History

Vanderbilt Country Club's development began in 1999. From this beginning design to infrastructure, policies to practies, the community is dedicated to being the finest golf and country club living opportunity in the area. Today, we pride ourselves on being a top tier Bundled Community in Southwest Florida. Vanderbilt Country Club is masterfully designed to include a combination of 800 estate homes, villas, carriage homes and condominiums on over 323 acres of shimmering lakes, lush fairways and nature preserves.

Vanderbilt's golf course winds through a 6,735 yard, par 72, 18-hole Gordon G. Lewis Signature Design Course. Wide, undulating fairways and mammoth greens are the staples of the layout. While the design is among the finest, the course is creative and challenging, yet designed strictly for pleasure. With five sets of tees on each hole, the Vanderbilt course offers exciting challenges to both the novice and experienced golfers. {CLICK HERE for more Golf information}

      Vista Room

      The new look of our Vista Room, as inspired by  interior design experts Club Design Group, who coordinated the design with our architect and the VCC Design Project Team, features an updated theme and includes new, comfortable furniture suitable for a fine dining ambiance.  In addition, the restrooms were expanded and remodeled.  There is an emphasis on a lighter interior feel.  The acoustics are amazing thanks to the new fabric ceiling.

       
       
       
       



      The Vanderbilt Room

      A third meeting room has been constructed along the north side of the clubhouse, which we refer to as The Vanderbilt Room.  This also serves as a private dining room with seating at a large table for 16 people. 

       
       


      Vista Room & Covered Terrace

      Many of our visitors come to Southwest Florida to enjoy our weather, particularly during the fall, winter and spring.  Part of enjoying the great weather is outside dining.  Two years ago we added new furniture to our patio.  The new covered patio, The Terrace Café seats 60 people.  Our architect has designed this beautiful covered patio with a tile roof that coordinates with the new roof of the clubhouse with lights, ceiling fans and radiant heaters. 

       
       
       
       


       

      Clubhouse Bar & Lounge Area

      Members continually voice their desire to increase the bar area while maintaining its intimate and friendly atmosphere. We have left the bar intact while expanding the walls by nine feet and adding more glass, which provides a more open and airy feel to the bar.  Further, the openness of the design offers a fantastic view of our beautiful golf course.
