Charlotte Harbor National Golf Club
Charlotte Harbor National Golf Club (formerly known as Bobcat Trail Golf Club), also known simply as "the Cat," has been considered one of Sarasota County's best courses since it opened in 1998. Each hole on this lengthy par-71 layout offers a risk-reward opportunity. This thought-provoking course requires careful course management, proper club selection, and sharp short game skills. The large greens are fast and undulating and bunkers are strategically placed throughout. There are also several water hazards that come into play. Not only does each hole offer a unique challenge, they all offer beautiful scenery with a different eye-catching feature on each. Golfers will be sure to encounter some of the abundant wildlife that inhabits the golf course including foxes, gators, hawks and osprey. The club's staff claims that any of the 18 holes could be considered a signature hole.

A little dry.
I was told that the irrigation system was being repaired which is good because the course was sry as a bone. Once irrigated back to soft, lush fairways.....five stars for all. The staff was five star and very friendly.
Course Condition Disappointing
Always loved the layout. Course conditions have deteriorated to a disappointing condition. Winter rates make this especially difficult to justify playing there.
Hope things turn around. We need great courses!
Poorfairways and greens
This course is over priced based on condition. I would not and will not play it again. Several years ago it was in great shape, they have let it go. Fairways were dirt in many places. Very bad.
Seemed like a lot of the grounds were being treated. Fertilizer spread on greens, fairways brown and hard, all the water supply ponds very low
Have played this course a few times. They were getting the course in the right direction and now not so much. If you want to take it to the next level it takes work and money.
I would never recommend this place to anyone. They blamed Golfnow for my tee off time had me start at the 6th hold and when I got to 10 they had a big tournament of ladies threesome starting at both the first and 10 pace was brutal! I
Left after the 10 hold as the ladies where taking over 20 minutes to
Play one hold.
It’s a nice layout on a dirt track. It’s an embarrassment really to some of the nice people who work there. The man who took my green fee did so as if he was doing me a favor. I later saw him in the lounge where he was even ruder and declined to help me with a request because he was too busy drinking cocktails. He is also an embarrassment. The women at the restaurant were nice. Go play nearby river wood and forget about this place.
Greens Very Good. Sand traps good Rest of the course TERRIBLE I realize that the grass goes dormant, but much of it looked it hadn’t seen water since November
Really not worth want you have to pay!!!
Good layout, but...
The course is in really rough shape. Fairways hard as can be, and the greens are really beat up. That said. It’s a good layout, just needs maintenance.
Happy New Year
First of all the clubhouse could not find our Golf Now Reservation, and I unfortunately did not bring my confirmation e-mail. But they let us play at the scheduled tee time at the Golf Now rate.
I have played this course before, always liked the challenging layout. However, the pace of play was slow, we finished in over 4 1/2 hours, The fairways were bare of grass in places, and some of the greens were bumpy.
Overall a mediocre round of golf
