Here, golf is the driver of lasting relationships and an outlet for a community to rally around.

Our 71-par course promises the entire experience of being both a challenge and a relaxing escape. Lemon Bay recently underwent a complete multi-million dollar renovation in 2023, designed by golf course architect Drew Rogers.

Our Mission

“To offer an exceptional golf experience by promoting the love of the game; encouraging congeniality among members, staff, and guests; being responsible citizens of our community and dedicated stewards of our environment.”


Love It Here

Lemon Bay Golf Club is dedicated to nurturing the game of golf and the community that adores the sport. Our commitment to this mission can be seen through A Better Shot Junior Golf - our program that teaches local kids good values through the game of golf and our long-standing recognition as an Audubon certified golf course.

We exist to provide a piece of paradise and an approachable atmosphere for our membership season after season. Our club is more than land; it is an unmatched preserve for the game of golf, wildlife, and human connection.

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 325 members interested primarily in golf. In fact, we are celebrating our 35th anniversary in 2024.  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 several dining areas, a golf shop, and locker rooms.
