Challenging Layout

Lot of fun playing this challenging layout. Large elevated greens with false fronts put pressure on your approach and short game.

super nice course and outstanding practice facilities

The course is in great shape for SW FL this time of year. Arrive early to practice putting and chipping. Those practice areas are excellent. Could be a bit more plush or green. But for the value on the dollar and consideing this course has oublic tee time, it is excellent. Well run by staff, too.
Drawbacks-The grille closed before 5:00pm. Could get no drink afterwards, The entire inside of the fancy building; foyer, pro shop, rest rooms, etc, all had overdone air freshener. I am allergic to that stuff.

Great golf course, in great condition

Golf course and everything around it was first class, our favourite by far!!
Only issue we had was the directions, the link on your site sent us to a dead end five miles away, we only made out tee time because the start was delayed!!
Please sort this out?

Great course and a better deal

Second time playing here and it is a great course. Great condition, not tricked up while being a great challenge. Would love the greens a bit faster and they are in great condition.
This is a fantastic private course and club you should play it while you can. You won’t be disappointed. We will return as often as we can.

Great layout

Course was in great shape and the layout is challenging but fair. Greens are undulating and fairly quick so spend some time on the practice green before going out. The staff was very helpful, I enjoyed the day and will return.

Fantastic!

Beautiful course. We were only a twosome in a shotgun start. But we didn't catch anyone till the 9th hole. So we waited on the back, but it wasn't too bad. Paths were concrete with no potholes, sand traps were many, but well maintained. Plenty of tee boxes to choose from. We got a great golfnow hot deal for $25. I will be back!

Playable and Pretty

I'm so happy to see this course on GolfNow! Private Members still take priority but there are enough fee times for all to enjoy without compromising the pace of play. Lovely course with great water driving Range included with your round!

Great Layout at a Really Good Price

First time playing this lovely challenging layout. The course was in good condition with the exception of some greens, which needed a little TLC. They were okay to putt on however, there were some that had some patchy areas . Overall the course plays well with elevated greens and some very interesting hole layouts. Water and marsh meander throughout so knowing your correct targetlines is important especially for the longer hitters. The staff all around were friendly and welcoming. Definitely would play it again.

A Real Country Club

Very impressed with golf course. One of my top 3 courses that I have played in SW Florida. Practice area seem to be very spread out, but can practice all parts of your game. Very challenging layout while still playable. A number of greens very undulating. Want to play again.
Played with a local that was very nice & knew the course well.
