We played here last week expecting it to be at least in average condition based on the previous review; however, it was in very poor condition. We understand from the people we played with that it is coming back after being neglected for several years,...More

The last time I golfed here, the greens were in bad shape and fairways were patchy. I was pleasantly surprised this time at the excellent condition of both greens & fairways.

Regular part of vacations to Sarasota area; good courses (British and American) Inexpensive public course; kind of crappy hole in the wall restaurant - but we hear they are getting a new restaurantaur in place so hopefully will be better food/drinks.

Use to be a great set of golf courses. Seems like the mowers have missed a few days. Really a shame. I'm still not going to write this one off, it has the chance to be one of the greats again.

City owned facility. 2-18 hole courses. Very old, greens have been in not so good shape for the last 3 years. (although they are working on them) For value of your money, better courses to play in the area. Restaurant is very good and reasonable.

This was the perfect time for my first time golfing. The par 3 course is not extremely difficult and provides a variety of situation to learn on. The instructors there were also very helpful and within a day I got significantly better. The course was...More

Great layout and could be a truly terrific golf course. Don’t know if they are financially in trouble, or just have poor management. Fairways have lots of bare spots and the roughs are atrocious. Green are not to bad and traps are inconsistent. Played this...More
