Course Review and Comments
Hard fairways, in many placed devoid of grass. Greens are bare in many places. Number 10 is very narrow, and balls from the tiny driving range come flying in as you set up for your second shot. You'll need a bloodhound to find your ball in the fairway at 10, due to the dozens of range balls littering the fairway (and rough). No practice green to speak of, and no pitching area. I took my father in law, who belongs to a club in Naples, and he thought the whole course should be marked 'ground under repair.' With no irrigation reaching the "B" areas you are surrounded by very scruffy and dry areas along most fairways. Could be good, but needs a lot of work. A whole lot.

I am really amazed at the redesign and facelift Binks Forest had quietly undergone. It's a hidden gem in our own backyard. I'll be back often.

I don't find a form here to retract a statment, so I'll add a new one. It will begin with a public aplogy to head groundskeeper Tim Haines and his crew. I made my comments before hearing all of the fa

In response to the comment by Linda Curcio, who claims that I "was in the circle of totally fighting against Binks revival," let me set the record stgaight. I never fought against the reviva

This will address the lone complainer(Bill U) about the conditions of Binks. He is in his normal 'complain about everything' mode. When we, who were fighting for the rebirth of Binks, he was in the c

I read these glowing reviews and wonder if they weren't written by Binks Forest staff. The course is in very bad shape, yet they keep saying "give us time." I'l do that - give lots of time b

The course has recently been re-opened after years of neglect. Its in very good shape with firm fairways and hard greens. A very difficult course from the back tees but one of the better ones I have

The NEW Binks Forest Golf will be the BEST Semi Private in Southern Florida when it's fully matured. Play it now and it's almost there. Exciting, challenging, great fairways, bunkers, best greens.
