Vineyards Country Club – Naples, Florida www.vineyardscountryclub.net
This club offers two eighteen-hole courses on expansive fairways with sparkling lakes and cypress preserve. The South Course has house-lined fairways that are wide and open. Designed by Bill Amick, the South Course was designed to appeal to the serious amateur and the professional alike. Tough but never punishing, it offers a fascinating mix of shots that will test your imagination as well as your strategic ability.
As former host of Naples' PGA Senior Event, the South Course has earned the respect of many of golf's renowned players. The greens are undulating and fast. There are lakes that come into play on five holes. The North Course has wide and open fairways. Designed by PGA professional Mark McCumber replicates play on a Scottish links-style course and has universal appeal-particularly to a higher handicapper. With flexible layout and multiple tee placements, the North Course allows you to play to your level of skill. There is very little vegetation on this course, which enables the wind to be a major factor. There are five water hazards that come into play. Vineyards is a 1,375-acre community that boasts 30 lakes.
