Golf

An impressive collection of manicured greens beckon players of every caliber. Golf enthusiasts will find some of the most sought after golf courses among luxury communities and abundant four and five star resorts. With 100 courses and counting, there are more golf holes per capita in Naples than in any other American city, but it should be noted that roughly 80 percent of the golf courses are private.

The greens are large and well protected by traps. Water comes into play often on this course with winds creating a challenge on the 14th. Golfweek Magazine has twice designated this course as one of Americas best, while Golf Digest gives it a four star rating. With its hourglass fairways, fingered sand bunkers and large rolling greens, this golf course is destined to provide many exciting challenges. Play it for yourself, we're sure you'll agree.

Designed by Charles Mahannah and Lee Trevino, Mustang is a course that follows his philosophy of making the game challenging - but a fair challenge - for the average golfer. The course offers a variety of golf holes that are difficult to a point, but always fun to play - where a player can always recover from an errant shot.
