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.

Vacation golf

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.
