Sunseeker Resort Announces Plans to Open Aileron Golf Club
The hotel guest exclusive 18-hole championship-level golf course makes its debut in 2023
Punta Gorda, FL – June 15, 2022 – Sunseeker Resort Charlotte Harbor is set to bring more than just
traditional resort style amenities to Southwest Florida’s Gulf Coast. The highly anticipated resort reveals
plans for a private championship level, Par 72, 18-hole golf course, Aileron Golf Club. Coinciding with the
opening of Sunseeker Resort Charlotte Harbor, Aileron is set to debut and welcome hotel guests in 2023.
Designed by renowned golf course architect and former collegiate golfer Kipp Schulties, Aileron Golf Club
will offer Sunseeker guests the ultimate resort-level golf experience. The private course exclusive to hotel
patrons only, will feature five different teeing selections on every hole, providing golfers with options of
play from 5,000 yards to over 7,000 yards. The newly imagined golf club will boast a full-service pro-shop,
an 10,000-square-foot luxe clubhouse complete with a restaurant, bar and a retail area offering Aileron
merchandise that is only available for purchase at the course. Golfers will also enjoy the use of
state-of-the-art lithium-ion golf carts with PACE technology GOLFLOGIX, that includes GPS distances
and 3D heat maps of the greens.
“There has been a significant investment by Sunseeker Resorts to design and develop an exclusive resort
championship-level golf experience that is sure to exceed our guest expectations,” says Jason Shkorupa,
Vice President of Food & Beverage, Golf and Resort Development. “From the newly imagined clubhouse,
bar, restaurant, and pro-shop, surrounded by our pristine grounds and lush landscaping, we believe
Aileron will be an amenity that our leisure travelers and business groups will thoroughly enjoy. Our
creative and talented design & development teams have done a fantastic job, and we cannot wait to
unveil Aileron Golf Club to our guests.”
Home to year-round sun, lush landscapes and exquisite scenery, Aileron Golf Club will also be equipped
with a full-service restaurant and bar on property. The inspiration behind the naming of Aileron pays
tribute to Sunseeker’s parent company Allegiant Travel. French for “Little Wing”, an Aileron is the trailing
edge of an aircraft wing, which helps stabilize and steer planes during flight. Similar to its name, this new
world-class course will guide golfers to new limits.
With over 60-yards of sand bunker practice space, a driving range, short game practice greens with shot
selections from 10-60 yards, golfers can perfect their game while enjoying all the amenities Sunseeker
Resort has to offer including a state-of-the-art 7,100-square-foot fitness center and a full-service spa and
salon as well as two pools including a 117,000-square-foot ground-level experience and an adults-only
rooftop retreat. The resort will also feature 60,000-square-feet of combined convention space with
top-of-the-line features, including two ballrooms fully equipped with high-tech equipment. Boasting a
variety of global cuisines and robust wine programs intended to satisfy any and every craving, Sunseeker
Resort will house 20 wholly owned and branded food & beverage concepts including seven restaurant
destinations, 11 bar areas and a 25,000-square-foot multi-dining venue.

the Resort with complimentary shuttle services available for all guests. Sunseeker Resort Charlotte
Harbor is conveniently located at 4949 Tamiami Trail Charlotte Harbor, FL 33980. For more information
