Owner description: 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.

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.

Excited to play the course after reading about all the improvements. Almost nothing has changed except higher rates. Too bad.

After a lot of neglect, the new owners have been working hard to bring the facility up to its potential as a desirable Island course. The Pro Shop and adjoining restaurant have undergone total renovation. The grounds crew have made a lot of improvements on the course itself. The greens and tee boxes can still use some extra care and attention, but given the actions of the new owners, Drew and Ed who always seem to be on hand, these should also continue to show improvement. It's a nicely designed and enjoyable course to play, challenging and still fun.

I shot the course over a period of three days and after reading a few reviews I was intrigued to find out why the negativity surrounds this course. First and foremost I want to say "Thank You" to the new owners of Beachview Golf and Tennis Club for your hospitality and enabling me to come back after being rained out to enjoy another outing. Beachview is now under new management (owners) and vastly improved according to local shooters. Second, I enjoyed the course and staff members hospitality along with the courteous attitudes. Last but not least is my third point shouting out a hearty Congratulations to the new owners for taking on this expensive challenge and putting up with the rotten weather and rain making it tough to keep everything trim and dry. Just to let you know, I'll be back for more and looking forward to seeing the course in the near future. Oh, one more item, the club house is going to be awesome when complete!

Gentlemen I bid you good luck in your new adventure and wish you the best.

Kind regards from Tampa!

This course had been permitted to really deteriorate in quality under the previous owner. The new owners have made great strides in turning it around. It has a great layout--lots of challenging holes and provides a lot of nature to view as you ponder your last shot. And the new owners are not finished. Many improvements continue. The new owners are very professional, friendly, offer great lessons and provide a great golf atmosphere.
It now is a must play for anyone visiting Sanibel.

This is a friendly welcoming golf course and fun to play. The two teaching Pros that own it understand how to create a pleasant experience. They constantly improve the course and facilities and are genuinely nice guys. I love this course. It is just challenging enough to be playable for the average golfer and has enough variety in the holes to not be boring for the low handicapper. This course is a real value and my only concern is it may be "discovered" and become too popular! I am a snow bird and member of this course for a number of years.
