Golf courses each have a character of there own. Here in Southwest
Florida I have 8 different courses within 5 miles of my residence. I have
played all of them at one time or another. During what we locals call
season (winter months) many are members only but come the first of June
you can play on all of them at greatly reduced prices.

If you live in Florida for more than a couple years you will find that
the heat of summer really does not bother you, especially here near the
coast where we enjoy an afternoon sea breeze off the Gulf of Mexico each
day. If the heat does bother you we have a lighted course that your can
play on until 10:00. However I suggest you bring a good set of eyes with
you preferably young eyes to follow the flight of the ball, especially if
your ball lands on the edge of the fairway.

Many of my friends are addicted golf fanatics that will play everyday
come rain or shine. Afternoon thunderstorms are an everyday threat on all
our courses. Golf courses that feature carts with a good wide and long
roofs will do double duty by keeping the blazing hot sun off you and keep
your gear dry during afternoon thunderstorms.

Golf courses with water hazards can be interesting during June when the
gators are mating. Most golf courses have the number of the local
alligator trapper on speed dial at this time of the year. It is advisable
to never wade into a golf course pond to retrieve a ball. Alligators are
very deceptive by appearing to be slow moving but can accelerate to
capture prey at incredible speeds. We have had several attacks in our
area over the past ten years so you need to give gators a wide birth. In
the past we used to have a good supply of rattlesnakes but due to
urbanization and increasing numbers of wild hogs they are now seldom
seen.
Hogs on a golf course are a disaster waiting to happen. In just one night
your favorite course can have thousands of dollars worth of damage. This
is especially true if they do their rooting on greens. Golfers are very
picky about the golf course they want to play on and especially critical
of any changes to the greens. Hog control and removal is a high priority
effort around most golf courses.

There are many quality golf courses located here in Southwest Florida. In
fact you could easily play a different course for each day of the month
and not have to travel more than 20 minutes from your home. There are to
many to name and more are being built all the time. Southwest Florida has
at least one golf course to suit you and your playing style.
