Be sure to check out our 2008 Manatee/Sarasota Golf Guide, which was inserted in Sunday's Bradenton Herald and Lakewood Ranch Herald. Low handicap players and duffers alike will want to keep a copy handy.
Besides a course locator map and essentional information on where to play, the guide includes some helpful stories written by golf reporter Mike Henry on improving your game and tracking down local bargains.
Mike, a true golf historian and devotee of the sport, might also start a few arguments with his Top 20 lists of the game's best players, courses and notable moments. Would you rank seven players ahead of Tom Watson? Could there be a course better than Augusta National, where the greatest story ever unfolded in 1986?
We also included our Dream 18 holes -- showing layouts and descriptions of the spectacular holes that make Manatee/Sarasota such an inviting place to play.
Enjoy the guide, and start making some tee times!
