As anticipation continues to build for Tesoro Club’s grand reopening, the visionary new ownership has shared exciting plans for the Swim & Racquet Club. Encouraging the finest of sporting lifestyles, this Florida golf & country club community will be among the first in the area to incorporate three racquet sports into their program. From tennis and pickleball to the internationally renowned padel, see what’s being planned for this exceptional address.
Combining the elements of tennis, ping-pong, and badminton, Tesoro Club will offer eleven dedicated pickleball courts, including several lighted for night play. Pickleball has exploded in popularity within the past few years thanks to its ease to play, but ability to develop into a quick, fast-paced game for experienced players. The game is played on a badminton-sized court with a slightly modified tennis net, paddle, and a plastic ball with holes. Played in singles or doubles format, this growing sport is great for both longtime tennis aficionados and new players alike.
Tesoro Club’s ownership team is also searching for ways to bring something new to their racquet offerings and are looking into adding in a padel court. This rising international sport from Europe combines the elements of tennis, squash, and badminton on a court that’s a quarter the size of a tennis court. In padel, however, players use a perforated paddle, and the court is surrounded by glass, ensuring the ball can never go out of bounds. With an AstroTurf surface, the ball in padel moves slower than in tennis. However, for more experienced players, the ball can be bounced off the walls, creating a strategic and fast-paced game enjoyed by all. While popular throughout South America and Europe, this sport is lesser known in America, with only 65 courts across the nation, and only 5 other courts in Florida.
Along with the racquet sports program, The Swim & Racquet Club will also feature a junior Olympic, 30 meter, zero-edge swimming pool, two bocce lawns, casual poolside dining, and a pro shop for swim and racquet needs. The 100,000 square foot Landmark Clubhouse will offer Members salon and spa services, a state-of-the-art fitness center, men’s and women’s locker rooms, a golf pro shop, and boundless activities for Members to enjoy. Tesoro Club is also home to two 18-hole championship golf courses designed by Arnold Palmer and Tom Watson. Both courses are undergoing renovations to improve playability for players of all skill levels, with the Palmer course planned to open later this year and the Watson course in 2024.
The development team is also excited to announce an exciting array of new homes that will be introduced to the market during the summer of 2022. Two of the nation’s top homebuilders, WCI Communities and Toll Brothers, will provide an outstanding selection of residential options, while custom home builders will offer a collection of more personalized homes. Spectacular wooded preserves, Arnold Palmer golf course, or lake views will be the standard for every residence, creating an enviable address focused on indoor/ outdoor Florida living.
