Toughest Golf Courses in Naples Florida

 

Toughest Golf Courses in Naples Florida 

 

In an area that is famous for golf and the number of layouts available, it could be fun to note the toughest golf courses in Naples, Florida.  Of course that means that “tough” needs to be defined, and the United States Golf Association (USGA) has promoted a couple of appropriate measurements.  A “course rating” is a numerical value given to each set of tees at each course.  It is the number of strokes on average a “scratch” golfer should take to complete the round.  This is the most basic and widely used determining factor of difficulty.  Because not everyone can be a scratch golfer, the USGA also came up with “slope,” which is a measure of how difficult the course is for a “bogey” golfer.  This is a figure between 55 and 155, and represents the relative difficulty of a course for a more “average” player.

Using the “back” tees for the measurement of “course rating” for the toughest golf courses in Naples, Florida, topping the list is the “Eagle” course at Twin Eagles.  This 7,600+ yard design by architect Steve Smyers has a rating of 77.9 (Augusta National is 78.1for the Masters), while its more famous companion at Twin Eagles, “Talon” by Jack Nicklaus, has a 75.5 rating.  Located near the east end of Vanderbilt Beach Road is the Golf Club of the Everglades, which is a very private “golf only” club with a course designed by Rees Jones which is rated 76.3.  Other courses of note include TPC Treviso Bay and Naples National (76.2), The Strand and The Quarry (76.0), Pelican Marsh and Bay Colony (75.9) and Mediterra “South” (75.5).
