  • You can love this course for its beauty and well manicured fairways and greens or hate it for it’s challenging Jack Nicklaus signature design, this course is always a must play during my annual winter...  more »
  • For the resort golfer my only advice is bring plenty of balls. For everyone bring bug spray and lots of courage. Greens are fast and true but your reads will be challenged. A big thank you to Dennis f...  more »

  • Make a note before you play, ask the pro shop about the bugs. We played on June 1st, and I realize this is southern Florida and one might expect a few bugs........but damn they were intolerable. Had we known about the sand fleas (gnats) and flying ants we would have selected another course. After nine holes we exhausted an entire can of deep woods off. I spoke with someone in the pro shop.....who tried to sell us some additional repellent. Of course there're aware of this issue, but elected not to mention it when we booked our tee time. Personally, I won't play there again!! We played Raptor Bay the previous day without any interference from bugs.
  • Played the course this morning. I am from south Florida and have played some great courses. This course is absolutely spectacular. This is a very challenging course. Greens are well protected and rough. We played 4 courses in the area and this one is great. The bag boys went out of there way to give the history of the course. I will be back
  • I'm from Michigan and I visit the Naples area every winter to play golf. In the past two years, I've made it a priority to play Old Corkscrew both times I went down there. When I played the course in the winter of 2015, it was in good shape. The layout was challenging, but not unfair. Obviously the price was a bit steep (but considering it's a Jack Nicklaus Signature course), it eased some of the pain when I paid my greens fees. I came back down this winter (I played the course on 2-22-16), and was stunned to find the condition the course was in. Everything else was just fine: the range, the short game area, the friendly service, etc. but the conditions were downright deplorable. It's as if management had fired their course superintendent, and hadn't found a replacement for quite some time. Every single green had at least 3-4 significant dead patches (filled in with green sand), and there were a handful of shots around the course (fairways, rough, etc.) where I had to take an unplayable because the lie/conditions were terrible. To my knowledge, there are only three dozen or so Jack Nicklaus Signature courses in the entire world (there are nearly 300 courses designed by Jack, but are not considered "signature courses"). If Jack went their today and played, he'd be appalled. To charge $185 for 18 with a cart, with the current condition of the course, is madness. Needless to say, I will never play Old Corkscrew again. I'm a manager at a golf course in Michigan (named the Best Municipal Course in the State), and our most expensive round is $44 for 18 with a cart, and our conditions are FAR superior to that of Old Corkscrew. Save your money and play elsewhere.
  • Challenging course, great conditions, staff were extremely friendly and facilities were top notch. Definitely will be back numerous times.
  • Quite simply this is the best course in the area bar none. Reasonably difficult but rewarding when playing well. Staff are very welcoming and curteous. Drinks buggy seems always on hand which is good when i played as it was 101 degrees. Course was in immaculate condition and the greens run true what more could you ask for.
