BYE BYE NORTHDALE
This used to be my go to course. Was always a good value for the condition but unfortunately can no longer say that. I understand weather played a factor but this course looked horrible today. Not to mention one of the holes literally didn’t have a fairway cut. My playing partner and I both hit dead center “fairway” and still had to walk around for 5 minutes looking in the deep grass to find the ball. This course seems to have gone down hill since being sold. Looks like I will be finding a new home course
Worst course in Tampa
This is without a doubt the worst course in Tampa. New owner has let this course fall apart. Woke up and decided since previous groups drove off cart path on cart path only day everyone would walk from then on. This course has poor tee boxes, worse fairways and is the wettest course ever made. I would pay 100 dollars and play TPC tampa before I paid 3 dollars to play this course. If I could I would give it 0 stars.
Obviously Not at it's Best!!!
The course was in poor condition as are the properties around most of the course. Lots of rain has not helped the badly deteriorating cart paths. The course doesn't seem to have very good drainage and because of that the rough was so shaggy that you could lose a ball six inches off the fairway. It was cart paths only for the same reason and I would probably never play the course again. The fairways and greens were ok but both needed some attention that it seems they had not gotten for too long.
The clubhouse staff was good Greens were ok They need to mow the lawn, 1 foot off the fairway and the grass is 8 inches long in a lot of spots. Not fun
Front was good. Back was cart path as lots of water...
But still playable..
Nice Fairways, penal rough
Course has plenty of grass but rough is penal. Greens are in good shape and putt true but on the slow side.
The course was very wet in spots due to rain the previous day....it made playing out of the rough very challenging....it was best to keep the ball in the fairway, which were just fine as were the greens...A fun course and good value ...I will return.....
Personally moderately challenging and good layout. However the roughs are very thick and ungroomed. I’d recommend more attention to the rough areas because we difficulty finding and losing golf balls.
Enjoyable layout, but course conditions are just OK. Lots of soggy areas. The area between the #15 green and the #16 tee box was flooded out. Greens are still recovering from recent aeration - bumpy and slow. Sign on the pro shop says 2 persons per cart - no sure that complies with CDC guidelines. I was a single, so it didn't apply, but could have been an issue.
New Ownership Turned it Around
The new ownership has really turned this place around. Great layout and the conditions have improved significantly over the past 6 months.
greens fee? horrible greens
On a Saturday showed up for some late afternoon golf, first hole looking great, fairway in good condition even in the florida heat. however, the greens were aerated and it was impossible to putt which is 60% of the game, chips were plugging in holes on the greens. very disappointed, staff should be coached to give golfers a heads up before paying for a round “hey you can’t putt today greens are under work” when i questioned it all staff said was “well it’s discounted” same rate next saturday and the one after. very disappointing day of golf.
Booked via the GolfNow app, which was seamless. When we got to the course today, we were told that the greens had been aerated. This was not listed on the GolfNow app, but I don't blame GolfNow. A short time later, we were told by the beer cart employee that the club had recently been sold and that the liquor license was not transferred to the new owners. So there would be no beer sold on the course. We still had a good time but I believe that this information should have been disclosed prior to booking.
Aeration of Greens
The greens were just aerated less than one week and golf course still change full price. I asked for discount and was told manager is on leave and it was his decision to charge full price
Great Layout, Poor Conditions
I really wish courses or golf now would list when courses are getting treatment. I understand it’s that time of year in Florida and heavy rains occur everyday, but we were very disappointed when we showed up to see the greens being aerated. Greens were as bumpy as a gravel driveway. I’d suggest waiting a few weeks before booking here.
Very Forgettable Round
Had no idea front nine was closed for aerification; they could have easily have told us that when we called prior to leaving for course. We were told to play back nine twice. What a negative experience, the greens on back nine were punched the day before and lacked sand and were unputtable. The restaurant was closed for renovations and the course was overgrown and saturated...fairway tee shots plugged and balls in rough were almost impossible to find. Oh yes, the maintenance crew was cutting grass at 10:30, directly in front of us while teeing off, without a care. Very bad experience for my beginner wife. We quite after 7 holes and won't be back.
Terrible course conditions
I played this course today for the first time, it was terrible! The greens where like been in Clearwater beach, the course was in a shocking condition. I highly recommend you never go to this course. I will not go back here.
