Played raptor bay for the first time. The staff was the friendliest I have found anywhere. The pace of play was excellent, the course was challenging and in great shape. This is a hidden gem worth playing.

I’ll be back!

Always fun playing Raptor - fun track, well maintained, fast greens, challenging tee shots and beautiful scenery! Unfortunately we had a terribly slow foursome in front of us - took 4.5 hours to play and the Marshall didn’t push them; very frustrating! Lots of other options around, but I’ll play Raptor again, however if it’s 4+ hours I won’t go back :(

It’s worth it plying there, but only for a reduced price. i wouldn’t pay 159 $ for a round , but 90 is ok.

Greens are fast and well cut and the surrounding, fairways are very well manicured.

Raptor Bay is a great test if you can keep your ball on the fairways. Greens are moderately fast, and run true. Several intimidating forced carry tee shots, and fairways the slope sharply to hazards require a little more mental toughness than most SW Florida courses open to the public.

I played the course for the first time and had a little difficulty in course layout as they don't have GPS on carts and I didn't have one with me. They have a few holes were you must be careful on what you use off the tee or you can end up in waste areas (hazards) and lose a golf ball. The course was in very good condition with very nice big greens. The fairways are wide enough but if you spray the ball you can have some problems. I would play it again and recommend it as a must play course.

I played Raptor a few months back and didn’t live it. This was my second time playing there and found it to be much more enjoyable. Certainly didn’t hurt to have a little course knowledge. I will go back again!

The course was challenging, but very playable. Greens rolled true, but still tested our putting skills. Pace of play was great (4 hrs.)....it was fairly busy, but everyone moved along well. Excellent weather....a perfect day of golf! We re-booked to play again 3 days later.

NNoWonderful course. It is well maintained and has a beautiful, yet comfortably challenging layout. A good assortment of tees allows you to choose the appropriate level of challenge. I was impressed but the on course management- our round was slow on most of the front nine, but the crew addressed a very slow foursome and had them skip a hole which opened up play nicely.
