What do Eagle Creek golf members have in common with the world’s greatest golfers? They both play a golf course designed by the same notable architect. Innisbrook Resort’s famed Copperhead Course, home of the PGA Valspar Championship, was designed by renowned golf course architect Larry Packard. Eagle Creek’s golf course shares the same designer and features many of his signature design traits.

“We are the only golf course in Southwest Florida to be originally designed by Larry Packard,” states Jimmy Alston, golf course superintendent at Eagle Creek. “Larry Packard is the father of the double dog-leg par 5. He incorporated this feature in many of his designs, including #14 at Copperhead. Eagle Creek has two such par 5’s, our #11 and #15. Just like the feared ‘Snake Pit’, holes 16 thru 18 at Copperhead, our final three holes challenge even the finest golfers.”

Packard stated in an interview with Golfweek “I don’t want you to play my courses once, I want you to come back…I want you to have fun!” And the members of Eagle Creek do just that. With no bundled Chelsea System, members can even walk the course daily just as Larry Packard intended.

When not playing the course, members enjoy the club’s numerous social events, fitness and wellness activities. “My day usually begins with a mixed doubles tennis event and ends with a martini on the verandah,” states second generation member William Owen. “I couldn’t ask for a better place to call home. I am lucky enough to call my neighbours some of my closest friends.”

And speaking of homes, Eagle Creek offers some of the largest lanai views in Naples. Members enjoy watching sunrise or sunset views overlooking the well-manicured grounds from their expansive penthouse lanai or estate homes. Member owned since 1996, they are an established, low-density community with only 460 residences on over 300 acres. Carefully crafted and beautifully designed when home building was more art than commerce, their top-drawer renovations challenge many new communities in both comfort and luxury.

Eagle Creek is currently welcoming second-generation members and would like to invite you visit our Golf & Country Club for a tour.

Eagle Creek is an intimate, member-owned, private club centrally located between Naples and Marco Island, Florida. Resident and nonresident memberships are available. For more information visit or contact Laura Hill at (239) 417-6111.
