Easy course, very little rough handicap 12. As is always the case in America we were behind a lot of slow players, however we managed to get through 4 lots who were all gentlemanly and waved us through !! Nice people at club house.

Beautiful location. Helpful staff. Challenging course with superb views. Great attention to detail. Gps in carts, easy to navigate course. Iced drinks on board and you get plenty of balls and tees. The rental clubs were great quality and you can hit the driving range before you start.

Newly renovated Harborside course was in perfect condition. Greens are a challenge so don't get above the hole or your putt may wind up off off the green. There is a par five on the Blue nine that is a severe dogleg right and scary enough to make your knees quake! Beautiful views of pristine Sarasota Bay and the Sarasota... More

3 different nine hole courses, red, white and blue. Blue is the most challenging, following by white and the easy red course. Typical Florida golfing here, lots of sand water and hazards. This is a position course and not for long drivers. The course is well maintained

We had a company tournament. The course was in perfect condition. Carts and rental clubs were ready for us. Service was excellent. The beverage cart was always nearby! Finished the round in 3 1/2 hours. A perfect day.

The driving range is great and free with your room stay. Small pond has jumping fish in it, very cool.

Went to this course in an ongoing effort to get a rise out of my putter After seeing the sights of 80 year old women my flaccid putter became inert. After a quick diversion to cheetahs. I was able to not only perform on the course but also on the beach as I chased around those gggilfs

Each of the three courses is a little different that makes for an enhanced experience. Staff at all courses experienced.
