First time I have played this course. I was looking forward to it. I had heard nice things about it. Lots of water everyone told me. It is in a gated community. You pass thru a guard gate and drive to the course. Arriving at the course, everyone one was very nice here from the guy who takes your clubs... More

I played there yesterday and found the course in excellent condition. I enjoyed the layout of the course as well. Lots of water! But that's true of many courses in this area.

We played here since it first opened c2004 and it looked to have tremendous potential as it matured. We have gone back year after year and always enjoyed the experience and now that it has matured it's got better. You really can tell the difference between a very well maintained course and those that aren't and Waterlefe is right up... More

We've played this course before because it is such a beautiful course. Everybody there is very friendly and the course is now in excellent condition. The greens are a tad slow but roll nicely and true. Fairways are like carpet. The last 5 holes are outstanding finishing holes. We tend to prefer somewhat upscale golf courses and this one fills...

Pro shop staff were friendly, round was good value ($30), course was in great condition despite heavy rainfall the previous day. Gators, snakes and bird life are frequent at the waters edge so watch where you step!

Easy to find. You can tell it's going to be good as soon as you drive thro the gate. Beautiful course in great condition. Superb 10th. But lots of water - not for the faint of heart, and you will need extra balls your first time out. The expanded River Club is quite special.

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
