I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. This course is extremely demanding. It’s always in great shape. The reception at the bag drop, pro shop and restaurant are top shelf. They make you feel welcome and happy you’ve come to play their course. They show lots of pride and take great care if you while you’re there.

Go play it, you won’t be disappointed.

This is one of the best courses in SW Florida, but sand traps need significant attentio to maintain this distinction . Sand in traps (most of them) are packed wet sand with some only having a 1/4" of sand, which is inconsistent with a high quality courses of southwest Florida.

Staff was great, conditions were perfect, greens rolled true and had some undulations. If you are a long hitter you should play the tips or you will only need driver on 3 or 4 holes. Very unique course for Florida as it is cut through the woods with no housing development in sight

Great course if you want to test your game. Extremely challenging but fair. Getting to the greens is like running the gauntlet, but the greens are even tougher. Precision on ever shot is a must. Bring your A game, nerves of steel, and a couple of extra balls. You be worn out when you finish, but you will be glad you came.

This is an outstanding course regarding layout and condition. One of the most difficult/challenging golf courses you’ll find anywhere. Unfortunately, my playing partners cart stop working (staff brought another cart out quickly) and the GPS in my cart had limited functionality. Even with those issues we still had a good time. The only reason I didn’t rate at 5 stars is due to the price. I would play it again but only if I can find a deal on the green fee.

Like many reviewer said it before: this course is a beauty, however it is truly a players' course, strategic ball positioning on your way in is a must. The greens are on the limit of being too hard. We played 36 holes one day.

The staff is there is very friendly and helpful. We would definitely return.

As usual this 138 sloped layout gives even better golfers all they can handle. Add some wind and better bring an extra sleeve. Greens are undulating and quick with strategically placed bunkers. Nicklaus said he designs courses to reward good shots and hammer you for bad shots. Drop that hammer on average shots as well at O.C. Most holes require you to be fairway off the tee and below the hole on approach. Any deviation can put you in the, "Oh, no" category. But it IS fun to play, my fave in Ft. Myers area.

We traveled into Ft Myers for a week, played this course on the Thursday, and then came back to it Sat.

It was challenging, in 5 star shape, with friendly staff. You have to play smart golf, lay up, take your bogey's when needed, and move in.

can't wait to come back again.
