The Country Club of Naples

“Where members become friends”





Situated on 160 acres in the heart of Naples, The Country Club of Naples (CCN) continues its legacy as one of the most esteemed private, member-owned country clubs in southwest Florida. Nestled just minutes from Old Naples, Park Shore, and the Pelican Bay neighborhoods, CCN is centrally located, tucked away off Solana and Goodlette Frank Roads, approximately two miles from the Gulf of Mexico. What distinguishes it from other area country clubs is the absence of residential real estate associated with the Club, as well as the walkability of the course, with no restrictions on walking at any time of the day. On any given day, walkers account for 40-50% of the rounds.




In celebration of its 50th anniversary in 2016, CCN invested $7.6 million in renovating its clubhouse. Today, the clubhouse stands as a testament to relaxed sophistication, featuring expanded outdoor veranda dining, a casual tavern for lunch and dinner, as well as a spacious main dining room with panoramic views of the golf course.


CCN Members continue to relish an exceptional golf experience, with the golf course undergoing an $8 million restoration project by renowned course architect Drew Rogers in 2023. Originally designed by Bill Diddel in 1962, the new project respected his original old Florida design while selectively enhancing architectural elements and playability. Additionally, the golf practice area has undergone over $1 million in upgrades.


Offering a choice of five sets of tees and three combo-tee sets, CCN ensures that golfers of all skill levels, from low handicappers to casual golfers, can enjoy challenging yet enjoyable rounds. With an average of only 330 golf memberships, tee time availability is never an issue. The highly engaged Ladies Golf Association offers chances for players of various skill levels to come together and enjoy rounds, be it for 9 or 18 holes. Additionally, more than 40% of golf rounds are played by women.



CCN has a rich history of hosting prestigious USGA events, scheduling them exclusively in the off-season. Over the years, the Club has hosted the Florida Senior Amateur Championship, two national USGA events, and the Sectional Qualifiers for both the U.S. Amateur Championship and the U.S. Junior Amateur Championships. The Country Club of Naples also proudly hosted the Local Qualifying round for the 112th U.S. Open Championship.



Expanding its recreational offerings, CCN now features newly built pickleball courts and a dynamic pickleball program led by Coach Andi Chatis. Members and their guests can enjoy games for players of all abilities, as well as weekly clinics. Tennis enthusiasts can also indulge in playing on one of the Club’s two Har-Tru courts.


Beyond its sports amenities, The Country Club of Naples is celebrated for its welcoming spirit of camaraderie and outstanding social activities. Embodying the ethos of “Where Members Become Friends,” the vibrant schedule is replete with specialty wine dinners, themed movie nights with dinner, book clubs, trivia nights, seafood nights, concerts, and much more. The Club offers a premier casual dining experience, with occasional fine-dining, led by Executive Chef Miguel Tellez-Garcia and his culinary team, with dining offered up to five nights a week.


Laurie Mellor, the Membership & Marketing Director, reflects on CCN’s unique charm, “Given our more modest size compared to numerous country clubs in the Naples area, our charming and intimate club environment provides an ideal setting for developing new friendships. Our members are extremely welcoming and unassuming. I urge those seeking a country club to consider us. CCN is truly a hidden gem in Naples.”
