September 27, 2021

The Club at Olde Cypress in Naples, Florida, will reopen its remastered P.B. Dye-designed golf course and 34,000-square-foot updated clubhouse in November following a multi-million-dollar investment in the club by owner STOCK Development.

The expansive project entailed the resurfacing of all 18 greens, practice green and chipping area with TifEagle Bermudagrass; enlarging, leveling and re-grassing tee boxes with Bimini Bermuda; installation of a new subsurface drainage system for rapid expulsion of excess water and new high-performance, artificial turf stations on the driving range for use when the grass tees are closed. To complete the project, the course’s 98 bunkers will be refreshed with new edging, contouring and sand.

“Golf’s popularity has soared over the past 18 months and now our course is fully-updated and ready to accommodate our golf members, who are among the most avid players in the Naples market,” says Olde Cypress director of golf Joe Conforti. “Director of golf course maintenance Brad Haynes and his team have been instrumental in restoring our outstanding P.B. Dye design to its original grandeur.”


“Our staff and vendor-partners have been amazing throughout this transformative project and we believe the members and prospective members are really going to love it,” Olde Cypress general manager Ken Lanigan said. “We’re excited to unveil the changes this fall and feel like we’re well-positioned for future growth and prosperity.”

“The golf course remastering and clubhouse updates honor Olde Cypress’ legacy, while elevating the experience for members of this exclusive club,” says Brian Stock, CEO of STOCK Development. “The multimillion-dollar investment represents the club’s continued commitment to unparalleled service and member experiences.”
