Testimonials from some of our long term Canadian Members:

"Throughout the ‘80s, Nancy and I vacationed regularly in southwest Florida.  When we realized that the Fort Myers area was bound to be in our future, we started looking at gated communities that offered 36 holes of golf, a solid tennis program, decent lot sizes, and mature vegetation.  We found it all at The Forest as well as it being warm, welcoming, and friendly.  We felt at home instantly and twenty-six years later we have found no reason to change our minds."
Nancy & Bill O'Flaherty of Port Severn, Ontario 


"The Forest doesn't bring together just golf members, it fosters a community of belonging and friendship - and as Canadians it's the reason we have stayed here.  It's become our second home.  We have been members of The Forest Country Club since 2009.  We enjoy all the amenities and unique approach of the club, from extraordinary dining to fun and exciting social events, The Forest has been a part of our daily lives when we are at our home in Florida.  We can't rave enough about golfing two exceptional golf courses, while enjoying the Club and all it has to offer.  We simply love it here and look forward to Canadian Winters so we can spend time with our friends in Florida and at The Forest!" 
Julie & Gerry Riddell of Etobicoke, Ontario 


"You will not find a better golf/tennis combination in Southwest Florida. Nor will you find a more friendly club. Life at The Forest is very, very good." 

Maureen & Murray Aust of Toronto, Ontario 


 “We came to visit The Forest on the recommendation of some friends.  This club exceeded all our expectations, from the two superb golf courses with unlimited access to the tee, to the professional and courteous staff and a welcoming and friendly membership.  In a nutshell, we came with the goal to rent for a season and we ended up buying.  That’s what this place does to you.” 

Joanne & Patrick Farrell of Etobicoke, Ontario
