We are members and always have a wonderful experience at University Park County Club. The staff is very courteous, professional and friendly. Great lunches and Sunday Buffet in the Park Grill. Dinner is for members only and the food and varying menu is outstanding!

We played when touring Florida it was one of the recommended courses by our hotel (Marriott courtyard) only 5 minutes away. The course was in very good condition and well laid out. Prices at usd 55 before 1 pm usd 40 after, was a very fair price for the quality. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

Played University Park twice this past week with my son. The golf course has a nice variety of holes and multiple tee options that will appeal to golfers of varying abilities. My son is a scratch golfer and thoroughly enjoyed playing the course from the Diamond tees (7,000+ yards). I am an 11 index and enjoyed playing from the Platinum... More

I had the experience of playing golf at this country club. I was impressed by the use of land and water to create a very challenging course. The course was fair but required you to really think about shot placement. No two holes were the same and the course offers something for golfers of every level. While there are homes... More

Right in the heart of Sarasota this place is so convenient and is well maintained facility. Full value for the $80 odd we paid for 18 holes. Great conditions and kudos to the groundsmen who have kept this facility in great shape. The greens were fast but my buddies and i thoroughly enjoyed the outing. Strongly recommend.

We found this course last winter and made it our "home" course. They have 27 holes of nicely manicured golf. We're back this winter and played University Park yesterday and it was in the same great shape. The greens are dormant right now so they are all painted green. They look like they would play slow but they roll pretty... More

This course is well organized and well kept and the staff in the pro shop where very friendly. Managed to get a good on-line deal so the cost was reasonable also. Course condition was excellent and the layout was great too. Started 1.30 and just managed to get done before the 5.30 sunset.

There are 3 great nines at University Park. Any combination is a winner. Very nice restaurant. Try the Gazpacho!! Negatives are the bad attitude of the starters and pace of play. Can be very slow!
