Club History

The Venice Golf and Country Club began operating in November 1991 as an 18-Hole private country club ideally located on 460 acres of pristine landscaping in beautiful Venice. Since that time, the Club has provided members with the highest quality lifestyle and amenities, offering memorable fine dining experiences and a celebrated calendar of events.

The Club and golf course were turned over to members in 1999, and we remain the only private, gated, member-owned Club in the Venice area. We have consistently maintained a financially stable, healthy balance sheet due to the oversight of the Board of Directors and all committees under them, which are comprised of Club members, the General Manager and limited staff.

VGCC has enjoyed the fruits of strategic decision making. There have been three capital renovation projects in the 27-year history that were voted on by the members of the Community. Our Long Range Plan ensures success now and in the future by balancing facility maintenance needs with the desires of the Membership.

In 2015, the Club invested $2.5M in course improvements, including a new, state-of-the-art irrigation system, re-grassing the golf course, enlarged range, new practice area, and two new tees. Our exciting $6.1M Clubhouse and Wellness Center expansions began in July 2020, and were completed in early 2023. These projects have ensured that VGCC will remain the most desirable private country club in Southwest Florida.
