The men and women who live alongside Myerlee Country Club know that the serenity of the well-groomed golf course extends far beyond the fairway. Founded as a small active living community in the 1960s, the club now boasts 1,100 condominiums with stunning views and easy access to the palm-speckled links. Perhaps the most challenging feature of the course is its narrow river, which runs the length of the entire property, abutting almost every hole and slicing directly through the rest. The river offers a challenge for golfers and an attractive retirement home for errantly hit golf balls. When members aren't busy working on their short games or grabbing drinks at the Tiki Bar, they're staying active in the community; Myerlee frequently sponsors food drives for the Harry Chapin Food Bank, and hosts charitable golf outings whose proceeds bolster beneficiaries such as Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

Golf World's well-manicured, lighted practice facility emerges out of a pine-tree forest to woo golfers with an expansive driving range, while their shop equips gear-less guests with brand-name equipment by Taylor Made, Callaway, and Titleist. Send a bucket of golf balls skyward from the range's artificial turf and bermuda tees, practicing long-distance strokes and improving accuracy by targeting rooftop satellites. A shaded pavilion offers cool respite from sunny summer days, and an assortment of tee heights hones striking skills with all clubs. Peruse the discount shop's extensive selections to purchase a pair of gloves ($10 for two pair), replace a worn-out putter ($29.99+), or usher your 9-iron out of the Bronze Age.

Sprawling alongside the historic Caloosahatchee River, Riverbend Golf and River Club's 18-hole executive course pairs picture-perfect drives with equally impeccable surroundings. Winding waterways, native woodlands, and crisp river breezes follow players across the course's 212 acres, and overhead, eagles soar gracefully while muttering swing critiques under their breath. After rounds, groups can celebrate new low scores at the club's 19th hole, Marker 34, which caps off pleasant days on the links with quaint waterfront views and eats from an onsite restaurant.

A windswept canopy of palm trees and tiki huts cast shadows over Golf Safari’s 18-hole mini-golf course, where putters explore a safari-themed pastiche of life-sized lion statues, jungly gardens, and misting waterfalls. Built upon a foundation of rocky outcrops, the emerald passageways swerve among the hooves of zebra sculptures, pretend giraffes, and real-life goat-human hybrids. Sprightly flowers and ponds dotted with lily pads greet putt-putt posses along the way, providing a tranquil contrast to pressure-packed putts. With each hole in one, players gain a lifetime of bragging rights against their competitors, as well as the eternal friendship of George T. Gorilla, the course’s primate mascot.

Designed by Charles Ankrom and built in 1970, Sabal Trace Golf and Country Club sends golfers swinging across 18 holes of undulating fairways, intersecting water hazards, and elevated greens. The course caps off the front nine with its longest hole, a 544-yard par-five with a canal that runs along the right side of the fairway and eventually jets across the fairway in front of the green. After finishing their round on the par-four 18th hole, players can recharge at the Tavern by the Green Restaurant, which serves breakfast and lunch daily.
