Manatee County Golf Course is a decent public course which has continued to get better conditions over the last several weeks. Greens are smoothing out. Fairways are quite good. Tees still need work, but tees on any public course take a beating. Pace of play was great, since the course was not crowded and we got out as a twosome with no one in front of us. Played 18 in under three hours!
Some improving conditions
Manatee is a county course and gets a lot of play. We played here two weeks ago and found it in decent, but not great shape. Yesterday, it showed signs of improvement. Greens are still a bit rough, but playable. Fairways in fairly good shape. Tee boxes are getting better, not as rough as two weeks ago. Staff is always great. Overall, a good value, especially if you don’t expect too much.
Course was in GREAT SHAPE for this time of year, Staff was very friendly! We will be back for sure!
Fun Day on the course
Fun day at the Manatee Golf Course. Course is in good shape especially considering the heat and the rain. Pace was good. Staff was friendly and the beer was cold!
When you come to the Pro Shop you are greeted as a valued customer, this goes for the restaurant and cart barn
Then you play golf, I played in the summer and had no waiting on the course for a morning round
Good place to play again
Had a blast!
They've had their ups and downs but the course looks pretty good and is always a great value, staff is excellent!
Nice Muny.....Very friendly staff, Hannah in the Pro shop was very nice, had a fun time playing 18 with my two youngest children, 13 and 10.......Watch out for the Squirrel on 12, he stole a whole bag of peanuts right out of the cart while we were on the Green..lol......Will play this course again when we come back next year.
This course not as bad as some reviews.
Played as a twoSome starter let us start on back nine so we wouldn’t be held up. This course has improved since I played it two years ago. Close to beach good value.
Close to the islands and great value!
I think it's the closest course to the islands without having to drive an hour each way which is nice. Greens were rolling great unlike what I read in some reviews but so many people don't realize that it is aerification season right now which they did back in May but all good now. Staff was awesome and the price was right, I will be back next week.
Don't waste your money
I played this course back in April and it was in great shape for being a county course which led me to coming back. Since then the fairways have died out, the teeboxes are just as bad and the greens have dead spots all throughout the front 9. I won't go back until I see five consecutive solid reviews of the condition.
I used to play this course a lot when I lived in Manatee County. Closed 2 years ago to redo greens. Last year, this site reports bad to horrible green conditions. Yesterday, greens were horrible, lots of bare or moldy dead patches. Fairways were poor, many weeded areas, dead patches, and tractor ruts. Tee boxes a mess, lots of high grass and weeds everywhere. This used to be a beautiful course. No more. Either poor management, poor supervision, or lack of funding for course maintenance. No excuses. I played for $10 on a Golf Now hot deal. A waste of money, an embarrassing conditions. Stay away or be forewarned if conditions. I’ve seen barnyards that we’re better suited for golf.
Great Price, Poor Conditions
Very cheap, but the course needs a lot of work, the lines between fairway and rough are blurred. For a cheap round of golf however, it is fine i guess.
Greens have been punched and over seeded. So forget about a true putt. I would give it awhile before you spend your money at this time.
Easy and good for the price
Nice and easy does it here...No frills , just ok and nice people running it.. A deal for $15..
Manatee County Golf Course
Work on the fairways is in progress. #13 has been sodded over the marshy areas. The greens are in the best shape I've seen ever since we first golfed there over five years ago.
Have played this course many times in the past , however never this slow . Several holes were a standstill while 2 or 3 foursomes waited to tee off .. should have called it and asked for a future credit. I will not do this again until its less busy.
Managementthere was no management of the course it appeared that it was overbooked took in excess of five hours to play
