“Good Donald Ross course in need of some TLC”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

This Donald Ross course is a quality layout and has a good mix of holes. Rates are good for the area, and walking is encouraged. The course being almost totally flat is very easy to walk. The conditioning of the course was somewhat disappointing. As usual DR greens can be challenging to score on. The Greens were quite firm and in some cases reluctant to hold approach shots, the speed of the greens were very fast to a few that were inconsistent. The fairways are very sparse and tight lies were definitely the norm. Scoring was very difficult in these conditions. Hopefully with some rain and good maintenance the overall course conditions will improve soon, the layout is classic DR design.

“Don't go here”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

This course is in terrible shape. the grass is dead.. weeds every where... you may as well be golfing in the parking lot the ground is so hard. the club house is nice looking.. you would think they could water?? I wouldn't pay a dime to golf here again... if they would've offered a free round we wouldn't take it. absolutely aweful.

“Nice public course”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

Great staff. Prices are very reasonable, even during tourist season. Course if flat and easily walkable. Tee boxes and greens are relatively close to each other.

“An old Gem by Donald Ross”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

If you love the history of Golf as well as the game itself you should try Fort Myers CC. It was designed by Donald Ross around 1917 and the course has withstood the test of time. It's only 6500 yards from the back tee's, but because of the small greens and lightly contoured surfaces putting is tricky. It's one of the few golf courses in SW Florida that allows you to walk any time of day and it is very affordable even in season. There are no houses on the interior of the course and you really get the feel of how the game once was. I will go back again and again.

“Golfing”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

Flat course that is very easy to walk. Interesting course but need to know how to hit the ball off thin fairways that has sand base.
