Photo of the Week: Tiburon Golf Club at the Ritz Carlton Resort – Naples, FL

Tiburon Golf Club delivers a stunning golf experience.  Magnificent landscaping, meticulous manicuring, shimmering lakes, tall pines with Spanish moss and stacked sod-wall bunkers combine to beautify two impressive course layouts by Hall of Fame golfer Greg Norman.

Ninth Hole at Tiburon Golf Club Gold Course Looking at the Ritz Carlton

The magnificent Tiburon Golf Club Clubhouse and the adjacent Ritz-Carlton hotel provide spectacular views from the 9th and 18th holes. The view in this photograph is from the ninth fairway looking over the eighteenth fairway with the hotel in the background.

The Ritz Carlton Golf Resort Naples is one of the finest golf resorts in Florida.  The Italianate architecture of the main lodge with the Mediterranean villas and homes surrounding the course contrast with the lush green landscaping to create a unique tranquil feeling. 

Tiburon’s Gold course opened in 1998 with the Black course following in 2001. These are two of the most magnificent golf courses in all of Florida. With short rough, flat terrain and large undulating greens, normally one wouldn’t expect such superlatives.  But Norman created a challenge by incorporating water hazards,  adding difficult stacked sod-wall bunkers and converting critical areas of rough into coquina shell waste bunkers.
