Beautiful course and layout. Unfortunately Florida has got a ton of rain and the course was wet, cart path only and lots of bugs. (Bring your spray). If you play in the 80's play the white tees-they play longer than the yardage on the score card. Slope ratings are very very high so don't get frustrated the first time you play it. Beautiful practice facility. Gps on carts. If you want a challenging course-this is a must play. Had a great day!

Course was Amazing! Yes the greens were very fast and difficult, but they were true and made you think on every chip and putt! The faster the better for me because it takes the game to the next level which is expected at such a nice course! My complaint is the bag guy in the morning was a complete jerk and so full of himself it ruined the excitement for me which I had been looking forward to for a long time!!! No customer service skills at all which was a surprise for such a nice course! The gentleman after our round was very friendly which made me wonder how the guy in the morning could be so opposite!

A beautiful golf course, the fairways were in great condition. The staff is friendly and efficient. Some holes are very challenging with some small greens well protected by water/sand. The greens were the nearly unplayable, many having sharp slopes and so extremely fast that any putt could send your ball well past the hole or even off the green. The ball just wouldn't stop rolling.

Trying to land an approach shot on the green required a perfectly vertical landing or extreme spin.

I've played at champion/PGA courses and have never seen speeds like this. The grass was cut nearly to the ground.

For this reason I would not recommend this course.

Definetly worth the drive. Excellent as most Jack Niclaus designs are.

It wasvery windy so we lost a few balls.

The greens are lightning fast.

So far it was the best course we played in the Naples/Ft Myers area.

The course was in excellent shape and the greens were rolling at a good pace. Had 3 other players in the group and we all agreed this is a must play if in the area. Nicholas did a great job integrating this course into the lay of the land. We played this course last year when there and wanted to play it again this year. It is close to the airport so if you get in at noon or before, you can play it the day you arrive.

This is a great golf course. Excellent condition. Landing areas are accessible. Approach shots very challenging.

Greens are mostly elevated and protected. Lots of opportunity for "sucker pins". It's not enough to be on the green to be in good shape but be on the right part of the green. If you like a course that makes you think and have a good iron game this will be one of your favorite courses. GPS on carts is always nice but it's extra valuable here. Give this one a try...it's not boring
