2 private Napoli layouts are on the Golfweek list


Good news for Southwest Florida golf fans.

Two golf courses in Naples are on Golfweek’s Best 2022 list of the best private golf courses in the United States


Pines of Calusa and National of Naples.

Bad news for Southwest Florida golf fans. Private means private. In other words, not all courses on this annual list accept day or resort play. You must either be a paying member of these clubs or be connected to someone who is and can host you as a guest.

Not only did Calusa and Naples National make the list, but in the state-by-state rankings, both courses were in the Sunshine State top-10, with Calusa coming in at No. 2 and Naples National at No. 7.

#1 overall in Florida is Seminole at Juno Beach, considered by many to be one of the best golf courses in the world. For more perspective, the Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia, which hosts the Masters every April, is on the list.
