“Poor”
Reviewed May 11, 2012

We have been to Tiburon for the last 5 years on our annual golf trip, it became a highlight of our trip until yesterday
When we went to the club house they found our 9.30 and 9.40 tee times had been deleted from the system,we were then booked to play at 10.10 and 10.20 on the resort course which was the black course, no one in the pro shop explained why we had our times deleted and also the course change.
It seems like any hotel guest will have priority over any golfer
The starter and the locker guy were great but sadly they were let down by the others.
We were very disappointed with the greens there had been a lot of patching because of problems earlier in the year.
We have played Raptor Bay, Pelican Perserve and Bonita Bay East which were all in a lot better condition

Gary, allow me to apologize for your experience. That is not what we strive for, and it appears we dropped the ball. This review was left in 2012, but we still want to discuss it with you. Please email rpotts@troon.com so we can learn more. Since your visit Troon has started managing the course and we have remastered the Gold Course. We are doing the same to the Black Course this year. Our course conditions are better than ever. The LPGA and PGA TOUR players were raving about it last year during their annual golf tournaments here. Again, please email us so we can learn more and invite you back for an experience that you deserve. Thanks again for sharing your feedback with us and we look forward to hearing from you soon.

“Hotel guests the priority. Holders come second”
Reviewed May 10, 2012 via mobile

Arrivefd to find not only had they moved our tee time by 40 minutes without even the courtesy of informing us but also changed the course. Appears that I'd a hotel guest wants a game on the temple ton shoot house course they come first. State of the course allocated very poor greens especially first five holes. Will I play there again NO. Pelican, Bonita Bay, and Raptor all far better condition and service. Avoid and contribute towards making them consider golfers first

“Not good timing”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

I'm sure the course is typically in good shape but when we were there they had hosted a tournament which affected the grounds but then their wells got salt in them and the greens were burnt up to the point that they were spray painted green and more than half had patches of sod they had replaced. We played in the afternoon so there was a discount for that but not for the condition of the course, nor were we forewarned.

“Greg Norman golf”
Reviewed March 29, 2012

Ritz hotel. Greg Norman course. What's not to like? Pretty and challenging course. Pricey in season. Reasonable in summer. Check it out.

“Good Course - Over Priced”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

Put Greg Norman's name on it and add the PGA tour and you take a good $75 course and make it $200. It's a wonderful layout but come on, $200 for one round of golf? This is what's wrong with golf in America. You can play the old course at St. Andrew's for less.

As you know, Greg Norman designed both courses at Tiburón Golf Club. Both the LPGA and PGA TOUR host events here, and last year we remastered the Gold Course. This year we are remastering the Black Course. It has been a few years since you were here. Since then Troon has started managing the property, too. We would like to have you back out to see the changes. Please email rpotts@troon.com the next time you are in Naples. Thanks again for your support!
