Florida is dry right now, so the course wasn't in the best shape. Some of the greens were a little rough, but overall a great value for the money.

Staff were very friendly especially the starter. Although the course was dry it was fairly green given the warm dry weather over the last few months. The Bermuda grass still grabs your club! There are a few areas where you must be very cognizant of players on adjacent holes. We were waiting in the middle of #8 for a group to in front of us when a drive off the seventh tee missed my partner's head by a foot. There was no "fore" warning. The course does have numerous areas screened around tee boxes and some greens. The course booklet is very helpful and yardages accurate. Always locate the embedded yardage marker on the tee as the blocks at times are more than ten yards different. The carts look brand new. The facilities are pleasant and well kept.

enjoyed the course. 3rd time playing it and thought the course was in good condition compared to other golf courses within 10 miles of it. some other courses are not as well kept as this one and this actually had grass on the fairways.

Tampa Bay has been really dry. Most courses are brown with very little grass. The fairways at this course were in excellent condition considering how dry it has been.

Greens in good shape. Cost to play a little high paid $50 for a $30 course. Holes 9-8-7, are very challenging, very close together lots of congestion. Even had two guys walking on the card path with a baby stroller. Walked right by me as I was getting ready to hit. Liked the course overall.

Had reserved tee time. Got there and league playing on front 9, so everybody was being put on back nine and every hole was a 10 to 15 minute wait. Took us 3 hours to play 9 holes and that is not acceptable. We even had to wait for a cart because you were all out and had to wait for people to come in to get one , no ranger on the coarse to move people along. I'm sorry but that is poor management. I've played this coarse many times and never had this experience. It will be a long time before I play it again.

Front nine has a lot of short holes, with water in play on about half of them. There is a malfunction junction where five holes have their greens or tees very close together and a series of low fences protecting the players from potential mishits. Back nine has a stretch of 5 long holes with minimal water. Course is in really nice shape and greens are very good. Pace of play was great because we were the second group out. Good practice area including a short game area. Enjoyable course and a good test for any level player..
