Membership at Epping-Forest

Epping-Forest Yacht & Country Club has evolved from a historic estate into one of
the most exquisite Yacht & Country Clubs in the South.

Blending the active lifestyle of today with yesterday's elegance, Epping-Forest is a world-class Yacht & Country Club providing an array of the finest amenities for its members and their guests. Epping-Forest Yacht & Country Club combines turn-of-the-century romance and world-class amenities in a setting of historical significance. Built in 1926 by industrialist Alfred I. duPont and wife Jesse Ball duPont as their Florida residence, Epping-Forest was quickly distinguished as one of the country’s finest estates. Many illustrious guests, such as the Vanderbilts, Carnegies, Goulds, Presidents Gerald Ford and Anwar Sadat, graced its rooms for lavish parties. In the early 1970s, Epping-Forest became the home of the Raymond K. Mason family. In 1984, Gate acquired Epping-Forest from the Mason family. The company strongly believed that the estate should be preserved for future enjoyment by Jacksonville’s citizens. Recognized on the National Register of Historic Places, Epping-Forest Yacht & Country Club now offers a traditional elegance reminiscent of times gone by, while offering the modern conveniences of today.
