I did not know they were recently aerated but the greens still rolled pretty good. I really enjoyed the layout. Now tee box, fairways and outlying areas really need some attention. I did not see any staff out working the grounds on a Sunday. Paid too much but still only shot 5 over!

upon arrival there was no one at the bag drop or the cart area, when we entered the pro shop were so so greeted by the gentleman at the counter and were informed that we would have to play the back nine twice, no reason given or discount offered. Proceeded back to the bag drop and loaded our clubs. Temperature was low to mid 90's with high humidity saw the drink cart on the 1st tee and the third tee, never again..At the turn we stopped at the grill and were told there were either ham or turkey sandwiches and that was all that was available.

1/2 a golf course, poor customer service, no drink cart, and understaffed or poorly stocked grill room.

DON'T THINK I'LL BE BACK

Arrived at course to find only 9 holes available, no discount offered, no one at the bag drop, front desk staff acted like it was a priveledge we were being allowed to play.

Fairways hadn't been mowed, beveredge cart came by one time in the two times we played the back nine. stopped at the club house at the turn and they had two options for sandwiches[ham or turkey]. For as highly touted tthis course was it was a total disapointment

Have played there twice in the last two weeks. Very challenging course but fair. Greens are excellent, fast and true. Sand traps were also in great condition. Fairways were in playable shape. The layout was interesting with varied holes. You need to play this course a few times to score well as you need to think about club selection on a number of the tee boxes. My only complaint is from the Gold tees it plays 6579 yrds which is long for me and from the Silver it plays 5782 which is short. Be nice if they could provide a combination of the two together to get to about 6000. Good course for the money. Highly recommend trying it.

Not a long hitter by any stretch of my imagination, but the course played very easily for my wife and I - although I guess I hit a fairway wood more often than normal.

The greens rolled perfectly and consistently, in fact I was annoyed by the group in front of us plumb bobbing every putt and trying to read greens like it was a PGA match. These greens aren't tricky and don't really break unexpectedly. The fairways were in decent shape but produced some tight lies.

Aside from the somewhat slowish pace of the group ahead of us, we really enjoyed our round here

My initial impression right from the start was positive.The pro-shop individual was super nice, and so were the starter and bartender. I did like the layout lots of holes going right to left which made for some challenging shot-making. I will return!

Played there recently. I always like this course. Pace was somewhat very slow at times, but picked up.

Greens were very good and somewhat fast, but not consistent from one green to the next.

Friendly staff, good clean carts. No beverage cart or rangers on course . Impressed that the new GM at the course replied directly about those issues when I mentioned it on their website. Will play it again ext year for sure.

The course is in ok condition. The fairways are not well defined between it and the rough on a lot of holes. Very disappointed in the condition of the areas around sand traps. Covered in sand and no grass growing.

Be prepared for a lot of dog-legs, both left and right which creates challenges for ball landing locations.

At $35 this is the best value in St Pete. However, I made the mistake of not checking directly with the course and there was no mention of a Best Ball tourney (13 4-somes) directly in front of out 3-Some.

5-Hour round late in the day that impacted all of our evening plans. Need a warning!!!

This was my first time playing the course with some history. Yes, this course hosted some PGA/LPGA events in the 80's but it is far from a course that could host any event today. The greens were nice, fairways and rough areas need maintenance as this is Spring and in Florida these areas should be growing in nicely. However, it is apparent that it's just being let go as is and no extra effort to make this a nice track again as it appears was the case in 198*. The price was too high for the conditions as there are several other courses on the West coast of Florida that are pristine with as good or better greens fees. I did enjoy the established layout but....

Sorry but this review should be ignored having played on all local courses for the last 3 months including Bardmoor last Sunday and many times over the years. Certainly the management has been rather snotty for a couple of years but the course is simply the best around. The staff attitude has improved over the last few months in terms of seeking a reasonable price to play, and in fact am booking right now for Wednesday.

I would add that I have previously played all the Fru Fru Naples courses which are certainly better than our area, but come at a huge cost. Remarkably, Bardmoor is now an excellent course to play and the staff have a rather less arrogant approach towards the customer..

My son and I played the course, after playing a far inferior course a few days earlier, for basically the same money. We really liked the layout of the course and the greens were in great shape. Round was right on 4 hours, we waited a bit but not long.

Played the course on a cold windy day. I ciuld see why the JC Penny Classic used to play here. The course is challenging with some long par 4s especially with the wind coming from the North. Par 3's are challenging with many hazards protecting them. The green are fast and true with lots of subtle breaks. You are wise to keep the ball below the hole. The fairways were somewhat dry, had lots of tight lies. Ball striking is very important. Staff was friendly. I would recommend this course.
