TPC Tampa Bay can be as challenging as the golfer wants it to be. But be prepared to pay the price for taking the risks. Located just a 20-minute ride from the Tampa International Airport in Lutz, TPC Tampa Bay is open to the public seven days a week. A Bobby Weed design, TPC Tampa Bay is part of a network of courses owned and operated by PGA Tour Golf Course Properties. The fairways have subtle movement and weave through lakes and natural wetlands - 19 in all - and around strategic bunkers that number 81. The greens are large (averaging 6,400 square feet) and undulating, and most are open in the front, offering golfers the option of hitting run-up approach shots. There's a clubhouse and a fully stocked golf shop offering a complete line of equipment and apparel from the top names in golf to complement the course.

overpriced for extremely lousy conditions

DO NOT PLAY HERE. They were airating the fairways while we played so we had to wait for the mechanical equipment on most holes so pace of play was slowed down considerably by that. All greens had been airated and sanded heavily so were very uneven and rolling poorly and inconsistent between greens.

And NOT ONE PERSON in the pro shop mentioned to anyone that the course was being airated. Had the gall to charge full price for the poorly maintained greens. Couple of 4-somes walked off after 9 holes due to the conditions.

Besides airation, there were lots of places where the bermuda was dead and missing both on the greens and on the fairways. The conditions have deteriorated so much over the last year, its unreal. Was one of the best in the area last year and now it's probably one of the worst if not the total worst conditions of any course that I know of in the area, even worse than St. Leo which historically has had bad conditions.

And the course management has decided to charge full price and not tell anyone ahead of time about the conditions, which is really ripping people off in my opinion.

Restaurant is getting worse food as well, now spicy and not as well cooked.

Very disappointed in the course conditions

I have been playing TPC Tampa for over ten years and this is the worse condition I have seen the greens. A few of the greens had bare spots covered in fertilizer. The greens were recently punched, but that was not the cause of the conditions. This is a pure shock that these greens are in such bad shape. Hopefully this will be addressed.

Wet but fun

It was a stormy day... I started right after a storm slowed up and played by myself on an empty course. The course was very wet but playable. Lots of standing water but as the round went on it dissipated somewhat. The course was in excellent condition and I really enjoyed the layout. Several doglegs, water and deep bunkers. All in all a good time. I would love to play again in drier conditions but it’s such a nice course I won’t have it all to myself again. Definitely recommend this track!

Great experience

First time playing a TPC course and absolutely loved it. The staff was great. We were allowed to play as a twosome and the pace was great. Only complaint would be the maintenance staff not giving us courtesy. I had a fairway bunker shot and they kept mowing right next to me. The last five holes were shared with the bunker crew rarely allowing us any courtesy. That was the worst part of the round. Otherwise, I look forward to playing again.

Unfortunate day at TPC- Shoud be better! Nongolfers on course!

The course somehow allowed non-golfers on the course and they interfered with our round on 5 holes! I would never think a TPC course would allow two people in a cart taking pictures to get in the way of paying golfers. First, they approached us on the 7th hole driving toward us as we hit as if we were not there. Next they appeared on 4 more holes we were playing, once passing as we were putting out. On the next tee (12) they stood nearby, then asked if they could take out photos as we teed off. We asked that they go away. Finally, they flew a drown over us as we teed off on 13. Outrageous treatment on a course of this cost and standing. I let them know and was told they have a outing they are getting ready for. Who cares! Poorly managed.

jjfrenzy, We routinely host golf tournaments that make special requests – in this case, a drone proprietor requested to drive the course to get the feel for the property in advance of an event he was working later this week. We allowed the drone vendor access to the course with specific instructions – no drone flying and no interrupting play on the course. There is an assumed level of trust between business professionals that when instructions are given, they will be followed. Clearly in this case, instructions were not followed. We are sorry that this incident had such a negative impact on your overall experience. We hope you will give us the opportunity to change your initial perception as we strive daily to exceed our guests expectation. We take matters like these seriously so please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you would like to discuss your experience as I am always open for the opportunity to learn from experiences – good or bad. Thank you for your candid feedback.

Cordially,

Slow play

This course allows fivesome groups to play at prime 7:30am tee times. Play here if pace of play and your time isn't the least bit important to you. This is incomprehensible for a course of this supposed caliber.

Otherwise course is well designed, maintained and this staff both friendly and client focused. Restaurant was very good and a server named Rich excellent.

Slow play.

This is a well maintained, challenging and interesting course. The staff were invariably attentive, friendly and client focused on both the course and in their restaurant. This track has a storied history and would normally be afforded a good recommendation.

Unfortunately, pace of play isn't considered important here. We played here with a 7:30 am tee time only to find out the course management put out a fivesome before our twosome. It's not the courses fault that the arrogant and inconsiderate group didn't permit our twosome to play through but it is absolutely unconscionable that they allow fivesomes. Everyone else in the golfing world considers pace of play to be important.

Play here if your time isn't important to you.

Great Course and Awesome Conditions

This was my second time playing TPC Tampa Bay. The last time I played the course, which was a few years ago, the course was NOT in good condition and the overall experience was not good. However, today was totally different. The course conditions were excellent. The only thing which i did not think was great was the speed of the greens. The greens were a little shaggy and hence they were quite slow.

The overall experience was great. The practice facilities (range, chipping, putting, bunkers, etc.) were all very nice. The fairways were pristine and the rough was not too long but is starting to get thicker as the weather gets warmer.

I look forward to playing TPC Tampa Bay again next time I am in the area.

poor condition for a TPC

I played this course 5 years ago..It was in perfect condition and we paid more than 100$. But today, it was not in good shape....109 $ was too much for this course...Yesterday, I played Waterlefe in Bradenton for 49$ and it was in much better than the TPC...Usually, when you play a TPC and you spend more than 100$, you are looking for a top shape golf not a brown grass...Please change you green keeper...

Hi, Jacques8430434. Thank you for reviewing the course. Let us first start by apologizing for the poor experience you had during your visit. Your feedback about the course is important to us. We are working to get everything up to par. We have projects ongoing to recovery the fairways and greens. The current condition is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. We are going to escalate your feedback to our team so we can make improvements before your next game. We will continue to work towards an excellent experience by using your comment for guidance. Thank you for playing TPC Tampa Bay, we hope to see you again soon.

Solid. Little pricey though.

On vacation in Tampa and figured I would try the flagship tpc. Course in good condition. Greens rolling fast. Nice scenery. Little steep on price but as a splurge it was worth it. If I lived down here I would look for better value.
