Don’t use red golf balls

The guy who said not to use a red golf ball was on point. A black crow picked up my ball on front nine but dropped it. On back nine a crow took my ball. If you are vacationing on Sanibel and want an easier golf course this one will work. If you want more of a challenge try The Dunes. And if so bring plenty of balls.

Beautiful course and greens

We totally enjoyed playing on this beautiful course!
The greens have been redone and they are great!
The staff was very friendly and we enjoyed having a light lunch at the Blue Giraffe restaurant in the club house.
We would recommend golfing at this Sanibel course!

Crow Thief

First drive. Red golf ball in the middle of the fairway. Thinking “Well done”. Crow swoops down and steals my ball. My daughter and playing partner was laughing so hard she could hardly play. Check out the wildlife and don’t use a colored golf ball.

Really enjoyed the course. Great layout and beautiful property. Like playing in a tropical jungle with all of the wildlife, but didn't see any gators. Played from the white tees and shot 72. I would play from the blues the next time just to play a different course.

Course was in great shape considering it had rained recently, drained well. Short course, wish I had played from the blues. Will play again when I'm in Sanibel.

Sanibel Island Golf Club

Wow. Sanibel Island Golf Club is beautiful and the staff is super friendly and helpful. This course was closed for two months while they completely redid the greens and the result is a spectacular golf course, surrounded by nature, on a beautiful island. If you played it before and were disappointed, you will not be disappointed when you play it now. In my opinion, it is now one of the best courses in the area and I am an avid golfer who plays 4 days a week. Not only is the course in great shape, but you will get excellent service in the pro shop. Kudos to everyone that brought this course back to being #1 on my list of best golf courses around. We were the first golfers on the tee this morning when they reopened and already have our tee times booked for the weekend.

Greens were horribly damaged and impossible to putt on, should have mentioned when I booked. Paid $110 for the round and felt completely ripped off.

Fun course

This Sanibel course is challenging and full of local wildlife. The staff is friendly and accommodating.
The layout is interesting with each hole isolated from any other holes. The only problem is that several of the greens are in poor condition and probably should be redone. With that correction it would be an outstanding course, and despite that problem I play this course 5-6 times a year.
