The highly-anticipated Sunseeker Resort Charlotte Harbor is set to bring more than just traditional resort style amenities to Southwest Florida's Gulf Coast with Aileron Golf Club. The course will be home to the finest in golf course design with rolling fairways, strategic waterways, mounded greens and framed bulk heads, opening exclusively for resort guests this October.
Designed by renowned golf course architect and former collegiate golfer Kipp Schulties, Aileron Golf Club will offer Sunseeker guests the ultimate resort-level golf experience. The private course exclusive to hotel patrons only, will feature five different teeing selections on every hole, providing golfers with options of play from 5,000 yards to over 7,000 yards. Golfers will marvel at the over 650 yard par 5, one of the longest par 5s in the state. The newly imagined golf club will boast a 10,500-square-foot luxe clubhouse, including the Aviators Club, a full-service restaurant & bar and a pro-shop featuring premium golf brands, as well as Aileron merchandise that is only available for purchase at the course. Golfers will enjoy a new fleet of state-of-the-art EZ GO lithium-ion golf carts. Throughout the year, Aileron Golf Club will play host to tournament events, weekly guest leagues and fun, social competitions, in addition to group golf outings and customized golf getaways.
"Aileron Golf Club offers Southwest Florida a new unique level of luxury play as it will be the first resort-guest only golf course for a complete newly-built integrated resort destination with over 700 rooms to open in the state in over 3 years." said Jason Shkorupa Senior Vice President of Sunseeker Resorts "The response from the industry has been incredible, golf pros and fans of the game have expressed to us they cannot wait to experience the vibrancy of a new destination and all the amenities that will be waiting at the resort after a rewarding day of play."
Golfers of all levels will enjoy an unforgettable golfing experience with opportunities to improve their game or hone their skills. Aileron Golf Club will offer a wide range of private and group instruction, focused on learning cause and effect principles applied in set-up and motion, unlocking golfers' ability to improve direction and maximize distance. Additionally, offering the best equipment available for practice, demos and expert club fittings that target improving accuracy, fewer putts and building more confidence on the course. In addition, Aileron boasts a practice facility which includes a full-size driving range with target greens, short game practice greens with shot selections ranging from 10-60 yards with multiple bunkers to refine chipping skills, and a 7,400 square foot putting green that simulates similar putts you will see throughout the course.
Home to year-round sun, lush landscapes and exquisite scenery, Aileron Golf Club will also offer a challenge for golf aficionados with the "tailspin," a trio of holes set to be the most difficult on the course. Golfers approaching holes 14, 15 and 16 will keep the most advanced players on their toes to find precision, particularly as they try to make par on hole number 16 where the water hazard requires a full carry.
After a long day of play, golfers can retreat back to the resort to enjoy the amenities of Sunseeker including a state-of-the-art 7,100-square-foot fitness center and a full-service spa and salon as well as two pools including a 117,000-square-foot ground-level experience and an adults-only rooftop retreat.
