Definitely one of the best courses in the greater Sarasota area. The price is right off season. During peak season it is overpriced so I do not play here. It is extremely well run including marshalls on course to keep things in order.

Great layout and well maintained. It was quite apparent that the greens crew really understood how to maintain the course. Greens a bit slow but they putted “true”.

Worth the visit and I will be back. Really nice having 27 holes to play.

We played on Sat and it was a beautiful day for golf. The course was in excellent shape overall. The greens were punched 10 days ago so they were coming in nicely. Great layout. The 3 9's make it really challenging.

Will be back

The course and area is very nice, we paid for green fees without anyone telling us the greens had been airated and that the greens were also top dressed. So you can imagine when we get to the first green and see all the holes and sand, NO NOTIFICATION

Brought 3 friends who were visiting from out of state to University Park for round. Course is beautiful and extremely well maintained. Great layout and challenging enough for my friends who are good golfers overall. We played the whites which was long enough. As testimony to challenge, they scored in low 90's when they normally shoot in mid to high 80's at their home courses. They were impressed by the lushness of the landscaping and the beauty of the layout. As usual, the staff was extremely friendly and all had a good time. The stop at the grill after the round finished off a delightful day overall. They were impressed.

The only negative was lack of gps carts, which a number of other courses in area now offer routinely. It would make a huge positive difference if these were available here. It wold take a very good experience and make it great!

A true challenge and yet very rewarding! Would have liked to play the front nine but understand the members get preferential treatment!

I visit a buddy who just built a home in the area and I'm sure I'll be back.

We played the course in 4 hours and 15 minutes but were given the impression that we were slow when starting the back nine

We had a threesome but starter told us that we had a single joining us and one of our group had to get on the single person’s cart because only two carts were allowed per foursome.

Yet the group behind us was only a twosome so why was the single put with our group and one of our group evicted from his golf cart?

Also we say many examples of three carts being used per foursome.

I guess that the rules are only applied selectively.

Beverage cart woman was excellent.

Not impressed with starter or marshall who criticised us yet we were a foursome and group behind was a twosome.
