We played The Flamingo course 🏌late November and the course was in a very good condition. Good fairways, fast greens and a beautiful layout with many challenging water areas. I played it from the Green tees and had a good fun. Loved the course. The proshop is well equipped, the food at the golf restaurant was excellent, especially the cold... More

We had booked 2 rounds of golf at Lely to play the mustang course. When we arrived we learnt that the flamingo course had recently come out of maintenance. Naturally we wanted to play both courses and the guys in the pro shop were more than accommodating to allow us to do so. The Flamingo course was the tougher of... More

Played Flamingo yesterday and enjoyed it. Greens were fast although just top-dressed? Course was in good shape going now into the hot months.

The Flamingo Course at Lely Golf Resort is quite beautiful and reputed to be more challenging than the Mustang Course, the other of their public courses open to the public. The fairways on the Flamingo are narrower and have a great deal more water. We found these fairways to be better than others we played in southern Florida; they seem... More

The signature course at Lely Resort. Beautiful and challenging. Great lounge at the turn too! Would recommend to any Golfer.

The Flamingo is the somewhat more challenging of the 2 public courses at Lely. The fairways are a bit narrow and shot selection is very important. The 9th and 18th holes share a green so be careful of your aim. Summer rates are good but very expensive in winter.

It's a nice course, but for the $129 for a round in Late March it wasn't a drop dead gorgeous course. The greens were fast but in decent shape. There is a nice range that is included with the green fee as well as the cart with GPS and screens in them so that you can accurately measure distances from... More

Excellent for a public course. Greens rolled like lightening and took some getting used to. Lots of room off the tee. Busy place but management keeps things moving along without feeling rushed. Like the cart GPS system.

Although a lovely track, you need not travel this far to enjoy good golf. Naples has a few public play and resort courses that provide every bit the experience. Additionally, if you are a member of any one of the private courses here in Naples, you have the benefit of reciprocals.

We played twilight golf here twice the starters were very helpful on both occasions we also played the Mustang too (not as enjoyable). The Flamingo is very well kept and enough water to be challenging. Unfortunately we fell foul of slow play both times but this is the risk you take with late play. We still managed 12 plus holes...
