Newly renovated Harborside course was in perfect condition. Greens are a challenge so don't get above the hole or your putt may wind up off off the green. There is a par five on the Blue nine that is a severe dogleg right and scary enough to make your knees quake! Beautiful views of pristine Sarasota Bay and the Sarasota... More

The hotel did compensate us when we complained, however, for the first time in nearly 20 years we were disappointed that the Harbourside Golf, as the only one open until October, was in such poor condition.

3 different nine hole courses, red, white and blue. Blue is the most challenging, following by white and the easy red course. Typical Florida golfing here, lots of sand water and hazards. This is a position course and not for long drivers. The course is well maintained

We had a company tournament. The course was in perfect condition. Carts and rental clubs were ready for us. Service was excellent. The beverage cart was always nearby! Finished the round in 3 1/2 hours. A perfect day.

The driving range is great and free with your room stay. Small pond has jumping fish in it, very cool.

Went to this course in an ongoing effort to get a rise out of my putter After seeing the sights of 80 year old women my flaccid putter became inert. After a quick diversion to cheetahs. I was able to not only perform on the course but also on the beach as I chased around those gggilfs

Each of the three courses is a little different that makes for an enhanced experience. Staff at all courses experienced.

This, and the Islandside Course, also owned by the Long Boat Key Club Hotel and Resort, are the best and only golf courses on Long Boat Key., and there are none on Anna Maria or Siesta Key. Courses are pretty narrow and lots of water. Maintained well for a Hotel/Resort set up, but just OK to a private club standard.... More

Can be played by members and guests of the Longboat Key Resort. Beautiful layout and interesting links. Of the three nines I'd play the Blue Herron and Red Hawk courses.
