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.

Challenging but fun

Solid track-friendly staff and the food in the grill was quite good. Good layout with a lot of bunkers, quirky green complexes and in good overall condition. Play the tees recommended on the card and by the starter as it’s sneaky long. Would definitely return.

Really disappointed , I paid $180 and went to the range hoping to work on my swing, first time out for the season. They actually have the ropes on the down slope part of the range . So, it was impossible to use any club. The staff was great . The course was average at best. Will not play that course again

Second time around

Our golf group came to the Tampa area from the frozen tundra. We had played the TPC several years ago and at that time was not impressed with the conditions of the course. We thought we'd give it another try. The TPC staff is top-notch and the pace of play was good. The greens were in good condition and the speed was acceptable. The tee boxes, and the tees at the practice range really showed how much play the course gets. I would recommend this course if you can get a discount rate, but at the normal rate there are better options in the area.

Would have been a great round if Weather Co-operated!!

Beautiful golf course that is extremely well maintained. Tee boxes, fairways, bunkers were impeccable and greens were firm and fast. Very challenging course with lots of water, so bring extra balls. Pace of play was quick as we encountered severe weather on the back nine, but played through. Water did accumulate on the greens forcing us to accept a two putt concession. No marshals or beverage cart service (as I think they were anticipating the bad weather). Unfortunately, we did not have time to take advantage of the complimentary driving range nor the ambiance of the TPC setting.

Always great to play TPC Tampa

I really enjoy playing here when I get the chance. The course is always in great condition, the staff is always very friendly, and the food is excellent. Really miss having the PGA Tournament that used to come through once a year, wish they could get that back.

Over Priced

It’s a beautiful course and in great shape but so over priced. I’d rather spend a few extra dollars and play Streamsong. For less than half the price Lake Jovita is just as nice, also for less money play Sourhern Hills Plantation, it’s a Pete Dye course and in my opinion much better. it just angers me that they count on people paying because they think it’s a TPC and it’s not part of The Players Club network anymore they only got to keep the TPC branding under a licensing agreement. Not to mention the guys in pro shop are very arrogant. Too many options in the area that doesn’t charge a fortune like this place.

Challenging & Fun!

In every off the better TPC layouts I’ve played nationwide. Mid-week so Pace’s of play wasn’t an issue. Felt like we had the whole course to ourselves. Starter (Mark) was super friendly & knowledgeable. Cart girl (Madi) was also very personable & made us feel at home while we visited. Bring a few extra balls as the course is tight in some areas (Mark warmed us) but some water is not in your sight lines.

Not worth the price of a Hot Deal

We are out of state visitors and played several courses in the area in the days leading up. We were excited about playing a TPC course and hoped we were saving the best course for last. We were very wrong!! We paid almost $100 each by capturing a Hot Deal. We arrived a little early to enjoy the experience. The course had no carts available for us or for that matter, anyone arriving at the time. We walked back and forth to the driving range multiple times. For an expected premier course, the driving range and putting greens were terrible!! As for the course, it was just average. As mentioned, we had played other courses a little south that were 2-3 times better for much less money. Here, you are paying for 3 letters....TPC. Take your money and your time someplace else!!!

Great layout but unkept

Course layout is good and has some nice holes framed with trees and bunkers. However, for the cost of the course, it is not worth it. Greens were worst greens I have played on this trip comparing to 9 other courses. They were terribly slow and looked like they had not been cut or rolled for a while. And talking to a staff member, that person said that the members have been complaining about the condition of the greens and it is the general consensus of what guests have said. Overall, it is not worth a second visit until that gets under control.

It's okay

I've played the course a few times over the past few years and I have to admit the course is always in decent condition, today the greens had sand on them which made the greens roll inconsistent. Something I wish they had let me know while booking. Everyone was helpful and pleasant, the young man behind the bar Chandle, lost a sale today because of his lack of paying attention. The carts having GPS is very helpful if you're playing the course for the first time. Overall I would definitely recommend the course, just inquire about the greens before playing.

Demanding & Beautiful Golf Course

I loved this golf course . It simply has a great feel to the entire layout . I didn’t play particularly well the day I played TPC TAMPA , but thoroughly enjoyed the course. It’s well manicured , challenging , fair . Visually it rang my bell . I highly recommend this golf course if you’re in the Tampa area
