Florida's Heron Creek tops Power Rankings for the week of Dec. 1

This week, the splendor of southwest Florida golf will be on display for the Franklin Templeton Shootout in Naples, and it comes as little surprise that a collection of area courses topped this week's Power Rankings.

Just north of the Naples hotbed, 27-hole Heron Creek Golf & Country Club in North Port topped the list in overall and conditions categories. Meanwhile, nearby Stoneybrook Golf Club in Estero (near Old Corkscrew) also made the list.

Here are the rest of the top-rated courses of the week as reviewed by GolfAdvisor users in overall, value and conditions categories.

(Editor's Note: Courses needed a minimum of five ratings for the week to qualify, ties are broken by cumulative scores in sub-categories.)
