Naples Lakes - King Collins
« on: February 23, 2018, 10:21:38 AM »
This is my parent's club in Naples, opened about 20 years ago as an Arnold Palmer signature design. Fun course with a few design quirks as would be expected from a real estate development.

It recently was renovated by Palmer design but also noticed the website mentioned construction and shaping by King Collins. That obviously piqued my interest in light of their great work at Sweeten's Cove.

Their website doesn't mention anything about the Naples Lakes work. Anybody here familiar with the work they did?

Site doesn't mention it because it's not a King-Collins project. Rob and Tad were shaping for Thad Layton. It looks quite cool, and I know Thad's very proud of it.
