This course is in very good condition. The greens are fairly fast but true. The fairways are a bit tight on some holes. The overall course is very good. The staff are professional and curtios.

Overall a very good place to play. We played five rounds in two weeks we stayed in Bradenton area.

Course is very fair you can see it all . Good variety of holes and water is about but not so that it spoils things . Staff and facilities are 1st class . It’s got to be the best course in the area by a distance.

Just like all other reviews I saw when looking to play here. Everything is superb. Friendly staff, smooth entry over to practice area and first tee. Could hardly find an extra divot or ball mark to repair. Traps groomed, smooth , true and fast geeens, lush fairways and tees. Can't ask for more in good conditions . Can't wait to go back. Excellent.

UPC middle and back nines do not disappoint.

Early morning tee time assured a quick round

The fairways were in good shape. A bit wet from evening rain but overall in good shape.

Greens played very fast but fair.

Finished off with a fantastic brunch at the clubhouse

Great day- look forward to returning!

The course was in beautiful condition. Greens were in great shape. But, slow compared with those I've been playing. The staff were all exceptionally friendly and helpful. First time in this area. I would definitely come back.

This was a great course, friendly staff, good conditions and value for the price through golfnow. Play moved at a good pace and was enjoyable to play. Not overly difficult, but challenging enough. We would definitely play again and highly recommend.

My wife also enjoyed the good sales at the pro shop!

Nice stop on our vacation to SIesta Key from PA.

27 holes in the best condition anyone would want. Each nine has some friendly holes and one or two good tests. The signature par three on the first nine is spectacular and if one pulls their drive left of centre on hole nine the second shot to the green is around 185 yds carry over water to the green. A great course but fair and in great condition. A well stocked pro shop but don't take your wife or you'll never get out of there unscathed.

This is without a doubt one of the 5 best courses in Sarasota/Manatee County area. The only thing you have to understand when you go here is that even in the off season a round of golf can take 4+ hours. They space them out perfectly in 15-20 min intervals but almost every time we play here we catch up to a foursome, usually of women members, (just being honest), that could care less about who they are holding up. The staff is top notch and friendly but I don't think they want to tell some of the members to giddy up..

Front nine was great with pristine conditions, but holes 10-18 have maintenance opportunities. The greens on the back nine need weeks to heal, but overall University Pkwy was enjoyable and the pace of play was under 4 hours.
