“great course”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Very good lay out harder than it looks on the cards. Think twice before playing from the blue, especially if it'windy. We played it for $90 and it worth it.

“Great value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

I played this course last year, twice here, twice at the dunes and once in Fort Myers. The reviews on trip adviser almost kept my wife and I from even trying it. I'm glad we did, it is a better track than the Dubes, however the upkeep was terrible. I was glad to hear it was under new ownership, I expected better and was not dissapointed. Drew, Ed and Gene made me feel like I was playing at a private club. You could already see the improvements on the short time they have owned it. The wildlife is abundant, gators eagles, snakes and other wildlife were around everyday. Don't take my word for it, check it out yourself!

“Overpriced and in poor condition.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

Very disappointing. Paid almost $100 for a round and had to quit early. Six hours through 14 holes as the course was full of retirees and beginners. There was a backup on ten of three threesomes of women with a twosome in the fairway and another foursome on the green all at the same time. The greens were part sand and very long. Horrible conditions.

“great course”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

This is the first time playing golf on Sanibel and I was quite impressed with the great condition of the course as well as the way we were treated. On of the owners greeted us with a cart and was more than gracious.
The course was laid out very nicely and had a variety of animals to see. For a northern person it was an experience seeing gators swimming around as well as Igunas and snakes crawling in the trees. For a moment I thought I was at the Darling sanctuary.
The clubhouse was very neat and tidy and the food choices were good.
I would go back in the future.
