Played Sarasota National for the first time on vacation and came away truly impressed with the course as well as all the staff we came into contact with, from the pro shop to the starters to the wait staff. Before the round, we took advantage of the practice green, pitching green, practice bunkers and driving range, (where balls are supplied).... More

This is a great golf course - very big wide open great fairways and challenging greens no complaints however when visiting the 19th hole for a drink and snack when it comes to asking if they have wi fi - yes they do but the server didn't know the password - when we got the bill we were told 18%...

Cannot say enough about the organisation of the course and all the... More

This is a fun course with forgiving fairways and difficult greens. There are several sets of tees that allow you to take on as much as you want. The back tees play 7344 yards and is painfully long, especially on the par threes. The course is in EXCELLENT condition (Aug 2016). The greens, although difficult, putt very true and are... More

Enjoyed the beautiful views, green fairways, clean well trimmed bunker, even though there is a lot of building going on the course was quiet to enjoy nature. Club house is huge and beautiful.

We golfed here a few times. Grounds and course are nice, but the some of the staff are rude and condescending. There are other courses in the area with nice grounds and friendlier personnel. Will give it another try in future to see if there are any improvements, but for now, will visit some of my other favorites.

Golf course was in excellent shape when we played. Greens and fairways are top notch. The course is challenging and forgiving at the same time. Pricing was reasonable as we booked through golfnow.

Play this now if you haven't done so, as it is likely to go private in the near future. There are more houses popping up around the course every week, as their sales program is now in full swing, but the course still gives the feeling of wide open spaces. Wide fairways beckon from most tees, but the difficulty factor... More

Sarasota National is one of the latest courses. It is in a WCI (I think) community and they always seem to have great courses. Sarasota National is an exceptional track. Very WIDE fairways. Smooth and true greens. Undulating greens, but rolled very smooth and true. Really enjoyed the round.

Still maturing. Back nine more interesting and challenging. Water hazards common, but no forced carries. Greens not very good and slow, but that is not uncommon in the area. Usually accessible. Reasonable price.
