This week's dream hole is number 4 at Manatee Golf Course.
The course is located on State Road 70 just east of Bradenton Beach and Anna Maria Island. It winds through natural wetlands, water hazards and many strategically placed fairway and greenside bunkers.
This challenging layout will test even the most advanced player. 2013 saw continued improvements by Pope Golf including upgrading the greens to TifEagle Bermuda, a superior grass typically found on better courses and country clubs.
With its proximity to Long Boat Key, Bradenton Beach and Anna Maria Island and having the only full length driving range, Manatee Golf Club is a favorite among locals and vacationers.
