When Samuel H. Stephenson and his wife, Elizabeth, settled as early residents in New Port Richey, they were believers in the therapeutic healing qualities of the mineral springs which have since become Seven Springs.
Samuel created a pool by installing a well pipe to divert water from the spring. This pool overflowed into the Anclote River, where they built a bath house for guests, and the mineral water was shared with the guests if they wanted it. This was essentially an early “health resort.”
This early resort area has since become Seven Springs Golf and Country Club, and it includes even more than the Stephenson’s possibly could have imagined their mineral springs pool becoming. SSGCC has everything you desire and deserve from an elegant, member owned country club: Golf, Dining, Catering, Recreation, and, of course, Membership!
SSGCC features two golf courses, practice range, golf shop, two swimming pools, (one Olympic-size for families and one for adults), tennis courts, fitness center, library and clubhouse for parties and dining.
Golf Digest has named the Seven Springs Championship Golf Course among Florida’s best and one of the top two golf facilities in Pasco County! Designed by architect, Ron Garl, these semi-private golf courses offer 36-holes to challenge players and provide opportunities for skill enhancement for members and their guests.
The Champion course is enhanced with majestic pines, cypress woods and beautiful lakes. The Challenger course has been referred to as a game enhancement course as it requires precision with the golfers short irons. Moms & Dads who want to sharpen their game skills, as well as introduce their children to the art of the game love this course. Children under the age of 16 enjoy playing a complimentary game of golf when teeing off with a green fee paying adult.
The courses open at 7:00 AM, and offer competitive rates for Members and their guests. SSGCC is a semi private golf and country club. The public is always welcome. The practice facility includes an ample driving tee area, four target greens, fairway bunkers and a large putting green.
Golf professional, Mark Haluska, a 25-year member of the PGA, offers superior instruction through private lessons. His philosophy is “Keep it simple, learn the fundamentals and don’t take them for granted.” The primary areas on which he focuses include grip, stance, posture, alignment and ball placement. Assistant Golf Pro, Mark Boyko, also teaches private lessons individually and in groups of two or more.
When it comes to catering, SSGCC insists, “You create the memories. We will do the rest.” From intimate gatherings of less than 25 people to wedding parties of 200, SSGCC is the perfect venue to serve your needs! The Floridian-style clubhouse features 2 large banquet rooms, complete with dance floors, and a smaller banquet room overlooking the pristine Champion Golf Course and the sparkling pool. Further, the grounds provide a beautiful backdrop for photos and weddings on the country club grounds.
