Tiburón Golf Club is a golf club located in Naples, Florida. It has two courses, Gold and Black, both designed by Greg Norman, twice the winner of the Open Championship and formerly the top-ranked player in the world. From Australia, Norman's nickname on the PGA Tour was the "Great White Shark", and tiburón is the Spanish word for shark.

The Gold Course hosts the annual QBE Shootout (formerly Franklin Templeton Shootout), originally the "Shark Shootout", an off-season golf event hosted by Norman that includes members of the PGA Tour and PGA Tour Champions. The tournament debuted in California in 1989 and moved to Tiburón in 2001.

Since 2013, the Gold Course has also hosted the season-ending event of the LPGA Tour, the CME Group Tour Championship, held in November.

The Black Course hosts the Chubb Classic, a Champions Tour Event held in February.

  • I had an opportunity to play the Tiburon Black Course in Naples, FL for a reduced greens fee so I jumped at the chance. Normally this course charges $325 and is open to the public (or the 1% that can afford to spend that kind of money on golf). As a guest, I paid $125 and the course lived up to my expectations in terms of beauty, creative design and value. The greens fee includes a high quality practice facility with unlimited range balls, a large chipping area and several putting greens. The greens were about a 10 on the stimpmeter so they weren’t too fast but they did roll “pure” which took getting used to. I played the white tees on the Black Course which is approximately 6,100 yards. The first thing that struck me is how beautiful each hole is framed from each tee box. Both courses were designed by Greg Norman and I like his layout because it had generous fairways with second shots that always required shot-making. The risk/reward decisions on every hole added a level of excitement and fun, especially when I was able to pull them off (1/4 of the time :). There’s water that sneaks too close to the greens on several holes and if I get a chance to play this course again I would give more respect to these risks. They entice you to go for the flag when I should’ve stayed to the far part of the green and relied on putts. I would have scored better had I more experience on this course. There’s plenty of iced water and bathrooms available on the course as well as a well-stocked quench-cart driving around. The course is gorgeous with classic old-Florida flora and fauna. If you’re willing and able to get on this course with a member it’s worth the $125 greens fee. BTW, the food in Sydney’s Pub is wonderful. The chili might be the best I’ve ever had!
  • Great venue, great staff. My friend is a member there and they always remember his kids and his allergies, very attentive. Beautiful golf course too.
