Join us on our world-class Longboat Key golf courses
Regularly ranked among the country’s top golf courses, The Resort at Longboat Key Club has earned Golf Digest’s prestigious “Best Places to Play” award and remains one of the most revered golf resorts on the Gulf of Coast. Sharpen your skills on 45 challenging holes including our tree-lined Harbourside Golf Course beside Sarasota Bay and the Links of Longboat Course bordering the shimmering Gulf of Mexico.
Harbourside Golf Course
White #9, Par 4 – 437 yards
This challenging hole demands players be long off the tee and requires avoiding two lengthy fairway bunkers along the left side. That said, the tee shot must favor the left side to keep from being partially blocked by trees to the right. The second shot of 175 to 190 yards must cross a small lake in front of a two-tiered green. A defining hole of the White Egret, this one will challenge your skills and serve up rewarding views of lush greenery in the process.
Blue #5, Par 5 – 580 yards
This hole is so distinctive that we just might designated it the signature hole of Harbourside Golf Course. Located on the Blue Heron nine, this horseshoe-shaped hole with its peninsula green features water the entire length – and that water must be crossed twice. This striking hole combines length, water, sand, and of course, natural beauty. To succeed at this hole, players will need to hit three quality shots in a row – a fine challenge.
Links On Longboat Golf Course
Hole #7, Par 4 – 420 yards
This challenging hole demands your drive be long and straight to avoid the water on the right and out-of-bounds to the let. There is also a fairway bunker on the right prompting a pushed/sliced drive. The second shot is from 175 to 200 yards to an elevated green that is bunkered on both sides. The green slopes back to front, so position on the correct section of the putting surface is key.
Hole #11, Par 5 – 500 yards
This par 5 hole is a true risk/reward experience, challenging players from the tee box all the way to the green. The hole is surrounded by water on both sides for its entire length and must be crossed in front of the green. The right side also includes a fairway bunker and on the left, a greenside bunker. The player may choose to go for the green in two, but the penalty is severe if the second shot is miss-hit. Most players choose to lay-up short – the choice is yours!
