Once known as the Islandside Course, Links on Longboat was redesigned by Ron Garl in 2014 to great acclaim. Expansive natural areas and wide greens meet soft Gulf breezes for a restorative golfing experience. Links on Longboat measures 6,748 yards from end to end with five sets of tees to accommodate any level of play. The course’s Par 71 layout demands accuracy off the tee. Many of our holes feature small waterways that flow along one side of the fairway to prompt you into a placement decision. Once you have driven your ball in a good fairway position, the fun really starts. Our innovative new Ron Garl design challenges your iron play but does not punsih you for an errant shot. Fewer bunkers and more grassed collection areas allow for an easy pitch to the hole even if you’ve missed the green. Each green has been completely reshaped to Ron’s creative vision and all 18 holes have been re-grassed with premier salt tolerant Platinum Paspalum grass. Links on Longboat is lined with 5,000 Palm trees and pink and white Oleanders and accented by rich natural Florida wildlife and greenery.
