The course need love
The course is not well maintained, the greens are bumpy with many brown spots.
Greens are unputtable... fairways and tee boxes are some of the worst that I have seen!!!
Beat up course
Not in good shape. Almost as bad as a few years ago when they killed all the greens. Tee boxes are bad too. Carts were OK.
Course conditions deteriorating.
One of the two Manatee county courses, this one is sliding back downhill. The greens are barely playable. Bald spots, weeds, uneven grass. The tees are showing signs of both age and wear. The divot holes on several tees made finding a level stance very challenging. Fairways are not too bad, but I’d hate to have to play the ball down and compete with anyone fairly. The contrast between Buffalo Creek and Manatee is dramatic. Greens fees are the same, but the courses are not.
Don’t waste your time and money
Probably the worst golf course I have ever played. Didn’t even bother to make the turn.
Nice afternoon at Manatee Golf Club in Bradenton
Four of us played and had a great time. Never had to wait, and no one had to wait for us. We played in about 3:15! Fairways were in great shape... and overall the course was in better shape than the last time we played it a couple of years ago.
Good course layout
Bad bad greens. Course was wet. Grass wasn't mowed. Lost a couple of balls just off fairway couldn't find them. Would not play again
Lots of water
The forecast showed a few showers possible, but at the tee-off time, the sky opened up and heavy rain began and lasted for about 35 min. We went off and tried to play but the conditions were terrible. We made it through 9 and quit as everything was mud. they should have closed the course and saved everyone a lot of aggravation.
Hot humid day
Nice tract but course was pretty wet. I thought I booked directly with course but was thru GolfNow so had the service fee and took extra time. Friendly staff, slot of cool wildlife on the course.
You get what you pay for!
Excellent value. Course was definitely a little weathered but was an excellent value. I was told to start on back nine and it was great( not very scenic due to a water treatment plant that spans half of the back nine. Pace of play was a bit slow once I finished the back nine and started on the front but not bad overall. I rented clubs for $25 and even though they were just Tour Edge clubs they played fairly nicely. Like I said you get what you pay for so don’t pay $25 for a round and expect championship quality golf. Staff was friendly and they’re working on getting the course back in shape. Only complaint was the amount of workers still on course at 11:00. I will probably play again if I’m back in the area. I have seen other courses not to far from here that are in better condition but haven’t played them yet so not able to compare value. This was the closest course to Anna Maria Island.
Good bang for the buck.
Visiting friends in the bradenton area from south east pa..Yes the course is not pristine but the value can not be beat. Course management seems to be aware of needed improvements and are addressing them. No issues that would prevent an enjoyable afternoon of golf. Jerry and Kevin were very helpful to ensure my wife and I a fun round.
Tough Bermuda grass and sand
Course in pretty good shape considering the hot and humid conditions
Slow, Slow, Slow
Fairways and greens are in average condition at best. A lot of the greens had multiple patches of sand. The tee boxes were terrible. This course needs a lot of work
it was a great time just not in the perfect condition but playable
It was a good time we got to practice and then go play on the course. i play for my school team and this is our home field we are just coming off a 6 and 1 season and hoping to repeat.
