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.

Played a twilight special. Course was full and moved at a slow but steady pace. No starter or marshall so singles were in the mix. I was fortunate to find two other golfers at the first tee and we enjoyed the round. Both were familiar with the course and it's grand history of hosting pro events. Playing from 6600 yds provided an ample challenge for this 70 year old. Good shots are rewarded and misplaced ones cause duress. Greens were smooth and medium speed with hidden undulations. No plain Jane layout, keeps your interest on every hole.

It's a 3 hour ride from my home in Gainesville, but a course I enjoy greatly when in the St Pete/ Largo area.

There are few decent courses in the area. This one used to be great but it's hard to invest in keeping the fairways pristine. We finished in 4 hours, so no issue there. Be careful on pricing. No great deals that I could find and their own website is higher that Golfnow.
