The Club and Community at Admirals Cove evolved from a vision captured by developer Ben Frankel (Frankel Enterprises). The community was built around a unique canal system created in the 1960’s by John D. McArthur.
In 1986, Frankel Enterprises purchased the Admirals Cove property from The John D. and Catherine McArthur Foundation. The property at the time of purchase was vacant and undeveloped. The majority of the canals that exist today were dug but extensive maintenance dredging and bulkheading was required.
Development of the property began in the spring of 1986 and the first model homes were completed by the end of that year. The marina, clubhouse, and 18-hole championship East golf course designed by Robert von Hagge opened for play in 1987 and the first residents moved in during that winter season.
The Harbor Master building served as a temporary clubhouse until the Main Clubhouse was completed in 1989. The Golf Village course was built in 1991 and the Golf village clubhouse opened in 1993.
In 1999 the management and control of The Club was turned over from the developer to the members in one of the smoothest club transitions in the history of country club communities.
Today there are approximately 900 residents who are proud to call Admirals Cove their home.
