The only reason course conditions wasn’t a 5 was because they had an incredible amount of rain recently and the bunkers had almost no sand in them. Greens were a little slow as well due to this Im sure. Other than that you can’t beat the layout.

Really tough course, not a lot of safe places to misfit to! But, if you play from reasonable tees, it becomes a good test of shot placement golf...

Amazing classic Nicklaus design. Wow what a course. Love the variety of tee shots and the cerebral layout of this course. You have to use your noodle and almost every club in your bag. Greens were firm and undulating unlike any I’ve seen. Great challenge. Only downside was some of the tees were closed so we had to tee from other boxes mostly at shorter length I’m nitpicking. Book your tee time now and enjoy this gem in Estero.

This course is not your traditional Naples and for that matter, a Florida residential community golf course as there are no homes on the course. How refreshing! Nice layout, challenging holes and greens. The greens remind me a bit of Pinehurst #2 in that there is plenty of undulation, several false fronts, many crowned spots such that you need to know what part of the green is most receptive to your shot. The best play could very well be twenty feet left of the flag. One suggestion to the greens crew would be to not cut new cups near old cups that have not healed. Also, there were a number of pins cut at the top or base of a crown. All in all, I enjoyed the course and look forward to coming back.
