Nice course, the last 3 holes feel out of place. Overall nice course.

Excellent course, it has some very challenging holes. The greens were very nice. It is a top notch course. The US Open qualifier was held there this year, that says it all. We love this track. It is 5 STAR but for some reason it won't come out that way on rating scale.

The golf course was very nice. We waited on every single hole on the course. The rangers clearly have no clue what their role is or they do not care about pace of play. It was ridiculous! Also, do not get paired with the Mosely's.

Great course for a reasonable price. Played the much higher rated World Woods the day before - sorry I wasted my time. Should have just played Waterlefe twice! Fun course - but the mid - high handicapper will loose a few balls. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Some holes tricked out. Water on 20 out of 18 holes.

as the starter said, it should be called water grief. too dificult for the high handicapper like myself (25). basically target golf.

The best courses I played on my visit to Bradenton. The staff were really friendly and helful.There are some really fantastic holes, the 9th and the 15th stand out but there is not a bad hole. If you do not lose a ball from the 14th onwards you must be playing well. If you get a chance do not miss playing this course

It's a very challenging course for a high handicap player, there is water everywhere, plan on loosing golf balls. The greens are good and very true. This is the very first course I've played in Florida, I hope to be back.

This is a gorgeous course, scenery is great and the staff and amenities are top notch. A little pricey for the average guy. Very challenging for the mid-handi cap golfers with lots of water and foliage.

Very challenging course. Scenic along the Manatee river. Not for the high handicap golfer without expecting to lose a lot of balls. Greens are good and very true. A little pricey, but can get discount tee time on ezlinks web site. Nice clubhouse.
