Club History

Club History


Six miles north of the Gasparilla Island bridge lies a golf course facing the Gulf of Mexico. This is the home of the Lemon Bay Golf Club. Graced by nature with mature native pines, small lakes and ponds, they serve as home to their original ancient Florida Residences — flocks of exotic tropical birds and the nesting aristocrats of Lemon Bay, the white capped American eagle. They're all here protected by this Audubon sanctioned golf club.

Lemon Bay Golf Club is a private club with 300-325 members interested primarily in golf. We are celebrating our 29th anniversary. A most notable feature is the friendliness of the staff and the membership. For men, women, and couples, it is almost always possible to "get a game" of like minded golfers who are interested in playing in beautiful surroundings on a challenging course. The course itself is a beautiful Audubon sanctioned 18 hole layout with many wildlife species, including bald eagles, shorebirds, and alligators. Trees, a great variety of colorful plant life, and tasteful landscaping present a distraction for the eye but can also hide your errant golf ball. The clubhouse is oriented to serving golfers, and features a grill area, golf shop, and locker rooms.

The mission of Lemon Bay Golf Club is to be a traditional golf club, in keeping with the vision of our founding members. We strive to promote a love of the game, to encourage congeniality among all members and guests, to be responsible citizens of the community and to respect our environment.
