Had three guests arrive early from Canada last weekend. Normally I would accompany them on their round at a private course of my choosing, thanks to my local connections. But I was out of town.  So how do I show them a great golf day without me there ? Easy….Misty Creek Country Club is a private golf club but just happened to be promoting  a  ” be a member for a day” special. I e-mailed them the address for their GPS and off they went. The boys enjoyed a private course, on a weekend, with cart for a whopping $59. They loved it. 

misty creek golf course sarasotaSituated just off the Bee Ridge Extension, Misty Creek is a gated neighborhood with housing options from the $400k range to well over a million. The golf course is special as the bulk of it is set in a wildlife preserve with no homes surrounding most holes. Clubhouse, practise range, restaurant grill, tennis courts…everything one needs. Oh…and the guys raved about the great Champions turf-grass greens.
