Course was in solid shape. Starter warned us numerous times to 'hit em straight" or else and he was not lying. Disappointing lunch offering with cold hot dogs and brats with little extras the specialty. Nice layout that can challenge most.

If your in town play raptor bay that’s all I can say . I will give some advice though hit the ball high and don’t hit driver off the tee every time . No rough here if you hit a low running shot it can go in the brush really easy . Great course great people .

We were looking for a place to play golf while staying on Marco Island. This course was a little over an hour away but was well worth it. It’s a beautiful course for the money. We were a group of two beginners and one novice. We found this course challenging at times but very exhilarating. The greens were fast but the fairways were in great shape. The starter was very friendly. The snack shop had sub par food however. Overall, we had a great golf day. I would recommend this course to anyone staying in Marco Island , Naples or Bonita Springs.

Raptor Bay is always a fun track. The course was in great shape and we flew around the front but the back we waited on every shot. There were 3 groups ahead of us and then it appeared that there was at least a two-hole gap. None of the people in the 3 groups seemed in any particular hurry but then where else would I have rather been?

Next time, feel free give us a call in the pro shop and we'll try to resolve the issue. Hope to see you again soon!

No sand bunkers, but still challenging with some tight fairways and elevated undulating greens. Beautiful course, with very little “housing” in sight.

I was looking to get a round in on a recent visit to Bonita Springs. I was able to get a 7:34 tee time which was perfect to beat the heat. I played from the tips (about 6500 yds) and I found the course to be very fair. Fairways were big enough for slight stray tee balls and greens rolled beautifully (about a 8-9 stimp). GIR are a little challenging because of some of the pin placements. One thing for sure, you don’t want to be long on most approach shots.

the course is outstanding but to play this course

often is out of the question.It is too tight and you only

have really half the fairways and not many bail out

areas.Good to play once every so often.

Course appears short but turtle back greens and crowned fairways make this a very challenging course. Waste bunkers line some tight fairways and make shot selection and placement critical.

My first round at Raptor Bay was a delight, as it was a very nice golf course for a reasonable (by Naples area standards) rate. Finished in 3.5 hours. Spotted many cool water bird, several gopher tortoises and a racoon. Lots of water, but fairways, thankfully, were fairly generous.
