Greens are great & tee areas improved

Tatum Ridge isxavfun golf course at an affordable price especially when using golfnow hot deals. The course has made some course condition improvements . Green are perfect but the chipping areas are bare on many holes. The fairways tend to be a hit ir miss affair. The grass in the fairways are not consistent, often bare or spotty marginal lies. But I like the staff and the friendly family atmosphere.

Course needs TLC

All chipping & pitching areas around the greens consist of dead grass or just plane dirt. Come on man! Fairways are barely any better with barely a thin, wispy cover of grass. If we wait til winter overseed, the prices & pace of play are not particularly attractive. Some local courses do manage great turf conditions year round and others don't. Those courses do charge more so I assume there is an understandable balance between course conditions & revenue. I can say the greens were in good shape and rolled true. I like Tatum Ridge but conditions were disappointing for golfers who play the ball where it lays.

Great Summer Conditions

Really well kept course for the peak of summer. It hadn't rained much for the past few days, but the course was still impressively dry in a good way. Greens were superb albeit a bit slow and bunkers were also excellent and consistent. Tee boxes were pretty barren, but it didn't affect play. For Florida in August, I wish there had been drinking water on the course, so bring a big water bottle.

Nice, open and relatively easy layout without any houses around. Not the most memorable of courses, but there were a few great holes, namely the par 5s, with great risk-reward tee shots.

Not expensive, but nothing special.

Practically had the course to ourselves and the layout wasn't bad, but the course is not in very good condition. Lots of dry, worn out spots throughout what was supposed to be the fairway. Clubhouse, if you call it that was among the worst I've seen. The gentleman behind the counter was very pleasant and the cart was nice.

Liked the course

The course and staff was very nice and pleasant. A little disappointed that there was not a 9-hole play option. Paid for full 18 but me and my partner could only make it to 9 due to the extreme heat that day. Other than that, I would recommend this course.

Love it

Always heard Tatum Ridge was a lot of fun, and it totally was! Awesome easy layout, staff was the nicest I’ve ever experienced considering lots of courses the staff can be pricks. The fringes around the greens were about ready to be replaced, but the greens were BEAUTIFUL! I would love to play in season when everything is done being patched up and good to go for season. Thanks Tatum ridge! Will definitely be back, myself and my buddies had the BEST time in a while golfing out there. Can’t wait to play again

Another great round at TR

Gotta love the summer fun of heavy rain flooding the range but also allowing for all those course improvement projects while the sun and skies cooperate. Tee boxes are coming back and the greens looked brilliant. Now we just need the range to drain and sod to arrive.

Best bang for your buck in Sarasota

Great layout, great price, condition is off-season but plenty of good fairway and greens to hit from / land on. Pace of play is usually on the slower end but this day it was perfect 738am tee time. Overall Tatum Ridge is the best course for my $
