Great value

San Carlos is by far better then the public courses In Fort Myers. There’s grass in the fairways and on the greens! They’re a tad slow but at least puttable. Simple layout, but still good.

Good course for value

We had a wonderful day here.. course condition was good.. greens were nice and rolled true.. we got rained out for about an hour.. staff was ready for rain and allowed guests to park carts in shed which was amazing.. we hung out inside with a bunch of old guy members who were very friendly and welcoming.. beverage prices are very very reasonable ..
and had the honour of meeting Stan a 90 year old member who shot a 42 on the front . He was drinking brandy and had nothing to do until Sunday, just had to make sure dinner was ready.. just hanging around with da boys loving life .. atta boy Stan

We didn't even stay.

Staff was rude, carts and grounds were dirty. Place looked uncared for. Course, from what we could see, was a mess. We left.

Great fun on the golf course

This course is one of my favorites because of the super friendly staff and the great course condition. The layout is interesting and challenging. The greens were a little slow, but very true and even. The traps and general area were all nicely raked. Fairways and roughs both in very nice condition with plenty of grass. I will definitely be back.

Clubhouse is tired, needs updating, course is average from a challenge perspective. Not overly hard. Course is open and forgiving even with errant shots. Not much water. Traps could use more sand. Staff were pretty accommodating and definitely friendly from the proshop to the starter. Had read reviews about staff negativity but did not witness anything like that. We were five in our party and were prepared and booked to go as a three and two but the starter checked with pro shop and voluntarily allowed a five because it wasn’t busy. We were able to keep up with the threesome in front so was not a problem.

We love San Carlos but....

Course has never been so perfect! Staff superior. Front nine fabulous. Back nine snail pace! At one point six groups on two holes. No ranger.....yet we will return!

Rather Vanilla Course But staff super-nice!

The title says most. We had a pleasant experience. Course is open and fairly flat. Some dry brown patches on fairways but greens in decent shape. Starter took time to explain course, possible pitfalls and suggestions to optimize our experience. There is no restaurant and no cart person; so bring snacks or sandwiches if you’re likely to want them. Plenty of fresh water around the course. One negative was bathrooms are locked and there was no key on our cart. Fortunately a ranger drove by at a key time who not only unlocked. Bathroombut gave us his key.

Well worth it

First time playing this course. Quite enjoyable. Not a championship course by any means but has its challenges. Pretty layout. Staff super friendly and helpful. Carts on the newer side with GPS that worked well. Would recommend it and would definitely play there again.

Good overall facility

I was advised this was not a good course. Ml
As always, you must see it to make your assessment.
This is not a complex or challenging course.
Bit I will include it in the courses I play this month.
The fairways are open and easy to hit.
The greens are large and easy to hit and in very good condition (but quite slow).
This is a good course to play, if you are handicap of 12 or more.

As I said, I will be playing it a lot this month.
