Naples National Golf Club - Naples Florida
Holes: 18 Par-72
When planning the Naples National golf course layout, the club's founders selected Hurdzan and Fry golf course architects because they had the talent and skill to turn it's 175 acre flat piece of Florida into a masterpiece. Their philosophy when designing the Naples National golf course was to design a course with a more relaxed spirit in keeping with the tradition of golf's golden age, to create beautiful settings with unforgettable images.
During the design of the golf course, Hurdzan and Frey believed in the tradition of making the most of the native terrain; in this case, 320 acres of centuries-old stands of cypress and pine, marshland and sand. The end result is that golfers will find a golf course that appears unbelievably mature, yet natural at the same time. One hundred and twenty acres of land have been dedicated as a nature preserve and will remain undisturbed.
Those privileged enough to have played August National and Pine Valley will immediately pick up on striking and often harrowing similarities. Rugged sand scrub waste areas border meticulously manicured fairways. The overall design is a throwback to the historic courses of 60, 70, 80 years ago. No island greens. No railroad ties. No gimmicks. Still and all, from the tips, this par 72 tops out at well over 7,000 yards ~ giving even low handicappers a high degree of difficulty and reward.
