Dream 18: Tara Golf and Country Club, No. 12

  • 0

Tara Golf and Country Club is on a 550 -acre site situated west of Interstate 75 and south of State Road 70 in Bradenton, Florida.

The development project consists of a golf course, residential homes, retail and commercial properties.  The 6,800-yard par 72 championship golf course is a Ted McAnlis design on 120 beautifully manicured acres. The course was renovated in 2009 by renowned Golf Course Architect, Ron Garl.

The course features scenic conservation areas and the practice facilities include a driving range and putting green. There is organized league play and special events for golfers of all abilities.  Hole #12 is a par 4 with risk/reward approach to a green.

To play this hole well, a good drive in the middle of the fairway, staying away from the bunkers on the right side and the tree line and out of bounds on your left. The approach to this green is tricky, as there is a very large bunker in front and having the green be narrow, you must approach with a high soft shot.

If going for the green isn’t an option, playing down the left-hand side following the fairway will give you a nice chipping area for your approach.  Tara Golf and Country Club is among the well-known golf course communities in the area.
