Two (2) nights’ accommodations in the Penthouse Apartment at The Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club for one (1) couple
One (1) round of golf at The Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club course for one (1) couple

The Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club is an anachronism in the very best sense of the word: first constructed in the 1880s as The Naples Hotel, it was purchased in 1946 by Henry B. Watkins, Sr. The par-71, 6,900-yard championship course—the first 18-hole course in Naples— is a historic golf landmark dating to the 1929; it was completely renovated in 2016 by Jack Nicklaus in collaboration with architect John Sanford.

In 2018 Michael Watkins, grandson of the original owner, announced a strategic partnership to refresh the resort with The Athens Group, one of the country’s foremost developers of luxury communities. Among the many companies bidding for consideration, the Watkins Family chose The Athens Group because of their commitment to preserving the integrity of the course.

The winning bidder will get to experience a Naples classic: two nights’ accommodation at the Hotel, including one round of golf. While there, they can enjoy “toes in the sand” dining, Gulf sunsets and an opportunity for romance and renewal.
