Bardmoor Golf and Tennis Club is an upscale golf course located in the city of Largo, FL. This semi private golf course has all the amenities and looks of a high end private country club. This irresistible yet complex golf course was the host of the PGA/LPGA JC Penney Golf Classic, and many other prestigious tournaments. The natural beauty and abundant wildlife of Bardmoor will sometimes cause you to lose focus of your game. No worries, pause, refocus put on your sunglasses, then pull out your "A" game and have some fun.

      Bardmoor is a local favorite golf course and a great place to invite out of town guests. The course has four sets of tee boxes ranging from 7015 to 5054 yards. The slope rating for the championship tees (Black) is 74.2/131. I played the Gold tees, with a slope rating of 72.0/127 at 6579 yards. Each time I play the course it is a whole new experience of joy and laughter. I have shot as low as 78 and as high 92. Today, I was happy with my 84. One feature of Bardmoor worth mentioning is their high tech greens. They have newly reconstructed Tifeagle greens which deliver an excellent true quality putting surface with a vibrant color. To complement the greens the sand traps have been filled with sparkling white fluffy sand. Golfers who like to spend a lot of time in the woods will be happy to know that it is hard to lose balls among the pine trees, however hitting off the pine needles presents a whole new set of problems. Seek the comfort of the fairway.

      There are several holes at Bardmoor that I would consider their signature holes. My favorites are holes #3, #7, and #14. Hole #14 is the most picturesque. It should be noted that all the par 3's are stunning and no one I have played with has ever shot even par on all four. Here is what I liked about the three signature holes.

      Hole #3 is a relatively long par 3 (187 yards from the Gold tees) with an elevated green that has a false front and serious drop offs on the sides and back. There is a large pond on the right of the green which cuts into the fairway. There is another pond which is hidden on the left side of the green. Additionally, there is a large sand trap that fronts and wraps around the left side of the green, and it is between the green and pond on the left. If your ball flight is fading left, quickly ask the golf Gods for a safe landing in the sand trap.

     Hole #7 is a slight dogleg right, par 4, that requires a high top draw to hit the fairway. The hole has a small lake along the full length of the fairway on the right, with a couple of tall trees fronting the dogleg. On the left side of fairway are three large well spaced bunkers at the dogleg which really narrows the fairway. Beyond the bunkers is a heavily marshy area with a small creek and area that is marked out of bounds.

     Hole #14 is a driveable, dogleg left, par 4 for long ball hitters. What makes this hole so exciting is the large pond that runs the full length of the fairway and fronts the elevated green, which is protected by three deep greenside sand traps. As an extra added attraction the green is long and narrow, with a cluster trees to the left and behind the green.

     The day I played Bardmoor the course was busy, but not slow. I enjoyed the practice area, range and putting green. The pro shop is well stocked and the grille is delightful. I have golfed here several times and it's a place I enjoy bringing my friends. I'm sure you will enjoy it as well.

This course is always in good shape. Greens are large targets & rolled true and are fast as to be expected playing here. If you get into the rough (as I do often) the sod from houses may be under your ball, pretty thick stuff

Great greens.....Average fairways........poor tee decks

I was lead to believe this course was above the others, but save your money.If the cost is below $30 it's a deal.

Anything over that , it's over priced.

Started off behind an event so was slow off the first tee but that was to conclude after 6 holes. Then we found we were behind a 5-some playing from multiple tee boxes so the play was slow. Liked the very fast but fair greens and the course layout. Staff was very helpful, I lost a towel and even though I did not find it they were helpful .!!would play again.

Have been in Tampa for the last month, golfing every other day. This course was the most enjoyable of all the public courses we played, and we have played some well out of the area. The value is excellent.

Unfortunately we are now heading home but would love to play it again when we return next year.

There weren't enough carts ready. Everyone was scrambling to get a cart from golfers coming into parking lot. We waited at every hole, which made the round tedious and tiring. It is a beautiful course, but they crowd people onto it too much.

Fun day on the links. Played after an outing. We had to wait until the course was clear. Starter was apologetic and did his best to get us out as soon as possible. Course was in good shape with the greens running true and fast. Played 5 different courses on my vacation and this was my favorite out of the bunch. All the courses were in the same price range making Bardmoor the best value of my trip. Will be back and have no problem recommending this course.
