AVE MARIA, FLORIDA, — January 5, 2021— Ave Maria Development is excited to announce that Lennar Homes will be unveiling its new golf course, The National Golf and Country Club at Ave Maria. The course is scheduled to open with a private VIP ribbon cutting and shotgun event on Thursday, January 7 with the opening to the public on Friday, January 15.
Gordon Lewis, award-winning golf course architect based in Naples, designed the centerpiece of the neighborhood- the 18-hole championship golf course, complemented with a chipping area, aqua driving range, putting green and a Pro Shop. The National provides a unique golf experience unrivaled in Southwest Florida with one of the longest par 5s in the area, along with one of the shortest par 3s.
With wide, inviting fairways and distinct slopes on the lush greens, the par 72 course was designed to be enjoyed by all golfers from beginners to low handicappers.
“Having Lennar build the first bundled golf community in Ave Maria was an easy decision. Lennar does an excellent job in creating an enjoyable experience for players of all ages which fits seamlessly in our multi-generational community,” states Blake Gable, CEO of Barron Collier Companies, developer of the town of Ave Maria. “The National’s grand opening is a fantastic time to play the new golf course while it is open to the public.”
