We all were comparable in ability, friendly and we had a very enjoyable round. Saw 5-6 BIG gators around the various ponds. The course is very scenic and winds through... More

Lots of wildlife, great staff and enjoyable course. I had a few friends who were less experienced so we let a few ppl through. The course was well laid out and picturesque. Saw some gators, what more could u ask for.

Sarasota National is very forgiving off the tee but has great greens with a lot of undulations. The course is in terrific shape, I highly recommend it.

This golf course is a must for any avid golfer. The layout is challenging but several tee position tend to soften the toughness. All aspects of the course are well manicured such as the grass (both greens and fairways), sand traps and bunkers and outside the pro shop. Consider golf at Sarasota sooner rather than later as the residents will... More

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 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.
