Golf Fun Day - Ritz-Carlton Tiburon

  • Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort

    2600 Tiburon Drive, Naples, FL (map)

    26.248869 -81.766697

  • We will meet at the Tiburon Golf Club at the Pro Shop
  • Hello from your friendly neighborhood PGA Golf Professional. This will be a day of casual fun on the driving range and short game practice areas. I will provide all of the necessities - clubs, gloves, etc. to enjoy some time on this world rated Greg Norman designed facility.


    If you do not have golf clubs, no worries. I will provide whatever you need to get started through my friends and fellow professionals at the course. I will make sure that each person will have their own golf cart in order to get around.


    Tiburon' means "Shark" in Spanish. Mr. Norman is known on the PGA Tour as the "Great White Shark". He has won numerous tournaments worldwide including 2 British Opens - considered the birthplace of golf.

    Greg is my friend... and the coolest thing about his golf course is that all of the sand traps are actually made from crushed Coquina shells - the only course in the world that has this.

    The practice bunker is next to the driving range and I will demonstrate how to hit the shot. In actuality, the sand trap is the best place to be if you miss the green - most of the time professionals can get the ball very close to the hole. Out of the rough, it is much more difficult because the Bermuda grass gets between the clubface and the ball - this results in a much more difficult shot because you literally cannot control the golf ball.

    After some time in the sun, we will meet at the Ritz-Carlton Resort Hotel lobby area for fun, food, and fellowship - very cool and snazzy.

    REQUIRED... All you need to do is take care of the staff with a generous gratuity. The off season is here, and in the service industry, these ladies and gentlemen can really use some help.

    I will handle all the rest.

    I look forward to seeing all of you. Due to limited space on the practice area, this event is limited to a set number of RSVP's.

    All the best,

    Shawn

    Hello everyone,

    The Golf Director at the Ritz-Carlton Tiburon' just called me and informed me that they just booked a large corporate golf outing for the day that this event was scheduled. The driving range will not be available to do this.

    I am disappointed, but understand that any special treatment at the golf resort are a privilege, not a right.

    I will do my best to schedule another golf fun day as soon as I can.

    Meantime, please accept my apologies for this cancellation.

    All the best,
    Shawn

    It reads that there are 2 spots left... but I received notification that I'm on the Wait List. Disappointed! I hope I am cleared and included to join the fun.

      Hi Lisa, there is a great chance that you will move up... hang in there. I can only invite a certain number of people. Most of the time, the wait list moves up.
