When course designer Mark Alden was charged with the Serenoa Golf Club project he obviously set out to design a course unlike the typical Sarasota golf course. His vision combined with the existing wetlands & natural lay-of-the-land to create a masterpiece that Florida Golf News calls one of the top 100 courses in Florida and one of the top three in Sarasota!
What Alden did was to take the rubberstamp Florida golf course and throw it to the wind. He took the short 6270-yard layout and made it play more like 7200 by bringing water into play on almost every hole - creating a true shot-maker`s course! So forget the usual tee-shot between two bunkers to a slightly elevated green guarded by two bunkers - the typical Sarasota course - and welcome the variety and stiff challenge of Serenoa Golf Club.
