"Donna, I would like to compliment you for your efficiency, professionalism and readiness during all the time for the rehearsal dinner, ceremony and reception. I can not forget the lovely staff and waiters there were kind for all events.
We got so many compliments for the food during the reception, it was really amazing. We were all very happy. Thank you so much. Again, thanks for everything. I would definitely refer you and IMG for our friends. Congratulations!"
"Donna, a very special THANK YOU for a fabulous event. The set-up, servers and food was excellent. Our compliments to IMG for another fabulous event. I look forward to working with you on future events.
You made the entire process seamless and easy on me! I really appreciate ALL that you do."

"You've done it again! Another successful event. I've had some very nice feedback from our guests (mentioning both the good lunch and the wonderful view). Thank you so much for your help and your patience. You have been a kind and helpful leader. THANX! I'll be baaaaack!!!"
"Thanks Donna- for making our Columbus Day event a great success! we appreciate that every plan was executed to the minutest detail. I like to recognize those who perform with excellence, and the IMG Golf Club staff is to be commended. We enjoyed the luncheon- that may be the best steak salad ever. This is not the first time you have exceeded our expectations. Our Longevity Luncheon last year was flawless. Keep up the great work! I wish you the very best and if there is anything you need from me personally or from our office, you know whom to call! Be blessed."

"I recently got married and set up a golf event for attendees, although most could not make it, the staff at the course was first class from the guys in the pro shop to the starters, everyone was gracious and friendly. I wish this course was close to my home; the layout was challenging, which I love, and the conditions impeccable. I took a stab in the dark choosing this course and hit a homerun. If you are considering playing in the Bradenton area or Long Boat Key, don't miss this beauty. Thanks again fellas for starting my wedding day off with a great time." ~ Guest
"I enjoy the total professionalism in all areas of the IMG community. The golf course is a pleasure to play and very well taken care of. Jeff Parsons has a total understanding of all operations and seems to be very fair when handling any problems. The Golf Shop is very member & service oriented. I really have no complaints but I do have alot of Thank You's"
"My husband and I have nothing but praise for your establishment and are already looking forward to our time there next winter. It was so wonderful to experience such a capable, friendly staff- on all levels"
~Ed & Lynne Anne McDermott, Seasonal Members
"I enjoyed all the activities at IMG for the winter season-although because of health issues was unable to fully participate in the golf. My wife and I also enjoyed the many theme nights. I am proud to be a member at IMG."
~Ralph Peters, Social Member
"Being a member since 1979, obviously I love it. I treasure my winters in Bradenton. I have so many friends who are also members. These friendships made thru our common interest in golf and social outings means a great deal to me. I believe the current staff is doing a great job in satisfying all of us."
~Nancy Kane, Social Member
"Management and service of this Golf Club I found to be excellent in all respects. I enjoyed my seasonal 2 month membership and hope to return next winter."
"Start with a challenging course in great condition and then factor in the camaraderie associated with membership in the Men's Golf Association and you end up with an immeasurable experience. From October thru April the MGA returns a monthly event that allows players from all tee levels to come together. Some of the events run by the MGA include a 3-day Member/Member challenge; a 3-day Ryder Cup/Presidents Cup challenge; a 4-man Scramble and a Veterans Day challenge. Membership in the MGA is open to all types of IMG Golf Memberships. I am in my 8th year of membership and really enjoy the course and surrounding activities here at IMG."
~Jack Graham, Full Golf Member
"Having been a member of the club for the past 14 years I have found that the management and staff of IMG Academy Golf Club have shown outstanding professionalism in every aspect of running the club. For the past 5 years I have chaired an outside golf and dinner outing for more than 100 participants and have been amazed and pleased with the handling and help in making the function a premier event. Each year the management has surpassed our memberships expectations with improvements to the course and capital improvements to the clubhouse. We are proud to call IMG our club of choice!"
~Rick McKendry, Social Golf
