1000 Circus Blvd
Sarasota, FL 34232-1228, United States

Owned and operated by the City of Sarasota, this is a 45-hole complex named for the legendary Robert Tyre Jones, Jr., who dedicated the facility in-person on Sunday, February 13, 1927. The original 18 holes (the "British Course") were designed in 1926 by Donald Ross. The "American Course" opened with nine holes in 1952, followed by the second nine in 1967. The John H. Gillespie Executive Course was completed in 1977.

Very slow play. Foursomes with empty fairway in front of them would not let a twosome play through.

Everything in the last 2 comments still ring true for now. it's a good deal and every bit of $37 I was expecting to get.

@bthoss's comments are still reasonably accurate for March, 2011. The "American" is shorter and a bit tighter - lots of little areas to the side that will grab an errant shot. The "British" is just a longer version of the "American". The ambience is truly "American Muni". Lots of regulars, lots of 70+ year olds, tiny practice green and truly awful driving range. Still, I liked it. At $31.50 to walk 18 holes in March it is a bargain. The fact that they allow walking it a real plus in my book (except when you are trailing a 4-some of octogenarians). The greens rolled reasonably well and were quick. There was sand in the bunkers and grass on the fairways. It is certainly not the most picturesque layout but it works for this golf-starved northerner.
