Just played the newly renovated nine at Harbourside. It just opened less than two weeks ago. The routing is the same but everything else is totally upgraded and changed. It looks like the other two nines now but the playability is off the charts. It was very friendly to my tee shots. I found it very fun and challenging in... More

Thanks to the insight of Ocean Properties Owners and the Management efforts of Jeff Mayers , Terry O'Hara and others , they immediately recognized when they bought the LBK Resort that both the Islandside and Harborside courses needed extreme retrofit in order to become first class golf courses befitting a first class resort. They spent millions re-doing the 27 holes... More

This is one of my favorite courses out there, so long as the Blue 9 is part of your round. This course wouldn't get old after 1000 rounds - great views, challenging creative holes that can be played multiple ways, and some of the best golf holes out there in Blue. The course is in fantastic shape since it was... More

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

The hotel did compensate us when we complained, however, for the first time in nearly 20 years we were disappointed that the Harbourside Golf, as the only one open until October, was in such poor condition.

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.
