My wife and I joined up with a pair of older gentlemen , who shot in the high 80's, however were excellent company and moved along quite well. We played in 3 1/2 hrs . the only down part of the day was the twosome of members behind us that drove into us 3 times over the 18 holes, with NO recogition of what had happened. we did not let them go through.., as we were waiting .HOWEVER.., we did not go home with a very good opinion of the Club members of Bardmoor olf Club. That is the end of my venting..!!


Player Tip: accuracy is definitely an asset..!! greens are true and a bit on the fast side..

I recommend this course

Course was challenging from the tips, but hated the hidden water hazards not visible from the tees or approaches on par 5`s. No maps to show hazards. No pin positions posted. Very basic practice area that you needed a token (nobody said anything in the pro-shop. Greens rolled OK but were not in great shape. Fairways were not great, had to play "winter" rules. Staff not helpful. No starter. We fended for ourselves. Halfway house closed before we made the turn and limited water on the course

Play was very slow-almost 5 hours because of a very slow foursome a couple of groups ahead of us. No course marshall ever appeared. Also some confusion at the first tee as there was no starter and 4 groups ready to go. Little evidence of staffing around.

The course was a nice course at a reasonable price through golfnow. The greens looked a little funky, but rolled better than they looked. The course was presented nicely with a friendly staff. The range wasn't really conveniently located to the course. The cart attendant gave us a ride to the range, but we were on our own to get back to the clubhouse. They wouldn't let us take a cart until 10 minutes before our tee time, and there were a dozen ready carts sitting there at the end of the day.

Nice course. Well thought out layout. Took a few holes to get used to the speed of the greens. You had to be careful that the downhill putts didn't get away from you. There were a few marginal tee boxes but not a big deal. Overall a fun course and worth the trip. There were a few sneaky water hazards if you didn't know the course.

Course conditions nice as always. Played the shorter tees today and a few are pretty beat up. Fairways in nice condition, in one bunker with easy out since the sand was fine. Greens had some speed today and rolled smooth. Some crab grass creeping in that did affect the puts with minimal line deflection. Great place to play.

I play here now and then. Good fair test and usually in decent shape and handles water fairly well. Yesterday 10/22 was the first time this year the greens have been fast (guessing 9-10 on stimpmeter) which is preferred rather than what I typically see here which is slow and grainy. They really lock down the carts and won't let you check in until a few minutes before your tee time. Outside staff is limited so prepare to unload and load your own cart. They close their outside service hut too early and cart beverage service is sketchy at best, oh and you have to rind a bell for service at the bar versus having someone greet you. In a time where making a memorable experience from a service perspective is paramount Bardmoor falls short on service but makes up for it with a nice layout and above average course conditions. Oh...Bring cash or you will have to fill out this gigantic receipt form and thats really something you don't want floating around out there. They could use some advanced technology for processing credit cards, again service falls short.

I played from the white (silver) tees, and some of the tee boxes were simply not level. Beyond that, the course played great. A few elevated greens, surrounded by tight lies, forced a some creativity. The best, and most challenging, feature at Bardmoor is their lightning fast greens. 3-putts are the standard.

Loved the course. The greens are slick and challenging. The staff was courteous and got me out quick. I didn't use the driving range because I was late and the practice green is nice but small. If there is a tournament playing, there's no room.

It was a perfet day for golf, sunny with low humidity and boy, everyone was there. We waited on every hole and finished in 4 1/2 hours. The course conditions were excellent, staff was cordial and the price was right. Perhaps a brilliant Friday afternoon in Fall temperatures wasn't the smartest time to book a round there but I do recommend playing this course. It is one of the best in Pinellas county by far. .


Player Tip: Watch out for the hidden water hazards that can't be seen from the tee box and sometimes even from the fairways.

I have played Bardmoor several times and would recommend to play for any level of golfer. I don't feel this course "drains" well after a rain. Cart path only and made for slow play.

When dry, it is a good test of golf.

The course was fairly challenging but fair. Though it drizzled for a good bit of the round, the course (except bunkers) stayed very playable. the 6500 yardage is a good challenge requiring ball placement on many tee shots.

Staff also was great. We will be back.
