River Strand Golf & C.C. in Bradenton boasts a 27-hole course designed by Arthur Hills. Hills took great care when routing the course to avoid the beautiful live oaks scattered across the landscape. The holes are divided into three nines: the Estuary, Tributary, and Sanctuary, that can be played individually or in three different 18-hole combinations. The Sanctuary golf course has a seemingly gentle opening hole but don't let the lack of bunkers fool you. Irregularly shaped mounding frames the left side and bleeds into the fairway in several spots, which can make for some tough lies on the approach shot to the green. The final hole is a short par 5 where a birdie or eagle is definitely a possibility if you carefully strategize how to make it to the long, linear green that is guarded on both the left and right with bunkers.
