The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, Naples

A golfer's paradise in Naples

Golfers and nature lovers come to Southwest Florida to relax, but when they come to Naples, they know they better bring their A game. Making good on the city’s title as “the golf capital of the world,” The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, Naples sets the bar for a stay-and-play luxury vacation.

A few miles inland on the Paradise Coast, the luxury resort is a secluded hideaway, where palm trees and lush gardens camouflage the world-renowned Tiburón Golf Course, an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary. The championship green includes two Greg Norman-designed 18-hole courses and a prestigious golf academy, and brings in the big names each year for the national CME Championship LPGA Tour and QBE Shootout (the annual PGA Tour Challenge Season).

Between rounds, you may find yourself hanging out with Matt Kuchar poolside, and for those not interested in a morning on the links, enjoy the day at the resort’s nearby beachside sister property, The Ritz-Carlton, Naples.
