Lely Resort Golf & Country Club
Nice terrain, poor conditions
Greens were extremely dry, sandy while fairways were soggy due to poor drainage. We had a good pace going until the back 9 when two foursomes jumped in front of us and slowed pace down to a crawl. No ranger to be seen. Would not play this course again

Great Layout, but very poor conditions
Played the Flamingo at a twilight rate. For $70 I left the course ashamed and disgusted that I had spent so much for a course in a condition worst than most munis. The picturesque signature hole you see when google searching the course and on their site (completely surrounded by water) was not recognizable until after the round my threesome admitted that it was the only it could have been. The greens and fringes were hard like rocks, and were very difficult to chip and putt from. The tee boxes were the worst I had ever seen. Not only in terrible shape, but also put in areas of ridiculous inclines of uphill and downhill lies and put in such a fashion that the tees were set so far back on the designated teeing area, that it was hard to make a normal stance nevermind have the opportunity to put your tee a little further back. Fairways were also in bad shape, and the rough was very patchy. We also saw at least three alligators. For the price there are so many better courses in the area. It is a shame to because the layout was magnificent (Robert Trent Jones Design) and the scenery was alright as well.

What could be better?
Visiting Naples an so much to chose from, we were very very pleased with our round at Flamingo. Would certainly highly recommend it.

Challenging yet fun course
The course was in very good condition. Very challenging with lots of bunkers protecting the greens and many water holes. I would play there again.

The Mustang course at Lely was a pleasant surprise. I played from the back green tees which made the course challenging. The fairways were fair and well maintained. The greens were fast and true. Overall an excellent experience.

Very Good Course
The pro shop was very accommodating and allowed me to switch from the Mustang course to Flamingo Island. The course is in good shape but lack of rain has meant some greens with quite a bit of sand on them.
Overall, the course provides a bit of a challenge and has some very picturesque holes. I would recommend this track to even the lowest of handicap golfers.

Lely Flamingo Island Club -- a very enjoyable course for women golfers
I brought a group of 8 women golfers (so total 9 of us) of varying golf abilities (mid to high handicappers) to Lely Flamingo Island Club, and we had an extremely enjoyable time. Lovely course that is challenging but fair. There are some deep green-side bunkers, and water does come into play on several holes, so hitting it straight is important. But even high-handicappers who practice course management can stay out of trouble. The bottom line is that we loved the course, and we had a terrific lunch afterwards in the Sam Snead restaurant. We'll definitely be back!
