Everything good, but

Pace of play was rather slow. Group in front of us was playing from white tees when they should of been playing from shorter ones. Driver from 150yds. Is not acceptable from the white tees!

Winter is upon us!

I'm a spoiled summertime player, when it's too hot and course conditions are often very wet. Still, the pace of play allows for 18 holes well under 3 hours. Unfortunately, as the season changes--meaning the temperatures are superb, struck balls roll instead of plug, and distance of most drives gets shorter--the pace of play borders on awful. Slower play can be expected when the course is full of foursomes (and occasional five-some), but my 11:30 tee time today ended shortly after 5:00 p.m. Is that reasonable? To be fair, the start was delayed a solid 45 minutes due to some scheduling snafus, but really... My message to each player that is lining up their putt while their buddy is putting, to every wife (or girlfriend) that has her driver, ball and tee ready to go before her husband (boyfriend) finishes his drive, and to every player that hustles to their cart after finishing a shot, THANK YOU! Please know that you are generally under-appreciated, but I notice!

Pace of play is a challenge for most courses during the winter season, but will be especially true for San Carlos Country Club. Why? Simple--it's very fine course, managed by very good people that clearly attempt to make sure everyone has a positive experience, and available at generally a reasonable price. I've never met anyone that didn't enjoy playing there (except for the slow play). I figure that's a good thing, and, of course, I am just a spoiled summertime player.

To the staff at San Carlos CC, have a terrific (and prosperous) winter season. I look forward to returning in May. Stay healthy!

Just okay...

It's your average Florida semi-private course. Flat, most holes are straight-away and fairly short. There are a couple 90 degree dogleg holes that can be a little confusing (and dangerous if your house is there). Greens were slow, but rolled fairly true. Just really had to get used to the speed. Overall the course conditions were good, and would be fine for an average player.

Great place to play

I’ve been in Fort Myers for a couple months now (just retired). Today was the second time I’ve played San Carlos and I’ll be back! The course was in great shape: tee boxes, fairways, greens were all beautiful. I used the chipping and putting greens before golf. The started helped me to get around. Service staff were all pleasant and friendly. Price was right per local courses. Loved the experience. I’ll be back.

It was a nice course, not exceptionally long, but certainly not short. They have a PGA par 3 out there, and several used a driver trying to get there to no avail. It is a flat course, so if you like to walk this is a good course, and all the holes were pretty tight so not a lot of unnecessary walking.. I think all in all it was a great time and a very nice course.

First time visitor

I played San Carlos Golf Club for the first time on Sep 5 with a visiting league. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. Price was terrific at $30, and best of all, the course was in excellent condition. It was green everywhere, no burned out areas. Tees were in great shape, including par 3's. The greens were a little slow for my liking, but rolled true and were beautiful. I'll definitely be back and would recommend to others to give it a try. No water comes into play to speak of and I'd consider the course somewhat forgiving when it comes to errant shots. Try it! You won't be disappointed.
