I played the 1-9 and 10-18 course 2 days ago and the 19-27 and 1-9 combo today. Overall the course is in very good shape. The layout is nice with some challenges ahead for any errant shots. The fairways are clean and green. The bunkers are strategically placed but are easy to hit out of. Many holes have large waste bunkers, also in fine condition. The greens are mostly in very fine shape with a few of them having been recently repaired/sodded. The greens, however nice they look, are slow, slow, slow! That takes away a star. There is some water but not much of it comes into play. All 3 nines have a different feel. If you play at 11:00 or later the greens fee is only $69 including the cart and the range balls. I think that’s a great value! I didn’t have time to stay for a drink after the round but I heard that the facilities are great (from a member). Speed up the greens and I’ll be back to play again!

Fourth time we have played Uni Park over the last 4 years and it never disappoints. Five star rating is justified with a great layout that can test every level with a variety of tees from under 6000 to over 7000 yards. The fairways are immaculately prepared. The Greens are good but not overly quick. The customer service is first class. A drink in the 19th afterwards is expensive but has to be done. Can't wait to play again.

This is the 4th course that I have played in the Sarasota area and is by far the best. They have 27 holes and we ended up playing 10-27 and were not dissapointed. The course is a bit expensive but well worth the price.

University Park is a challenging golf course. Five sets of tee boxes. Several blind looks from teeing area. Add a little wind and it’s all the golf course any body wants.

We were disappointed that the clubhouse was closed when we finished (ca 5.30 pm) We were looking forward to dining! It looked so lovely when we had a snack before the game! Gorgeous facility and we will be back!
