Must Do!

I try to make it to Naples at least once each year to play some of Naples great courses. Tiburón is a must do every year. Course conditions excellent, the layout, and the price in the summer, especially twilight.

I mean when it starts to rain and you sit in your cart and watch live PGA golf! Can’t beat that!!

Greg Norman didn't use rough when he designed The Gold Course. Come back and play the newly remastered Black Course. He did use rough on that layout. We have 36 holes here and look forward to seeing you again soon! Thank you for keeping us top of mind while you are in SW Florida.

First time playing since reconditioning

Have played this course many times since it opened. I was positively impressed by the condition of the greens and course overall after all of the work done this past year, not to mention Hurricane Irma.

Very playable tour course

After a renovation last summer and fall, the Gold Course at Tiburon, home of the LPGA Championship and Greg Norman's Franklin-Templeton Shootout, is even more fun with new bunkering, new Tif-Eagle greens and general all-around improvements. Easier than the Black Course, there's plenty of room on most holes to hit driver and you can score out here if you play the right tees. The most beautiful enhancement, though, has to be the new Durabunkers, which have synthetic sod walls and give the course a certain Scottish look. The bunkers themselves require far less maintenance, too. As one of the few public options in the area, the Gold is worth checking out, even though it does come at a premium price.

The Gold Course is better than ever, and we are glad you enjoyed your round. Those bunkers are great, and provide a good target on a few holes. We are glad you got the chance to experience the Gold Course, and we look forward to seeing you in Naples again soon.

Interesting layout in good condition

A friend and I played the course at around 1 pm on a Monday. It was a little windy but otherwise very pleasant. The staff was very kind and accommodating throughout the day. The course was in great condition, greens, tees and fairways were all perfect. The greens were rolling at about a 9 on the stimp I would guess. We waited on most holes but that was only because we were a 2-some; the round took around 4 hours 15 minutes. I would recommend going out later when the price drops and it is less busy. Also, disregard the reviews before 2016 because that is before the course was re-done. Overall great experience!

I've played a lot of resort courses and this rates really well.

Tiburon rates high on my list of places to play. You can't beat southwest Florida weather in February and the facilities are 1st rate. The course was in excellent condition. i recommend that you put this on your list of places to play.

Absolutely beautiful

Excellent course and layout. All the grass was pristine. Not sure why people gave this place a poor review in the past. I can not find anything negative to report. PS. This place has the largest squirrel species I've ever seen. Played from the back tees and really enjoyed the round. Forcaddie was awesome as well.

Over rated and priced

Course was in poor condition, which would have been nice to know before we booked! Probably caused by conditions but came away and really could not recall any hole that I said "wow great hole" Clubhouse is outstanding which is sad that is the lone positive I can say about tiburon gold

It sounds like we dropped the ball in regards to playing conditions. We are sorry to hear that, and apologize for the condition of the course. That being said, we recently remastered the Gold Course and will be doing the same on the Black Course next year. Please email rpotts@troon.com so we can learn more about your experience. Again, we are sorry to hear and look forward to speaking with you soon.

conditiins

The staff was super friendly and the clubhouse is awesome but the driving range turf was awful the balls were awful and the putting green and the gold course greens had a turf disease and no one informed us of the poor conditions and for the price you pay for this course I expect the conditions to be much better they could have discounted the price

Thank you for spending the day with us and for leaving such a positive review. If you played in 4 hours, you were ahead of pace. We love hearing that! Since your round, we have fully remastered the Gold Course and will soon be doing the same to the Black Course. The greens are as good, and as fast as ever! We hosted the LPGA and PGA TOUR earlier this year and everyone was raving about the course. Thanks again, and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
