I ended up on the Gold course which was ok. Ritz maintenance and management is a good thing for the most part. I thought the traps needed a fill and to be dragged in the morning, so that was my only real complaint. The club house staff was definatly up to Ritz Carleton standards. They had aerrated about 2 weeks ago, so the greens were dog slow and weren't breaking as much as I was reading, which was in stark contrast to the putting green. I don't regularly play golf in Florida, so the wind took some getting used to. Even when the tree tops aren't showing much wind, there is plenty of wind in play. I was coming up 2 clubs short all through the front 9, until I adjusted.

I have to say, this is the second Norman design I have played and I am not a fan of his work so far. There wasn't a single memorable hole on the Gold course at Tiburon. Other than 3-4 really stunning holes at Mayakoba, there was nothing memorable about that place either. I would guess that if Mayakoba wasn't right on the ocean, there would be nothing to remember about it either.

Thank you for spending time with us and for leaving such an honest review. It has been over 10 years since your visit, both golf courses have been remastered, and we think you would change your mind on the playing conditions and the memorable holes. Come back down to Naples and visit. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

First time visiting the Ritz Carlton Golf Resort 7/18-7/23. The staff at both the hotel and the golf club could not do enough for you. Gold course was in excellent shape. Black course was in good shape, not as good as the gold. Will definitely be back.
