Renters will enjoy the numerous amenities that Legends Country Club has to offer. Each renting family is required to pay a mandatory $250 membership transfer fee. In return, renters are then free to enjoy all of the social activities that the Legends has to offer for the period of their stay, INCLUDING GOLF. In the main clubhouse complex there is an upgraded physical fitness facility, aerobics studio, library, pub and restaurant. The club's adjoining resort-style heated pool and spa provide exceptional aquatic enjoyment. There is also a neighbourhood pool only 'a wedge shot away' from our home. Legends offers excellent bocce ball, pickle ball and tennis facilities, including 7 lit clay tennis courts. New Renters are welcome to join the many planned activities or organize their own fun. The recently renovated clubhouse restaurant and pub feature reasonably priced, varied menus and special theme dinners and buffets abound.
Our garden home is a designated GOLF UNIT, and the mandatory membership transfer fee allows two renters to play on Legend's newly renovated, award winning course for $40 per person, including power cart, during the prime time winter season. These fees are only $25 between May and December. Renters may also invite their guests to golf for an added green fee. The golf course at Legends was created by renowned golf architect Joe Lee and was voted as the 'Best Golf & Country Club Community in Southwest Florida' two years in a row by the Fort Myers-News Press readership.
Legends is a low density gated golfing community which is conveniently located in sunny Fort Myers less than two miles west of I-75 and the Daniels Parkway. Legends is spread out over 650 acres of pristine land to create a community for active living that offers the beauty of lakes, tropical foliage and wildlife in harmony with southern architecture and an outstanding golf course! Half of Legend's acreage remains as preserve to help sustain a serene and peaceful environment in which to live and play.
Beyond Legends gates, there is the excitement of Twins and Red Sox spring training baseball, the beaches of Fort Myers and Sanibel Island, world class shopping plus lots of arts and culture. With all that the region has to offer it is no surprise to learn that Henry Ford and Thomas Edison chose Fort Myers as their winter residence. If you are a snowbird, especially one who loves golf, there is simply no better place to be in southwest Florida than Legends Golf and Country Club!

About Don Fairweather
We are a recently retired Canadian couple. We enjoy our family, travel and activities such as walking, cycling, golf and tennis. We also enjoy sharing our 'little piece of Paradise' with discriminating tenants when we are north.
Don Fairweather purchased this Condo in 2011
Why Don Fairweather chose Legends Golf & Country Club
We visited many active lifestyle communities throughout Florida searching for just the right spot for a vacation home, with bundled golf. After visiting Legends in 2010 and viewing our garden home, we immediately recognized that this was what we were looking for. We love the southwest gulf coast weather and the proximity to great beaches, shopping and the airport. More importantly, we like the friendliness of the Legends residents and the wonderful amenities available to us. As golf and gardening enthusiasts, we feel that we are arriving in Paradise every time we pass through the Legends gates!
What makes this Condo unique
We enjoy the great weather and the many opportunities for remaining active and exploring the region. One of our favourite treats is waking up and watching the shorebirds, enjoying a leisurely breakfast and reading the paper on the lanai. Our favourite pastimes include walking, cycling, tennis, pickleball, golf++, swimming, shopping and exploring the region.

Very charming place!
Very clean, welcoming, comfortable and bright. It feels good in this garden home. Super sunrise in the morning. Super place for active people (golf, tennis, etc.). Owner attentive to the needs of tenants. To recommend without problem.
Thank you for your comments. We enjoy having you return to our garden home annually and appreciate that you love our home and the Legends community as much as we do!
Mr. and Mrs.
This is our 6th year at the Legends and this is by far the nicest experience we have had. The corner, second floor unit gave us a beautiful sunrise over the water and golf course.
The accomadations were very nice and everything we needed was supplied from bikes to beach chairs, umbrellas, excellent kitchen supplies and more.
We would be back next year if it were available!
Ten minute drive to Gulf Coast Town Centre or Miromar Outlet Mall or twenty minute drive to Coconut Point Mall for the best in SW Florida shopping!
