If the opportunity ever comes your way to play Calusa Pines golf course.... Take off work, jump on a plane, make any deal with a loved one, just grab your clubs and get there ASAP. I actually never heard of the course until last month, couldn't really find any in-depth information on the Internet either, but every true golfer in Naples knows about it, and would love to get on their golf spikes on to their tee box's.
It's truly the Pine Valley of the south. From your first view of the club house you realize just how elegant this facility is, not over bearing or gaudy, just extremely tasteful.
The staff could not be more accommodating, and the caddies were a treat. (BTW If your caddie tells you to aim left or put your putt here, DO IT!) I'm a 6 handicap Pub links player, and beat our scratch pro. You have to love this game!
As you're playing your round you can't help but to admire how much detail went into making this course so spectacular. Every hole had its own personality, each green was fast yet fair. So many courses today have holes you would swear you just played, and greens that go from rock hard to mush. There are no tricks to this course. The only real trick was how they got all them hills onto a course in Florida, might just have the most elevations of any course in Florida. The other trick is finding out how to get on it!

  • Calusa Pines has been ranked as one of the top courses in the U.S. by Golf Magazine's panel of experts.

    Quietly situated behind rows of towering conifers, Calusa Pines is a rarity among Florida golf courses because it showcases some dramatic elevation changes to go along with lightning fast greens and creative bunkering.

    The long, dogleg-right par-5 4th hole is a brute with marsh running the length of the right side. Beware of the alligators that patrol the reeds below the tee box! The uphill, 310-yard par-4 6th tempts the longest hitters to try for the green, but a huge, deep bunker guards the front of the putting surface, so a mid-iron approach is the popular choice. The uphill 18th, a par 4, requires players to thread the needle between two of the deepest bunkers on the course.
