Rosedale is a true challenge with its great layout that winds through naturally wooded terrain, verdant environmental preserves and shimmering lakes. Each hole presents a new look and a different challenge. Fairways are beautifully maintained and can be tight. Designed by Ted McAnlis, Rosedale features his trademarks: rolling hills, spacious greens and island tee boxes. There are several holes where you'll feel completely alone among nature's splendor with nothing to disrupt the lush, native flora and fauna. This course will bring out your best and provide the setting for a memorable golf experience.

no forgiveness

This course is very tight not for someone who sprays the ball a little. The tee boxes and greens are in tragic shape. Wouldn't recommend this course any time soon. Dan S.

Challenging layout

The course requires straight shots otherwise you will be in or close to trouble. The course was in good condition until you get to some of the greens which were a little bare and sprayed green to cover parts which had no grass. I will return to play when the greens are in better shape because the course is beautiful and practice areas are very nice.

Not Now!

Course in really bad shape. This used to be one of my best maintained courses in Sarasota. But now, the greens and tee boxes were in bad, sickened shape. Greens sprayed with nitrogen to kill disease, from the first to the 18th tee.

Dear rodalvarez.
Thank you for taking the time to write about your recent visit to Rosedale. I sincerely regret that we did not meet your expectations. We have
experienced extremely wet weather that has impacted our normally superb conditions. To help us recover, the course will be performing some extensive agronomic practices starting 10/14 and will reopen on 10/24 with the same great conditions Rosedale is know for. I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to discuss this situation with you directly. Please contact me at our club administrative offices if you would like to discuss this matter further.

Respectfully,
Stuart Cobb, General Manager, Rosedale Country Club

great layout

First time here, starter let us go off the back due to front being very busy. Course built in low lying area making it very wet due to all the rain in Sarasota area. Great layout in decent shape even with the wet conditions. Will definitely play here again when we visit friends in Siesta.

Nice course. Friendly staff. Some of the fairways were challenging and narrow.

The fairways were still a little wet, but there had been a lot of rain recently. Greens must have been punched 3-4 weeks ago but were in good shape.

I would play here again.

Great condition

Course is narrow but a major problem. Well maintained, very clean, friendly staff. No GPS it helps lower the green fees. I have my own so not an issue. Played this course 3-4 times going back tomorrow.

Great day and great deal

Nice Course - rough back 9

Signed up for the first tee time of day due to hot temps. Played the front nine in 1:20 only to be greeted with 5 groups ahead of us at the turn. They apparently tee of both sides to get more groups off in the mornings to beat the heat. Had to wait for 2 groups to tee off on 10th hole before we were able to head out. Back nine took over 2 hours.

Be warned of an early tee thinking you will not run into any traffic.

Course was in good condition and enjoyed the round with the exception of the back 9 wait. Will be back.

2nd Experience- not as good

This was our 2nd round here. Pace of play of 2 members playing by themselves slowed play for 6 foursomes and a twosome. To top it off, it appeared none of the foursomes were playing "ready play". Or they didn't care about everyone behind them. Everyone was scheduled to tee off 2 minutes apart....

We will go back. But probably during off hours.

Greens still healing, Don’t play here for another 2-3 weeks

I like Rosedale a lot and have played it many times. This review is just a heads up that the greens are in rough shape from a heavy aeration 10 days ago. I called ahead and pro shop said they had healed nice and were rolling ok. NOT the case. Gonna take a good 2-3 weeks more. Very disappointing and a waste of your time to try and putt on the greens right now.

A hidden gem

Out of about 20 courses I have played since moving to Bradenton, this course was the nicest surprise. A few par 5s. Layout was a great combination of wildlife, homes and quiet course. Was not rushed. Nor did we have to wait for anyone. Some narrow fairways, and several hazards. Holes showed distances to hazards as well as the normal distance as once to green. Cant wait to play there again!

Not told

We were going to play this course about two weeks ago but had the warning of aeration. We decided to wait. We booked on golf now and there was not a warning of anything that I saw. The fairways were great but the greens were still unputtable from the aeration. We do not feel we got our moneys worth.
