“Heavens waiting room.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

Back in 1988, my wife & I were staying down on Fort Myers Beach & our week-long trip was to check out the area for a future place to live out our retirement. A friend recommended to us to go & look at Del-Tura Golf & Country Club in North Fort Myers. So, one day the two of us & my sister & husband drove there to check it out. It was only about 20 miles from the beach where we were staying. To make a long story short, we both bought into the community that same day buy putting money down on two lots, side by side. Three years later in 1991 our two homes went up. waiting to retire we rented our homes out until finally in 1994 we retired & my home has now beco0me our permanent homes where we now spend 7-months from October until late May. Our Summers are still spent in Wisconsin near family. Del-Tura is a 55-plus gated community of about 1400 homes. The homes are called "manufactured homes" that come in on wheels, normally two 12-foot wide modular homes, moist all 2-bedroom, 2-bath with 2-car attached garages, unlike most communities down there that have the familiar attached car-ports. The community has an excellent 27-hole executive-size golf-course, 2-large heated pools &3-satelitte pools, all with hot tubs. We also have 2-large tennis courts, a 12-court shuffleboard set, horseshoes, bocci-ball court & a golf driving range. We also have a multi-million dollar clubhouse for all sorts of various activities & functions & also a restaurant, pub, beauty shop, gym/exercise room, pro shop, ceramic room & many other things for those that want to stay busy. You can check it out on it's own website or better yet, do what we did & that's go & check it out. New homes are for sale & also many re-sale. It's an awesome life-style & so easy to get too as it's located right on highway US-41. Right outside of Cape Coral & just across the river from Fort Myers itself. You won't be disappointed.

“GREAT WINTER HOME”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

We came to visit Del Tura Golf and Country Club December 2012. We were shown around by one of the sales staff. We ended up meeting one of the owners that had another property there that he was selling privately. We ended up buying and took possession January 2013. Went down for two weeks that January and was made to feel so welcome. Had a great neighbour on our left. Went back October 2013 until April 2014. Now we have a new neighbour on our right and they are also great. My other half loves the three 9 hole executive golf courses and I love the fact that there is a total of 5 swimming pools. One being across from my place. Also love the bar and the live entertainment Friday nights and Name that Tune/Name that Face Thursday nights and Tuesday and Saturday nights is Karaoke. Exercise facility on site as well as a library, hair salon. There is so much to do there you can't not have a great time.

“A world apart”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

We've lived and golfed here for going on 4 years. We are one of the youngest couples to live here year round. We were welcomed with openess, and have become an intrigal part of the community. The golf course is a great executive course, better be good at the irons. The course has recently changed management companies... They have done a great job keeping the course in shape. I golf outside the community at several championship courses as well. But the hometown feel of Del Tura is a world apart!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2014 via mobile

Spent 3 weeks here with my fiancé at my parents home in del tura, even though we are not the target age for the community we were welcomed very well and the facility's were very good.
Particularly the small gym and pool facility's.

Look forward to returning again sometime very soon.

Yet to play a round of golf around here!

“Good practice par 3 Executive course”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 December 2013

My inlaws have lived in Del Tura for many, many years. The greens are well attended. A good practice course for serious golfers that need a warm up round. Offer 3 courses. West is the best course.
