Green are Massive
this course is in excellent condition. It is picturesque. I played there on a hot deal and unfortunately it was windy and colder. The course is long, fairways are like carpet and the green were an 11 on the day I played. It is wide and not therefore not many lost balls. My biggest issue was the greens. So MASSIVE it was like I was playing putt putt. One green must have been 60 yards long. They were also hilly and pin placements were almost unfair at times. I enjoyed the day and I would play again. Just wish the green were smaller.
Lots of blind shots and terrible pin placements. Two paces on over a bunker. Pin on 16 placed on severe slope and you can’t stop your ball. Seems to me they are more interested in the single digit handi cappers!
Fabulous greens, tough course
I think they moved more dirt than the average Florida course. More elevation changes. The greens are fabulous for a course this young, they are great for a mature course. I would like to play to a few more times before I pass final judgment, it’s definitely a course that requires a few rounds to judge fairly,, but my initial assessment is that it is a tough layout, very sensitive to wind,, enjoyable and requires most of the clubs in the bag on most days. I look forward to the next round there. I played it on a GolfNow deal, so it was a great value for me, but it is definitely worth top dollar in the area.
Challenging course but broad.
Nice lay-out. Many bunkers and a lot of waste area that gives the holes a challeging look.
The course is wide, so you dont lose many balls when you are not very straight. You cannhave a pleasant round here..
Wonderful Golf course. Beautiful practice facilities, the greens are very undulated, but fair, the course layout is great and the overall experience is terrific.
one of the best courses around
This course is absolutely beautiful it was a joy to play here. Staff were friendly from check in to check out. It was cold and windy but had a great time playing this course can't wait to come back and play again . Everything was in great shape.
Great course if you find the right rate. Booked with golf now and they kicked tee time back 30 minutes. Finished in semi darkness because of that. Quality golf course with great greens.
A wonderful course in every respect. Manicured beautifully; strategically built; fun, forgiving but challenging and part of an all-together well run operation. Practice facilities are great, too. Only gripe is back 9 can get slow and today was my second 4 hour 40 min round in a week. I see rangers out there, but I wish they’d be stricter regarding play-time.
All in all, I think it’s the best public course in Sarasota.
Love the course. I’ve played it 10 times now and its a great course. I’ll be back many more times
Slow play all day. We had 3 groups waiting on a tee at 3 different holes throughout the day. We did not see a ranger all day. We even sent an email through the GPS system with no response. Several groups left due to the slow play.
The staff did not address slow play. We were on several tees with 2 other foursomes waiting for slow players. We did not see a ranger all day. Very disappointing. Several groups left the coarse as a result.
Challenging + Fun
Great golf course, first time I’ve had a first nine with 3 par 3’s/4’s/5’s It was a superb FUN course with very tricky HUGE greens. Clubhouse not finished yet but would like to come back next year when finished
This course was a pure pleasure to play. The fairways are wide and water hazards are avoidable. The condition of the course is amazing and greens are flawless. Only negative is the difficulty putting on large, undulating greens that are very firm. We will go back!
Great course, forever to geta clubhouse
The course is terrific. But why is there still no clubhouse!? Keep raising rate but no amenities.
Good but slow
I've played here a lot. Had a tee time at 1 :15 and had to end it early because we couldn't finish it in time. It's a long course but shouldn't have to take 5 1/2 hours to play a round.
Wide fairways tricky greens cart paths in bunkers on many holes not special for price paid and bit of a building site
If you don’t like this course you don’t no anything about golf or what makes enjoyable.
A great gem
Really enjoyed our day!!! Generous fairways and very large greens. But definitely an interesting layout with lots of water and bunkers.
If you get the opportunity to play here do it!!!
