Shout Out To Starter

I arranged a twosome & my partner had to cancel last minute. Twosome we were paired with pushed back their tee time an hour. Left me as single with numerous foursomes ahead of me.
"Steve the Starter" said he would check hole #9 in effort to accommodate my situation. Steve returned shortly said you are good to go off #10.
Many Thanks to Steve for thinking out of the box and assisting me and my situation.

Steve

Good golf course

Course is one of the best in the area. Maintained in top shape. Only a few fairways were too wet to get any roll off the tee shot.....

Good day all around.....

Great

Given the recent rains and reduced play the course is at its finest. Greens were a slight challenge from recent aerification but rolled true.

One of the best courses in the area.

User friendly yet challenging with wide fairways and large greens. Plenty of temptations for risk reward shots and too, the greens are not flat.

Nice course

First time here and was paired with a father and son. Very nice guys and helped to make this round much more enjoyable. The course is in great shape tee to green. A little short, but still a lot of fun. It was hot and play could have been a little faster, but they were busy and that is understandable for a Friday afternoon. I would recommend this course to anyone in the area for golf, don't miss it, very nice.

Sweet

Nice wide fairways so you can just bang it and you will find it. Some blind tee shots which are hard to figure out your line but again generous fairways, green are true and medium fast. Pick the right tees and you will enjoy your round. Very challenging par 3’s but fair. Enjoy every time I play here.

Terrific and Consistent

From the practice area to the course and this is one magnificent and well cared for Golf Course. Wide fairways lots of sand challenging greens that are very consistent. This is one of the best values and consistent courses in the entire greater Sarasota Bradenton area.

Greens have been aerated

I would not have booked a reservation on Golf Now had I known the greens had been aerated recently. There was no warning on the Golf Now reservation website.
