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.

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.
