Not far from Naples, the golf course at Kensington Golf & Country Club is a creation of renowned architect Robert Trent Jones Jr., who for more than three decades has set and continually raised the standard of innovation in golf course design.
Kensington epitomizes Jones design philosophies and his recognition of the games traditional concepts. “Brains not brawn is essential” says Jones.
The course follows a “core” design which means there is virtually no interruption or intrusion of residential areas within the course property. This, combined with a landscaping theme that integrates native vegetation common to Southwest Florida, neatly blend with the preserve areas and unique crushed coquina shell transition areas.
The 6879 yard par 71 masterpiece boasts a hefty slope rating of 135 and a course rating of 73.6 from the championship tees. However, one of the best qualities of the course is its versatility for players of all skill levels. The most consistent comment and greatest compliment received from members and guests alike is the fact that the course plays differently every day which keeps it fun and interesting all of the time. This achieved by multiple tee locations on every hole matched with small undulating greens.
Organized tournament activities and lesson programs offered from both PGA and LPGA Professionals complete the well rounded venue of this club.
Meticulous maintenance with attention to every detail makes Kensington Golf and Country Club golf’s “crown jewel” of Naples. Don’t miss it.
In 2013, for the third consecutive year, Kensington Golf & Country Club was designated by the readers of the Naples Daily News as the Best Private Country Club and Community of the Year in Southwest Florida – and it’s no wonder.
