About The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota

Overlooking Sarasota Bay, this upscale resort is in the center of the action in Southwest Florida. Guests here can explore Downtown Sarasota right outside the hotel's front door, while beachgoers can venture just a few miles west to take advantage of The Beach Club on Lido Key. Golfers may head in the other direction to tee it up at the Tom Fazio-designed Ritz-Carlton Members Club. These and other amenities make this one of the Sunshine State's top resort destinations.

Solid upscale Fazio

The Ritz-Carlton brand confers a certain expectation on a place: that of high-end, perhaps somewhat corporate-style prestige. The golf facility associated with its Sarasota outpost fits perfectly within that brand.

An impressive clubhouse and characteristically gracious service gives way to a golf course built to make the player feel important: heavily secluded holes, broad sweeping features and a general "premium" feel. Impeccable conditioning is also part of the equation, as is a hefty price tag for non-members ($240).

One of the best.

Grounds are beautiful and course is in great shape. Practice area is great as well. Try the chili after the round even in warm weather it will make you happy.

Great course. Overpriced

Played this course today with my father and his friend. The conditions were fantastic. Greens were running 11 or 12. The pace was perfect. We played in 3.5 hours. We saw the beverage cart 1 time early during the first nine and then she was nowhere to be found. Never saw her the rest of the round. When I complained to the proshop, they could care less. $155 per player was very steep for this course when there are so many in the area just as nice for much less. We had a nice time on a great course with good pace, but I won't pay $155 per player again. Worth it to play once.

Bradenton's Finest!

The Ritz-Members Club is one of the finest tracks I have ever played. Course conditions were absolutely perfect. Layout is great for golfers of all skill levels. Don't bite off more than you can chew though.. make sure you choose the right tees for your game. Good luck in the "Lion's Den" on 16, 17, 18! Get that T-Shirt!

Exceptional golf experience

Fast pace of play, wide fairways on a terrific Tom Fazio design -- doesn't get much better than this. Ritz-Carlton Sarasota guests are privy to an exclusive club experience, where tee sheets are open after early morning and you can fly around in 3 hours if you wish. Plus, there's one interesting hole after another, ending with the Lions Den. Make par or better to finish out and you win a free shirt from the golf shop. Good luck. Nice touch with your name on the locker.
