"This is the best one we've ever played!" There's ONLY ONE Castle Golf!

Step back to an enchanted time of knights, dragons and medieval chivalry. Get swept up in the spellbinding mystery that only happens at knight (night) as you make your way over the lagoon, under a waterfall, through the forest and fog, to the castle under the stars. And if you get lucky enough to score a hole-in-one, be sure to spin the Round Table of the Knights Wheel at the end of your game - you might win a free round of golf!
We usually include a game of mini-golf in our vacations. This is definitely one of the nicest ones we've played. It is clean and very well-maintained. The theme is cute. The holes are challenging enough to be fun, and the layout is nice with a mini boardwalk in the woods.

Set in one of the most colorful and scenic stretches of Southwest Florida – Verandah inspires members of this private community to explore a refined and fun-loving lifestyle enhanced by great facilities, numerous social activities, and 2 of the best 18 hole championship golf courses around, Old Orange and Whispering Oak.
Was not familiar with this course but I am so glad I had the chance to play. I am a 7 handicap who belongs to a very nice private club back home so really apprecited the beauty and challenge of the course. From the moment we dropped our clubs, checked in at pro shop, enjoyed lunch at Blossoms cafe overlooking Orange River, warmed up on the range, tee’d off and completed our round, my wife (riding along) and I thoroughly enjoyed the entire afternoon. We played Old Orange and were paired with Ed and Lynn from Maryland who were an absolute delight to play with. Course conditions were excellent. Tee boxes were cut perfect and in great condition as were the fairways. Generous landing zones but certainly not trouble free. No GPS on carts so would recommend you have your own device along to help appreciate some of the subtle challenges that could result in penalty strokes. Greens had been top dressed but played true, perhaps a little bit slower than they might normally be? A great mixture of brute holes that would challenge the best of golfers down to shorter more strategic holes were positioning is more critical. And elevation changes not typical of most Florida golf courses. Pace of play was reasonable at 4 hours 20 minutes - starter says they aim for 4 hours. At $119 a great value compared to many other area courses at similar price point. I hope public access contyto be an option as this course will be on my list to play over and over.

I am a 63 year old guy who had tried to correct my swing and ball position on my own. Needless to say things got much worse. Had a lesson from Trey who changed my grip and swing pattern. At first it was a bit overwhelming but his patience and explanation and drills made a lot of sense. Using alignment sticks who taught me how easy it was to make the correct swing path using these tools. Also telling me on my back swing to slow it down. He says you don’t hit the ball on your back swing. Overall after more times at the range it has been working and I am grateful to Trey for making this experience so positive and rewarding. If anyone feels the need to have a lesson go to Trey Sones and you will be glad you did. Thanks Marty Wood

Played here many times while I visited Fort Myers January 2021. Very challenging golf course. Need to Drive the ball in the fairway. Make accurate iron shots to challenging greens. Consider putting from the fringes even when you have a steep incline. Chipping very tough. Greens quick and smooth. Loved it. I must mention the friendly staff as well!
