Esplanade Golf & Country Club of Naples
Active-Lifestyle Community that Invigorates the Body, Mind & Spirit
Our team provided planning and design services for this landmark active-lifestyle master planned community. The Tuscan-themed design includes a comprehensive system of trails, incorporating more than 11 miles of trails made up of a five+ mile loop trail, fitness trails and wilderness trails. The program also incorporates sidewalks and linear parks into a network around the centralized resort-style amenity center. The amenity campus offers a blend of uses, including a culinary center, a learning center, a wellness facility with resort pool, poolside Bahama bar, golf and tennis pro shop, golf course, golf practice facility and aqua range, sports courts, dog park and multi-use event lawn. Careful consideration was taken during the preliminary golf routing, enabling the course to have a seamless flow through the community.
With more than 1,000 acres of land set aside for preservation, the opportunities to experience wildlife close at hand are abundant, with many trails taking users through preserves, bird habitats and extensive conservation lands. The incorporation of such an extensive trail network helped to enhance our client’s vision of reinventing the traditional golf course community into a place for active living and healthy environments.
