Course Details

The National Golf & Country Club at Ave Maria showcases a newly opened 18-hole championship golf course designed by Gordon Lewis that offers fun challenges for all ages and skill levels.

The National currently offers five sets of playing tee boxes. For the advanced golfer, the course is a challenging 7,300 yards from the back tees, featuring one of the longest Par 5 holes in Collier Country at 701 yards. While the forward tees come in at just under 5,000 yards, water still comes into play on almost every hole meaning precise shots are still required to navigate this new and exciting course. 

The many doglegs, some over water, combined with grass bunkers, undulating green complexes, and large fairway knolls make The National Golf & Country Club unique to other courses in the Southwest Florida region. These subtle nuances combined with many risk / reward scenarios off the tee puts together a great golf course that is a real treat to play and leaves the golfer wanting to return.
