5. Hole in the Wall Golf Club
The Hole-In-The-Wall Golf Club was established in 1957 for members who appreciated the traditions of the game of golf and enjoyed each other’s company. This deep seated tradition continues today. The name, Hole-In-The-Wall, was derived because the property was the northern section of the Hole In The Wall Ranch. At the end of the last century, before the Tamiami Trail was even thought about, there were two separate areas of settlements in Naples. One was east of the Gulf Coast strip from Gordon Pass and the other was east of Naples Bay and Cypress Swamp.
