The Top Golf Courses and Resorts in Naples, Florida

The Top Golf Courses and Resorts in Naples, Florida

It was very difficult to decide what to include in my list of the Top Golf Courses in Naples, Florida - there are a great many of them in this section of Southwest Florida. That being so, the choices are all mine. I have visited almost all of the golf courses in the greater Naples area, and these are the ones that impressed me the most.

Most of the golf courses in and around Naples are open the year-round. From May through October they are never crowded. You can pick your tee time and enjoy a leisurely round. Better yet, many of the private golf courses in Naples are open to the public during these months. Winter in Southwest Florida brings perfect golfing weather: brisk, Gulf breezes in the early morning; warm, balmy days; grass green and lush; affordable green fees; and there's also plenty to see and do when you're not on the course. All of this makes Naples a top-notch golf destination.
