Mediterra’s spectacular Fall 2018 Model Home Showcase continues today from noon until 5:00 p.m. at the 1,697-acre gated community located two-miles north of Immokalee Road on Livingston Road in North Naples.
Five furnished model residences by award-winning developer and builder London Bay Homes are being featured. London Bay has transformed Mediterra with the introduction of new neighborhoods showcasing single-family villa and estate homes with Coastal-influenced architectural styles and open-concept interiors designed by Romanza Interior Design. New home choices are available, including London Bay’s furnished model homes and homesites showcasing water and preserve views. Custom pools and outdoor living areas by London Bay’s Acquatico pool and outdoor living design company overlook Mediterra’s spectacular tableau. Purchasers of homes by London Bay are eligible to secure a full golf membership immediately rather than being placed on the membership waiting list as a Limited Golf Member.

The Fall 2018 Model Home Showcase will continue next Saturday and Sunday November 3rd and 4th, and Saturday and Sunday November 10th and 11th. The models will be open for viewing and purchase from noon until 5:00 p.m. each day.
In addition to visiting London Bay’s breathtaking models, those attending the Fall 2018 Model Home Showcase will experience Mediterra’s remarkable beauty firsthand. Two distinctly different golf courses designed by Tom Fazio are set against the splendor of the community’s spectacular tableau and weave their way along sparkling lakes, wetlands, and nature preserves. As beautiful as they are playable, each of the courses presents distinctive design characteristics and unique challenges for golfers of every skill level. Members also enjoy the benefits of the Golf Learning Center that offers the latest in swing analysis technology and personalized instruction. Membership opportunities at Mediterra are limited to just 225 members per 18 holes, allowing for abundant tee times. Golf Members are treated to a well-rounded program built upon a robust tournament and instructional offering, a staff focused on genuine service and hospitality, and world-class amenities.

The Club at Mediterra has been certified as the world's first 36-hole Audubon International Silver Signature Sanctuary. Known as the “master of environmentally-sensitive golf course designs,” The Fazio Design Team took every precaution to ensure that the golf courses at Mediterra not only supported, but also nurtured the surrounding environment and habitat. Fazio incorporated rolling bunkers and natural land forms into both golf courses to compliment the Mediterranean countryside ambiance of the community. The fairways’ firm Platinum Paspalum turf provides fast playing conditions that is complimented by the Tiff-Eagle Bermuda grass on the greens. Both courses were designed with golfers of all skill levels in mind and feature nine tee options and no forced carries.
The North Course blends naturally with the topography and features subtle doglegs that angle away from the golfer’s line of play. Members are particularly captivated by the 7th and 17th holes on the North Course. The 7th hole is a hole unto itself with a natural tree line, a beautiful water feature, and not a home in sight. The setting has a northern feeling and conjures a sense of being totally removed from the day-to-day and connecting with the surroundings in a uniquely personal way. A nice scoring hole, the 17th hole is a gentle boomerang par 5 with a natural setting that includes a unique bent leaning pine tree that provides an appealing memory point. There are no home intrusions on the 17th hole.
The South Course challenges the golfer with elevated greens, fast chipping areas, and strategically placed bunkers with beautiful flashing. The signature of the South Course is a corridor that showcases views of holes 11 through 14. The 11th hole is a beautiful straight par 4. On the horizon, golfers will also see the 12th tee, the 13th green, and the 14th hole in the distance. The setting offers striking sunset views in the late afternoon. Like the North Course, the South Course presents beautiful water features. Fazio has incorporated bunkering on both courses that includes low entries and steep exits on the green sides. The bunkers are vast in size and while it may be relatively easy to exit them, advancing the ball all the way to the green may be another story. While both courses can offer a stern challenge depending on tee selection, higher handicapped golfers will appreciate that neither course has a hole with a forced carry over a water hazard.
While the golf staff’s commitment to impeccable service is extended to all members, great care is taken to welcome those who are new to the game, particularly ladies who are not only interested in learning the game of golf, but also in enjoying the socializing that is part of the Mediterra golf experience. Those new to the game are treated to a “get to know you” session that allows staff members to become familiar with their interests and skill levels and to learn about what each new golfer is seeking to achieve. “Get golf ready” programs for ladies are held on Monday afternoons from 2:30 until 3:15 during season. The programs focus on the fundamentals of the game while getting beginners comfortable with coming to the golf course, visiting the pro shop and locker room, and getting on the carts and going to the driving range.
Those who take part in the programs typically play in the Club’s ladies’ 9-hole events on Wednesday afternoons that average about 40 players per week. The events follow a scramble format and are designed to be more like social gatherings than competitive events. New players typically strike a connection with a staff member involved with running the events and that connection generally develops into some form of individual instruction that provides additional opportunities to meet new friends and to grow even more comfortable with the overall golf program.
In addition to the model’s included in the Model Home Showcase, London Bay’s previously sold Sonoma model in Mediterra’s Caminetto neighborhood will remain open for viewing by appointment only through the end of November. The Sonoma model was named recipient of CBIA’s 2018 Product Design of the Year Sand Dollar Award in the Single Family $3 Million - $3.250 Million category.
