We enjoy this layout, haven't played here in years. After checking in at the shop we drive to the starter shack to meet a very rude employee, who offers no "hello" or anything of the sort. I then try to buy beers and ask for a cooler with ice. The employee states that they don't have coolers and ice. I find this hard to believe considering it's 96 degrees outside...and also the fact that this will be the first golf course I have ever played at that doesn't offer paying customers ice in the heat of summer. The icing on the cake was next....drove up to the 1st green to discover that all greens are temporary greens, something NOBODY in the shop or the starter shack thought worth mentioning. I will not be coming back here, temporary greens or not.

Have never played a course in my life that would not give a rain check after they sound the sirens alerting that there is dangerous weather in the area. Played only 6 holes when the sirens sounded and the staff had no problem taking my money and not offering a rain check. Staff was unfriendly and very unprofessional in dealing with the situation! I will not play here again due to staff. I will take my money and play courses that appreciate my business.

I live locally so I play this course often. the facilities are some of the best in this area. Great range, huge putting green, lob and bunker area, as well as a short game chipping green. the course is pretty open and normally in really good shape. From the Tips the course runs about 6700 yds but is pretty challenging. The course is very open so if the wind is blowing it plays much longer than advertised. The par 5's are long but very open. Some of the shorter Par 4's bring a lot of danger into play so you have to be smart off the tee to score well.<br/> Currently the greens are in rough shape but I'm sure that will be fixed soon.

From what i hear its one of the busiest courses in Florida so be patient and be prepared for a long round. But the prices are fair, and its a course i always recommend.

Happy Golfing!!!

It's the only championship municipal golf course in Saint Petersburg, and it's a pretty good one. The course itself is more than adequate, laid out among natural mangroves just a few hundred yards from the water. More impressive, however, are the practice facilities, the clubhouse and the par 3, giving this entire facility an in for every kind of player. This is where people who love golf come. No pretense and in some cases, not much in the way of golf clothes, but they all love it.
