The path in a search for desirable real estate properties in North Port, Florida, often leads to the homes for sale at the Bobcat Trail Golf Club, which is much more than just a residential community. This golf community enclave provides an astounding array of amenities and facilities masterfully developed in a development conveniently located a mere three miles away from Interstate 75. Located halfway between the cities of Fort Myers and Sarasota, its pristine North Port location is a half hour’s drive from any of the modern-day conveniences and attractions in the Sarasota and Charlotte County surroundings.
This golf community, adjacent to the beautiful Twin Lakes Waterway, was developed in harmony with the natural Florida environment and features lush fairways and greens, as well as parkways and peaceful courtyards in its perfectly executed tropical landscaping. All these came into full bloom following a recent renovation program undertaken at Bobcat Trail.
The community’s clubhouse is one major beneficiary of this renovation which included the installation of new flat-screen television units to further boost the amenities for its membership. The recent improvements are a boon for the many happenings in the busy social calendar of Bob Trail which is a popular North Port venue for parties, banquets, and receptions. A professional culinary staff of world-class chefs ensures that the club maintains its reputation as an ideal venue for all occasions whether it is a grand social event, an intimate business dinner, or a soiree among close friends.
Ordinary days become special with a visit to the Bobcat Café whose habitués find endless delights in its servings of tasty sandwiches and fresh salads. Another favorite community hangout is the 19th Hole where its “Bar Dog” comes as a house attraction that is incomparable to other wine and dine places in the city.
Other Bobcat Trail activities, similarly basking in the natural splendor of the community, flourish in various club centers. Included among these are a fully-equipped fitness center, efficiently maintained tennis courts, and a heated swimming pool. Tranquil and relaxing walks can be enjoyed in many shaded paths and trails. As inviting are the winding and palm-lined sidewalks and parkways, ideal for jogging and brisk-walking exercises.
Golfers partake in the euphoria experienced playing a great round of golf as they tour Bobcat Trail’s 18-hole, par 71, four and a half star rated golf course. Extending up to 6,748 yards, this course was designed by Bob Tway, a Canadian Open titleholder and former PGA champion. A famed course architect, Lee Singletary, contributed to the design that has earned the moniker “The Cat” following its opening in 1998. After undergoing its recent renovation, the course now has newly refurbished bunkers and resurfaced greens of Champion grass. New Precedent golf carts with GPS units have also been purchased to further enhance the club’s golf amenities.
The layout for “The Cat” is known for its unique “risk–reward” design allowing challenges for golfers with varying play skills. Any of the course’s 18 holes can be considered as the layout’s signature hole, a quality that has not escaped Golf Digest magazine which gave the links a four-and-a-half star rating. The revered publication has likewise described the layout as a “must-play” and ranked it as one of the best thirty Florida courses.
A well-stocked pro shop supplies the club members’ golf essentials. Aside from equipment, accessories, and fashionable wear, the pro shop also provides golf-themed items such as jewelry, awards and commemorative’s, golf art, posters and personalized gifts.
