Great course on our first round of a four day golf trip. We fly into RSW from Chicago and drive straight to the course for our first round. Great value, quite a few forgiving fairways and outright historically neat. The value of the round is there . We have not golfed in one or two months and leave feeling pretty good after 18. Friendly staff, Water placed well on two of the holes lay up or fly it over... Good pace, good friends, good value all make that Pint afterwards taste refereshing in a neat Bar. Been there ten times, ten years and plan this one as well eagleon18 JAS

Loved the friendly pro-shop staff; especially liked the 19th hole facilities at the Edison restaurant adjoining the clubhouse. Bring extra balls for the wide stream which undulates across several fairways. When in doubt..lay up.
