Buying property in Palmer Ranch area and wanted to try the local course. They request a 2 day call in advance but got right on. Played as a 2 some for the entire day. Did not wait long and took our time. Course was in great shape and greens were challenging. Great signage with water and bathrooms on every 5 holes. Some challenging holes while not an overly long course, the greens were undulating and not easy for a northerner to read. Holes are independent of each other and i cant remember having a single fairway side by side. Good experience for $ 53 all in fee and was surprised by the low green fee. Range was in great shape.. lots of practice and lessons going on. Great facility.

I recommend this course

I'm sure the previous reviewer played the Stoneybrook in Brandenton. This course is private in Jan., and the other Stoney has been a bad experience for me and many others as per it's reviews.

Stoney in Sarasota is excellent, greens , fairways and bunkers. It is a must play if your a good golfer and can get on it. This course is not on Golfnow as of this review.

paid $130 for range balls, round, and cart. The range was virtually grassless. Most of the tee boxes were closed and as I was playing with golfers with handicaps from 11-15, we chose the white tees which was to play about 6,000 yds. Most tee boxes were closed. 7 of the 9 holes on the front were set up for a 2,800 yard 9 and they pushed 2 holes back about 75 yards to keep the total close to "as advertised" about the same on the back. When we asked why we weren't told about conditions, the response from Mr Steele was "so what did you shoot? If you didn't break par, you shouldn't be complaining". We were civil and he was beyond obnoxious. They did not disclose anything about the course conditions-----just awful.

Pace of Play: Average

Course Conditions: Poor

Staff Friendliness: Poor

Value for the Money: Poor

Quality of food & beverage: Average

Off-Course Amenities: Poor

Course Difficulty:  Fairly Easy
