What is “Golf Course Drive” in Naples, Florida? It is probably better known as Immokalee Road, although I believe that is a misnomer. I give it the new name because of the number of superb golf course communities that are located directly off a 10 mile stretch of this street. Starting with the intersection with Tamiami Trail North (US 41) going east, first comes Colliers Reserve, an 18 hole private course designed by Arthur Hills. A little further along is the “bundled” golf community of Stonebridge, whose 18 hole layout was originally designed by Gene Bates, and then refigured by Gordon Lewis. Mr. Lewis is also responsible for the 27 holes that are featured in The Strand, a private,
gated development still west of Interstate 75
“Golf Course Drive” in Naples, Florida continues with Cypress Woods, another creation of Gordon Lewis, and is 18 holes of bundled golf directly east of the Interstate. Also there is Quail West, an exclusive development with 36 holes designed by Arthur Hills, who is also responsible for the two 18 hole courses in the private Quail Creek community, also off Immokalee. Right next to there is the executive course at the gated Quail Creek Village. Continuing east there is Olde Cypress, a private development whose 18 hole course is the brainchild of Pete Dye. Across the street is Arrowhead Golf Club, a wonderful public course and another Gordon Lewis layout.
East of Collier Boulevard, first comes the Quarry, where the community’s 18 holes of links style golf is built around a 320 acre lake. Right next door to the east is a newer development, Heritage Bay with 27 holes designed by the Lewis-Azinger team. Completing the list of communities on “Golf Course Drive” in Naples, Florida is Twin Eagles with its two championship courses. Jack Nicklaus designed the Talon, which hosts the senior ACE Group Classic, while the Eagle, a Steve Smyers creation, is the home of LPGA Titleholders Tournament.
