Harbourside opened for play in 1982. Many of the holes border the Sarasota Bay and our own Longboat Key Club Moorings which makes for a beautiful setting.
The White Egret nine measures 3,426 yards and has the least amount of water of the three nines. The Red Hawk was recently redesigned by architect Ron Garl who challenges the golfer with many risk and reward opportunities. More open and forgiving than the White Egret, this nine has water that plays into many shots. The Red Hawk measures 3,323 yards and this past season the entire nine was re-sodded with the ever popular Platinum Paspalum grass. This new playing surface gives you a great lie every time and makes the game a pleasure to play.
The final nine at Harbourside is our famous "Blue Heron" measuring 3,401 yards-our signature nine of all 45 holes here at Longboat Key Club. This nine was redesigned in 2005 and this year re-sodded with the new Platinum Paspalum grass as well. It contains nine "signature" holes and challenges every part of your game. Tree-lined fairways and swirling winds put a premium on shot-making and course strategy.
