Country Club East to See Expanded Facilities in 2015
2015 will bring the opening of a brand new full-size practice facility to the Royal Lakes course located in Country Club East at Lakewood Ranch Golf and Country Club. As Lakewood Ranch Golf & Country Club continues to grow, a second Clubhouse in Country Club East will begin construction in 2015 for the enjoyment of all Country Club Members.
The Original 18 Holes: Cypress Links
- Wide golf corridors offering a fun experience with over 100 acres of maintained turf for the first 18 holes and a more forgiving experience for the average golfer
- Large lacy-shaped bunkers complimenting expansive undulating fairways in a very traditional course layout
- Twenty lakes within and around the golf course to enhance and beautify the view with less than half in direct play as hazards
The Second 18 Holes: King’s Dunes
The 11th hole is a downhill par 3 that features a 20-foot drop from tee to green over a beautiful wetland. The entire 18 holes feature dramatic elevation changes, rolling fairways, beautiful lakes, rock walls and an overall look that is unlike most Florida courses. The bunkers are a different style than those on Cypress Links. Other differences include:
- The front nine holes are routed in a parcel heavily treed with mature oaks and pines and forested wetlands. Clearing was based on hole design with only target areas being totally void of trees
- The back nine’s topography has some strong elevation changes to create some terrific views and shot potentials
- Overall concept is a challenging golf course that takes the caliber of play up a few notches with the difficulty increasing at each skill level, requiring good club selection and recovery techniques to be played
The Third 18 Holes: Royal Lakes
- Royal Lakes was designed with all skill levels in mind to be forgiving, yet, it is quite challenging for the most skilled players measuring 7,320 yards from the Championship tees
- The course can also be very enjoyable for beginner golfers from the Par 3 tees measuring 1,800 yards. Every hole can be played as a par 3 and it’s a great way to introduce golf to any member of the family, young or old
Athletics: Pool, Tennis & Fitness
With such a wonderful way of life, it only makes sense to want to get the most out of it. To help, the club features an Athletic Center with countless ways to stay fit. The 13,000 square foot fitness center includes the latest machines by Cybex, rooms for aerobics, pilates, yoga and other classes, two heated outdoor pools (one resort and one Jr. Olympic with eight lap lanes), and massage therapy facilities. There are also 18 lighted clay tennis courts.
Courts are designed for minimal sun interference and feature the HydroGrid watering system for optimal playing conditions. There are locker and shower facilities, shaded seating, and a pro shop.
The Athletic Center is open seven days a week with 24 hour access and offers a variety of membership plans. Choose from selected programs such as Tennis or Aquatic and Fitness only. Our staff can help you determine the perfect program to meet your tennis and fitness needs.
