Golf is an important part of Naples and its History. There’s a story that goes something like this… Shortly after the Naples Beach Hotel Course was built, a small single engine airplane would often land on one of the fairways. The pilot would disembark and play a round(9 holes then), climb in his plane and depart. This was fine until a new Course Superintendent came on board. When he saw this, he immediately chased the flyer away(off HIS fairways). Mr. Lindbergh never landed on the course again!!! Golfers have been coming ever since by boat, car, train, and once again by air.
