The fairways were like concrete took a toll on playing the full 18 was glad when it was over. Iv'e played here at least 3 times a year for over 20 plus years I won't be back. After the front nine I got to #10 and found 3 foursomes waiting to start their round. I was told they just closed the front for maintenance - what gives here . I left never to return!

For the third time in three tries I was told the it was wide open (I was trying to get a round in before my wife got off work), and for the third time the gentleman behind the desk flat out lied to me. This time when I asked and he said it was clear I informed him that the last two times he had indicated that I had gotten stuck behind groups before the end of the third hole. He assured me that it was "clear", and that I "should be able to fly right around". Today I caught the first group at hole three, let me through on four, caught the next group on six, let me through on seven, and caught the last group on eight and they did not let me through. I work in a customer service position. Two things are paramount, be nice and be honest. So, instead of potentially losing my green fee for today because my schedule might have precluded me from playing a busy course, this establishment has lost my business permanently because of a lack of integrity.

They claim to have the best greens in Tampa. Every green had patches of sand on it. Every fairway had crabgrass/weeds all over the place so you could find the middle of the fairway and still have to hit out of some thick weeds. The tee boxes are beat up and divots are everywhere on all the tee boxes. The cart paths NEED to be repaved. You're better off staying on the fairway as you drive otherwise it's a bumpy ride for sure. If they pride themselves the way they advertise it, then they need to get new management, cause it is completely rundown. The website says they have a driving range, but it's only a hitting net and it cost 50$ for an 830am tee time. Had I known the condition of the course before I paid, I would have left. Not worth half the price I paid. Extremely disappointed with this course. Will not go back and will not recommend to anyone.

Many greens are sloped back to front and they were running fast. Any ball above the hole was trouble. You're better off playing short on your approach shots.

Rather wide fairways and accessable greens. Greens were fast and hard to read. Don't drive on cart paths because they are in bad shape and can really jar your back. Will play again

This course has a nice layout, through a residential community. Greens were in good shape and rolled fast but true. Fairways were very dry with some patches of invasive grasses. The rough was burnt and brown with some areas of no grass. Was worth the Last Minute Golfer price of $25, but TLC is needed to bring this course back to its potential as a 4 star track

The greens were in excellent condition!

Fairways could use a few good watering, but that's quite common for the dry season.

Loved the layout. Played the whites and it posed a lot of angled shots.

Definitely will play again!

Its been a long time since I played North Dale. The course seems to be well maintained. The greens are super fast and I had forgotten the degree of difficulty on them. It was a Friday (non-holiday) at 10:00 am and it was super packed...? I saw at one point golfers sharing clubs and another where there were 5 golfers on 2 carts?! That was a first. Overall a good course and a great day!

I played here with 3 buddies on my birthday. It was a cold day with rain earlier in the day so the course was empty. The course layout was fun with water in play on many of the holes. The course was in good condition. The price was really affordable. Give this course a try.
