The Gillespie Executive Par 3 is an enjoyable course.

We have played this course many times over the years and while it seems to be getting a little tired, it is inexpensive and a nice walk. It is a par 3 course and will let you... read more

We were very disappointed. Began with being charged $20 a golfer for cart, although one in our foursome had a card for 10 free rounds of golf. Although greens are in very good condition, the fairways are terrible. Tee boxes vary from okay to really bad. We could have played a much nicer course with cart included for the same... More

Currently in the midst of a golfing holiday with my husband and played various courses this week. Decided to play Bobby Jones and very pleasantly surprised. We played the British golf of eighteen holes. The holes were much longer - and apart from the fact the course was soooooo busy (great for the course!) but it just took soo long... More

I've played this course many times - both the American and British courses as well as the executive par 3 course. There are many options for golf in Sarasota but I've been coming back to Bobby Jones for years because they are reasonable golf courses at a great value...basically working out to a buck a hole last time I played...

We have played this course many times over the years and while it seems to be getting a little tired, it is inexpensive and a nice walk. It is a par 3 course and will let you test your skills with your short game. We have met some very friendly staff and the folks on the course are helpful about... More

Played on a Monday. Tee times booked into the afternoon. Played the "British" course. The fairways were pretty beat up with quite a few bare spots. The green were in much better shape with no complaints. Had a good time and got a good burger so no complaints here.

I'm vacationing and visiting friends in Sarasota and had the opportunity to join a golfing group that plays the Bobby Jones courses very Tuesday and Thursday. In recent years I've played a number of courses in Myrtle Beach and Orlando and, given that experience, find Bobby Jones a very decent option for vacationing golfers. There are 2 18 hole courses...

I grew up in Sarasota and played Bobby Jones as a youngster in Middle School and Junior Golf. I must admit the greens are the best I've ever seen them. If you haven't been here in a while, give it another try.

Played the American course and liked it despite the bumpy greens. Almost missed our tee-off time because there was only one starter at the kiosk when we arrived so we went there - he took our cashier slip and signed us up on the British course. Partly our fault because we did not at first see the signs above the... More
