Great Value

Fairways in good condition. Guessing greens were aerated a couple weeks ago. Got around as a single in 3hrs (12:30 tee time). Straight forward course. FYI-Black Tees 70.4/125 White tees 64.9/101. Will definitely be back.

Best Course played in SW Florida

Tee to green, this course was the nicest we played in the Fort Myers area. Great layout, true greens, plush fairways, all with no houses and no side by side holes, abundance of wildlife and a complimentary Raptor hat! Extremely friendly staff as well.

Nice course. Nice round.

Really enjoyed my round at Raptors Bay. Staff was helpful and friendly. Course was in good shape. Some wet areas in the fairway from all the rain. Greens weren’t perfect but were rolling true though slow. Fairways were generous which was nice cause if you missed by much you weren’t going to find your ball. Overall I had a really nice time. I’d definitely recommend and will be back on my next visit.

Great Value

The fairways and tee boxes are in great shape. The rough appears easy to hit out of, but it does affect your approach shots - in my opinion, the proper amount of penalty for missing the fairway. The greens have recently been over-sanded (or something similar) but they are rolling true.

The pace of play was great today but it was a somewhat awkward lineup. Two groups in front of me as a threesome, followed by a twosome, I was part of a twosome (7:32 tee time), and then a single was behind my group. In any event we finished the round in 3:15.

Greens are still recovering from maintenance which I know is necessary. I just think the fairways and greens could have been better. On the positive side, the meal at Braxton's was "really" good. I know that if we go there again I will eat at Braxton's again. All three of us felt the meal was GREAT!!! The pro-shop folks were excellent and it's a well-run organization from top to bottom!

Another great day at RBGC

Course was in great condition. The greens were in great shape.
Play it was a little slow, but that is to be expected this time of year. Green fees as always very manageable.
