This is a very beautiful golf course, fairly wide fairways but lots of trouble around in the form of sand traps and water. It is very enjoyable to play with a lot of natural vegetation surrounding each hole. There are many new homes being built around the course now which is nice to see.

Beautiful course, but advoid weekends very very busy. Starter sets you off exactly on time so dont be late. Wildlife on this course is amazing. Cant wait to play it again.

This is an excellent course. Lots of room between the holes and challenging course with sand, water and tricky entries to holes.

The golf course here is 4/5 but the rest is not. In a partially started development (and stopped several years ago.) the setting leaves much to be desired. Staff is ok. And it's NOT in Sarasota, it's in Venice, at least a 30 minute drive from Downtown Sarasota. Not a value unless you get a discount on Teeoff.com or golfnow.com.

A very averagely maintained course in the middle of nowhere. Don't be fooled by the photos on their website. Rude shop manager (I see he's been negatively commented on several times) who seemed to think he was doing me a favour by taking my hard-earned. Carts with no ice boxes or towels. Miles from anywhere you might expect to be... More

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.
