The Longboat Key Club features two spectacular courses that challenge even the most advanced golfer. Known as the “watery challenge,” the 6,792 yard Islandside course borders the Gulf of Mexico with water hazards coming into play on all 18 holes. Accuracy off the tee is essential, and the greens roll quickly and true. More than 5,000 palm trees and pink and white blooming oleander line the fairways and canals, making Islandside one of Florida’s most beautiful courses. Additionally, Longboat Key Club’s location in a bird sanctuary brings an abundance of colorful “birdies” to the course.
The Harbourside course presents a completely different golf experience from the Islandside course. This challenging 27-hole layout is composed of 3 nine-hole courses designed by Willard Byrd: the Red Hawk, the White Egret, and the Blue Heron Bordering Sarasota Bay, the course plays through stands of oak, sabal palm, fig, palmetto, fiddleleaf palm, Washingtonian palm, and southern pine. Tree lined fairways and swirling winds put a premium on shot-making and course strategy. The prevailing breezes from the Gulf of Mexico and Sarasota Bay keep Harbourside a refreshing challenge year round!
One can join the Longboat Key Club from anywhere, but what many consider to be the most prime location is “behind the gates” of the Club, which is located on the southern tip of the Island with easy access to the Islandside course. Located here are many high-rise gulf front condos as well as some of the most exclusive and expensive single family residences in Sarasota County. Other great locations to Longboat Key Club include Bay Isles as well as Country Club Shores. Have a look below at the latest available listings “behind the gates.”
