Good deal

Perfect for the average golfer. Great confidence builder for working the mid iron game. Greens were being aerated but still that probably helped

Ok course

I played this course a few days after Elsa went by.. Many fairways had extra puddles of water... But even without that water, the course is just in OK shape. Many of the greens need much work.

Nice Course

The fairways are in great shape. The greens are a little worn in spots but not enough to impact one’s round. The course has some of the smallest greens I have ever played.

Nature Lover's Course

What a nice place to spend a few hours. Birds, gators, jumping fish, iguanas, beautiful trees and flowers, you name it - you'll see it. This is a fun course. It's not too difficult, but it's not a walk in the park either. The conditions were great if not for a spotty patch here and there on the green - not a big problem. If you hit it straight you'll score. If you spray it you'll be wet. That simple. I read a review of a complainer. I'd suggest that person is missing the whole point. It's Sanibel not Kiawah.

The course is very challenging

The course had narrow fairways with a lot of water hazards. I will definitely play here again and would recommend this course to others.

Challenging and beautiful

The fairways and rough were in great shape. The greens were in good condition with a few that had several bad places on them. Overall really nice course with friendly staff. Most of the holes were very similar not much difference between them hole for hole. Mostly straight with water on either the left or right but. I would definitely play again.

Not a bad course

Not a bad course. It was challenging and had a great layout. Fairways were in great shape. Greens however needed some help.

I would play the course again though. The staff was nice and very helpful getting us going out first time there.

Decent course

Played in 20-25 MPH winds and it played long. Other than a couple of rough greens that were under repair it was a very enjoyable course, I’d play it again.

Island golf part 2

I played here a couple of years ago.....Man, what a difference. Owners and entire staff have transformed this golf course. They are still working on a few greens and fairways, but overall this course is in really great shape. The starter and club house staff were very friendly and helpful. I was paired with a couple of members, Chuck & Lisa that were preparing for a upcoming tournament. Great company, conversation and course knowledge.
When I return to Sanibel, this will be my first choice for golf on the Island.

Sanibel gem

Perfect conditions. Course was in great shape. Understand from local, course was not in good shape for a couple of years. It was in great shape when we played. The greens were good, not as fast as the grass was cut higher., because of the heat. Wouldn’t call it a “resort course” as it has som3 really challenging holes. A fun course to play, and the pace was 4 hours.

The other Public Sanibel course is the Dunes. Water everywhere. The pro told me the record of lost balls is 60 for a round. Hit it straight.

Worse than the $15 muni back home

This might be the worst conditioned course i've played in a long long time. There was no mention of green issues prior to arriving- showed up and there was so much sand on the greens there was no reason to putt the ball. Even if the greens didn't look like the bunkers except with shells they're really really really flat. Got paired with two nice enough guys who I don't think have ever broken 120. Very short course but longer than Dunes. Pretty boring day hitting hybrid and 4 iron off the tees leaving nothing more than a 9 iron in. #11 could be a par 3, and 18 is most certainly not a par 5. Definitely not worth $100+. Find somewhere else.
