IMG Academy Golf Club
Enjoyed course layout. Conditions were good ,although some greens were spotty. Good value. Will play again next year.

save your money...go elsewhere
greens were bumpy and rough....pitiful.... Majority were exposing brown bare spots. Snack shack closed at turn...on Sunday mid afternoon. Staff unfriendly. Bunkers were good. Would have been nice at check in if staff told us greens were bare...would have played elsewhere. Sad story at $58...so many other courses in better condition...for less $$$ in Sarasota to play than here .Pro shop closed when we finished or would have asked for money back.

IMG Academy Greens are in Bad Shape
Staff was surly and cold upon check-in and at Starter's box. Golf shop staff was very pleasant.
Greens were in bad shape. Bare spots, spotty areas with broadleaf grass growing on the greens (sorry I'm not an agronomist). Putts bumped up / down and side-to-side all day long. You just had to hit it and hope there wasn't some debris to deflect the ball severely offline. For the price, this was the worst value of the winter season I've experienced. Pro shop should have told players about the condition before they took your money, and if you still decided to play, should have offered at least at 25% discount, perhaps more.

There are SSSOOOOO many courses to play in this area that are less expensive and in much better condition!!!
Some of the greens were in such bad condition in that we automatically gave ourselves 2 Putts!!! With Greens like these I will not play this course again!!! The starter out front 7:40 AM in morning most definetley is not a people person!! I waited next to starter podium for 12 minutes while he walked past me 5 times without ever acknowledging me!! Finally another golfer asked him to wait on me next because he saw me waiting as he had pulled his car up!!! First time I have taken the time to complain about a course. Played Rosedale today and Greenfield Plantation Thursday Both Courses very nice conditions and staff very friendly!!! Ask for JT at Greenfield he is a very nice appreciative young man that goes out of his way to make you feel comfortable!!!

It was a very slow round Sat. with a lot of students having a competition in front of us
I like the layout, the greens are not good, it looks like they had too much some water problems.
The concrete cart path is too close to play areas on some holes creating bouncing that will take a ball out of bounds.

Course offers a challenging layout for all skill levels. Staff is friendly and pace of play was excellent, right at 4 hours. Enjoyable experience will play there again!

Left on hole 12 due to slow play
Paired up with 3 very nice people, conditions were nice, some bare spots on greens. Sand traps had a nice white sand and were raked nicely. Did not understand why we waited on just about every shot, left after 3 3/4 hours on 12th hole. Place has a lot of potential, great practice facilities, nice layout, etc. Halfway house was not open, and rangers were not friendly. Probably won't return.
