Featured PGA Tour Destination: Naples, Florida

QBE Shootout

Set into motion by renowned golfer Greg Norman in 1989, the QBE Shootout is an unofficial money championship on the PGA Tour. It is a team golfing championship played at the Tiburón Golf Club in Naples, Florida each year.

This 3-day tournament involves 54 holes which need to be navigated by teams of two. The first round of the tournament is the Scramble, the second is the Greensomes and the final is the Better Ball. This format, which has been in place since 2014, has been the toughest format followed at the QBE shootout, since its inception. Some of the greatest partnerships the likes of Bryson DeChambeau & Kevin Na and 2017 defending champions Sean O'Hair & Steve Stricker have infused some of the most heart-thumping, nail-biting times to the game.

Tiburón enjoys two excellent and challenging golf courses laid out by Greg Norman. Although this Floridian forested wetland setting has little in common with Britain's windswept sand dunes, Norman designed the Gold course to have something of the playing characteristics of a British links layout.

Both Golf Digest and GOLF Magazine ranked this course in their Top 20 Golf Facilities in Florida. The Gold and Black courses have also been awarded the Audubon International Certification, making them one of the premier, championship courses on the East Coast.

Should you want to tee off else where:

The Naples Beach Hotel & Golf Club is home to a good quality golf course, popular with local golfers. The tree-lined and open parkland layout contains a variety of attractive holes and pleasant features, which should provide an enjoyable test of golf at a generally affordable rate. Worth a visit if you are in the area and have some time to spare.

Naples Grande Golf Club: Rolling fairways, rock-filled streams, stone-fronted water hazards and two fabulous holes played to elevated, lakeside promontories are not typical ingredients for a southern Florida golf course. But these are only some of the distinctive features that grace this wonderfully absorbing Rees Jones design.

Lely Resort Golf & Country Club is home to three well-rated and always popular golf courses. The Classics by Gary Player is Lely Resort's private, member-only course with its own separate clubhouse.
