Much can be thanked to the legendary golf vacation destination architect Jack Nicklaus, and this son, Jack Nicklaus II, for the outstanding layout of the 18 holes’ TwinEagles Club – The Talon, one of the two amazing golf courses in the resort along with the Eagle course. One of the top residential golf courses in Southwest Florida, the Talon course is a landscape that primarily pays homage to the lineage of traditional golf in St, Andrews Scotland, which is the mother of all golf games.
Tradition is evident in the undulating greens and rolling dunes, as well as the luscious fairways of TwinEagles Club – The Talon. To heighten the atmosphere of a play, deep pot bunkers are strategically place all throughout, along with water hazards that add to the demand on the holes. Anyone aiming to replicate the Nicklaus style of golf can captivate the attitude in the way this golf trip location was built –playing the way the Nicklaus’ put energy and expertise into a shot strategy as they outmatch the 7,193 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 72. The course rates 75.5 with a slope rating of 141.
In an effort to assist guests into having the best golf vacation in TwinEagles Club – The Talon, practice facilities are offered including double-ended driving range and a short game area. Guests can definitely play where the professionals hit the course and where the home to the The Champions Tour Ace Group Classic and CME Titleholders Championship is. After opening in 2008 and under the New Leaf management headed by General Manager, Jay Severso, this destination has consistently followed through with its fame.
