If you have the opportunity... take it

The Bobcat and Bear courses are by far and away the finest courses I've played in the greater Fort Myers area. The staff is excellent, the members are friendly and the layout is challenging. The courses made me want to live there. Kudos to the groundskeepers and everyone who makes this a very special place. This is a private course, but if you ever have the chance to play here, take it!
