Always in near tournament condition and maintained at PGA Tour standards. A challenging course and fun to play. Pace of play was 3 1/2 hours! The customer service from a great staff makes for an enjoyable experience.

Course is well maintained and in great condition. All tee boxes are even, fairways soft. Greens are fast and true. Different tee boxes are providing fair chances for almost all hcp's. Overall the course is very well managed. Pace of play good. Staff very friendly - starting at backdrop, in the proshop and the starter. Beverage cart came by 4 times during the round - also very friendly. Although this is one of the more expensive courses I do recommend it as it is worth the money.

Atmosphere is sad, starter way over explains things. Place was burnt and a lot of patches on the greens. Nothing like a TPC should look like. For 100$ a round not worth it at all.

We played this on Tuesday for the first time but got rained out after 9 so decided to come back Friday for a full 18. Really glad we did! Great course, beautifully maintained. The staff was friendly and helpful ( the Ranger even helped my buddy find his ball in the rough!!). Wonderful day. I''ll be back.

There was far too much standing water the course conditions were terrible.

They should have closed the course rather than "cart path only" restrictions.

I cannot say enough good things about the layout and condition of this course. It's a little pricey for the average golfer but TPC courses are always a cut above most courses I play. The greens rolled true and quick. The tee boxes were in great shape and the course in general was beautiful. I was the first tee time off which I always love and was paired with a guy that really played well. My only knock was mother nature...golf in Florida in the summer can be brutally hot no matter how early you tee off. The heat really gets to me and by the end of the round I was really dragging. No fault at all to the course or staff. Thoroughly enjoyed my round and the pro shop had some great deals on shrits and swag that I took advantage of. Will play again next time I swing through.

3 of us really enjoyed our visit to TPC Tampa. The only slight downside was that the greens had been recently tined and sanded but that is normal at this time of year.

Good variety of short holes and plenty of water to avoid throughout the course. Tough finishing stretch.

Definitely worth a visit if you are in Tampa.

Head pro Justin Wink went out of his way to make me feel welcome and to make up for the fact that I was not notified of aeration conditions prior to my booking a tee time. He sent me an email on the morning of my round and then personally came out on the course to find me to see how my round was going and to apologize for the late notice of the course conditions. He offered to invite me back to play again at a discounted rate when the course conditions are optimal. However, I live out of town and was not sure when I would be back in the Tampa area. So, instead, he discounted my rental clubs. All of the other club/course staff were EXTREMELY nice. I was flying out directly after playing, so the staff made sure I was set up with a locker, towels, and toiletries to get cleaned up after my round. I can't say enough good things about the staff at this course.

As for the course, the greens were a little bumpy and sandy still after being aerated about 2 weeks prior. However the fairways were almost completely back to normal. Course was in good condition, plenty of water stations for the hot temps. Challenging but fair course with a premium on shot placement. It was an enjoyable round on a well laid out course with an EXCEPTIONAL staff.

Neither Golfnow nor the course disclosed that aeration had just occurred this week. But, the course itself was enjoyable to play. Bag boys were horrible. Put the strap around my wife's bag across the putter shaft. Fortunately it didn't get bent. Also, strapped across my towels, club cleaner - really? Then, the drink cart left the course around 2 after we were told it would come by the front nine. I think the course would be fun to play without the aeration, I won't go back after being treated the way we were treated.

I was contacted by GolfNow - the error in not disclosing the aeration was in GolfNow's processing not the TPC Tampa Bay.

This review truly isn't about the staff. Very good staff. I just think the course is overpriced big time!!!!!!!!! There simply are better options around. Sorry.

"Feathersound, Buckhorn Springs, Avila, to name a few that have far greater practice areas, draining, and upkeep. For a course that is part private, the short game area is horrible, the course doesn't drain well at all, and the rough is horrible. Now I understand there has been a lot of rain but I played my home course "Buckhorn Springs" that took the near same amount of rain and dried 50 times better. Several holes are cart path only and while playing a 100+ dollar round and a ball is lost because it plugged or is down in that ridiculously deep rough, you bet I am going to try and find my ball and play it. I WANT to post a score at a "TPC Course" so I am using every single minute I am allowed to find my ball. So sorry for those who were held up, I play my ball and post 'real scores' especially at 100+ dollar golf course. Sorry, might be my last time ever playing this course. Sad because it is a good layout.
