Located just off of the shores of Southwest Florida, Sanibel Island is home...

Located just off of the shores of Southwest Florida, Sanibel Island is home to some of the area's best resorts, real estate, and recreation. Known for its gorgeous views of the Gulf of Mexico, Sanibel Island's incredible natural setting makes it the perfect atmosphere to enjoy the game of golf. Today's featured course, Sanibel Island Golf Club, plays like a championship course should: challenging each aspect of your game throughout a fabulous 18-hole layout. Rated 69.9, measuring a slope of 129, and lush with indigenous wildlife, it is truly one of the finest playing experiences in the Sunshine State.

Playing just over 6,000 yards from the back tees, Sanibel Island Golf Club's semi-private layout is an uncompromising tropical paradise perfect for the player of any skill or ability level. Each hole brings with it picturesque views, natural challenge, and ideal conditions to play your best golf. Proper course management and shot execution are a must on Sanibel Island, as the beauty throughout can quickly turn into hazards and difficulty. With forced carries over water, cleverly placed bunkers, well protected greens, and a vast array of abundant wildlife, a round at Sanibel Island Golf Club is everything you want - and more.

Like most great golf facilities, the course at Sanibel Island is just one aspect of this incredible destination. Make sure to check out the golf shop which carries a variety of apparel and equipment that'll help improve your performance and your look. Sanibel Island Golf Club is also home to the Sanibel Island Tennis Club featuring state-of-the-art Hyrdo-Grid Tennis Courts that'll make you feel like a pro. After your day of the fun, the Blue Coyote Supper Club is the perfect place to grab a great meal, a delicious drink, and toast your scores.

Beautiful weather, a gorgeous setting, and an tremendous facility, let Sanibel Island Golf Club play host to your next great round of golf.

Sanibel Island Golf Club has made major improvements on the course. Sand spoil has been added around the tee boxes creating a great look and feel. Native plantings in the spoil add to the look and patches of wildflowers create great visuals at many places around the course. As for the course itself, the greens are much improved and clearly...

Played today and had a great time. The course is in good shape even after all the rain they have had. I liked the way they incorporate the seaside feel of a Florida course. The staff was outstanding--counter and cart boys. Finishing off with a meal at The Blue Coyote was a great treat!! Can't wait to play it again!!

Whenever I'm in the Sanibel Island area, I like to play golf at the Sanibel Island Golf Club. The reception is always upbeat and positive. The course is fun to play and challenging for my wife and myself. The wildlife is amazing. We see pileated woodpeckers, wood storks, ibis, curlew, great blue herons, alligators, osprey and their nests, hawks, iguana,... More

Played Sanibel Country Club, it was disgusting, not only green fees being $95 which is expected in FL in the winter months. Do not waste you time or money, you will be disappointed!

My husband and I played here several times this month and were always appreciative of the friendly staff eager to enhance our experience. The course supports a variety of ability levels. We decided to take advantage of the 10-visit pass, which made it more affordable. The managers are doing a terrific job - John and Linda
