Hibiscus Golf Club, just minutes south of downtown, Naples' is one of the area’s most established courses. The course is quite an old one, compared with most in the vicinity – it was built in 1969 - but with its greens completely renovated in 2007, it is now a golf course that should be added to you list of possible venues. Like many Florida layouts, you'll find the fairways at the Hibiscus golf course fairly flat; however, they are generous, well maintained and lined with a variety of native Hibiscus trees.
Water is in play on 12 of the 18 holes, and that alone will make real test of your skills. Very picturesque, very enjoyable, and within easy reach all the major hotels and resorts, it comes highly recommended. Better yet, the greens fees make it a great value for money.
The 18-hole Hibiscus golf course in Naples, Florida plays 6,540 yards from the tips for a par of 73, a course rating of 71.5 and a slope rating of 125.
Green Fees: from $40 to $60 depending upon the season, day of week, time of day, etc. As always, green fees are subject to change, so please check with the golf club for up to date rates; the number is listed below.
