Outstanding Course

A great experience from the moment you arrive at the bag drop until you leave. Reception at bag drop is efficient and friendly. Pro shop staff greet you with genuine professional style. The practice area is top notch and every starter I’ve met have been engaging and accommodating. I’ve played here for seven years and can honestly say the experience is better then what I see at my club back home. The conditions a are second to none. The course layout and condition will give you all the test you’ll need. It tests every aspect of your game and will expose any weakness. Do everyone a favor and play the tees appropriate to your skill. Be prepared to be humbled!!

This course never fails to deliver an experience worthy of your time. Just remember this “Tony Jacklin is the only person, Jack ever “gave” a putt to”!

Carved through Pines: what looks like a flat piece of land, laid out for an Orange grove; has been transformed by “The Jack Nicklaus”, into an innocuous encounter with victory or terror at every mis-hit.

But, what else would you want? Never too much trouble for the careful golfer, but disaster for the adventurous mis-hit.

The greens are quick and sweeping, but very fair. Come up short and Jack isn’t impressed. Most greens have been designed to revoke a short shot.

Oh great: a short par 4. Remember: Jack built it.

Worth every $$ you spend.

Clubhouse is minute, but welcoming, as are the staff. After 1pm: Worth asking if the back nine is clearer. Might be quicker to play it 10-18 1-9?

Practice facilities are wonderful: DR, CG, PG & BK.

1/2way pickup availability via cart Wi-Fi.

This IS the hidden GEM of SWFL.

No, I’m not employed or sponsored by them. I live in the UK, but have family in SWFL.

Wonderful Corkscrew

Played the Nicholas designed course for the first time. Having played many courses in the Naples Ft Meyers area I have to say that Old Corkscrew is one of the most challenging. If you are used to playing a forgiving course then you will be either pleasantly surprised or frustrated. All I can say is that I am looking forward to returning and give the course another try.

GREAT COURSE.....NEED YOUR A GAME

Great golf course.....a second shot course and you need your putter to be hot to score. Every hole is different and presents different challenges, Also we saw 7 gators so there are more hazards lurking in the ponds. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Well done Old Corkscrew!

Great Track in SE Florida

This was my second time to this course and I wasn't disappointed again. Staff is excellent, course was in great shape and pace was reasonable (3:45). Greens were fairly fast and rolled pretty true. Quite a few challenging holes while some holes allowed for semi-errant tee shots. Overall one of the more challenging courses in the area. Doesn't run through a housing development either so that is great...conversely, this course takes a little bit of a drive to get there...about 13 miles east of 41 off of Alico. Worth the trip!

Incredible course and best I've played in SW Florida

If you want to experience a PGA level course but with tees suited for your ability, here it is.
It was windy, I played the back tees, so yes it was extremely challenging. That being said, this course layout is acceptable for anyone ~20 handicap or better. The perfect layout of each tee box makes it playable whether you hit your drives 340 or 200, doesn't matter. You must think your way around this course and make sure you place the ball within the right areas. That being said, they red stake all the areas between holes and behind the greens - a great solution to keep pace of play up.
I highly recommend playing this course at least once. Competitors will want to play it multiple times. PAY ATTENTION TO THE GPS in the cart. Let the starter know how far your average drive is and they will place you on the appropriate tees.

The point is to make it difficult but fun.

We are going back tomorrow to take a another shot at it.

**In our group we had a 0 and 15 handicap. both had an incredible time**
