Featured Golf Course Review:
Waterlefe Golf & River Club -- Waterlefe - Exceptional Winter Golf Experience
Review by: Robert Snider The first thing you notice about Waterlefe Golf and River Club is the beautiful landscaping aligning the drive to the clubhouse. The course is no different. It was in exceptional condition. We played the ball down with no alibies. While the "High Season" rates are a bit steep,(they include a sleeve of Pro V1's), the course could not have been in better shape. The Tifeagle greens, a form of Bermuda which requires no winter rye overseed, were in mid-summer form, even in February, and arguably the finest greens of any course anywhere. There are a number of holes which require a significant "carry" over either water or other non-playable terrain, so it may provide more challenge than most high handicappers prefer. Play about the course moved well and we saw the ranger numerous times throughout the round. Interestingly, the sign on the ranger's cart reads "player assistance." The carts are equipped with GPS which provided us with almost all the distance and hole layout information we needed to play the correct shots. My partner and I played with two member/residents, Gary and Angelo, who were friendly and helpful, as was the staff. The layout was well designed, providing some breathtaking views, and did not resemble the typical flat Florida concept. I highly recommend this course to anyone who craves the high-end country club experience without having to actually join one.

River Isles Golf Course -- Socially the Best
Review by: Easy Edd I enjoy the River Isles Golf Course because of all the social activities going on each week. On Tuesday the men have a league and compete for prizes based on a handicap system. The ladies have the course on Thursday mornings and do the same thing. On Saturday they have a mixed league and lots of friends get together to enjoy the fun of competition on the course. Refreshments are always part of the leagues which provides time to visit with all the other golfers. Several times a year they have tournaments for all to join and with your handicap you can play with the best golfer and have a chance to win. The monthly fee of $35 for unlimited golf will not last forever so I would encourage you to give it a try.

River Isles Golf Course -- Just plain nice!
Review by: Dave Esse Followed a golf cart down a street and after a few turns saw a golf course I would have never expected. Asked if I could play, They said it is a private course, however if I would like to join a foursome it would be okay. Four a mere $11 to play 18, I had the best time. It is a great course to hone your chipping and putting skills. A few nice par 4's on narrow fairways would challenge the most accomplished golfer I am a 5 handicap on a regulation course and had all I could do to catch the other 3 I played with. Good time , nice people. Hope to get to Bradenton again to meet my new friends.
