Pace of play ruined the day
Nice facilities, friendly staff, fun track - but 4 1/2 hours to play in 2-somes??? Really???
“Rangers” were a joke. They ”visited” with us and the group(s) ahead of is twice and did nothing to pick up pace. Yes, I understand it’s. resort course, but mid-morning on a weekend should be able to get a round completed in under 4 hours.
It’s a shame, but we’ll be hard pressed to go back.
You’re complaining about 4 1/2 hours at a resort course, mid-morning on a weekend? 4 1/2 hours is impressive. Next time enjoy the views and relax. Book the 7am if you need to get off the course quickly.
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.
