This is a venerable club for golf and social events in Ft Myers, and is most reknown for being the home club of Minnesotan sorority girl Patty Berg, founder of the LPGA and one of the world's most accomplished, women golfers.
Patty Berg died of Alzheimers at age 88 in 2006. At that point, the membership at Cypress Lake was mainly Berg's contemporaries. The Club's own longevity was looking bleak. Since then, an energized Board (way to do biz, Sis!) re-engineered the greens and imposed new pricing structures for membership that were designed to attract younger members, as well as new members of means during a tough Economy. It also re-decorated the Clubhouse, adding a dance floor and attractive draperies that frame good views of the golf course.
The long bar remains the most attractive 19th Hole. I recently attended a luncheon featuring a fashion show by Eva Creations, Ft Myers, who used Club members as models.
Some things never really change. Stop by to see the museum guality, Patty Berg trophy room that serves as the Club's lobby. It's a living landmark.
