Moving to Punta Gorda, FL


Recommended Posts

In about a month, my family and I will be moving to Punta Gorda, Florida and I am hoping you all could help recommend some courses around that area? I'm going to drive down there next weekend to check on our house and try to sneak in a few rounds.

I'd send @GregB135 a message. He's pretty knowledgeable about courses on the gulf side and regularly posts course reviews.

If you can do the drive, check our Ave Maria at Immokalee and San Carlos in Estero, two of my favourites down that way.

Heron Creek was one I was interested in trying after a few Google searches. I'll look at the others you mentioned too. Thank you.

I played Heritage landing several times back in January and it was a pretty solid course for the price.  Some of the courses can get pricey during the prime season but the course was nice and a good value.

Thanks for the shout out Tony! I haven't been on any of the courses in the immediate area around Punta Gorda.

The closest I can get are a few in the Lakewood Ranch area. Both the Lakewood National courses are very good, and Esplanade at Azario in that area is good too. Also can't go wrong with the Ritz Carlton Club of Sarasota. 

A little further south near Fort Myers is the Old Corkscrew Golf Club. It was a great course, but we had a bad experience with the people there so I don't recommend it.

Best wishes on your move.  We are assembling quite the MGS group on the Gulf Side - we will need to have an outing soon - maybe Thanksgiving week - anyone in the area up for that?  Perhaps we should start a thread.

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

Rev,, I think we're headed back to Ohio the week before and a few days after - but I'm good for anytime before or after that trip. And a separate thread would be great. here's one we had going for an Ohio outing:

MGS meet-up/outing threads, complete with pics and trash talk, are mandatory 🙂.

+1 For Heron Creek,

I go to Port Charlotte once a year to see my Aunt and Uncle. It's been my favorite in the area to play with him. Bobcat was fun, but I heard that it might have lost some of its upkeep. Shockingly, there is a lot of golf in that area. I have no doubt you will find one you like.
