Fairways were horrible. Most of course under water. Lost 4 balls due to balls constantly plugging
Great place close to the city
Greens really surprised us... in a good way. Smooth roll and good pace. The rest of the course was so so. Good for a public course I suppose.
The layout of the course is interesting and fun- tough finishing 5 holes. Watch out cause those few ate my lunch- don’t go for 15 in two... it’s a trap. Seventeen is probably the shortest par 4 and the hardest off the tee. Take some extra time on each shot as you close out the back nine and you’ll be glad.
Zero beverage cart. Just a few waters coolers on the course and we found the most important one empty at 3pm.
No effort by the staff to pair people up so the course was covered by odd groupings of singles up to threes ones. We saw very few foursomes and the pace of play suffered as a result of that.
For $27 on a Saturday... I’d do it again!
A Varied Layout, Fun to Play
The layout of the course varied from fairly forgiving fairways with narrow ditches on many holes, to some challenging fairways with water in play. In particular, all holes from 14 onward were holes with water in play, making course management on those holes very important.
The greens were nicely shaped like flat domes with gentle slopes. Their grass was in very good condition, putts were rolling true.
Fairways were in average condition, the greens were in much better condition.
Overall a fun course to play.
The course has a good mix of short through long holes and the greens were in very good condition. The fairway and rough could use a little work, but we also played half the round in the rain. For my first time out there, I thought the course was worth the money and I would return again.
Played here about two months ago and the course was in great shape. Not a overly tough course but a good to walk and the greens/fairways were in great shape. Not the case yesterday. Grass is gone on the fairways and the greens. Greens rolled really fast (because the grass isn't growing). Tees were in bad shape also. I hope they get it back to the shape it was in.
Decent Public Course
Rocky Point isn't flashy, but its proximity to the airport is a positive as you can go from the plane to the first tee in fifteen minutes. It's a public course with a simple layout and typical public course conditions. $25 for twilight play is pretty fair. Nothing to write home about.
The course layout is really good. The staff is friendly! The only problem is the greens are in rough shape. and by rough I mean if other golfers would fix their ball marks it would be a lot better. You can tell the crew puts some love into the course but it's up to us golfers to fix our marks! I'll be back for sure.
Back nine is closed - totally being redone. Front nine is very slow - greens need work and many patches where a weed wacker would come in handy. When they finish the back nine, they will do the front nine. Do not play at any price for now...
challenge, good value
challenging layout, lots of water holes, some tight drives & approach shots, good greens, good grill room, slow round very busy course, can be soggy after rain, good value for $30
The best of the Tampa Sports Authority courses
Really good layout with some challenge but very fair design. I really enjoyed my round and look forward to playing again one day.
