After playing at River Strand where we are staying, this course was a disappointment. I guess because you get a GPS in your cart (ours did not work), the course fairway is not well marked. Also, if this is your first time playing, there are holes where you are wondering where to go. Very few ball cleaners and trash at... More

Though challenging this course is picturesque with some spectacular holes. The course plays challenging and the greens fast. Great landscaping like many other courses and was surprised to find a deal under $50 for this great course. Definitely our group enjoyed this course.

We have played a lot of courses in and around the Tampa/Sarasota area and this really is one of the nicest we have played. The guys in the pro shop were really friendly and the course was in good condition. What made is so nice was that it wasn't one of those boring courses that look like they have been... More

Was able to play this for $49, great deal for such a nice course. Lot of water on most holes, and in many cases it is not far from the fairways or greens. The course is in very good conditions, facilities are great, and the grounds are beautiful. The water, canals, houses, and vegetation are all very pretty and create... More

Very nice course with beautiful and unique holes. The course winds around the Manatee river giving some of the holes wonderful vista. The course is well maintained and pace of play is very good. GPS system in carts was not very accurate and had to manually advance it in all of our carts.

This is a very difficult course for any player. Usually in good to very-good condition with plenty of places to "donate" your golf balls. (Don't come to the first tee with just one sleeve.) Par is a good score on just about any hole. Good luck!

We first went to Waterlefe when it first opened and always enjoyed the experience. However as it established itself it started to become more expensive and popular which go hand in hand! So we played elsewhere like Stoneybrook (close by) and The River Club. However we got a good value Tee Time off Paradise and played it again. It is... More

Lots of water so bring plenty of golf balls. The greens were absolutely true. Great for all handicappers because there are 5 different tee boxes. Played a round in 4 hours. Nice. Loved the challenge. I am a 14 handicap.

This is a beautiful location. Nice property. There is also a club to lunch or dine it. When I have been there -- it has not been very busy. There is a lake in front of the Clubhouse where golfers are hitting golf balls into the lake -- by passing swimming sea birds. Interesting. Enjoy and relax.

Waterlefe Golf and Marina Club is very stiff and unfriendly. The staff needs training to help them understand that the customer is why they are there..... the customer pays their salary..... the staff there act as though they are doing you a favor to even turn in your direction? I do not recommend this establishment to anyone! The golf course... More
