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.

Friendly staff, great layout, many holes with width and angles rewarding strategic choices. Greens in great shape with challenging reads. Overall conditions pretty goid. Pac3 of play slow with two foursomes ahead of us reading putts forever. That said we finished in 4:15.

The TPC course has a great lay out and great twilight rates for a TPC course. The only thing I didn’t like about it when I played was the fact that the greens were being worked on (maintenance) and no one mentioned that when I booked it or when I checked in. Otherwise over all the course was in great shape and would love to play again when the greens are not under maintenance.

Narrow, lots of bunkers, water. But fun. Thought the fairways weren't' in great shape (some holes); greens were fine. Definitely a good course to play if you are looking for a toughie. I'm not that good (shoot upper 90s) but enjoyed the challenge.

The first impression is it’s run down from where it might have been a while back. The practice area was trash no grass. The tee boxes trash no grass The greens were great the fairway good but not up to TPC standards I am used to I have played 3 other tpc courses in Texas Vegas and Sawgrass this place is a really good public course for 45-60 bucks but not 130.

Then the cart service girl overcharged me twice Just a bad experience all the way around.

Nice course, nice layout, some risk / reward opportunities. True Greens. Has a short game practice area.

Staff friendly, pro shop was well done and maintained. Bag drop and pickup staff very friendly.

Downside was primarily that it did not meet my 'expectations' of a TPC caliber course. Being a TPC course, I would have expected better-

Examples:

- Driving range was beat up, crabgrass, and poorly maintained

- Course had plenty of tree foliage (needles, leaves, buds, etc) in the first cut and rough area, looked like it was not blown off in many days.

- Some of the cup holes were beat up / brown around the area (like cup not moved in days).

- Some of the tee areas were beat up.

While a nice course to play, and if in the Tampa area, a good one to play and pick, yet there are better courses, and better maintained, for similar greens fees in the area.

Played Green Tees in gorgeous weather conditions. Fairways, greens and bunkers were very good. Greens were large and undulating, providing challenge with fast and true surfaces. Pace...good, done in 4hrs. Tee boxes (green tees) could use work...keeping my review from 5’s. TPC course should require decent strikes from tee boxes, and TPC Tampa does not shy from this expectation. Stay in fairways!

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.
