About the Club

The Hole-In-The-Wall Golf Club was established in 1957 for members who appreciated the traditions of the game of golf and enjoyed each other’s company.  This deep seated tradition continues today.  The name, Hole-In-The-Wall, was derived because the property was the northern section of the Hole In The Wall Ranch. At the end of the nineteenth century, before the Tamiami Trail was even thought about, there were two separate areas of settlements in Naples.  One was east of the Gulf Coast strip from Gordon Pass and the other was east of Naples Bay and Cypress Swamp. 

This swamp prevented direct land traffic between the two settlements and became known as the "Wall". To overcome this barrier, early settlers cut a rough road through the swamp which became known as the "Hole In The Wall".

The current clubhouse was completed in 2007, and while it copies many of the features of the original clubhouse and partially rests on the original footprint, the facilities have been modernized and there is more space provided for locker rooms, dining areas and a bar.  About the same time, under the direction of Ron Forse, the original Dick Wilson golf course was also renovated.  Many new ponds were created, non-native plantings removed, a new sprinkler system installed and the entire course raised up and regrassed.  The fairways are now Celebration and the new greens (installed in 2014) are TifEagle bermuda grass.

One of the most attractive aspects of the Hole-in-the-Wall Golf Club is the natural environment that surrounds the golf course and the absence of residential development so common to many other clubs in the Naples area. This property is truly a unique setting for the game of golf where members and their guests enjoy the sights and sounds of South Florida wildlife and nature.  With almost fifty acres of wetland preserves dedicated to conservation easement, the club's property is assured in perpetuity to be home to some of the most fascinating wildlife, sub‑tropical flora and fauna found in nature.   The Club is a fully certified member of the Audubon Co-operative Sanctuary System having gained this status in the 1990’s.  The Club’s Wildlife Fund supports this important feature.
