Calusa Pines Golf Club
Calusa Pines has been ranked as one of the top courses in the U.S. by Golf Magazine's panel of experts.
Quietly situated behind rows of towering conifers, Calusa Pines is a rarity among Florida golf courses because it showcases some dramatic elevation changes to go along with lightning fast greens and creative bunkering.
The long, dogleg-right par-5 4th hole is a brute with marsh running the length of the right side. Beware of the alligators that patrol the reeds below the tee box! The uphill, 310-yard par-4 6th tempts the longest hitters to try for the green, but a huge, deep bunker guards the front of the putting surface, so a mid-iron approach is the popular choice. The uphill 18th, a par 4, requires players to thread the needle between two of the deepest bunkers on the course.Design - Golf Course at Calusa Pines
