THINGS TO DO

If you ask a local  "where is Alden Pines", they might say: "oh, that's the golf course on the north end of the Island". 

That would be a true statement; the community of Alden Pines was designed around an 18 hole golf course.  And what a golf course it is!  Relatively short (5596 yards from the Championship Tees) this Par 71 Course has a rating of 68.7.  The course is, however, very challenging. Extremely narrow fairways with many water and tree hazards, Alden Pines is a challenge to the best of golfers, especially those used to smooth fairways and open, flat courses.  Many golfers say if a person can effectively play Alden Pines they can play anywhere!

Alden Pines Golf Course is a semi-private course with annual memberships available.  Greens fees for non-members run between $30 and $45 for 18 holes, depending on season, and that includes the cart rental.  The club house has a small food and bar/refreshments area with seating inside for about 25 people.  Owned and operated by Alden Pines Country Club Inc, reservations for tee times are highly recommended during the high season (Jan - April).

The golf course at Alden Pines is an attraction, as you can see.....however, golf is not what attracts a sizeable number of our homeowners.  Many of our residents don't even own a golf club (though they may own a golf cart because it's the favored mode of transportation within the subdivision). People have a variety of diverse reasons for desiring to live at Alden Pines...... most of them related to its comfortable, laid back lifestyle and the ambience of the neighborhood.

WHAT TO DO?  WHAT TO DO? 

The following is just a smattering of what you can find to do in our "little corner of Eden" without ever lifting a golf club.  (Note:  Some material below is courtesy of the Pine Island Chamber of Commerce website)

   There are over 200 businesses across the Island, ranging from hardware to day spas, art galleries to industrial 
   warehouses.
  Pine Island is the largest island (18 miles long, 2 miles wide and with five unique communities) off Florida’s
   Southwestern Gulf coast. We’re just 15 minutes from Cape Coral and 30 minutes from Fort Myers but our secluded, 
   small town atmosphere is a world apart from either of those city centers! We are surrounded by mangroves, three
   aquatic preserves and acres of palm, tropical plant and fruit groves. Pine Island has escaped the cement and
   skyscraper development so predominant on other Florida islands.  Most locals are happy this is the case.  The
   waters of Pine Island Sound provide not only some of the finest fishing in Florida, but serve as a haven for
   birdwatcher and nature loversHiking trails, kayak and canoe waterways and ancient Indian Shell Mounds add
   to your outdoor adventure opportunities. There is an approximate 13 miles of paved walking/biking path between
   the north end of the Island at Bokeelia to the south end at St James City.  These paths offer safe biking and
   walking opportunities for the entire family.

   Home to many artists, authors, song writers and poets, Pine Island is also known as “Florida’s Creative Coast”.
   Enjoy shopping in our fine art galleries and specialty shops.  Dine in one of our wonderful fresh seafood restaurants
   or stay in one of our charming accommodations

   Because of our wonderful climate and laid back lifestyle, Pine Island is a favorite destination of many snowbirds.
   That doesn't mean a lack of children, however. The Pine Island Elementary is one of the top rated elementary
   schools in the area.  Middle and High Schoolers are bussed off the island to a school of choice at Cape Coral. There
   are a variety of both denominational and non-denominational churches on the island as well as multiple private
   social clubs such as the Elks, Moose and VFW.  Local medical and dental providers serve island residents and
   there are several Volunteer Fire Stations.  Local police protection is provided by the Lee County Sheriff Department.
