The Naples and Southwest Florida area, often called the golf capital of the world, offers a variety of link selections for golfers.

Next to beach sunsets, there are few places where the natural beauty of Southwest Florida is more prominent than on many of the fine golf courses. In most cases, the course architect has gone to great lengths to preserve and emphasize the natural beauty of each site, and added to the ambience with their own embellishments.

Every major designer plus a number of professional player designers have left their signature on at least one area course, including Pete & P.B. Dye, Robert Trent Jones Jr. & Sr., Robert Van Hagge, Arthur Hills, Tom Fazio, Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Greg Norman, Gary Player, and many more.

Within the greater Southwest Florida area, over 100 courses dot the landscape. The large majority of these are private, although the newer developments that are in the real estate sales process often offer low-price temporary memberships during their first three or four years, or they simply allow public play during that time to encourage sales. Since there are always new developments in process, this provides a nice selection of course opportunities for the person who does not have a full membership at a local club
