Good Course

It's a decent be course. It could definitely use some TLC. It is wide open which is great for inexperienced golfers.

been a while

It has been over a decade since I've Played Apollo Beach.
Used to several times a month.
I got a great deal on Golf now and thought lets go.
I was paired up with a great group of gentlemen.
Some of the holes came back to me on how to get around but the free yardage book was a great help.
Greens rolled true and were in OK shape over the course.
I was lucky enough to only hit one bunker because several if not all looked suspect.
Fairways and approach areas were spotty and wet even though there has been no real rain in weeks.
If too wet just find nearest relief.
I used to love this track and may venture up again if time permits.
Bunker replenishment and bridge and cart path repairs are expensive and I hope they are able to find the funds.
Orinthologists would love the abundance and variance of species on most every hole.
Thank You for Having me

I'll be back

This was my first time to play here on a recommendation of another golfer and I wasn't disappointed. Yes there were some weak spots on the greens and the sand bunkers were so-so but not enough to discourage coming back. The staff were friendly enough and the restaurant was very limited on available food items so don't expect much more than a hotdog or sandwich. Overall the course was fun to play and I'll be back.

Shouldn’t be open

I have played this course a few times this year. The last time I payed they should not have been open. Back nine was closed and 2 holes on the front were shortened to a par 3. That’s the kind of stuff they should tell you before taking your money.

Felt misled

After checking in and getting cart we were told that the course was reversed (10th tee to start) due to a bridge failure. Not too bad but now the 1st was the tenth and the tee box was moved all the way down the fairway to about 180yds out. They could have simply redirected traffic or instructed players to wait until the tee was clear before approaching.
The fairway on the 9th (our 18th) was non existent. It looked as though a bulldozer had driven all over it. Again, not forewarned so the hole played terribly.
The greens were true, but REALLY slow. So many putts came up short it was frustrating. And the greens had fringes that were 10 feet wide. Unfortunately all the members parked their cart on these fringes. How ridiculous !!!!
Not worth the effort of driving there and finding this "back street" club.

What great shape the greens are in!

With the rain we've had we were concerned, but the course is in great shape and the greens are putting very true to the hole.
Summer rates are the best value around as well.

Great Florida Public Course

I fly to Florida several times a year to visit family and play golf. Many public courses in Florida seem to do just enough maintenance to just survive. Apollo Beach was a fantastic surprise. Course was in great condition. Greens were consistent and roll was true. Staff was friendly, even greenskeepers pulled machines out of way and waved as we passed. Definitely will be returning to play soon. Best public course I’ve played in years.

Nice layout, conditions inconsistent

I’ve played this course several times and decided to give it a chance again, only because I got a hot deal on GolfNow for $22. For the full price this course charges ($40-$50), I would never play here. The fairways are patchy and the bunkers are never raked after rain, leaving hard and packed mud. Drainage on the course is also terrible, which could lead to a ball sitting in a puddle in or near the fairway. When I played yesterday, the greens were being grown out after aeration and were incredibly slow. When cut, the greens could be very nice. It was just frustrating to play on such a long cut, as it made putts roll very bumpy. Layout is great, but course conditions and price are what hold this course back from being good value.

Pretty good for the price

Overall, course was pretty challenging even with some short holes. Ample amounts of sand and water in strategic places. Greens in good shape.
First five holes we were overrun with mosquitoes. BRING A BUG REPELLENT!

Slow play

Would be nice to have a ranger out there to push slow players. Course was is nice shape especially the greens. Fairways tended to have a lot of dollar weed on them. A nice layout for one of the oldest courses in the area.
