The Sanctuary: Nature Meets Luxury on Sanibel

the_sanctuary_water_view The Sanctuary Golf Club located on Sanibel Island is home to golf and tennis as well as a showcase for the natural preserve that surrounds the course.  The perfectly manicured Arthur Hills’ designed par 72 and 6,657-yard Championship golf course and the 5 Har Tru clay tennis courts intersect with nature on the 240-acre community.  The golf course overlooks Pine Island Sound and is one-of-a-kind where animals in their natural habitat roam. The Sanctuary Golf Club is privately owned with 353 equity members who come from Sanibel and Captiva but mostly live in the Sanctuary community. This is a 5-star rated Platinum Club ranked #9 in Residential Communities in the U.S. The Sanctuary, recognized by the Audubon Society as a cooperative course, is the only private golf course in the U.S. surrounded by natural preserve and the only private course on Sanibel Island.  The most exclusive community on Sanibel is the Sanctuary at Wulfurt Point.  Offering residents maximum privacy in an exclusive setting, this 465-acre community is tucked adjacent to the “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge.  The natural preserve surrounds the Sanctuary.  The Sanctuary enjoys open space and natural views with only 272 homes.  The Sanctuary features all varieties of housing options: single-family homes, detached villas and low-rise condos.  Single-family homes at the Sanctuary are deed restricted to a minimum of 2,500 square feet on oversized lots. The Clubhouse offers both casual and fine dining.  In addition to the Clubhouse, Sanctuary amenities include tennis, a pool and fitness center.  Club membership is not a requirement for home ownership at the Sanctuary.  The Sanctuary is located on the northwest end of Sanibel Island on Wulfurt Road, north of Sanibel-Captiva Road.  The Sanctuary Golf Course as title sponsor is hosting the 12th Annual Sanctuary Community Golf Challenge on January 25.  This event has raised over $920,000 in the past years for the Charitable Foundation of the Islands.
