TPC Prestancia (Stadium) - Solid Sarasota Track but Not TPC Worthy

The Good: The Tournament Player’s Club at Prestancia is a very nice 36-hole private complex that was originally built in 1985 as one of the first in the TPC Network. The Ron Garl & Mike Souchack designed Stadium course is a tale of two nines with a fairly open, wind-exposed front and a tighter, more strategic inward half. Particularly good conditions, especially the large, slick greens that also hold well. Very nice clubhouse and practice area accompanied by a friendly staff. Nice group of Par-3’s and a beautiful, short Par-4 18th with a near island green. Excellent 19th hole patio views and dining area!

The Bad: While the greens putt very true, some of the complexes are downright diabolical. There a few quirky holes that I particularly didn’t like, most notably the Par-4 8th with a very odd, blind landing area off the tee and the 11th hole in which I was completely blocked by an overhanging tree despite hitting the right side of the fairway. The $35 cart fee for guests felt a little excessive.

The Verdict: TPC Prestancia (Stadium) is another solid option in the pantheon of Sarasota area golf courses, but I wouldn’t consider it to the level of most TPC courses based on what I’ve played and seen on the professional tours. It’s a very nice course, but not necessarily anything PGA-Tour level special.

Best Hole: Really liked the 18th hole, a 300-yard Par-4 that calls for a long-iron or hybrid off the tee, but must be aggressive enough to not be blocked out by trees on the right guarding the approach to an island green.
