Our group played both Islandside and Harborside courses. We were impressed with the course conditions and the greens were awesome. They rolled fast and true. As long as you started your putt on the right line, it never wavered. Would definitely play here again and...More

Overrated - Location is superb if you are local, that’s why I gave it 1 star. Slow round with subpar service. Not worth the money. Play ANY other course nearby for a great value, service and better courses.

Islandside acts as a great foil to Harbourside with expansive views and some of the best birdwatching you'll find on any golf course. The course was in terrific shape and is challenging with shoreline winds and water everywhere. Its close proximity to the beach leads...More

Fun and very well maintained resort course. Classic old school Florida course that is extremely playable for all levels of golfers. Vast array of seaside birds around the waterways. I saw an eagle, ospreys, rosette spoon bills, and skimmers to name a few. Really close...More

Now referred to as The Links on Longboat, the course is very playable and in excellent condition. A good test of golf for all levels of golfers. Friendly and helpful staff.

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.

Both Island Side and Harborside (all 45 holes) are manicured and challenging. We played more than 10 rounds this year and had a great experience each day. The grounds surrounding all property is extremely well kept, without any intrusion from sounds of mowers, weed cutters...More

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