Our Courses

Harbourside’s three nines make up three distinctive 18 hole options. Many of the holes are located alongside Sarasota Bay and our own Longboat Key Club Moorings. All three nines have their own distinct characteristics. The White Egret nine measures 3,342 yards. It has the least amount of water of the three nines, but don’t let that throw you off — the challenge lies in its tight fairways. The Red Hawk nine measures 3,314 yards and recently underwent a redesign by architect Ron Garl. The Red Hawk is more open and forgiving than the White Egret, with water that plays into many shots. Our legendary Blue Heron is the final nine at Harbourside and measures 3,368 years. Longboat Key Club’s signature nine was redesigned in 2005 and borders Sarasota Bay. With beautiful views in every direction and a challenge for every aspect of your game, this course has something for every player.

Once known as the Islandside Course, Links on Longboat was redesigned by Ron Garl in 2014 to great acclaim. Expansive natural areas and wide greens meet soft Gulf breezes for a restorative golfing experience. Links on Longboat measures 6,748 yards from end to end with five sets of tees to accommodate any level of play. The course’s Par 71 layout demands accuracy off the tee. Many of our holes feature small waterways that flow along one side of the fairway to prompt you into a placement decision. Once you have driven your ball in a good fairway position, the fun really starts. Our innovative new Ron Garl design challenges your iron play but does not punish you for an errant shot. Fewer bunkers and more grassed collection areas allow for an easy pitch to the hole even if you’ve missed the green. Each green has been completely reshaped to Ron’s creative vision and all 18 holes have been re-grassed with premier salt tolerant Platinum Paspalum grass. Links on Longboat is lined with 5,000 Palm trees and pink and white Oleanders and accented by rich natural Florida wildlife and greenery.
