General Comments:

Just got back from Naples. Stayed at the Ritz Carlton and played its well known Tiburon Black Course. The course was designed by Greg Norman. Played from the tips: 7005 yards. The course has a 74.2/147 rating. Expensive: $200 a round and $100 for Twilight after 4PM.
This course is a bull. Typical Norman. No roughs only fairway and jungle on the sides. Even if you hit to the edge of the fairway, there is a good chance the ball will end up in jail. A zillion waste bunkers that look like crushed shell and sandstone. A lot of the traps are thinned out with no sand under the surface.
My take: this course is not worth the money. Nice views but not exceptionally interesting layout. Doesn’t feel fair and doesn’t look like anything more than target golf at its extreme. I believe a true golf course should have first and second cuts of rough to challenge the golfer, not bush and bramble off every fairway to penalize any shot not in the short grass.
