We have seen the sign for the $2.99 breakfast for a long time so my wife and I stopped before shopping (UGH!) The eatery is casual and clean for a golf club. Service was prompt and the food was worth more than $2.99. I mean it was pretty good for the price. Eat at Denny's or other sit-down and be... More

Great track. It feels a little neglected which is a real shame. Some very challenging holes but worth the money. We enjoyed it

Great place to get 18 holes in. If all you do is par the signature 16th hole, you're doing good. This is my go to course in Sarasota/ Bradenton.

Served by most helpful staff in the pro shop and made very welcome. Early summer morning the course was busy but moving the etiquette of golf being followed. Would highly recommend this course based on its value for money and the challenges of alligator occupied ponds! Downside, antiquated system of providing drinking water on the course, nevertheless worth playing.

If you're in the Sarasota area, look no further than The River Club for a wonderful course. Beautifully maintained, great service, friendly, and all the challenge most players can handle. If anyone has a complaint with this place for $26 they haven't played a whole lot of golf courses.

I read a lot of reviews on this place, so I came in with reservations to say the least. Mostly in regards to staff. My experience was good. Check in was smooth and a gentlemen met us half way to the clubhouse to pick us up and grab our bags. Gave us some direction as well. Counter staff were fine... More

Although the greens and fairways were maintained the roughs had not been touched in a long time. A culture of bad manners and a sense of entitlement on the part of members left us stunned. The Marshall made no effort to maintain order. One walker held up the entire course playing multiple balls while twosomes frog leaped around us saying... More

Fun course from the blues...a little over 6400 yards. Would highly recommend the course. Staff was freindly. Only suggestion is a little better mapping bewteen holes. Almost got lost a couple of times. Absoluting on the play again list. Great price,$25.
