Horrible conditions. Free beer doesn't make up for it.

I play at Serenoa regularly. It is usually in good shape, and can be challenging from whites and esp. blues. It is a fun course. There's water in play on most holes. The staff is friendly, the pace of play is good, and they have some great golf+food combos. Clubhouse and practice facilities are average.

There are some legitimate, but relatively minor criticisms: there are often a few mushy spots even if there's been no rain--they over-water, or lack proper drainage in places. The sand traps could use more sand. The greens have always been fine when I played, though I've heard some negative comments around punching and over-seeding times. It's just good sense at any course to ask about playing conditions when you book a tee time.

I'm very satisfied with this course, and will continue to play regularly.

The greens are in terrible condition, bumpy and very slow. I won't play here again.

Course conditions were abysmal. Worse I have seen in Sarasota in years. Greens are 90% dead. Traps have no sand. The weeds around the traps were 2-3 feet high. Weeds all over the fairways. They overbook all the time and don't stagger tee times, so plan on a 5+ hour round, even in off season.

The bathroom facilities were disgusting. I've seen cleaner bathrooms in New York City subways. No beverage cart and only one cooler of water on the course, with warm water.

I paid $21 today but that was about $15 too much. Absolutely, positively the worse public golf course in Sarasota by a long shot.
