History of the Club
Bay Colony was first established in 1973 by executives from Westinghouse Communities Inc. They turned overgrown tomato fields and mangroves into their version of paradise. Pelican Bay, Bay Colony and Pelican Marsh were developed over the next twenty years. The demand was high for estate homes in an esteemed golf club setting so Bay Colony was extended to include The Estates at Bay Colony and The Bay Colony Golf Course. In 1993 the golf course opened with nine holes and another nine holes across the street in the community. Later nine more holes were added to each side as more affluent members migrated to Southwest Florida and wanted to join this prestigious club.
