Welcome to The Leadbetter Golf Academy at Old Corkscrew Golf Club

Amid the paradise known as Southwest Florida, where golfers may choose from more golf courses per capita than most places in the world, Old Corkscrew has become legendary.

Originally built as an “ultra exclusive, ultra high-end facility where the membership initiation was meant to approach $185,000, Old Corkscrew was transformed into a Guest access masterpiece and home of The Leadbetter Golf Academy, Southwest Florida.  Perhaps it’s our 7,400 yd. Jack Nicklaus Signature Design course or being a certified Audubon International Silver Signature Sanctuary. Immerse yourself in the boundless natural beauty of Old Corkscrew and see for yourself.

A Certified Audubon International Silver Signature Sanctuary, Old Corkscrew is Southwest Florida’s #1-rated Golf Course by Golf Magazine. Only a legend like Jack Nicklaus could master nature and golf to create such a memorable experience.

Eighteen holes of world-class championship golf are woven into a tapestry of mature oaks, pines, cypress trees, lakes, prairie grass and wetlands – a natural habitat for a spectacular variety of indigenous species including alligators, tortoises, raccoons and water birds. Natural cart paths make their way around continued fairways and a restored natural flow darting in and out of wooded areas.
