The Islandside and Harbourside golf courses at the Resort at the Longboat Key Club have just recently been renovated. Challenging, yet forgiving for beginners, you will love the views of the Bay along the bayside holes and peeks of the Gulf on islandside.

Islandside has been completely renovated and is now an outstanding golf course. New greens are amazing. Like putting on a pool table.

Food was very good, & the service was great. The view was wonderful because it overlooked the golf course.

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

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.

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.
