Guide to the Top Communities in Naples, Fl

Naples golf communities on Florida’s Southwest Gulf Coast are among the state’s best places to retire for active seniors. For an abundance of sunny days and top-flight golf courses, the upscale retirement communities in Naples are unrivaled destinations.


Perfect Golf Climate


The Naples area is home to more than 80 championship golf courses. About half are located in private community golf clubs and many of the rest are amenities at luxury destination resorts. For the same reasons that so many professional players live in the region, country club members have found the Naples area to be among best places to play.


The tropical climate in southern Florida is perfect for golf, with 300+ days of annual sunshine and comfortable temperatures year-round. Snowbirds flock to Naples in winter to enjoy daily highs in the mid-70s. Spring and fall days are ideal and, even during the summer months, cooling offshore breezes from the Gulf make those preferred morning tee times a delight.


With so many outstanding golf courses in the Naples area, retirees and seniors have plenty of quality layouts from which to choose. Many private golf communities feature multiple on-site courses and most offer reciprocal playing options at other nearby clubs. Men’s and women’s golf leagues feature competitive tournaments at the finest courses and the region’s famed resorts welcome local players with discounted greens fees.


Service With A Smile


The best private golf communities in the Naples area know that superior customer services attract and retain members. The golf courses are meticulously maintained to the highest standards and many have been completely refurbished in recent years. Professional instruction programs are always available, including group clinics, private on-course lessons and new hi-tech options like digital swing analysis.


Great member services in leading Naples golf communities also extend to their expansive clubhouses. Most feature fine-dining restaurants, in addition to more casual member lounges and large shaded patios for after-round refreshments. Clubhouse social activities can also include weekly events like concerts and dances, plus meeting space for interest clubs and volunteer work. In addition, club members have access to on-site amenities like swim centers, fitness facilities, spas and tennis/pickleball courts.


The Naples Lifestyle


Beyond their private-community gates, Naples residents have plenty of outdoor recreational opportunities. The Gulf Coast beaches are among the best in Florida, while sportfishing and boating in the warm tropical waters are simply world-class. Casual strollers can enjoy art galleries and shops on Fifth Avenue South or tour the Naples Botanical Gardens, while hikers can explore the local wildlife refuges and nearby Everglades National Park.


Perhaps best of all, Florida has no state income tax and many seniors qualify for homestead exemptions that can significantly lower property taxes. And while the cost of living may be a little above the national average, the overall quality of life makes the Naples area a winner for everyone.
