Esplanade at Azario Lakewood Ranch
Another Lakewood Ranch GEM.
This course will rival the Commander course just down the road.
Wide fairways with lots of bunkering to frame holes and as usual u can play “away” from the numerous water hazards.
Azario has been open for a week but conditions are excellent.
Greens r a bit slow but I was told they will speed up by Fall.
Some golfers will love them as they are and curse them later when they get faster. Not me. I can’t wait to play them at 10.5-11.5 on the stimp.
Greens are average size but none of them r FLAT!!
This is the true challenge of Azario. Bring ur short game!!
Right now it’s the beat bargain in town as Esplanade is trying to get traffic for its new community, so go play it ASAP.
Rates won’t stay this cheap for long.
My favorite hole is the short par 3 12th! Front pins will give u good birdie chances. Can’t wait to see the flag back left where the gambler will have to hit it over Or around the twenty foot tree that guards it!!
Azario is in my top five courses in the area. Including two private ones!
A MUST PLAY!!! ENJOY
