IMG Academy Golf Club
Magnificent Golf, Superb Amenities, Outstanding Service
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.
