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

Such a beautiful golf course. Always in perfect condition. Friendly staff except for John. He was so rude to us when it was time for us to tee-up. This man has personal issues and should not be working around people, especially customers.

I played this course twice on this visit. Once on a calm day once on a breezy day. For me a great variety of holes, challenging enough, nice scenery (no housing development yet). Friendly service!

We played on 10/12 , WCI the new owners, have done an awesome job improving the conditions. We have played the course since it opened and it is getting back into top notch condition. Wow, what a difference since they closed for a month of maintenance , new sand in bunkers, fairways improved and acres of brush removed and the... More

The course is very well taken care off. Nice fairways and very well maintained greens. Long travels between holes in an open environment (no houses built yet) The clubhouse is nice but no possibility to have a friendly drink after the round.
