Tom Fazio ~ Golf Digest's #1 Architect of the Top 100 Golf Courses in America.

Windstar on Naples Bay was Tom Fazio's first design for a private golf course in Naples, FL and Southwest Florida. Fazio emphasizes the premise that "golf courses should reflect the natural beauty of their environments."Maintaining that principle, Fazio Golf Course Designers strives to follow design priorities that include creating harmonious transitions from existing topographical conditions. Tom's commitment to environmental design inspired our staff and Membership to pursue Audubon accreditation. In 1998, Windstar on Naples Bay was designated a "Certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary", an honor only a select group of Clubs in the United States have received. To attain certification, a course must demonstrate and maintain a high degree of environmental quality in areas, such as Environmental Planning, Wildlife & Habitat Management, Outreach and Education, Water Conservation, and Water Quality Management.

Fazio attributes his success to maintaining a team concept in design shared by the ten senior associates on his staff. In designing Windstar on Naples Bay, Tom carved out a course that travels around the borders of our Mangrove Preserves and lakes. Like all Fazio course designs, there is a game for all skill levels. Each hole has its own personality to ensure each round provides for a different challenge from game to game.

In 2003, the Fazio Team was commissioned to undertake a major course reconstruction. Significant updates were made including a computerized irrigation system, greens reconstruction under USGA spec standards using champion turf grass, and laser leveled tee boxes to mention a few.
