The Ronto Group’s TwinEagles community has been selected to host the 2018 Chubb Classic PGA TOUR Champions Golf Tournament to be held next February 12th through 18th. The 2018 event will mark the seventh consecutive year and 12th time overall TwinEagles’ Talon golf course has served as the Tournament site. The world class golf tournament is televised nationally on The Golf Channel and attracts the strongest field of competitors from the Official Money List and legends from the World Golf Hall of Fame.

The Chubb Classic has a tradition of charitable donation. In the 30-years the PGA TOUR Champions has been in Naples, over $3 million has been donated to various initiatives. The official host charity of the 2018 Tournament is The First Tee of Naples/Collier. The First Tee is an initiative of the World Golf Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in St. Augustine at World Golf Village. Its mission is to impact the lives of young people by providing learning facilities and educational programs that promote character development and life-enhancing values through the game of golf.

The Talon Course has long been a favorite of professional golfers. Set against a backdrop of oaks, palm trees, and lush landscaping, it is acknowledged as one of the finest private club courses in the country. The Talon was designed by Jack Nicklaus and his son and is widely regarded as the top residential golf course in Southwest Florida. The challenging yet fair 7,193-yard course features all of Nicklaus’ signature design elements, including length, tricky approaches, undulating greens, bunkering, mounding, and water hazards.

The Talon Course is one of two golf courses at TwinEagles. After purchasing the community in September 2010, Ronto worked with noted golf course architect Steve Smyers to create a new course that has a challenging historical design with modern yardages. When the new Eagle Course opened, it was named “Best New U.S. Private Course of the Year” by Golf Magazine. Smyers and his design associate, Patrick Andrews, consider the Eagle Course a true work of art that makes the most of the natural setting.

Members at TwinEagles have access to one of the world’s most respected golf instructors. Dr. Jim “Doc” Suttie is ranked 17th on Golf Digest’s list of best teachers in America. In 2000, he was named the PGA of America’s National Teacher of the Year and is a three-time winner of the Teacher of the Year award from the PGA’s Illinois Section. He’s also included among Golf Magazine’s Top 100 Teachers and ranked as one of the Top 20 teachers in America on Golf Digest’s 50 Greatest Teachers list.

For TwinEagles’ members, hosting the Chubb Classic is a source of pride. Members are afforded an opportunity to be fully engaged during tournament week. Members have full access to the clubhouse during the week, and share the dining room with the players and tournament officials. Members receive VIP passes to attend the tournament and are welcomed to bring guests on Friday and Saturday. Valet parking is provided and there is a members’ hospitality suite. “Our members do take a lot of pride in knowing our club has been selected on a regular basis to host a PGA TOUR Champions event,” said Andrea Bach, General Manager of the Twin Eagles Club. “This is a nationally televised tournament with some of the best golfers in the world. All of us, the members and the staff, know this is a wonderful moment for TwinEagles to shine and for the national audience to see just how special this place is.”

Boardroom magazine has recognized TwinEagles as a Distinguished Emerald Club, a designation accorded to the top five-percent of private clubs throughout the world. To be a Distinguished Emerald Club, the club must provide a member experience at a level attained by only the finest clubs in the world. A full golf membership is included with the purchase of every newly constructed home at TwinEagles.

The golf courses provide a magical tableau for the grand estate neighborhoods tucked along lush fairways and shimmering lakes that offer breathtaking vistas and a sense of privacy. A 47,000 square-foot clubhouse pays homage to St. Andrews where the game of golf was born. In addition to a golf pro shop, the Clubhouse’s verandahs that overlook preserve views and the finishing holes of both courses provide an ideal setting for enjoying a post-round beverage. The Clubhouse offers one of the finest dining experiences in Southwest Florida. Award-winning Executive Chef Chas Tatigian serves up a variety of succulent treats that can be accompanied by a selection from a meticulously vetted wine list.

The Clubhouse is complemented by an amenity center that includes a 2,500-square foot pool with a spa, a zero-entry feature, and a sunning deck overlooking a lake. An outdoor lounge, dining venue, and lighted Har-Tru tennis courts are located adjacent to the pool. The 6,430-square foot fitness center includes men’s and women’s locker rooms, areas for aerobics and yoga, and a fitness hall that houses state-of-the-art exercise equipment. TwinEagles also offers the serenity of dozens of lakes, walking paths, and neighborhood parks and gardens for enjoying the community’s tranquil ambiance.

In addition to TwinEagles, The Ronto Group is developing Naples Square in downtown Naples, the Seaglass high-rise tower within Bonita Bay, and Orange Blossom.
