Living the active life
Have you ever stayed at a resort that had so much to do that you couldn’t possibly do it all during your stay? Admirals Cove is a lot like that, but instead of missing out on some amenity, you get to live here and do everything you want. Lucky you!
Golfers of all skill levels will enjoy the intricate design of our forty-five holes. With magnificent views, scenic waterways and a challenging layout, Admirals Cove is recognized as one of Florida’s finest country clubs. The USGA has awarded Admirals Cove the honor of hosting the US Open Qualifier for more than a decade.
Meet The Golf Pros
Director of Golf Sean McDermott has been part of the Admirals Cove team since 2001, and a PGA pro since 1993. Sean has a tremendous passion for the sport and has surrounded himself with a team that shares his dedication to making every turn on the links as enjoyable as possible for our members.
Sean is joined by Assistant Director Matt King, who has been with the club since 1999. A former college baseball player, Matt’s passion for golf took over, and he’s never looked back.
