Golf at IMG


Home to the IMG Academy golf students, the natural beauty of IMG Academy Golf Club is both rivaled and complimented by a great golf experience. The Golf Club features an 18-hole championship golf course, multiple practice areas, grille room and bar, as well as a fitness room that provides an array of fitness and cardio equipment. It is a true test for low handicap players, and also eminently playable for high handicappers who consider it extremely fair, yet challenging. 

Opened in 1972 as a private country club, the original course was a 6,673 yard, par 72 layout. Slender pines, majestic oaks and native foliage along with scenic lakes, provide and extremely playable and enjoyable golfing experience set amidst natural Florida habitat. 

In 2003, the course was lengthened to 6,855 from the back tees, with a spectacular "island" green for No. 10. TifEagle was planted on greens and TifSport on the fairways, tees and rough, creating an all-around "new course fee: for our members and guests. Most recently, we have renovated our short-game practice area, enhancing our multiple practice areas for members and guests. 

Our Bar and Grille Room offers a panoramic view of the Sarasota Bay extending into our event and banquet room. This view provides a memorable dining Bayside experience, while enjoying the beautiful Southwest Florida sunsets.

Testimonials

Dear Jeff,
I really don't know where to start to thank you for helping us make our golf outing such a success. Even with only 52 golfers we were able to make a very nice donation to both the youth group and church. Of course, we weren't shy about asking for the money for every possible thing we could think of. Another great moneymaker was the putting contest. It was such a big hit several played it more than once. I'm sure you know that you have an exceptional staff of people working for you, from the top on down. Your pro, Rob, was so easy to work with and Charlie and the entire staff were pleasant, polite and helpful no matter what we asked them to do. We really appreciated the staff shuttling us back and forth and also collecting all the items after we finished golf, including our coolers, scissors, and proximity and sponsor signs. No other club has done that for us. And the dining room..... special people, special service, and very wonderful food. Everyone's comments were positive, including Fr. Joe. ( He said his beef was excellent.) Not being a fan of buffets, he was nevertheless impressed as were the other priests. ~Sincerely, Pat Peters Our lady Queen of Martyrs Golf Outing

Dear Mr. Parsons,
On Friday, April 3, 2015 Temple Beth El had a Passover Seder in the dining room. We had 100 people for the meal. I want to let you know how happy we were with the special food that was prepared for us. It was delicious. I want to commend Cesare for such a caring job. The wait staff was so helpful and friendly. Any new thing that arose as the date came closer Andrea Maki had a smile in her voice and an answer to our question. I hope this is the first of many events at IMG Academy Golf Club.
~Sincerely, Sheila Kovalsky

Dear Jeff,
Just a short note to let you know how much I appreciate you and your staff. I have attended several birthday luncheons and have been so pleased with all the attention to detail. They certainly go above and beyond. Thank you also for allowing us to host our book club there. I am very grateful.

Andrea,
Thank you for all of your help with the planning of Marissa and Zack's wedding! We appreciate how easy it was to work with you and your attention to all the details.

Dear Mr. Shank,
On behalf of The Pennsylvania Club of Colony Cove, I must express our thanks for the hospitality extended by the IMG staff on the occasion of our recent Spring Holiday function at your beautiful facility. This was a repeat Club affair following our Christmas luncheon with you last year, and we were more than pleased with our decision to duplicate that earlier, most enjoyable time. In fact, we so enjoyed this, our repeat selection, that we've already contracted for the third - for our coming year ending event on December 8, 2016. We have found that your staff is most helpful and pleasantly offers every possible form of assistance; your food thoroughly appealing and much more than satisfying; and the ambience provided by the "surrounding" view a most difinite plus. In summarizing words - we can't ask for anything more!
~Very truly yours, Mrs. Eleanor H. Solty's, Director


"We hosted my sons wedding on May 14, 2016. WOW!! Everything from the wedding ceremony on the golf course to the reception was fantastic. Food was wonderful, everything was delicious. Andrea Makie and the IMG staff were very helpful and courteous. The guests raved about the venue and how beautiful everything was.

A PERFECT day and venue. I would highly recommend IMG for a wedding or any other event. Can't thank you all enough."
