Estero Forever partners with the Village
Working together for the community

The Estero Forever Foundation has entered into a partnership agreement with the Village of Estero to benefit our community.

This partnership involves utilizing a recently acquired Village asset to raise funds for the Estero Forever Foundation and our mission of Forever Building a Stronger Community. 

The Golf Coast Driving Range property located at 9000 Williams Road was purchased by the Village of Estero to be re-developed for the benefit of the community.

During this planning phase, The Village has agreed to allow the EFF to operate the driving range until such time the property is re-developed for its future purpose.  Those use and planning discussions are currently happening, but in the meantime, the EFF team have rolled up their sleeves and started operating the driving range as a not-for-profit business.

The revenue flows directly into the Village of Estero and a portion of those revenues will be directed back to the Estero Forever Foundation on a monthly basis to be used for the purposes we proclaim on our vision statement.

The Golf Coast Driving range current operating hours are 9am-5pm, Monday through Friday. 

If you are interested in volunteering at the range for a great cause, please contact us and we will be happy to discuss those details with you!

Those of you who enjoy swinging the club, we encourage you to stop by the range and support the Estero Forever Foundation and the Village of Estero.  We have scheduled an Open House and Ribbon Cutting ceremony on September 9th, so save the date and we hope to see you there!
