BEAUTY OF THE COURSES
The are nearly 30 courses in the area that have earned Audubon golf course certificates. This is a testament to the commitment these courses have made to keeping the developed land use sustainable and environmentally friendly. It is not uncommon to enjoy the beauty of creators such as the American Bald Eagle while taking in some golf. The lush Bermuda grass not only looks amazing  but also promotes medium-to-high ball speed due to its ability to withstand the heat and low mowing. Many of the area golf courses offer attractive terrain with preserves and lakes with wild life.  There is also a good amount of focus on maintaining the courses beautifully.  One defining characteristic of Naples’ regional golf courses, ponds and lakes beautify the greens while presenting a challenge to the golfer. 

GENEROSITY
Naples attracts a number of homeowners with substantial financial means.  Because of this Naples has as much a reputation for philanthropy as golf.

This tournament has been going strong for 30+ years earning the recognition as the longest running post-season tourney sanctioned by the PGA Tour, it benefits CureSearch for Children’s Cancer.  Another well known tournament, the Chubb Classic  pro-am tournament gives back to the local area in big ways.

Tiburon also hosts the Impact Zone Golf Academy, inspired by the teaching philosophy of another famous golf pro, PGA Tour winner Bobby Clampett.

DENSITY

THE WEATHER
