A Great Resort Golf Course

I played Raptor Bay for thee first time today, I traditionally play south of Naples when I am staying in South West Florida , but I decided to venture up to Bonita Springs for a round today. The course was beautiful, previously a Hotel resort course. It has wide fairways , large greens no traps around the greens., but the course has a fabulous layout and the staff are very friendly/ accommodating. I had a great day, ( as long as you are driving the ball well you will love this course). This is the challenge of this course, there is occasional water that comes into play in the fairways as you would expect with traditional Florida venues but you need to hit it large to play the black tees. I loved the experience and I usually play more difficult designed courses. Play this course. Thank you Raptor Bay for a great day.

A pleasing round

first group out and the course was perfect. the greens look like astro-turf, they are so perfect. there is water on the course, but it doesn't really come into play. there are animals on this course. i saw an iguana, a gator, a wild hog, a rat and a lot of birds. The employees are very instructive and friendly. There is a snack shop that you will pass several times on your round. All in all a very pleasant place to play golf. I will play here again.

“Hard” course

It’s true the course isn’t easy. It’s a nice tight challenge. But what I really mean by “hard” is that the grass is hard. I expected the kind of soft turf you get at nice courses and this one had hard mud below the grass. Especially around the greens it grabbed your clubs. Made it so I couldn’t use my lob wedge around the greens. Also, no sand traps. Just cart path gravel that doubled as a bunker.

BEAUTIFUL

Came down here for vacation and this course came up. I’m always a bit hesitant on where to play, but people raved about this place and This place is BEAUTIFUL (not as pretty as my high draw though ;)). Certain a tee boxes were a bit patchy, but who cares? Greens were in great conditions. Whether you’re a FL resident or non-resident, this golf course should be a part of your schedule!

It is in immaculate shape

This course is in gorgeous condition. Tee boxes and greens are perfect. I swear we did not see one brown spot out there! Love that there are hardly any bunkers around greens!! But you can get into plenty of other trouble. Sunday round was about 4 1/2 hours.

Great Experience

We played first time last Sunday and we went today again. The course for to be public is in extremely in good conditions. There is another private golf clubs that they are not in a good shape like this. This is a very enjoyable for all handicaps, they don’t have sand traps but a lot of challenges that you need to pay attention where you gonna put your ball. I will recommend this golf course to anyone that wants to play a fair and beautiful Golf Course. Only problem today was an slow pace but we understand because Memorial Day it was a lot of visitors.
