Golf in Sarasota Area

Beachfront Siesta Key

There are approximately 90 golf courses in and around the Sarasota area.  About a third of them do not require a membership to play.  Semi-private courses allow non-members to book tee times.  However, they provide members with discounted rates and most allow members to book tee times farther in advance than non-members.  If you have a membership at a country club in your home town, you might check to see if it has a reciprocal arrangement with any of the private country clubs in the Sarasota area.

I don’t have enough firsthand experience to offer any meaningful comments.  However, the Golflink website shown below provides a star grading of the various courses.

One thing you’ll notice right away when you golf in Florida is that water and sand comes into play more often than on most courses in northern states.  While this adds to the challenge, it also enhances the beauty of the courses.  As you will see when you review the courses listed below, many were designed by top pros and are beautiful as well as challenging.

The status of golf courses can change from time to time.  Below is a listing of public and semi-private courses that is current as of the summer of 2017.  If you click on the golf course name it will take you directly to the website for the course.  In most cases, you can reserve tee times on line and check to insure the status of the course has not changed.  In many cases, you can also view score cards and in some cases, hole-by-hole layouts.
