Owner description: Rolling Green is the friendliest course in all of Southwest Florida. The staff is welcoming and happy to help you enjoy your day at this 18-hole, par 72 championship layout. The course is friendly to all playing abilities with smooth greens & well manicured Bermudagrass fairways. Rolling Green doesn't beat your game up - it builds it up! And the full practice range and putting/chipping greens are just what's needed if you want to tune up your game even more. Convenient to everything in Sarasota or Manatee counties - Rolling Green gets great reviews from regular players for the Loyalty Club, Players Club & for being the Home of All Inclusive Golf.

“Have played here for years but...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

For nearly ten years this has been our "go to" course for affordable golf, year-round. It's staff members like Sam in the pro-shop who have kept us coming back. Because we're a group of 6 still-working professionals we tend to play on weekends, and it's typically been easy to get a tee time or "walk on". We enjoy the course which is not too challenging for beginning players but is also enjoyed by our more skilled friends. However, on our last two rounds we felt harrassed by the starter/player assistant, Don. While not rude, he is overly zealous and we have felt hassled on the last two visits - to the point where two of our players left without finishing their rounds. This has left all of us looking for another local course. Other than the one unpleasant staff member, we would recommend Rolling Green (and in fact, have done so for years).

“Best Value in Sarasota”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

I have played most every course in Sarasota, including most of the private courses. For the general public, RG offers the best bang for the buck. Since the Palmer Group has taken over management of RG the improvements are too numerous to list, but I will mention a few. The course is in as good condition as ever. The greens are true, and getting slicker. A couple of years ago I couldn't have said this. But now, I completely enjoy every visit. There are a couple of other courses that give something back to the player, but they got the idea from RG. Their loyality program offers a real return. The player improvement program is a great feature. If you are here for a short time neither of these will make a difference, but where else can you add breakfas and lunch for $6 bucks and a couple of beers to a round and not break the bank. I consider RG to be my home course and I am proud of it.

“Flat Course Good for Beginners”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012

This course has been around for years. It is reasonably priced but may not suit Nice clubhouse offers limited menu. Open to public. I played there for years in the early 1970's and found it great for 9 holes after work.

“You'll do better everywhere else”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2012

What's so special about Rolling Green? NOTHING !!! They get higher prices in the winter but they give you below what you should expect in the summer. Very poor greens, fairways that need mowing and management just doesn't care about you.

“Good Value, Quiet Area”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2009

They were over-seeding the greens when we went so we got a pretty good rate. Even though it was windy/rainy the day we went, we got a few good hits on the course. It's a pretty well-rounded par 3 course, not too much water. The scenery is okay, some holes are kind of close to the Rolling Green housing area, so there were some areas that weren't too aesthetically pleasing (like the wheelbarrow full of cement and dug-up backyard of one of the residents). Other than that, it's set away from the main roads so it's pretty quiet and peaceful.
