Hard Pan

realizing the lack of sufficient rain course might want to consider a watering system, if you like a lot of roll it's here at SCarlos. the lack of grass came in first with the pace of play second. where are the marshalls??? we were stacked up four deep with the group in front of us with two holes open in front on them. tsk tsk, will not be spending anymore money or time with this course

Nice course for the money

Nice layout, very little water and not too many traps. Tee boxes and some fairways were getting thin from lack of rain and lots of play. Greens in good condition, putted true and held shots. Several 90 degree doglegs that can get you in trouble if a first time player. Good pace of play under 4 hours. Would definitely play here again. Got hooked up with a member and two other vacationers. Good guys, good time.

Golf is always good

Golf is always good but the marshals need to speak to groups once in a while as it gets frustrating for those of us who try and keep pace of play good.

Slow Slow Slow

It was unbearably slow and the gps kept coming up that we were behind. Believe me we would have loved to have gone faster.. yell at the slow ones not us who can’t stand the pace. For the same price we have played much better courses.

San Carlos Golf Club

Very friendly staff, course keeps getting better every year. Mostly play in the summer with the PGA Golf Pass. Been playing this course for 30 years and it keeps getting better every year. Ground crew does an excellent job. Had my first hole in one there on the 17th. Keep doing what you are doing, can't wait for May 1st to get back.

Best Value even with the rising costs of high season.

We played last week at San Carlos and enjoyed the day even though the pace was slow on occasion. On this day, the pace was much quicker throughout 18 holes, completing the round in just over 4 hours. Us 3 Canucks were paired up with a 4th from Delaware who fit in really well; and we all had fun and a great afternoon of golf. Again the greens were very nice and the course played well. Great Hot Dogs in the Clubhouse and fantastic welcome and exit by staff at the club drop-off. San Carlos is now our primary destination point for Golf in the Fort Myers area.....Ken

Fast Play

If your number 1 factor is to play fast, this course is for you. We played in 4 hours. Did not fell rushed. Very little water on course and because holes are frequently side by side it is hard to lose balls. Grass is sparse and conditions are below average compared to other public courses in area. You can play equal below average courses cheaper.

Great Value

This course is pretty well groomed with quick greens, soft traps, wide fairways, a few tricks; and very nice practice greens to warm up. You can score well on this course. Staff were all friendly and interested in making a good golf experience for us. It took us 4.5 hours to play. Our GPS kept reminding us to play quicker, but we couldn't as the slow-pokes in front doddled around or fishing for lost balls with no-one in sight up ahead of them. We didn't see a Marshall so that was somewhat frustrating on occasion. Nevertheless, it was a nice day of golf and great value for the price. I recommend San Carlos to others.

San Carlos defines what a golf experience is all about, fun, friendliness and great service. The check in folks are great, Mike the stater is the best, Janine the Cart woman is very nice and the lady in the halfway house who makes the best tuna salad is amazing!

Enjoyable round

As a single made a tee time and was paired with a threesome. Teed off on time and although pace of play was a bit slow it was not too bad. A bit aggravating that the gps in the carts kept reminding we were x minutes behind.....can’t tee off until group in front clears. As I mentioned pace was a bit slow however we finished in 4 hrs.
Staff personnel at check in and the starter were all friendly and helpful.
Overall the course was in good shape. The greens were not overly fast but in great shape and rolled well. Bunkers were in excellent shape and well maintained.
Overall enjoyable round of golf and I will return.
