The Good: If you plan on playing here bring your A game. Most of the fairways are either narrow and/or doglegs. Very challenging par 3's. I can't say for sure about the speed of the greens since they had a heavy rain the night before but they where in good shape. Playing from either the blue or the black (tips) makes the course easier, but does make the 4 of the 5 par 3's long.

The Bad: the fairways and rough have lots of bare spots. In my opinion it's a dangerous place, and you always have to be on the look out for balls from other holes, even while your on the tee boxes. It feels like they crammed this golf course in. Had to wait for other players from other holes to clear out of my fairway before I could play several times. The driving range is off mats only and very small and narrow. On two of the holes you had to be on the look out for errand shots from the range. Those same two holes are filled with range balls.

You need to go play Wentworth if you are considering golf in the area. Supreme value for the condition of course you're playing. At $19.95 for a round, you WILL NOT find a course with better greens. The are spectacular even at $80-100/round.

I found the course to be somewhat difficult as it is a placement course, but I liked the challenge. Most holes are well thought out.

A lot of courses in a small radius, Wentworth is still worth checking out - go play it!

Requires more thought than most courses in the area. If all you want to do is spray a driver, then go elsewhere. If you want to see if your golf game is good through the bag, pitch up here. I'd just suggest you wait until the course has recovered from the drought, but then the water hazards will add to the difficulty and the rates will probably be higher.

My son-in-law and I have been traveling from Michigan to the west coast of Florida for the last 15 years to play golf. On the last day of our trip this year, we played Wentworth, and are so very happy that we uncovered this gem. The course layout is absolutely excellent and very challenging. Considering the drought that Florida has been in this year, they have done a commendable job in keeping it in really good playing condition. General Manager Jesse Pratt was extremely pleasant and helpful to us in getting our tee time arranged and in explaining the course layout to us. Wentworth becomes the first stop on our trip next year.

Wenthworth is one of the most difficult courses in Pinellas County. Despite it's short set up, it's a course that needs to be well managed. If you don't overplay your tee shots, you will be better off, however many approach shots are very tough as well.

I have played it for years and it has always had the same problem. The areas around greens and tees need to be cleaned up. You may not be in a sand trap, but there is so much sand around the trap that you can wind up with many unfair lies. If the sand trap areas are better defined, and sand raked back into the bunkers those areas would afford better play.

Actually, I was a member for years and always said all they would have to do is rope off around the tees and the greens, not allow the carts to drive in those areas and the course conditions would greatly improve.

had a 12:30 tee time and to was extremely crowed at the start. after waiting 10 minutes past our time we finally started. waited on over 80% of all shots all day. waited on the about 50% of the tees up to 5 minutes to tee off. when we did encounter the on course ranger his answer was it is crowded and there was nothing he could do. finally finished in FIVE hours.

while this course is extremely difficult, having no one to get players to move along is unacceptable. and this is after the snowbirds have left for home already...

The 17 of 18 greens were in excellent shape. The fairways were in good shape. The sand traps were raked and the sand was soft. 3.5 hours to play 18 is most excellent.

Let me first say that the course and most of the staff are both excellent. After playing I left a few of my clubs to be regripped. After paying the kid in he pro shop told us we owed him $20 in cash for the installation. When I showed him the sign that stated "installation included" on sign for regripping he said it was wrong and we paid it. A few days later we left my husband's clubs for regripping. After paying, we asked him how much for labor, he said it was included in grip cost. We were scammed by this kid the first time but after being called out, he didn't try it again on us. We should have spoke to management the first time but instead, just paid the extra cash. Watch out for this scammer.

We apologize for this. This was a miscommunication on our end. We have a re-gripping fee of $3 per club and were running a new re-gripping special for no charge that was not properly communicated. Moving forward we will make sure we communicate better on any special promotions we are doing. We are willing to reimburse you for the re-gripping fee. Please contact Jesse at jpratt@ace-golf.com.

At age 71, playing it forward at Wentworth makes a great deal of sense. This former country club went through a course condition downturn but has come back to what it was 18 months after going public, a solid value. If your ego can take it, try playing it forward and hopefully you'll enjoy the new variety of clubs "required" to bring you score down and your spirits up.

however the course was in very poor condition.The tee boxes were mostly sand.

There was sand from the bunkers leeching all over the surrounding areas including several greens. Very disappointed!!
