Pelican Preserve Golf Club is a private-equity, 55+ golf community located in beautiful, sunny Fort Myers, Florida.

This beautiful Fort Myers golf community was built by WCI Homes beginning in 2001 and had its Chip Powell golf course completed in 2002. Homes have continued to spring up since that point in time, making the community right around 20 years old.
