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.

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.

Haven't been back to Sanibel Golf Club in a few years. Wow! What a difference. The new owners have obviously done a lot of work. Many trees have been cut down or trim back to allow the grass to grow. Lot of new waste areas...More

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.More

Dear Mr. Donnelly, I am sorry to hear we did not meet your expectations. From time to time, we get some first time visitors to Sanibel that expect the golf courses to be similar to their extremely high end country clubs up north. We try...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

For off season, I'm not sure what people expect. Yes, the greens are slow but it's expected. We had a great time playing. There was zero pressure with groups behind us. There is a lot of water which makes the course challenging. We had fun!
