Longboat Key Club & Resort Review

This spectacularly landscaped property is one of the best places to play golf in the state, and among the top tennis resorts in the country. The debate is about what attracts more guests: the 45 holes of challenging golf or the 291-slip marina. It could also be the Island House Spa or the delicious dinner in the resort's Sand's Pointe, one of six restaurants on the property. Water is the test on both golf courses, which have excellent pro shops. Hobie Cats, kayaks, and deep-sea charters are available. The 20-court Tennis Gardens is an outstanding tennis facility. All rooms have balconies overlooking the golf course, beach, or private lagoon where manatees and dolphins are occasionally spotted. Golf and dining facilities are for guests and members only.
