Designed by Lloyd Clifton, Westchase winds through acres of lakes, conservation areas and forest. It offers manicured greens surrounded by natural wetlands, wooden bridges and bulkheads. With its 9,500 sq. ft. clubhouse, full-service dining room, and fully stocked pro shop, Westchase offers a country club atmosphere along with first-class service. The golf club has established itself as one of Tampa Bay's best upscale golf facilities. The front nine meander through an impressive pine forest. The back nine -- which is demanding on the tee shot -- features lakes, wetlands and cypress. Strategically placed bunkers, more sparkling lakes and stands of cypress, oak, palmetto and pine frame the fairways and greens. Signature Hole No. 3, at 212 yards from the back tee, is all you can handle -- It's a Par 3 all-carry over water from the back tee!

My first outing at Westchase and man, they set the bar high. The pro-shop is picturesque, the starter (George) couldn’t have been nicer, and the range for $6 is all on water! The course was beautiful, parts feel as though you’re in Jurassic Park, with thick woods and classic bridges. Greens were in great condition, tee boxes were sufficient, and the cart girls were cute. Can’t ask for more. My only complaint is nearly unavoidable, but the course was absolutely soaked. Everywhere. Again, it rained the day before, but I fear the draining system may not be up to snuff. I will definitely be back though!

Friendly staff. OK layout. Lots of water and wetlands in play, especially on the front. Several forced carries, too. Not for me. To make matters worse the course received 4" of rain the night before making the track a soggy mess. As you can imagine no roll and lots of plugged balls. Don't bother playing here if it has rained a lot. The greens were true, rolling around 8 to 9. I'm OK with that. Fast greens are no fun.

Enjoyed my round. Challenging course. Greens were punched 2 weeks ago and you can still see the marks. They rolled well, but speed was not consistant from green to green. Some tee boxes were cut nice and tighter than most courses which help with the numerous iron tee shots. Most tee boxes were fairly flat and not tilted like many other courses. Most holes are 380ish...kinda boring after a while. Good value with a coupon or hot deal.

Not my first time here but was my first time using golfnow. Greens we're punched probably two weeks ago I would say so they are a little slow but roll true. Course is in fantastic shape, still showing spring conditions so if you can handle the heat, it's a no brainer at these prices.

While not extremely long, this course demands you make solid tee shots and accurate approaches. While landing areas for tee shots (if you hit the right club) are fairly generous, errant shots can quickly find trouble. Wooded areas are thick, plenty of water also comes into play. Local knowledge a plus as you can't just take the driver to every par 4 or 5 and let it fly. You can score on this course if you're on target but it will cost you dearly if you're not. Tee boxes were good, fairways were excellent, and while the greens had been aerated that week, they still rolled pretty well. A very enjoyable round that was only marred by my own poor accuracy.

Early tee time on Sunday and course was full. Finished round in about 4hrs and told by pro shop that slow groups will be asked to speed up to keep pace. Course is in fantastic shape but is rather narrow with quite a bit of water but definitely manageable. This is a course I would play again without hesitation.

Booked tee time on Golf Now for 11:15. I arrived at 10:15 and dropped bags at bag drop and went into clubhouse to check in. Told them I had an 11:15 and they said they did not have me. I showed them the GN reservation and he said "We cancelled our contract with GN and our systems don't sink so I don't have you down." He said he could get us out later. He totally had an attitude as though it was my problem and in no way, shape or form his problem. I could have stayed and taken the later tee time he offered but with the attitude he gave there was no chance he was getting a dime from me. There are too many courses in the area for that.

As a side note, the guys at the bag drop could not have been any nicer or more apologetic for the inside guy. Maybe they have the wrong guys in the wrong positions!

Really enjoyed my time on the course. Fabulous day but started getting blown out later in the afternoon. My first time on this course was very good and will come back again soon. The greens were relatively fast but had good success. The fairways were in good shape overall. The value was exceptional for this time of year. I played 6 over so I was very pleased overall.

I've been wanting to play here because I heard so much about it, but I wasn't impressed. The staff was friendly, the course layout was ok, the greens, fairways and tee boxes were okay. I can't really say I was impressed with anything in particular about the course, then again I have nothing negative to say either. I live in the Ruskin area so now I know how the course is, I may never return. There are too many just as good courses closer.
