Located just off of the shores of Southwest Florida, Sanibel Island is home to some of the area's best resorts, real estate, and recreation. Known for its gorgeous views of the Gulf of Mexico, Sanibel Island's incredible natural setting makes it the perfect atmosphere to enjoy the game of golf. Today's featured course, Sanibel Island Golf Club, plays like a championship course should: challenging each aspect of your game throughout a fabulous 18-hole layout. Rated 69.9, measuring a slope of 129, and lush with indigenous wildlife, it is truly one of the finest playing experiences in the Sunshine State.

Playing just over 6,000 yards from the back tees, Sanibel Island Golf Club's semi-private layout is an uncompromising tropical paradise perfect for the player of any skill or ability level. Each hole brings with it picturesque views, natural challenge, and ideal conditions to play your best golf. Proper course management and shot execution are a must on Sanibel Island, as the beauty throughout can quickly turn into hazards and difficulty. With forced carries over water, cleverly placed bunkers, well protected greens, and a vast array of abundant wildlife, a round at Sanibel Island Golf Club is everything you want - and more.

Like most great golf facilities, the course at Sanibel Island is just one aspect of this incredible destination. Make sure to check out the golf shop which carries a variety of apparel and equipment that'll help improve your performance and your look. Sanibel Island Golf Club is also home to the Sanibel Island Tennis Club featuring state-of-the-art Hyrdo-Grid Tennis Courts that'll make you feel like a pro. After your day of the fun, the Blue Coyote Supper Club is the perfect place to grab a great meal, a delicious drink, and toast your scores.

Beautiful weather, a gorgeous setting, and an tremendous facility, let Sanibel Island Golf Club play host to your next great round of golf.

A shame. Great location, nice staff, good physical layout but the under spend on the facility is obvious. Many bare spots; tee box's, fairways and greens. Hole flags ripped, etc. Van Cortland in the Bronx is in better shape.

I have played this course for several years now and that have made much progress and it looks like this year made it more challenging for the back tee boxes. Very stress free golf experience and pretty easy to get on the course. Very friendly staff. Great place to golf.

We've been golfing at the Sanibel Island Golf Club for years. We are very proud to take friends along with us. The club is wonderfully managed by Drew and Ed who are constantly working to upgrade the facilities. I've never seen owners so dedicated to making their golf course the best it can be. From friendly greetings to new golf... More

Always a pleasure visiting Sanibel Island Golf Club, but especially after all the great work they've put into the place. Greens are the best I've ever seen them and the new tee boxes are situated among beautiful natural grasses and plantings. Played early and solo so really had a unique chance to soak in the fun layout, all the improvements... More

As a permanent resident of the Island we have been playing here for years. When we used to come as a visitor, the course was absolutely beautiful with abundant wildlife and terribly run down. The previous owner just let it fall into a state of disrepair. It was a tragedy. Since we moved here 7 years ago we have played... More

Staff very friendly. Competitive pricing. Course in very poor condition, more noticeable on the tee boxes. Watch out for fire ants next they are absolutely everywhere including on the tee boxes whilst teeing off!. We played twice same both times. Shame

A thoroughly enjoyable round on a special course. The work the owners have put into the course over the past few years looks amazing. Always such pleasant folks and a wonderful golfing value. There are very few places that can combine a fun fair test of golf and the beautiful setting. Saw a wide variety of wildlife along the way.... More

Very friendly welcoming club. The new owners are really working to upgrade the course. Greens on front still need a bit of work, but overall the improvements are great. Staff are very helpful. Restaurant is great for lunch or dinner.
