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..

Nice course. Friendly staff. First time playing here. The course is a city course and is extremely tight and has many holes that over-lap and criss cross. There are many fences guarding adjacent tee boxes. Course is well maintained, but will not recommend due to the extreme tightness of the course.

After 12.00 you can find a starter,I went out with a couple ,the pace was good but they quit after nine . Since nobody was on 10 I went out on my own . On 12 I caught up with a couple they never ask me me to join them . I waited 15 minutes on 13 to tee off by the time I reach the green it was 20 min later.looking ahead there was another couple just as slow. I played 14 and decide to quit there should be a starter to put these twosome together . What a waste of time and money.

I frequent Clearwater Beach and drag my clubs from MI to play in February. The course is simple and the condition is adequate for the time of year. It's close to where I stay and recommend it for the location.
