Love this place!

Great value for the money! We played at Bobby Jones a lot over the last 2 months. We prefer the British course. It is longer and more open than the American course. The... read more

This course is in the worst condition of any course i have played in 20+ years. They told me they aerated a week ago so I wasn't expecting much, but good god this course has been devastated not aerated. I have played here before in tournaments and it has never been in real good shape but this is so bad... More

A friend & I played the British course on Sunday May 4, 2015. If Bobby Jones played with us he would have taken his name off the place. The greens were in terrible shape. Big black dead spots. My guess from mowing them so short & not letting them rest. Fairways were ok on some holes but bad on others.... More

Great value for the money! We played at Bobby Jones a lot over the last 2 months. We prefer the British course. It is longer and more open than the American course. The rates are reasonable and include a cart. We like to go out later in the day so we get the twilight rate and the course isn't as... More

We played the American Course and had a blast. wonderful short course and in decent condition. Staff were pleasant and play time was fine even though the course was busy. I broke 100 for the first time and almost beat my husband too. Will definitely play again when in the area next.

We enjoyed our rounds in December 2014 over Christmas Lots of choices as you can play 9 or 18 holes. Terrific prices, friendly staff and you can walk the course if you like Can't wait to get back

Played these courses many times over the past twenty years, unfortunately no money has been invested in improving or even keeping them up to scratch. I do understand that money has now been set aside for improvements over the next year.i hope this happens as it would be a great loss to Sarasota without Bobby Jones Courses.

I meet a couple of friends for a round on the American course. The company was great the course was OK. Pro shop not super friendly but not hostile. They could use some costumer service training. The course was not that special for $52. The buildings were in disrepair and the whole place looked shabby. Having heard of this course... More

Staff was nice, course was challenging from the 1st hole. Since I live near Pittsburgh, playing these southern courses helps my appreciation for the game. It is a municipal course so expect less then perfect conditions. That being said, I really enjoyed the challenges of the 2nd shots and the roll of the greens. Great price for afternoon play.

I went golfing with my 14 year old son today (July 22nd). We showed up without a tee time and we were quickly accommodated with a start. We rented clubs. The clubs were above average quality a good enough for the day. We played the 18 holes pretty much alone. The course is in good shape and I a great... More

Me and my buddies went golfing at Bobby Jones and had the absolute worst golfing experience ever. After they told us we could golf in our group the bobby jones staff members decided while we in the middle of our golf game that our group was too big. We would have happily separated our group into two groups to accommodate... More
