Fast greens and dense foliage along manicured fairways .

Despite heavy summer rains fairways and greens were firm and fast. Some casual water was evident on a few fairways and along the edges of some fairways in low spots. The cold, wet towels provided were in addition to the dry towels that were also provided. Do not drive to Marco Island as this course is one of two located in Fiddlers Creek, a gated community about 5 miles east of the Marco Island bridge.

great course but member attitudes

First class course and facilities. But members demanding not to be paired with a single, making the total experience not very good. Even though the staff made all efforts, you do not feel welcome. This will kill the game.....

Must play

Wow. This was a real diamond in the rough. Well worth the drive. Staff was crazy good from beginning to end. I felt like a rock star here. Great range and practice area. Thanks for the complimentary balls. The ice cold towels at the start of the round and the turn was a nice touch. Also the scent of strawberry-kiwi in the towels showed great dedication to the details. Lots of drinking water and ice machines throughout the course. Course was in perfect condition through and through. Could not ask for anything more. Not an overly difficult course. Fun to play. Really enjoyed my round. Surprised they are not getting more play. Lots of birds from the preserve. Just a wonderful experience. I went back a few days later because I had such a great experience.

Outstanding Staff

The great experience starts from the time your bag is dropped to the 19th hole. The starter paired up the singles as soon as I arrived at the practice range. The range is in excellent condition. The very large practice green even had putting aids to use. The fairways and greens are in near perfect condition and the sand traps are well maintained. Golf Now makes this course a great value.

Very nice practice facility. Fairways are in excellent condition. Greens run true but are very firm. Excellent staff. Lunch menu was very good. I enjoyed my round, challenging but enough tee locations for every skill level.

Great Course

The course was in amazing shape. It was a difficult course if you didn't keep your shots straight. Very light rough so the hazards are easy to find your ball rolling into the water. Overall the course is worth the money.

Prepare to get wet

Terrific course. There is lots of water but the holes are fair with multiple tees to choose from. We played on a hot day but there was lots of water available for us. The greens were very fast and were in great shape but still concrete hard. Lots of wildlife around and a beautiful setting. Best gps in cart that I have encountered thus far. Don't miss out on playing this course.

Played here a few weeks ago and the greens were recovering, so went back yesterday to try again and the greens were still poor. Inconsistent speeds and harder than concrete. Besides this the layout is average, no memorable holes. The sister course at Hammock Bay is in a different league in all categories, shame its closed for summer.

Over Priced for Current Condition

This was the third course in 3 days and certainly in the poorest condition. The head pro called the course hard and fast, we called it green concrete. I understand that fairways are dormant in February but the greens were pool table hard and fast. Irons into the green did not hold our leave ball marks. Chipping was non-existent, rather putting from 20 yards out was the strategy. I suspect on a sunny day in May this course is probably worth $180, but in February it is a $100 course. Otherwise the layout is spectacular and the pace of play was right at 4 hours.

Great Course

Played it days after the major renovation, everything was in PERFECT condition, not overly crowded, played in 3 1/2 hours. Every hole is fun to play and there are many picturesque holes. Great course for $100, and $45 for juniors.
