If convenience is your priority
The greens fees are to be expected for a vacation location. You get the convenience of not having to leave the island to play. For the money, however, you would expect better tee box grooming, ball washers, and greens not burnt out. Looks are more in line with an overplayed public course.
Beautiful flora and fauna
The iguanas were the best.... a great play... only thing wrong was the heavy traffic across the bridge 45 min wait.... but the staff was very accommodating.
Course conditions have improved since 2018. Still have a ways to go but they are making nice progress. Excellent pace of play, under 4 hours.
Since last year the greens and tee boxes grass improved as well as the Fairwys. This course is a work in progress by dedicated owners. Rescuing a treasure, long term project. Recommend playing here. Challenge for all the clubs in your bag
Pass on this course
I was looking forward to playing this course, but really disappointed, no driving range, poor putting green and no chipping area.
Course was in OK condition, except for the greens, some bad patches and the hole looked like it hadn't been changed in 2 weeks. For the the price it was a $50 course at best. I expected much better, I give it a pass.
Much improved over last year
I see there is a recent review involving the condition of this course, I have played this course multiple times a year for a matter of years and this trip provided the best conditions yet. Still some work to be done, some greens had some damage and a few GUR in the fairways, but compared to last year they have made some significant strides. I was very impressed. No, there is not a driving range. If you want one on the island, you will have to go to the aqua range where you essentially are working off of feel. The chipping and putting green was great in my opinion, that was where I noticed the changes immediately. A few less trees on the back 9 provides some more water views, I saw the crocodile on the tee box of 3 which was pretty cool, staff continues to be top of the line. Very nice people who are genuinely glad to see you at their course, they appreciate the business and there is something to be said for that. I really enjoy this course, Not the longest track ever but 6000 is respectable, especially for being on the island. A few houses being worked on and built provided for some noise but there is only so much anyone can do about that. Give it a shot, I love running around this track.
Great people fun course. Eagled 17 birdied 18!
Go for it have fun.
All three golfers had a great time on the course. All the holes were different and fun to play. The greens were excellent and rolling true. The staff were very friendly and helpful. A great value for the money. We will be back soon.
Bad greens - foul smell !
I did not like the quality nor the speed of the greens! Big differences from green to green.Most disturbing was the fact that the sprinklers were running while going through the halfwayhouse and we could not avoid to drive through the spray of smelly water!
Sanibel Island Golf Club
Course is in good shape. Challenging but still fun. Very friendly staff.
Glad I chose to play this course. Past reviews by others do not represent current condition of course.
Not too much water
Have played this course a number of times over the last 3 years... they have put in some improvements and the wildflowers are very pretty. Tee boxes still in relatively poor shape and the fairways were pretty stressed out from the unusually dry winter. If you are looking for a nice round of golf and can get a discount on their rack rate -- not a bad course to play -- especially when its not too busy.
This course is a “must play” when visiting Sanibel Island. Beautiful course with a challenging layout. I really enjoyed all the Florida wildlife on the course. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Even though they called it the “off season”, the greens and fairways where in perfect condition.
Way over priced for what it is.
Super friendly staff. Would never say anything but great things about the staff. The course was really disappointing however. Fairways were junk and the greens were worse.
Better Than Expected
Before traveling to Florida, like most people I was looking at the different courses and reading reviews. I saw many negative reviews about Sanibel Island Golf Course and was concerned, but since we were staying on the island, I decided to give it a go. Quite honestly, the course was in pretty good shape. Some burn spots on the greens, but really did not impact how the greens rolled. Us northerners come to Florida and expect these perfect lush golf courses, probably unfair expectation for early March, but the truth is Sanibel Island was a lot better than most courses up north in March and it was a windy 70 degree day. A bit pricey especially since there is no driving range and no drinkable water on the course. But, I'll play it again some day. I liked the layout of the course and the people were great.
Fun casual island course
Low key place with friendly service in the pro shop. Course condition was OK but could use a little more water to green it up. Also need some amenities on the course, at least some water. Count on some traffic during the season. Easy to get to and would recommend for all golfers.
