Naples Beach Hotel. Florida.

Dramatic Renovation in 2016

Not resting on its many laurels, the AAA Four-Diamond The Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club in Southwest Florida will dramatically renovate its championship golf course in 2016. The resort has enlisted acclaimed golf course architect John Sanford to redesign the entire course, who is designing the new course in collaboration with the legendary Jack Nicklaus and Nicklaus Design. Significantly, Jack Nicklaus has a historical tie with the resort, as he first broke 40 strokes for 9 holes on the resort’s course when he was 10, shooting a 37! This, in particular, is what drew Nicklaus to the project, as the scorecard is even displayed in the Jack Nicklaus Museum, which celebrates the career of the person widely regarded as the greatest professional golfer of all time. The resort’s current course will remain open until April 10, 2016, with the golf course renovation project slated to begin on April 11, 2016. It is anticipated that the course will reopen in late fall 2016. The announcement was made by Henry B. Watkins III, owner of the 125-acre resort.
