I got confused as to where the next tee was sometimes as this is a course that has over time had parts of the City grow into it.

The course was forgiving of mistakes which matters to a poor golfer such as myself. I shot my best round of the year here (unfortunately I don't get out as much).

Would definitely come back again with the right deal, the everyday price is a bit high. The club house is beautiful and I want to see more of the place.

This is one of Florida's oldest courses. The layout is basically medium to narrow fairways with giant oak trees lining both sides of the fairways. If you keep the ball in the fairway, a good score is easily attainable. Put it in the oaks and it will cost you strokes. The course was in excellent condition. The fairways were green and had some give to them. The greens were well maintained and the ball rolled true. Very few fairway bunkers and water only on two holes and even on those holes it only comes into play with a poor shot. My biggest criticism is that all the holes look alike. The only difference is the length and a few are doglegs. I would have preferred a little more variety.

Nice layout with very nice greens.

Lots of trees. The bad part is the "Bunkers" would be much better with real sand instead of dirt.

Evidently this course only recently began allowing non-members to play. This may be my new favorite course in Tampa. Tee boxes, fairways, and greens were fabulous. Lounge area, including outdoor patio set-up, superb. The only knock on this place that I could see is there is no practice range.

As most of the reviews state - you'll not find any better greens on a non-resort golf course than you find here.

The fairways are plenty wide to hit, but good luck trying to find your ball should you venture off the fairway much. There are so many leaves and uncut weeds just a few feet off the fairway throughout the whole course - you'll spend more time than you should have to trying to locate your ball.

Poor attention to detail gripe #1:

There is not a drop of drinking water on the course - This has been brought up to the staff several times the past few years. There is water available at the clubhouse and vending machines on the course (at least one per nine holes) but $3 for a sugary drink ... c'mon staff - spend a few bucks to put a couple of water jugs out there on each side !

Poor attention to detail gripe #2:

Who's bright idea is it to allow people to use the 10th fairway as a practice range during open play on a Sunday afternoon? I hit a fairly nice drive, clearing the crest of the fairway and staying right in the middle (to avoid all the afore mentioned leaves and tall weeds off the fairway) ... I drive up to find 75+ golf balls scattered throughout the middle of the fairway as a couple was using the down slope side of the hole as a driving range. If this was my first time on the course - I'd think - oh a couple of rude golfers. However - as this is my 5th or 6th time out here in the past few years - this appears to be a standard practice - to use the 10th fairway as a range. A half dozen to a dozen balls - OK - I can live with that. BUT 75+ golf balls ... it took me several minutes to sort through them all to find mine and of course the couple just kept hitting them out on the fairway as our group played through.

Great greens you have ... but poor attention to other course details and your course is only a half a step away from being a "basic public" course !

March 17 2017, Trees with fully grown new leaves yet there are dead leaves everywhere. Hard to find your ball even if you hit a good shot. The course itself isn't very nice. The municipal courses where I'm from (Ontario Canada) are much nice and better maintained which is saying a lot. Not worth the 1 hour drive from where we were staying. There are much better courses, save time and money.

Great track. The greens are in great condition. Pace of play was hampered by a 5 some and a single in front of us. The 5 some teed off from #1 in full view of the clubhouse. ?? The fairways are very tight with not much grass and hard dirt. Good value for the money.

Pace of play was terrible. A foursome of members would not let a single golfer play through. Another Single golfer caught up to them and finally myself and my partner caught up. The members refused to let anyone play through and multple members would hit multiple balls from the tee box and the fairway. The course should do something about members like this. The greens had dried out so badly by noon you could not stop a ball by any hole on a slope. The ball would roll all the way to the fringe before stopping.
