Beyond the look out for the " crabby" starter. I totally agree with some other reviewers. Sure it was early and we were first off, but if you don't like the job get one you are not dealing with people. Also the driving range does not open until 8 am he told us rather abruptly and we had a 7:37... More

This course was beautiful! The course is very challenging, but a lot of fun. Thanks to the two we were paired up with, we knew what to expect. We would go back for sure. Summer is a good time to go because the rates are better.

Played on Saturday May 10th. Course was in good shape some of the bunkers either need more sand or needs to be raked deeper. The play time was excellent, too. The staff was very friendly.

Course in excellent condition. wide fairways and layout beautiful. Great options with 3 nines. Each nine different. Price is higher than a lot of courses in the area but totally worth every penny. After we played I found several coupons and ways to get a discount which I will make use of next time. Pro shop was amazing. Unfortunately we... More

When in the Sarasota area this is a must play course. Its a beautiful layout with 3 nines. The fairways are wide enough to ensure playability for the average golfer and is woman friendly. The greens are fast and true with a moderate amount of undulation. Prices are in the $50-$70 range, and tee times can be made online. All... More

This golf course is always in excellent condition. Attention is payed to all the areas surrounding the fairways making for a very pleasant gaming experience. The fairways are perfectly manicured. The greens are very fast and true with some, but not a lot of undulation. I gave it 4 stars only because the layout is rather routine. Very little distinction... More

Everytime I am in Sarasota, I try to play University: A beautifully layed out course with 27 holes (1-9 feature the par 3 water hole off University parkway, 10-18 are narrow, but shorter; 19-27 are wider but longer); plenty of sand and water, but not ridiculously challenging for the average duffer. Not a course for kids or slow beginners (Bobby... More
