Welcome to herons Glen Golf & Country Club

Recreation District

Herons Glen is a gated championship golf and country club community with 1,300 homes in North Fort Myers on the northern edge of Lee County, Florida. The Herons Glen Recreation District offers many amenities to its residents and guests including a 45,000 sq ft clubhouse that features a ballroom with dance floor and stage, dining room and lounge.

The Recreation District was established under Chapter 418, Florida Statutes, for the purpose of providing recreational amenities. Furthermore, it was formed in 1999 when the residents of the community voted overwhelmingly to purchase the recreational facilities from, then developer, Coolidge Fort Myers Realty. A provision of Florida Law allowed us to finance this purchase through a tax-exempt bond issue, creating an instrument of State Government known as the Recreational District. An elected Board of Supervisors governs the affairs of the Recreational District.

The Homeowners Association was first instituted as part of the legal structure of the original developer of the entity known as Del Vera. It was passed onto Coolidge and then inherited by the residents when acquisition occurred on January 1, 2005. The HOA is a Florida not-for-profit corporation. An elected Board of Directors governs the affairs of the HOA. While they have distinctly separate organizational structures and functions, the HGRD and HOA cooperate for the benefit of our community in a number of ways.
