Set in the expansive terrains of Naples, Florida, the Tiburon Golf Club offers the sophisticated avenue for championship golf. This prestigious golf vacation getaway offers two of Florida’s high-end 18-hole layout that has been attracting renowned golf names from across the globe. Designed by Greg Norman, a legendary golf course designer, Tiburon features the perfect blend of the traditional and modern elements giving golfers the challenging yet elegant golf experience.
The Gold Course is said to be Greg Norman’s visual and environmental masterpiece. It features the coquina waste areas where the rolling fairways meander, the countless water features, the sand filled bunkers, the towering pine trees, as well as the tricky green complexes. This layout has been a certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary and the home of prestigious golf events including the Merrill Lynch Shootout. The Black Course is the second championship gem of Norman. This layout is set in the native Florida foliage and acres of pine trees. The course features the pine straw-lined fairways, orange coquina waste areas, undulating greens, and the stacked sod wall bunkers. It was given a course rating of 74.2 and 147 for the slope rating. Although the course’s natural surroundings were enhanced, Greg Norman strived to preserve the area’s inherent allure.
Aside from the championship golf courses, the Tiburon Golf Club also boasts of being home to the Rick Smith Golf Academy that features Rick Smith, a famous golf instructor. From the first swing all the way to the last putt, golfers will surely find themselves having one of the world’s finest golfing escapades while being one with nature.
