Shadow Wood’s outdoor patio expands over 6,800 square feet, seats more than 200 comfortably or, more than 300 for cocktail parties. Separated into 3 distinct but connecting areas, the patio space offers members everything from comfortable lounge seating, bar seating, dining tables, and seating around 6 fire pits. Weekly outdoor entertainment on the patio brings members together to enjoy the beautiful Southwest Florida weather while watching the colorful sunsets. At the west end of the patio, members can watch golfers play the 18th hole of Shadow Wood’s South Golf Course or, at the south end they can enjoy expansive views of the golf practice facilities. The patio was expanded in 2017 with the addition of the Bocce complex situated next to the outdoor bar, then again in 2019 in conjunction with a 10,000 sq ft casual dining expansion to connect the new outdoor areas. Due to the increasing popularity of the outdoor spaces, Shadow Wood is now in the process of expanding the existing patio bar and building another outdoor area, which will be known as The Players Patio, opening Fall 2022. The new patio will be located on the East end of the building, adjacent to the Golf Shop and Locker Rooms, and will feature two fire pits and seat 120 members in both covered and uncovered spaces.
