Beautiful course. Sand and water everywhere, so huge penalty if you don't keep it straight. Elevated greens are in great shape. Greens are very fast and lots of slopes.

very friendly staff, good driving range and practice facilities, nice course design, but course not in perfect shape (maybe still because of hurricane Irma?), greens very good, overall I had expected more from description / reviews and homepage ...

got green fee 6 hours before teetime for 80$ (single player), for me it is worth what I paid but not normal price

One of my favorite courses in the Naples/Boneta area. It is a challenging course that has one of the highest slope ratings in Florida but offers a beautiful layout. The greens are fast and true. I definitely didn’t conquer this course but will keep trying, The head pro named Bill was one of the nicest people that I have encountered at a resort course in years. He went way out of his way to make us feel at home and arrange our outing the best he could to accommodate our schedule. I will be back.

This was the first time playing this course ... and it will not be my last. Played it with my two sons. The three of us have handicaps that are single digit, teen and 25. We all loved it. It was very challenging and somewhat humbling but very enjoyable. It gave me a few areas of my game to work on improving. Pay attention to the slope and do not be hesitant to play at shorter overall yardage than you typically do. Gorgeous layout.

Great course having played many Nicklaus designed layouts I will say this tops them all. It’s beautiful, challenging, fair test demanding all your clubs with perfect greens and is in great condition. Greens are awesome tough for sure but bunkers are set such that your misses still give you a chance for par assuming you put and chip well. This layout has no homes around it providing the best scenery around... par fives are tough yet gettable and the par threes are fun. Love this course...

Staff is solid and the practice area is excellent.

I played with my son we are both 2hncp players and would highly recommend this course. Keep in mind play the proper tees/ yardage’s for your ability to make this more fun...it’s hard from the tips be aware...but very fair from the white tees..

Good luck

Played 4 different courses this week and this was the best. Greens were very unjulated and the scenery was beautiful. I only had one complaint. The greens were slow but I'm guessing this time of year is normal. WI'll definitely be back. Bring balls if first time and take advantage of doglegs.

Old Corkscrew is a fun round. Classic Nickl;aus - looks harder than it actually is..... lines from tees look tight but plenty of room. Greens had undulation but not crazy, although some pin positions were unfair. Course was in good shape although greens could have been a little faster. Staff were wonderful. Definitely plan to go back.

First timer ar the Jack Nicklaus design. I have played Muirfield Village and this poses a similar strategic test, with generous tee shot targets, well placed bunkers and multi-tiered greens. Putting was a special challenge on this well-conditioned track. A definite “would recommend to any accomplished golfer. I will return.

I love this golf course. if i lived here year round this would be my home course. The staff are great and the golf course is in fantastic condition. At first glance the greens look a little shaggy but they run perfectly and are very very fast.

This is a very challenging course. I am a pretty decent player - a solid single digit handicapper but this course beat me up pretty good. I would advise everyone to choose their tees carefully. The course is 6600 yards from the Blue tees but I think, taking into account the Florida sea level air and humidity, it plays about 10% longer. Than means a lot of very long shots into greens. Once you are on the greens the fun really starts !

Play this course if you can - its a lot of fun.
