Lots of wildlife, great staff and enjoyable course. I had a few friends who were less experienced so we let a few ppl through. The course was well laid out and picturesque. Saw some gators, what more could u ask for.

Sarasota National is very forgiving off the tee but has great greens with a lot of undulations. The course is in terrific shape, I highly recommend it.
