The course is excellent and the greens are"interesting" - 3 putting was easily done !!! The only downside is that there is only a Pro shop and no clubhouse. If you get the chance to play it I'm sure you will enjoy it.

I played this course on Friday, May16th & it was in great shape....at least in the places I hit it :-) The club house staff & the starter were very nice & friendly. Not much to eat at course & the cart girl was nice whenever we saw her which was about three times for the round. The greens were... More

This is the worst experience I've ever had at a gold course. The course is a barren wasteland in the middle of an undeveloped golf community. The staff was rude to my friend and I, and the amenities was next to nothing. I understand not allowing coolers on the course, that's fine. But the first time we saw the beverage... More

This course is set in a wide open area with building lots and future roads separating the holes, but few houses to date. The layout and course conditions are above average for a daily fee course in this area. A spacious practice area and small pro-shop complete the set up. Overall, it's better than most.

We love Sarasota National. We have played it for several year. We are now excited that they are beginning to build homes on the course. It's just a fun course to play.

A great course that is very challenging. Lots of natural grasses and flora and fauna. The pro shop is well staffed and equipped. There is no restaurant on site but there are lots of choices in eating places within 5 minutes.

Had a flyer from Sarasota which showed a $37 price for after 3 pm play....picked it up from the clubhouse in early January.... when I arrived the price was $53..beware prices here are set daily based on market demand...kind of like lobster at a restaurant but they do not tell you that in advance...

Well maintained with a friendly staff. Although in a housing development, there are almost no houses completed and none interfere with the course. It is wide open and often windy. Free range balls, and practice putting and chipping greens.

This course has always been in outstanding condition but this year it has exceeded itself. In preparing to build homes around the course, the developers have cleaned up and mulched around all of the numerous ponds, and cart paths. The feeling is of a private course, even though it is public. The hole layouts offer a wide variety of interesting... More

Love the course great design ! I am not a slow golfer by any means but John the starter was very rude and was rushing my group. Every other hole he made a comment about pace. This is no way to run a golf course or any self respecting customer service business. He should be fired!! The rest of the... More
