Old Corkscrew Golf Club, a Jack Nicklaus ‘Signature Design is Southwest Florida’s # 1 Rated Golf Course. The coveted awards associated with the property include: ‘Best Course Near You’ & ‘Best Course That You Have Never Heard Of’, Golf Magazine, ‘Florida Golf Course of the Year – 2008’, NGCOA and ‘One of America’s Best New Courses – 2007’, Golf Digest.

The par-72 championship layout which opened in 2007 meets the highest design criteria. Since OCGC is not part of any real estate development, this course is a “core” or “stand-alone” extraordinary golf experience. The course design has been developed to mesh precisely with the outstanding natural assets – mature oak, pine and cypress trees and a natural flow way through the center of the property... adding up to one spectacular golf course.

From the black tees, the course is rated as one of most challenging in Florida. Annually, the venue plays hosts to FSGA and USGA events, and for the past two years – 2011 & 2012 is the host qualifying site for the ACE Group Championship, PGA Champions Tour. To any golf enthusiast, the course is honestly considered a ‘must play destination’.

Disappointing Day Very disappointing. Just finished a 5 hour round where we waited on virtually every shot and never saw a marshall or course employee to speed up play. Great design but horrible condition. Course gets too much play and not enough maintenance. Course charges a very premium price but doesn't deliver on a premium experience. February 27, 2015
SKIP IT I am a 7 handicap and have been fortunate enough to play a plethora of tough tracks all over the world. Old Corkscrew is certainly difficult but no fun to play. The fairways are so shaved making the lies so tight that a less than perfect strike results in a chunk or a skull. The greens were in lamentable condition running at perhaps a 8 1/2 on the stimp and bumpy as heck. They charge a stout bit of cake to play this course and in my view the juice isn't worth the squeeze. February 24, 2015
Brutal Course This course is not for the faint of heart. I played with a guy that normally shoots in the 90's and I doubt he broke 115! Many greens are tucked behind ponds and the greens are undulating and fast. Stay below the hole and bring lots of balls! February 23, 2015
A challenge Got a great rate on golfnow so really had a great value. First tee all chewed up but after that course in good shape. Very challenging particularly for the first time playing. Deceptive site lines at times but well worth playing. February 19, 2015
Beyond My Expectations First, I'm an average golfer with a large handicap and I am used to playing courses that give me room to miss! Having said that, I missed the fairway more than I would like to admit. Why? This course is amazingly unforgiving, you have to be accurate and use good judgement. I found this to be an unbelievably challenging day and I loved it! The course makes you look carefully at each hole and choose your ball placement based on your skill level, If you're wise (something my ego was not willing to accept) you will not be too aggressive when you can't back it up! I was humbled very quickly and forced into rethinking my strategy. I guess when I reached into my bag for the umpteenth time to get another ball and saw that they were running low, the decision was made for me. I kept thinking of Costner in Tin Cup and saying to myself, don't be that guy. As for the staff and facility, I couldn't have been more pleased. Bill in the Pro Shop was very accommodating and helpful. He gave me some great pointers and a nice overview of the history of the course. Dave the Starter was very friendly and flexible with the tee time. Overall, I had a Wonderfull time, and would highly recommend this course. February 19, 2015
Good but........ Challenging course and interesting but condition of course did not meet my expectation for fee paid. I expected a much more groomed course February 18, 2015
