Sherman Hills Golf Club, is a Public, 18 hole golf course located in Brooksville, Florida. Sherman Hills is conveniently located off Interstate 75, just a 45 minute drive north of Tampa and 60 minutes west of Orlando.
The course was designed by Ted McAnlis. The course is maturing nicely, having first opened in 1993.
The course has two distinct nines. The front nine is more of a wide open links style, while the back nine is lined with oak trees and requires more accuracy. Water hazards come into play on three holes.
Sherman's front nine was artfully carved from pastureland, accented by long waste areas of native sand and huge landscaped mounds that screen out I-75 along the sixth and seventh holes. The back nine plays through several oak groves, with an umbrella-shape oak in the 11th fairway and several more specimens framing the 17th green. Sherman Hills finishes with a flourish, a 594-yard hole that plays over a man-made hill, then down to a peninsula green surrounded by a pond.

Open links style course on front nine with few homes on course. Back nine somewhat tighter with large oaks lining 4 of 9 fairways.

2 Different nines. Front nine open but GREATLY affected by wind. Back nine shorter but shot placement a must, much narrower. Best 3 finishing holes North of Tampa. Greens in good shape with overseeded winter rye. Fairways in OK shape. Straight hitters will score really well here, LOTS of OB if you are long and spray the ball. Good deals in the pro-shop!
