About Snell Isle
The biggest land-based attraction on Snell Isle is the Vinoy Golf Club. The Club has a long history that started in 1925. The first building was a hotel that operated until 1974, when it was closed due to deterioration.
In 1992, the Vonoy reopened, restored to its original splendor. During the time it was closed, St. Petersburg residents obtained a place for the Vonoy on the National Register of Historic Places and was saved from being demolished. Another multi-million-dollar renovation around 2009 has kept the Vonoy a timeless treasure.
The private club has a wide range of amenities, including a Ron Garl-designed 18-hole championship golf course, a tennis complex, swimming pools and spas, and a number of dining facilities. The modern health club boasts Nautilus and Cardiovascular equipment, fitness classes in yoga, Pilates, spinning and more, a steam room, sauna and massage therapy.
