Harbourside, like Links, greatly improved

Forget what you knew about this course before (which certainly wasn't terrible), the new version of Harbourside at Longboat Key Club is one of the must plays in the Sarasota area. With a recent renovation by Ron Garl, the course is both playable and beautiful with plenty of great vistas of the surrounding bay and marina. Most spectacular is the new Platinum Paspalum grass, which gives this 18 holes 27-hole venue perfect confitions (The White Course still has Bermuda in the fairways). The greens are perfect and golfers love the way the ball sits up on the turf in the fairways and light rough.

Very rude staff

The date of play may be off. My husband and I were so excited to play this course. We asked our very pro to arrange play for us. After paying a hefty $175 each fee we were completely disappointed with the course conditions. When we asked for a rain check to come back when the course was in better shape the pro from MA acted as though we were way out of line. The greens were in horrible condition The pro was unable to see the greens. We understand courses have issues sometimes. I can't imagine the difficulty of keeping this course in good condition. The problem being the hefty fee and the rude Pro. Although it's a private course play is allowed when you stay at the resort. We will never go back.
