1. More Than a Few Birdies on the Course

Spanning 1,490 acres, Tesoro Club prioritizes the preservation of its expansive natural surroundings. Whether entering through the main gates or playing a round of golf, Members will be greeted by picturesque waterways, nature preserves, and scenic lakes. This commitment to maintaining the natural environment has also transformed the community into a haven for diverse wildlife. From graceful great blue herons and majestic great egrets to the vibrant tricolored heron and colorful purple gallinule, Tesoro Club is a thriving habitat for various avian species.

Tim Jones, Managing Partner of Tesoro Club, was in awe the first time he drove through the community. “I couldn’t believe what it looked like,” shared Jones. “The terrain, views, and even the wildlife were quickly apparent. Its openness is really unlike anything you’ll find in a golf community further south in Florida.”

2. New Collection of Signature Golf and Lake Homes

The peaceful nature of Tesoro Club seamlessly flows into its homes. Neighborhoods are divided into distinct villages, guaranteeing that views of the golf courses, lakes, and preserves are a standard feature of every backyard. In 2023, WCI Communities and Toll Brothers introduced two new upscale neighborhoods, featuring impeccably designed model homes open for daily tours. The Signature Homes Collection also offers a variety of new luxury residences. Builders like Ecclestone Signature Homes, GHO Homes, AR Homes, and Janssen Custom Homes have created cottage to estate-sized residences that merge innovative architecture with the natural beauty of the surroundings. Ecclestone recently unveiled its first model home, the Augusta, which is available for private tours daily.

“As a homeowner, you have beautiful views of the water and golf in your backyard,” shares Head Golf Professional Matthew Doyle, “but it’s not close enough to where you have to worry about a stray golf ball in your cup of coffee.”

3. A Championship-Level Golf Course Chosen to Host Pro Tour Events

Tesoro Club has garnered attention not only from homebuyers but also from golf purists seeking a championship lifestyle. The Palmer Course has become a premier destination for PGA-level tournaments, having hosted the second stage of the PGA Tour Qualifying Tournament, the Astara Qualifier for the Korn Ferry Tour, and the PGA Tour Cognizant Classic Open Qualifier. Spanning from 4,756 to 7,316 yards, the course meanders through pristine wetlands and wooded natural preserves, offering scenic views on every hole. Full Golf Members enjoy unlimited play on the course, along with access to lessons and instruction from golf professionals at Tesoro Club’s impressive practice facilities.

“The Palmer Course takes your breath away,” shared Head Golf Professional Matthew Doyle. “The beauty, the waterways, the shots, the bunkering – it really is a spectacular golf course that has a big wow factor to it. We’ve heard many remarks from PGA players that our course was one of the nicest they’ve been able to play.”
