I love it

The greens on this D. Ross course are fast and fantastic. The greens are the best I have played this year. You must keep the ball below the hole on these 11.5 greens The course hosted the ladies pro Symetra Tour this yr and the FL State Mid Am. What a top notch course !

Hidden Donald Ross Gem

Sara Bay CC is one of my favorite courses to play in Florida, and that's a big compliment coming from an avid Floridian golfer. Typical of Donald Ross designs, this course has a lot of up-side down bowl greens that put a premium on your approach shots. The surface of most greens also contain lots of undulations which adds to the charm and challenge of this course. I would also say the fairways are narrow but the course isn't too lengthy even from all the way back so most intermediate golfers can hit 3 wood off the tee when they need to.
