Golf is a tradition at The Gasparilla Inn & Club, and guests today are invited to play the resort’s championship Pete Dye course.






The Gasparilla Inn & Club in Boca Grande, Florida, welcomes guests to stay in one of the premiere destinations on Florida’s Gulf Coast and to play on its par 72, 18-hole island course on Charlotte Harbor. The island resort dates to 1913 and it was inducted into Historic Hotels of America in 2007. The historic Queen Anne-style hotel and golf course grounds are on the side of Charlotte Harbor, with sea views all around. Golf at the Gasparilla Inn & Club dates to the founding of the hotel in the 1910s, when guests were able to play on a nine-hole golf course on a nearby U.S. military reserve through the resort’s lease agreement with the government. In the 1930s, new management established the first 18-hole golf course at the resort. The resort’s beach club opened around the same time on the opposite side of the island, abutting the Gulf of Mexico.

In the early 2000s, the inn hired Pete Dye to renovate the golf course. After months of renovation, the Dye course reopened to great local acclaim in 2004. An inductee into the World Golf Hall of Fame, Dye specifically created many iconic golf courses in his lifetime, including the TPC Sawgrass, Whistling Straits, and The Ocean Course. Dye himself adored his work on the Gasparilla Inn Golf Course, taking particular interest in the views of hole #15. Nevertheless, the course retains much of its original charm, as gentle ocean breezes blow in from the surrounding waters of the scenic Charlotte Harbor and the Gulf of Mexico. Each hole has five tees to suit all levels of play and have been refitted with native Seashore Paspalum turf grass for conservation purposes. In fact, the grassy courses are even fed by the island’s complex freshwater recovery system The Gasparilla Inn & Club also offers private lessons with on-staff PGA professionals and extensive practice facilities with a driving range as well as chipping and putting greens.
