There are many great golf courses for the vacation golfer in and around Fort Myers.  The city has 43 courses in total, and there are no fewer than 100 within a 25 mile radius. 

The nearest is Golf View, a 9 hole semi-private course that is immediately behind our neighbourhood.  You can walk to it.  Other Fort Myers courses that come well recommended include Stoneybrook, Shell Pointe, Lexington and PlantationAll of these are within 20 minutes of the house.

We have a group of experienced & keen golfing buddies who stay with us for a week just about every year.  To give you an idea of what's possible, this is what they did in 2011, travelling a maximum of an hour to get to a course, but mostly much less:

Sunday - Copperhead (Lehigh Acres)

Monday - Kingsway, (Lake Suzy, near Port Charlotte)

Tuesday - Eastwood (Fort Myers)

Wednesday - Bobcat Trail (North Port, halfway between Sarasota and Fort Myers)

Thursday - Plantation (Fort Myers)

Friday - Panther Run (Ave Maria, between Immokalee & Naples)

Colonial Pointe is not situated on a golf course, so if you are looking for a rental house in a golf community, our house isn't for you.  But if you want somewhere in a great location, with very easy access lots of great courses, you'll love it.  We have a number of golfing parties who return year after year.
