Southwest Florida at Old Corkscrew Golf Club
Pure, perfect golf. Our newest Florida golf school location is at the incomparable Old Corkscrew Golf Club in Lee County, southwest Florida (15 minutes from Ft. Myers International airport). Old Corkscrew is designed by the legendary, Jack Nicklaus and may well be one of his finest course designs of the hundreds of courses that he has designed around the world. Our PGA and LPGA instructors offer our students a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience this spectacular course, and play their best golf.
The Nicklaus Signature design, Par 72 layout, blends perfectly into the surrounding environment. Since Old Corkscrew is not part of a real estate development, the course is a “stand alone” golf facility and the perfect location for your South Florida golf school experience. The course meanders through the magnificent oak, pine and cypress trees that frame the facility and Mr. Nicklaus has brilliantly crafted his course design to blend seamlessly into the natural landscape.
