The challenging Harbourside and Islandside golf courses of Longboat Key Club have consistently been rated among the country's finest.
The Islandside Course, known as the "watery challenge," is a 6,792 yard course that borders the Gulf of Mexico with water hazards coming into play on all 18 holes. Tifdwarf grass on the greens ensures smooth putting surfaces. More than 5,000 palm trees, and pink and white blooming oleander line the fairways and canals, making Islandside one of Florida's most beautiful courses.
The Harbourside course presents a uniquely different golf experience from the Islandside course. This challenging 27-hole layout features of 3 nine-hole courses designed by Willard Byrd. The Mid-Senior Championship will be conducted on the Red course, 3,323 yards, and the Blue course, 3,386 yards. Bordering Sarasota Bay, the Harbourside course plays through stands of oak, sabal palm, fiddleleaf palm, Washingtonian palm, fig, palmetto and southern pine. Tree-lined fairways and swirling winds put a premium on shot-making and course strategy.
Male amateurs must be age 40 or older as of August 24, 2012, and be a member of the FSGA.
$190 ($200 - members who do not have an active FSGA/GHIN Handicap).
Fifty-four holes of individual stroke play. All players play eighteen holes each on the Horbourside Course and the Islandside Course on Friday, August 24th and Saturday, August 25th.

The lowest score for fifty-four holes will be the Champion. There will be a hole by hole play-off immediately following play in event of a tie for the Champion.
