First Time Playing

Two different 9’s and both awesome

Played this course for the first time. Played 19-27 then 1-9. Both 9’s were unique and in very good condition. 1-9 Greens had been recently punched but not bad at all. Staff very friendly and provided great service. Course in great condition. 4-5 tee boxes and greens were large. Would recommend to play again!

Hidden Gem

This was my second time playing there and it played as well as the first time, the course is in great shape from tee to green, the greens are slow like 87 south going to a Yankees game, that is the one knock I can give the course. The layout is inviting although there is no wow factor to the layout, I have only played 1-18 both times, hopefully I can play the other 9 soon. The starter Sunday morning seemed to think that letting our twosome out early was going to back the entire course up 15mins, news alert buddy, the nice little older women in front of us did that and of course there was no ranger on the course. We did see the cart girl a few times, which was great as it was very hot. All in all my experience at the course has been pleasant and I do endorse university as a must play.

Decent summertime value

We played here on 8/2/18 for about $60. The course was in pretty decent shape, but this was our third round down in the Bradenton area this week and it was the most expensive and compared to the other 2 courses, it was not even in the same ballpark in terms of niceness. Don't get me wrong, this course is nice, but we made the turn in exactly 2 hours and the ranger came out and tried to hurry us and the foursome in front of us along, which rubbed me the wrong way. Additionally, the carts did not have GPS and there were a ton of tee shots where water & bunkers came into play and we had no idea how far away those hazards were... It just seems to me that for the price they were charging, they should've provided GPS-enabled carts or a yardage book. We played Waterlefe and Lakewood National earlier this week and both of those places are both nicer & cheaper. I'd come back here again, but would be hesitant to pay $60. I'd play the other two aforementioned courses 5x before I'd play here again.

First Time Playing

Very nearly top class

This was our family three-ball’s first stop for golf during our Sarasota holiday/vacation. We prefer to play early in the morning and avoid the Florida heat (we’re Irish), so 7:15ish seemed perfect. First impressions were good; the cart guys and pro shop were friendly with no issues (aside from an older fellow), as was the starter. The course was a bit damp as to be expected at that time of the morning, added to by overnight rain. The only issue was that the range was closed for mowing - pretty disappointing as we we were looking forward to a good warm up. It would make sense to have this done prior to the 7am starters arriving? It is, after all, included in the price as advertised. We shoot around 75-85, and found that the emerald tees were a decent test for under-300 hitters. Greens weren’t lightning fast, but rolled true with few imperfections so no complaints there. The fairways aren’t very tight, but to score well it’s challenging enough to make it a fun test. The rest of the course held up great considering the rain and the heat of the summer season. We enjoyed it so much we returned twice in our fortnight’s stay, once a little later and the last at another early time. Again, the range was closed for the early one with no prior warning which was disappointing, but perhaps it was our complacency that it wouldn’t be the same again that led that to happen. But, the practice area was great when we got the chance to use it. Our biggest complaint was the fact the greens had been aerated without warning or green free adjustment for our last round. All in all, a great course with great service at a reasonable price, but a few niggles to be worked out to make it top class. The restaurant looked pretty good too, but we didn’t try it. Thanks for having us!
