewis/Azinger-designed courses which have received consistent praise from the USGA. With the completion of its enhancements in 2020, the Club will up its game off the course as well.

Heritage Bay Golf & Country Club partnered with Humphrey Rosel Architects, a local Naples firm specializing in the creations of designs both functional and emotionally inspiring. Their focus was to update and enhance the clubhouse pool complex and dining areas with the following renovations:

  • Enlarge the existing resort-style pool, adding a waterfall feature, a beach entry feature and more deck seating.
  • Expand the pool café to satisfy the members’ desire for more outdoor casual dining.
  • Provide updated and expanded kitchen facilities to offer more menu options to members and accommodate the Club’s robust social calendar and wedding business.
  • Create an indoor/outdoor bar with expanded seating in the clubhouse Grille Room.
  • Update and expand the Grille Room and equip with new designer furnishings and décor.

Beyond relaxing poolside and enjoying both indoor and outdoor casual dining, members at Heritage Bay have a wide variety of options to stay active and enjoy life within the confines of this private community.  In addition to the golf courses, the Club features a tennis and pickleball center, three new competition quality bocce ball courts, a state-of-the-art wellness center, six pools, billiards and more social activities than there are hours in which to participate.

“One of the main draws at Heritage Bay is 27 holes of golf with conditions that are some of the best in the Florida,” stated Michel Anderson, president of Heritage Bay’s Board of Directors. “When you add the host of amenities and our greatest asset, which is the warm, welcoming and inclusive nature of our membership, it’s easy to understand why our Club is the heartbeat of our community.”

The $10 million dollar enhancement project at Heritage Bay, scheduled for completion in December 2020, is a sure sign that Heritage Bay has upped its game for existing members and for those seeking a private, gated country club lifestyle. No doubt competitors in Naples will take notice.
