Sold for a new housing project

Short 27 hole golf course was a great place to sharpen your game when arriving in FL.. Sorry to see this open space being sold for new home development.

Ok, I'm not a pro golfer. I'm lucky to leave with any golf balls left in my bag. But, this executive course was a lot of fun and a great value. I didn't feel intimidated by the other golfers like I often do at the fancier courses. It was well kept, and the greens were solid and true. Very friendly... More

Had a great time on this small par 3 course. It's a shame they are closing it to build condos. But if you can get there it is worth the trip.

If your looking for a country club with fine trimmed fairways and fast greens then this is not it. However, if your looking to enjoy a round of golf at a par three course with a couple par 4's and a par 5 thrown in this is a good bet. Great for seniors and juniors. Fun to play, friendly staff...

This is a low key short Executive Course tucked into a neighborhood area of Sarasota. There is an 18 hole 2600 yard par 58 course that is a great way to work on your short game and a 9 hole course with somewhat shorter holes. You can rent a cart or walk, and it was not crowded the day we... More

I've played here often and find it just challenging enough. Not pretty but fun and good value. More interesting than the other lower fee courses. I keep going back.

On vacation and stopped here to practice our short game. Rough was very thick and fairways not much better. Some of the slowest greens I have ever played. Overall not in the best shape but not a bad place to work on your short game. Just don't miss the green.

This 27 hole course has an interesting ( w/water and sand hazards) 18 hole course with #6 and #12 offering real challenges. Course is well maintained and is great value - hope it doesn't go to condos soon!!
