Enjoyable round

Terrific course—very forgiving but the greens are challenging. We motored around in less than 4 hours. Just watch out for the crows on the back 9.

Very nice but

Esplanade was a new housing development east of Naples and well landscaped. Staff were very nice. Range hit into a lake. Had putting and chipping area.

The course was in good condition, fairways very generous, and they tried to give some undulation, but didn’t live up to my expectation as one of the top new golf courses to play in 2014 . They heavily trapped around greens and You had to have local knowledge to know where to put the ball on the greens, got tired of missing putts I felt I should have had. Wasn’t good enough to want to come back. Lacking in trees as this was cleared for development and houses align every fairway.

If you live there I’m sure you would enjoy it and learn the greens and where to place shots.

Have played this course 3 years in a row while visiting SW Florida. Always an excellent experience. Excellent, friendly staff, excellent course conditions (greens were at 10.5), played in 4 hours. Would recommend for all levels of golfers.

My only complaint is there are no shade trees near the tee boxes or greens. Whoever designed this course must not have played golf in south Florida in the middle of summer!!!!

Tough Course

The course was fancy, but with deep rough and wet fairways, it was a tough round. We were in a tournament so play was slower, more shots due to not being able to get it out of the rough. Carts do have GPS, which is good. Since this was my first time playing it, I will come back and play it again. But it is almost 50 miles from my house, so need to make sure I won't get rained out.

Very Nice Course

This was a very nice course. It wasn't too hard, wasn't too easy. Plenty of tee boxes the fairways were good size and the greens were in good shape. The course was well taken care of oh, the people are nice at the bag drop and in the Pro Shop. I don't really have anything bad to say about the course.

Very Nice Course

I plan on a Saturday afternoon. It looks like the greens were aerated about 3, 3 and 1/2 half weeks ago. Are in good shape. The tee boxes were excellent and so are the fairways. The course was not overly difficult or very easy. A lot of dog legs left and right. Water on most of the course but does not come into play much unless you hit it wild. Rolling Fairways , and the greens we're not that fast but with the undulations were not that easy to putt on but not overly difficult. Definitely would be back. The people in the Pro Shop, bag drop, cart guys were all really nice.

not really worth the money we paid

course is in good shape - even the greens. BUT - only 6 minutes from flight to flight is not enough! We had a lot of waiting time. There is a lot of construction work around the course (new houses, etc.). That is very noisy and disturbing.

Great Course

Course was in very good condition. Wide, generous fairways, very well manicured, interesting layout and overall a fair challenge. Green speed was just over 10. What you see is what you get!...no hidden trouble. However, the course is a little in the pricey side, but reportedly only $39 in the summer.
