Spectacular

For a new course, this is everything you could want. Challenging course in outstanding condition. When the greens mature and are brought to competition speeds they will be a real challenge. For now they are very true and fun to putt. Staff is friendly and attentive. The pro shop is well stocked with a variety fashions. The beer is cold and plentiful.

Thanks for a great day.

Great new course, will play again

For a new course it has acceptable greens for holding shots. There is a lot of Undulation to the greens but roll true and fair. The conditions are perfect.

Always awesome

This is the best value and the finest conditions in a public course available in Lakewood Ranch, It's really that good. Wide Fairways mean more fun, greens are smooth as glass and very tough to read! I think it's nicer that Lakewood National and less money. This is a full service course, food, beverage cart, practice facility pro shop,

Good Course

This is a relative new course I think this is their 3rd year. It' s well kept Florida housing development course. Recently over seeded for winter but in excellent shape. Modern Yamaha carts with video rangefinder. There are limited food available. Sandwiches, snacks fluids. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Just a nice place on a Sunday afternoon

Azario

Wonderful golf course, great layout and we were treated great. The fairways were overdseeded and the course was soaked. Understood, to get the Rye to germinate but it did affect the experience. 2 weeks from now it will be great!!

Best in Lakewood Ranch area

I have golfed all over Florida and Arizona and this place is impressive! good job!!!! The greens were fast and smooth fairways were beautiful especially after just being overseeded, they're growing in very nicely. For GPS directions, pull it up on Google maps and look for the green icon that says"Azario Golf Course" touch on it and Google maps will take you there, if you don't you will be guided to a spot south of Lakewood National

Fantastic course and first round ever there!

The club facilities are basically brand new and modern. The golf course was in fantastic condition...including the multiple practice areas, tee boxes, fairways, greens, and overall facilities! The fairways are long and wide open but sand traps are deep and the greens are huge, crazy fast, and very steep. There was no wind the early in the morning I played, but the winds became very strong by 11 am making it much more challenging. I plan to definitely play there again a bunch of times!
