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.

They had just covered the greens with sand without any notification. Staff was pretentious and thought they were more worthy than then people playing golf here. I was looking to buy four golf shirts but the pro shop closes at 530pm? Knocked on the door as three staff members were still in there but they just looked at me and just continued to talk amongst themselves.

It is a great course . But it is really tough. In the last three years I have shot in the nineties twice and both times were here. Very demanding off tee and if you veer off the fairway you are usually in trouble. Greens roll nice and despite it kicking my butt I will probably try it again.

TPC Tampa is a spectacular course, magnificently maintained, with helpful, professional staff who go out of their way to help make your round memorable. I play many courses in the area, several of which are excellent. But TPC Tampa is my favorite course. You can't speak highly enough of their staff from the Pro Shop to the Cart Attendants to the Maintenance Crew and the Restaurant/Bar Personnel, just a top notch place.

This was my first time playing this course. The weather was VERY cold in the morning. The greens on the course are very challenging. There are lots of subtle breaks, undulations, slopes and ridges that make the greens very challenging. The greens are very large so even when you are on the green, you still have a stiff challenge to get in the hole in two putts. There are also lots of raised greens which adds another challenge. The fairways and rough were dormant, as to be expected in January. Overall, the course is very nicely kept and very nice. The price of $160 was pretty steep for the course. It is not a $160 dollar course. It is around a $100 course, but not a $160 course, especially for the weather being so cold and uncomfortable in the morning as it was the morning I played.

The practice area at the TPC Tampa Bay was great. Nice driving range as well as chipping area, and overall nice practice area.

This has been on my list to play for a while, not only was the course everything I expected - the staff exceeded all expectations with the level of friendliness and professionalism. From checking in to grabbing food after, it was a pleasure and I will always come back here each time I’m in Tampa! Shout out to the starter Mark Nelson, after chatting with him for a bit is when I knew how great this place is. You can tell everyone that works there enjoys it. Thanks again!

I am an eight handicap. I played the white tees and even from there this course was way too difficult for my game. Glad I played it but will not subject my ego to that humiliation again.

A good layout in nice condition. The greens were topdressed but very smooth and fast enough so your putts would roll out properly. The green complexes sit on the earth nicely without looking artificial or tricked up and they have good contours to keep you focused and interested. The course is well bunkered and there's plenty enough water to shape your shots around.

Overall, a nice test of your golf.

picked up a hot deal mid day and figured why not check it out... got sent out as a single and didn’t catch another group until the back 9.. not too shabby for a tuesday afternoon. greens did have some rough spots and lots of dead spots due to marks not being repaired but all rolled very true. Overall thought the course was in great shape and very challenging from the blue tees. would absolutely play again
