Distinctive courses with extraordinary views can be yours when you golf Naples Florida. The scenery, weather, and abundant number of courses makes Naples a real hotbed for golf.

There are two ways that most visitors can enjoy golf in Naples. Both resort courses and semi-private courses are open to the public.

The large resort hotels offer golf as part of your vacation experience. The Ritz Carlton, LaPlaya, Edgewater Beach and the Naples Grande Beach Resort all offer first class golf near the hotel. The Beach Club Hotel has its course on site.

If you are not staying at one of the above, ask your hotel about access to one of the many semi-private courses that are open to the public. These courses are numerous and offer a wonderful golfing experience. Try a different one each day!

Naples is host to many world-class private golf courses, but they are private. Unless you know a member, you will not be able to get on. Also, surprisingly, there is not a county or municipal course in Naples.

The weather is near perfect year-round for outdoor activities however, summer afternoons get steamy making it a good idea to schedule your golf game in the early morning or late afternoon.

If you decide to live in Florida and you are a golfer, Naples is the place for you. There are many golf course communities for your consideration. Some require a membership but not all. Either way, a fairway or green-side view from your lanai is a beautiful enhancement to your property.

There is no shortage of places to upgrade or replace your equipment. All the major golf retailers are represented in Naples. Of course your pro shop can supply anything you may need.
