A warm staff greets you as you register. The starter is full of local information...and this course that cuts thru the wilderness becons. While there are several short par fours...some driveable...the penalty for missing can be severe. Undulating greens challenge the best putters...and the par threes are demanding. This is a fun course from all the tees...and will not break... More

We play this course at least once per week during the winter season. The course is always in excellent condition. Wide fairways invite you to let out the shaft on the tees, but the greens take it all back with subtle breaks that will challenge the best putters. During your round, you will see Alligators, Osprey, White Pelicans and other... More

Played late February while on vacation from Rhode Island and the course was is great shape. Best greens I've played on in the area. Plenty of room off the tee. Many of the greens are multi tiered, forcing you to hit the right part of the green to avoid a long, difficult putt. A must play!!

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.
