Hard Greens, Great Course

I played this course with my wife and we both enjoyed to challenge offered by the course. The forward tees equalized the course for us, as I played the blues and we both played to our hadicaps. As long as you hit the ball relatively straight, you should have no problem enjoying this course and shooting a fairly competitive round. For those who enjoy wildlife, there is plenty to see throughout the course. Make your tee time and enjoy.

One of the best in the area!

Misty Creek is my favorite course in the Sarasota area. The greens are fast but not hard, and hold shots well. Fairways and tee boxes are in excellent shape. The course has a variety of holes from mostly open to very narrow and challenging. Pace of play was great on the Saturday that we played, just less than four hours even though we waited at times. The staff is an added bonus, very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this course.

Great course, good shape.

This course was a pleasant surprise, t-boxes and fairways age in great shape, greens are good (recent aeration) some are fast some a slower hard to get the speed right. Overall a great experience, will be back to play again. Love the layout, you must place shots to get to the greens. A good challenge for shot making.
If you have not played this course, you are missing out.

Very pretty

Love this course. I have played it several times now. Joe the starter is quite the character and helpful. Just don’t go there hungry, sandwiches are good, but no breakfast sandwiches.

Shaner

Played Misty Creek for the second time in a week and enjoyed it very much. Our playing partners Lou and Eileen from NC were great companions. The course is in great shape and the greens very fast, with several difficult pin placements. Better be below the pin or you’ll roll past. Lots of wild life, including a gator and deer. The round took a bit longer than expected at 4 and a half hours but no long waits. Several dog legs on the back nine make the back a challenge. We will definitely be back soon.

Too Bad

I played Misty Creek for the first time recently. This course is an excellent test, perhaps too excellent. There are a lot of holes with blind doglegs and first time players might have trouble managing their game because of it, Unless you can consistently hit around 200+ off the box I recommend the Green/White combo still a great test. Great greens.
But our round was ruined by slow play and obvious over booking. Regular members drove by us after giving up and said they never saw it so bad. When I contacted the Golf Director 3 days later he promised to get back to me with an answer. That never happened J., How slow was it? At the turn the halfway hut was closed!
Too Bad.
Too bad for us that a course I'd rate a 4/5 is now a 2 because of the pace of play and lack of response and service,

Beautiful course, but watch out for those greens!

Very well maintained course, challenging but not punitive. Helpful staff. Beautiful setting, almost like a nature park with abundant wildlife. But as far as the greens go, you might as well be putting in the parking lot. If you barely tap the ball on a short putt and miss, you could find yourself 6 or 8 feet away. Please put some water on them!

Always Beautiful

I hate to give this course great reviews cause I don't want too many people playing it. But, I love the staff and they make the place very inviting. The layout is OK but the grounds are just exquisite and they leave so much including the cart paths natural. The greens they put in two years ago are fast and pure. Love the place

Not consistent

The play starting at 10:30 was incredible slow. At times four groups on the same hole. The greens were dressed with sand and their was not any notification on GolfNow.. one of the few times - after 2 1/2 hours - left after 9 holes.

Enjoyable Challenge

Misty Creek has made some improvements . Grass and greens are the best I have Experienced in past 10 years although the greens were recently sanded.
Diversity of narrow fairways and large greens are a real challenge to keep the ball in play. Reasonable green fees contribute to a pleasant enjoyment of this course.
