Beautiful golf course, fast greens, well maintained, staff was extremely friendly, one of the hardest golf courses in Southwest Florida. Designed by Jack Nicholas. Great course

I have to admit this is one of the best public courses I have played in all my travels around the US. I play over 50 rounds a year and this course ranks up with some of the best courses you can play, especially for the money. The course is a good, fair, with a challenging lay-out, that rewards fairway... More

I wish I got to FL more so that I could play Old Corkscrew more. It really is a spectacular course. Always in excellent condition, VERY attentive staff and what a GREAT layout. I do have to disagree with some of the other reviews that talk about how difficult it is. Playing from the Blue tees is only 6600 yards... More

Sand traps raked and smooth. Fairways and greens were excellent especially since it was in July. Course is very difficult if you struggle at the T box. Seemed like the cart girl never left our side.

Only the good shots are rewarded. Some mediocre shots off the tees aren't severely penalized but everything else is. The greens aren't bad but approaches and chips must be played with precision or you will be looking at triple before you know it. It is a course to visit in southwest Florida but a little pricey.

One of the hardest courses I've played in the area! Long off the blue tees at 6600 yards and requires full attention to club selection even off the tee. Excellent condition with very undulating greens which were not running too fast on my visit. Water and bunkers come into play on many holes, so this is not a course for... More

My 15 year old son and I played this place this week--what a quality golf course. Everything about this place is good. I called to see how busy they were the next afternoon, mentioned a GolfNow rate I saw and the pro shop bettered it and we played at 3pm for twenty bones each. I don't think I've ever had... More

Jack Nicklaus dug way into his bag of tricks when he designed this course. It's full of risk/reward shots, waste areas, very large and many bunkers, undulating greens, and of course being in SW Florida-water. Today was my 5th time playing this great tract and finally bettered my handicap of 10. Folks this course will eat your lunch if you... More

No homes to worry about, just golf. Maybe the fairest Nicklaus Course I have played. Wide landing areas, but you really have to play to targets as every hole has at least one dogleg. Nice green complexes and great practice area. Try lunch out on the patio, too. Very nice.

Has to be one of the toughest courses I've ever encountered. I'm a 10 handicap and played this course from the whites: 6,222 yards, 72.0 / 144. I could have played the blue, the white is tough enough. A worker said that the designer, The Golden Bear shot 6 over in nine holes and left. I enjoyed my round and... More
