Excellent condition, as always. Good, pretty fast greens. Nice fairways (didn't see a lot of them). Pace of play, excellent. Worth playing, even if you're a beginner, or a single digit.

The course was in the best condition of any course we played this winter. Tees, fairways, and greens were in great shape. However, there were too many players booked on this day. We finished in over 5 hours, with four groups on the same hole at times. The ranger said it was backed up all the way forward.

Being my first time playing this course it certainly was value for money booking via golf now.

If you have a chance playing this course you will not be dssappointed.

Fairways and tees were in great condition.

Signature par 3 hole over the water was a real pleasure to play.

Although we were behind a Very slow foursome, which Marshal has advised many times, this golf course worth to be played.

It is my favourite course in Bradenton area.

Overall conditions are awesome!

Fantastic course. A must play if you are in the area. The only issue we had was no access to purchase food or beverage after 4pm with a 1:30pm tee off.

The Good: Beautiful semi-private country club complex near the airport is dubbed as "The Best of Sarasota Golf" and the course doesn't disappoint. Has a Magnolia Lane feel as you drive into the complex with huge parkland style trees for a Floridian course. Ron Garl design is 27-hole complex (played holes 1-18) has plenty of room off the tee but challenging approach shots. Superb Par 5's, good variety in Par 4's, and solid Par 3's (particularly on the opening nine). Very nice course conditions and excellent greens that can pose reach problems if not on your game. Fantastic off-course amenities includes beautiful clubhouse, nice driving range and separate restaurant facility (although only open to non-members on certain day/times). On-course staff is very accommodating. While within a large residential community, you never feel like you're playing within a bunch of condos. Good value for overall quality of course and country club-esque experience (especially if after 11am).

The Bad: No GPS is a bummer given the price tag. Some of the Par 4's have awkward driving angles due to large sentinel or overhanging trees. While I didn't personally experience, several members of my total group felt the staff acted as though as non-members we were a nuisance and the members were snobbish. Pace of play was a serious issue for an afternoon weekday round.

The Verdict: A unique, beautiful parkland style course in western Florida is arguably the best course in the Sarasota/Bradenton area. If it weren't for being treated like outcasts, would recommend even higher.

Best Hole: Of the 1-18 holes, the medium length Par 4 9th has a peninsula green approach that is tough!
