SARASOTA - This week’s Dream 18 is Hole #8 at Sara Bay Country Club. Sara Bay is located at 7011 Willow Street in Sarasota.

Hole #8 is a Par 3 that plays 160 yards.

The course was designed in 1925 by the “dean of golf course architects”, Donald Ross, on a choice piece of land near Sarasota Bay that included undulating terrain, native trees, and a meandering creek.

The greens at Sara Bay Country Club, more than any other of his courses, mirror his famous design at Pinehurst No. 2. Brian Silva, a leading expert on Ross designs, confirmed this similarity when he undertook the restoration of the course in 1991. In the fall of 2006, Silva completed an extensive renovation.

Sara Bay Country Club remains one of the most distinguished and well-manicured in the state.
