Fiddler’s Creek, the award-winning community located on Collier Boulevard on the way to Marco Island, has been recognized with its eighth consecutive Distinguished Club designation, the preeminent distinction of excellence in the private club industry.

Presented annually by BoardRoom magazine – considered the most respected and influential trade publication in the private club industry – the Distinguished Club program recognizes clubs offering world-class membership experiences. Clubs are peer-recommended by a committee of industry experts and top private club general managers.

“We congratulate Fiddler’s Creek on being named a Distinguished Club for the eighth time,” said John Fornaro, the publisher of BoardRoom, which designed the program to recognize and preserve the private club tradition. “Special recognition to the management team, as well as the club’s board of directors, department heads and the entire staff, for providing a world-class member experience and achieving the Hallmark of Excellence.”

BoardRoom executives, who have reviewed more than 5,000 clubs worldwide, used a proprietary, club-specific rating system focusing on food and beverage service, golf operations and courses, tennis, aquatics, and spa and club facilities, as well as governance, procedures, attitude, ambiance, and the club’s traditions, history, lore, and captured pride.

Fiddler’s Creek is an award-winning residential community in Naples, Florida, developed by Gulf Bay Group of Companies.
