Mustang Golf Course Renovations Complete

Mustang Golf Course Renovations Complete

Mustang GOlf

The Mustang Golf Course has re-opened after being closed for renovations since last May.  Mustang is just one of the golf courses at Lely Resort and is one of the few golf communities with three golf courses.  Originally designed by Lee Trevino, the course provides multiple tee boxes to cater to all levels of golfers.

The renovations focused on replacing the grass in the fairways, rough and tee boxes.  Now, the 21-year old Mustang golf course has new Bimini grass.  So, the course will require less water and fertilizer compared to other types of grass.  Finally, Bimini grass stays greener and grows back quicker which helps the divot areas recover faster.  For those of you who are not familiar with Florida golf courses, you do not replace divots as they will not grow back in place.  Instead, the course provides a sand mixture to fill in the holes which will facilitate the regrowth of the grass in the divots.

Finally, minor changes were made to the irrigation system and some of the tee boxes on the par threes.  Additionally, since the greens were renovated a couple years ago and are still in great shape, they were left as is.  The golf club did replace the grass in the collars that surround the greens.

More Information About Lely Resort

Lely Resort is home to three very different golf courses.  The Mustang Golf Course and the Flamingo Golf Course are both public courses and open to both the public and members of The Classics which is the third course.   Ultimately, the Flamingo Golf Course which was designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr. is the most challenging of the three courses.  It is narrow and presents a challenge if you end up in the rough.  And, The Classics course, which is a private golf club, was designed by Gary Player and offers a more open course that is a bit more forgiving than the Flamingo.

Bottom Line:

Naples FL Golf CommunitiesIf you are buying a home in a golf community, you will find it’s more complex than a typical home purchase.  As you can probably imagine, there are significant differences between golf communities.  There are many different fee structures, membership options, pet restrictions, demographics and many other details that apply to the SWFL golf communities.

Also, if you are considering new construction, remember the contractor’s real estate agent represents the builder’s best interest, not yours.  There is no cost to you to have an agent represent you. In fact, I may be able to help you save money and negotiate for extras which the builder may not let you know about.

If you’re looking for information about a specific community in Bonita Springs, Estero or Naples, please contact me and I will prepare a custom market report for you.  I will provide the market information and insights to help make sure you select your dream home!

Lastly, I will handle all contract negotiations for your property from offer to close!
