It was designed by the golf icon Gary Player and measures 6,875 yards from the black tee box and 4,673 yards from the white. The older West Course was redesigned in 2005 by another golf luminary, Rees Jones, who gained fame as the “US Open Doctor.” The yardage from the black tee box for this layout is 6,934 yards and 4,647 yards from the white. The renovation of the West Course resulted from the country club’s commitment to bring to its members the very best golf facility in Sarasota.
