Courses The Naples Beach Golf Club
When you learn that an 11-year-old once shot par on The Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club’s 18-hole course, you can’t help but wonder how challenging that course is. But when you learn that the child in question was none other than future PGA legend Jack Nicklaus, you get a better idea of the quality of play. Today, some 67 years later, this Four Diamond resort’s championship golf course is better than ever. A year after its complete renovation by acclaimed course architect John Sanford in conjunction with Jack Nicklaus himself, the course remains challenging for all levels of play. While thorough, ongoing course maintenance keeps the course at peak playing levels year-round, a professional golf staff lets players elevate their golf experience to new heights. Whether golfers are looking for group or private lessons, scrambles and tournament organization, or expert advice on clubs and the game’s latest equipment and technologies, The Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club’s pro shop handles all requests. The golf course is public, but membership at The Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club affords players a number of benefits. These include unlimited play, discounted cart fees, and discounted greens fees for accompanying guests. Members also have full access to the practice facility, can take advantage of club storage and can even make tee times up to 14 days in advance. Club membership is available on a year-round or seasonal basis and includes other “perks” such as discounts on hotel accommodations, savings on full price retail items in the Golf Pro Shop and 10 percent off food at any of the resort’s three restaurants.
For golfers looking for more than a round of play, an overnight, weekend or even a week-long stay, the resort offers a wealth of opportunities for relaxation and recreation.
