Enjoy an optimum golf course in Naples, Florida for players of all skill levels at the private Naples Grande Golf Club. Acclaimed golf architect Rees Jones designed a par 72 championship course that proves both interesting and challenging. Each hole at this demanding course promises an exhilarating new experience. With extraordinary elevations and unique water features expertly incorporating the indigenous Florida foliage, this course offers stunning fairways for year-round play at our Naples, Florida golf resort.

The Naples Grande Golf Course is the first facility in southwest Florida to feature an outdoor True Spec experience. Partnering with GOLF Top 11 teacher Mark Durland, the True Spec container provides a fitting matrix that boasts more than 30,000 club head and shaft combinations to find the perfect club to improve your game. The container is adjacent to a real grass fitting bay, an optimal set-up similar to what golf pros have access to at tour events.

What They're saying

  • The BSA Convention offers the best opportunity for the leadership of distributors and manufacturers to grow their relationships and set strategy for mutual business growth. This year, attendance at the convention is a must for all of us, to be able to move forward and rekindle those relationships that have been compromised over the past year.

  • I thought assigned seating for Sunday evening was a great idea. The "team" event made it an even better experience!

    – Jeff Williams, General Bearing Corporation

  • Great convention. Liked the change in the business program. Speakers were relevant to our industry. Social events were fun.

    – Jim Fitzpatrick, Bearing Specialty Company

  • I very much liked the assigned seating, and felt that pushed people to meet each other - as a first time attendee, I liked it very much.

    – Charles Estermann, Weimer Bearing &Transmission, Inc.
