“Fair condition, poor price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

This is a difficult *water on all 18 holes) course whose conditioning has improved somewhat in l;ast 2 years, but the price at $100 is way to high for the quality and condition particularly when compared to courses within a 30 minute drive in Sarasota and Bradenton.

“Nice course; needs a little work”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Nice venue but needs a little rehab. Cart paths need new blacktop and, in some cases are getting it.

“Great Location, decent Course”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Three nines. Two of the three are reasonably challengeing. Lots of water. Bring extra balls. Courses are maintained to an average rating. The restaurant is decent and recently remodeled with a new menu ... much improved.

“Challenging course”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

You can play Islandside by being a member or staying at the Longboat Key Resort. Picturesque and challenging with water on every hole...bring extra balls.

“Excellent golf course well managed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2012

The two golf courses on Long Boat Key are both excellent places to golf. We are fortunate to have an agreement with them that allows us to play in the summer time, off season. Polite staff, an organized started and a course that is a challenge. Long and narrow. Well maintained and play moves fast. I have not played there in high season so I can not comment on pace and style of play. Helpful staff. Keep your head down and follow through!
