Rained out

Front nine was closed for maintenance. Only could play the back nine. Rained out after six holes. Greens under maintenance but free fees were discounted. Will come back in a few weeks.

Average overall experience

You get what you pay for in life. Decent for the price but no frills or thrills about this place. Cart path is real bumpy and many obstacles in brush along the way. Not crowded on off days which is nice

Bunkers

Course was pretty wet, but for the price it was ok. Bunkers need to be detailed and maintained, greens were ok for summer time greens in Fl. Tees were spotty. But fairways were in good shape considering all the rain lately.

Bent Tree

It was a hot sticky day and the course had received 1 1/2 inches of rain overnight. Some of the fairways probably should have been limited to cart path only but were not, so some midday tracks left by carts. Many of the sand traps were full of water and others had lots of weeds growing so grounds maintenance is needed. One huge oak was down and needs to be cut up and removed. Most tee areas and Greens were in decent shape. I like the layout and intend to play again but maintenance needs to be caught up.

Better then expected

Course was better than I remembered. Greens are a little slow, but not bad for all the rain we’ve had. Fairways need to be cut, but I believe this also has to do with everything being so wet. I enjoyed the course and will return.

Go to course

I really love this course and play it every time I vacation in Siesta Key. Great price for an excellent course, and the fairways, greens, and rough are kept in great shape. The bunkers need a little TLC, but it is the rainy season.
Yes there are other courses around, but the staff and homelike feel make you feel genuinely back home playing your home course. I recommend you check it out and make it one of your favorite golf getaway courses you venture to when you are in the area.
