Only could play 13 holes

We had a reservation to play the East-North courses. When we got to the 13th green on the North course a member of the maintenance crew informed us that they North Course was closed. So we walked off and weren’t able to finish our round. Would appreciate some sort of rain check/Golf Now credit for the inconvenience.

First Timers

my wife and I played for the first time. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The tee blocks were level and there were 5 sets to choose from. Fairways were in decent shape, greens were good, but extremely fast.... you learned quickly to hit the ball easy on the greens.

Conditions are much better

Since the renovation, the conditions are as good as anywhere else. A little slow pace, but acceptable. Golf shop staff friendly and helpful. Starter, ranger, and bag boys/men could be more friendly. Good value for a Naples area golf course. Enjoy.

A round on Spanish Wells

First time on Spanish Wells was very enjoyable. Lots of water and some narrow landing areas but those created some nice challenges. Staff were very helpful and very friendly. Would definitely go back again when in the area.

Played north (tricky) and south (standard). Pace getting better on the second nine as slow 4 somes fortunately finished their game after 9 holes. Players should learn to repair their pitch marks.
2 birdies from blue tee box. No other wildlife...

Tried Again

I had been here a few years ago and the course was in rough shape. I saw that the reviews were improving so I went back to try them again. Big Improvement! The course is in much, much better condition than it was. Greens had good speed and only a few brown spots. Approach shots hold. Fairways were grassy. The entire staff is very friendly including the pro shop, starter, maintenance and bag boys. (Well, they're not boys, but they are nice guys.) This course is very good value for the money.

Great layout

The course was in great shape, not a long course but very challenging. You have to keep the ball in the fairway..

Will definitely play it again.

Mix It up

The way to play is South then East and on each nine there are many holes where the gold tees should be used as doing so improves the hole dramatically. I do a mix of blue and gold and the holes I choose gold over blue makes the course a very interesting challenge. To each his own but holes that lend them selves to the gold tee are 3,5,6,7 and 8 on the south and just about every hole on the East but again your own skill level and wind conditions will dictate the tee boxes. Billy Casper golf continues its upgrading and this is one of the best values around.
