“Good Golf Course - Very Rude Starter - making it a bad experience”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Great golf course too bad the Started was such a rude individual. He screamed - I mean screamed- at me for hitting my ball from 200 yds away while the group(slow) in front of us were on the green. Really! I cant even hit my driver that far not to mention my 5 wood. Not only that but at one point he actually stopped our cart to tell us that our friend had an attitude problem...she asked where the 10th tee box as we had stopped briefly after 9 holes ..and was lectured by him about stopping off at the snack bar (the group behind were 3 holes back and not at the 10th tee yet) He made us wait until they teed off! He also told us he had no problem with women (really who asked?) and when he was a kid he preferred to plays with his sisters and their dolls instead of toy soldiers. Like we cared. We were 3 women and played the first 9 in 1 hour 20 mins - yes we play fast so should never have seen the Starter so often during play.
Personally I will not go back there again.

“Nice golf course-rude member”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

We looked forward to a nice golf outing during a recent convention in Naples. The gentleman who drove us to the range was very informative and kind. When we were ready to tee off, a member, very rudely interrupted us. He questioned our tee time and actually told us to "wait, don't tee off until,I call the pro shop". Not a very nice welcome. The course was very pretty with plenty of water!

“A Very Nice Golf Club”
Reviewed 8 April 2012

It'd be nice if they had a real clubhouse, but this is a very nice golf course in a convenient location. Don't miss the bald eagles!
