Thank you for spending the day with us. The Black Course was remastered last year, so the greens are a little bit slower than the greens on The Gold Course. By this time next year both courses will be the same speed. Thank you again for coming down to Naples and we look forward to showing you The Gold Course soon!

Tiburon Black

Lived up to expectations - and beyond. Staff was incredibly nice, friendly, and fun, from the greeting upon arrival through the pro shop to the after round drinks at Sydney's Pub. The course itself was in immaculate condition, with the greens and fairways in as good a condition as any I've played in South Florida in the last few months. Tough layout not for the faint of heart, but certainly rewards good shots. Don't miss the opportunity to play if you have the chance.

Tiburon-Black course

On my birthday I decided to treat myself and play Tiburon Black course. It was cool and windy. The other 2 people that I was paired up with were a no show. I started out on my own and at the 4th hole caught up with a couple as caught up with a 4some with forecaddy. It was a waiting game. The couple gave up after the 14th hole. We were always behind the pace time according to the gps on the carts. I would have hated what it would have been like without a caddy. The course was in great shape. The greens firm and fast. I found it easy to get around and not hit into something hidden. I would seriously consider playing, but not in an absolute must. All of the practice facilities and the the stall were great.

Difficult but fair Greg Norman test

First off, playing this golf course from the back tees would be insane, even if you hit the ball a mile. Why? Because you're going to have to be able to thread your drivers and probably work the ball both ways,. You're better off playing this course with clubs other than the driver off the tee if you can. There are quite a few holes where a hybrid or a long iron off the tee is the more prudent play. Of the two courses at Tiburon, this one is definitely tighter. With that said, I do think it's a little better than the Gold because it's more interesting. And when it gets a renovation this year -- adding the really cool synthetic sodwall bunkers -- it'll definitely be better. The reason is that the Black course is more interesting than the Gold, but only marginally. They compliment each other well.

Mike, thank you so much for sharing your comments with us. The Black Course is much tighter than the Gold, and we are glad you liked the Durabunker treatment on the Gold. We are remastering the Black Course later this year, but will not be using Durabunker. We will be making the bunker faces lower and moving bunkers closer to the green to provide a greater difference between the two courses. Again, thank you for your comments and we hope to see you in Naples again soon!

VG condition - punishing course

When I book Tiburon Black on golf now I was concerned about the conditions based on previous reviews. I called the course and they assured me the issues that were discussed are now resolved. They were correct, the course was in great condition and we had a great round of golf. The course itself is very difficult for a beginner, tough on an intermediate and rewarding for a very good golfer.

Thank you for reading these reviews and for giving us a chance. Troon came in on September 1, and the Gold Course was recently remastered. The Black Course is being remastered this year, so come November, we will have 36 holes of brand new championship golf. Thanks again for coming out and for leaving such a positive review of your experience.

Ritz Carlton golf

Beautiful course excellent design and condition. Expensive but worth it during high season. Holes challenging and give different options to play. Greens perfect and fast. Ritz service always first class. The starter John was quite professional , courteous, and pleasant. Definitely will be back to play.

Expectations not met

After seeing this course on TV several times my expectations were high, but in person it looked awful, the greens were patchy and discolored, found out the next day it was a fungus. I arranged for our foursome and was embarrassed to say the least. Saving grace was we did not pay full price as my dad hooked us with a reciprocal off season rate. Consensus was if we paid $250 we would have asked for our money back. Golf shop and restaurant were closed when we finished at 6:30. Fairways are crowned you have to be in center or you roll into " hard pan of crushed shells" this scratched clubs

Damaged greens beyond repairs

Do not waste your money playing this course. All their greens are damaged beyond repairs. They are slow, bumpy and on some holes downright disgusting with bad patch worked or sanded over to over the damaged area. We played in the tournament and if we know ahead of time, we would switch to play the other course at Tiburon instead. We were never told of the greens conditions until we got there. Albeit friendliness of the staff and apologies of the horrific conditions, the course should charge us a lot less than what we ended up paying for. Also, for the top notch resort associated with Greg Norman (Tiburon means shark in Spanish) and Ritz Carlton, they should do everything they can to satisfied their customers. We are beyond disappointment with the Black course conditions.

Abysmal value

Among the most expensive courses in SW Florida at $250 per round. I've seen much better greens on $25 muni courses. Several greens were unplayable. Staff claimed greens were rolling 8 on stimp but true speed likely closer to 6-7 if you had a rare line unobstructed by damage. Charging top dollar for greens this poor is almost criminal. I wouldn't return at any price despite friendly staff and Ritz ambiance. .

The course was ok, but much less than I expected. I played last year and it seemed much better then. I guess for 200.00 I was expecting pristine conditions. The fairways had alot of thin spots and sanded spots on greens. I bragged to my friends all week who were coming to play. They were not impressed and I was eating crow. They want to play Lely Mustang and TPC Treviso next year. Traviso was Awesome for a few 50.00 more. I think 99.00 in season and 59.00 off season would make this course make this course stand out among the medium priced courses, but not in the same leage as Treviso HWSL

First off, thank you for spending the day with us and for sharing your honest feedback on your experience. However, it sounds like we dropped the ball on a few things. Did you know we recently remastered the Gold Course and plan to remaster the Black Course next year? The LPGA and PGA TOUR players loved it this year during the CME Group Tour Championship and the Franklin Templeton Shootout. Thanks again for your review, and we hope to see you again soon. We want to turn that review from 2 to 5 stars!
