Nice Track

This is a great value currently since the Front 9 is closed for reconditioning. The variety of tee boxes adds a nice challenge to the course. The whites are playing a little shorter than most courses but that was fine. Great pace for a Sunday late morning. We finished in 3 hours.
I would play Shell Point at any time. The staff could not be any nicer.

Golf sixes

They are replacing the sod on the front nine and current turf is dead. The back side was in nice shape.
Greens were excellent.

First Time Playing

Great layout, excellent greens.

First time playing Shell Point. Very windy conditions. Told starter that I was a 17 handicap and asked what tees he would recommend. He said “white” without hesitation. It was only a bit over 5100 yards I was hooked up with another guy”Glen” from PA. Told him I was a “bogey” golfer and he said that was about what he shoots.
Very windy conditions, I was glad the starter recommended the white tees. It was a strange day weather wise. We had high winds, then pouring rain that lasted 10 min and when the storm ended, we had hot and humid weather with sunshine. Couple holes later, the wind picked up again.
Starter informed us that the front fairways were brown because they will be replacing the fairways soon. The greens were lush, and stimped at 10. The back 9 fairways were green and lush. The greens could be tricky but they ran true for the most part. We both bought our tee time via Golf Now. Being May, the price was under $30. What a deal.
We had a great lunch in the fancy clubhouse, very inexpensive for what we got.
On the downside, there was no signage telling me where to check in. The guy in the proshop had me pre-checked. Handed me my receipt and told me to give it to the starter. I walked out and didn’t know where to go to get my cart.
Finally found the cart guy. He told me where to find the starter. I got my clubs and drove across the road to the range where the starter was. Thought I would hit some balls since I was 45 min early. Was told by starter that it was 10 bucks for a small bucket and I would have to go back across the street to the proshop to pay. $10 for a small bucket??
I opted to chip and pitch and hit sand shots at the large short game area. Then putted for 10 min at the putting green before hooking up with my playing partner.
Overall we both liked the layout but agreed we would probably not pay the 80 to 100 to play in season unless We were staying at the beach and wanted to treat myself. . I might play it once in season if it was discounted. On a 1 to 10 scale I would give the overall experience a solid 8.

Played here based on location .....

This course was near work, so my buddy and I played it. For $40 any other public course (Ft Myer CC, Eastwood, Coral Oaks, Palmetto Pine’s) would have been a better spend.

Entire front nine is under reconstruction. Front nine fairways are being replaced for next season, so they are letting them die. No slice or draw holds the fairway. Everything rolls out. Like hitting on cement. Ball bounced so high, we thought it hit the cart path, but the path was on the other side! Approached to greens were green and sponge like, so the contrast made play difficult to figure out.

Back nine played fair, better signage Needs improvement.

My favorite

This is one of my favorite courses in SW Florida. I was a little disappointed with a 9 hole replay rate of $45 however. That's about what I pay for an 18 hole replay elsewhere. I'll be limiting the amount I play there from now on concidering I like to play 36 holes most days but I still highly recommend this course.
