Lake Jovita Golf & Country Club - South Course
Although it is tucked away among rolling green hills and mature oaks, Lake Jovita Country Golf & Country Club is conveniently less than 30 minutes north of Tampa. The club offers two championship golf courses, the North and the South. The South Course, the original track at Lake Jovita, has a more traditional design than the other course. It features generous fairways and velvety-smooth greens. The layout weaves through lakes and ponds that into play on several holes. The course was built to fully utilize the hilly terrain, incorporating a variety of elevation changes throughout. The par-5 11th hole even features a 94-foot drop from tee to green, which is the largest natural elevation change in the entire state. It is one of Florida's "must-play" courses

Hole 10 green on the South course Photo submitted by bvmagic on 05/30/2016
Lines on the greens after being punched. Difficult to putt with these grabbing the ball as it rolled into them. Photo submitted by bvmagic on 05/30/2016
Great course and in great shape
The greens were very smooth and fast. Enjoyed a beautiful fall day on the course!
Love this course
Good condition. They’re working on the bunkers to get them back in shape after all our heavy rain.
Course is in great shape after all the rain we’ve had. Bunkers we’re washed out or holding water. But greens and fairways were nice.
I have played this course many times. I love the layout. The good news is the greens are good. The bad news is the rest of the golf course is in tough shape. The fairways are wet and being seeded but they need it because there isn’t a lot of grass . The bunkers are in horrible shape ...... virtually unplayable except for the fact that right now you can lift , clean and place. Lastly, they are currently fertilizing the entire course so it smells like a ripe barnyard....... which is great when the feels like temperature is north of 100 degrees. Good luck !
It was wet so it played extremely long!
Greens were very good! True rolls and held a correctly struck approach! A big challenge to your game from all tees!
The one thing that was a negative was most bunkers were either flooded with water and you would lose the ball or not playable! Overall will return again and it’s worth the price!
Ps- jump on the tips if you want to see were your game is as a single digit hdcp! It’s a beast!!
Played the South Course for the first time and very impressed with the layout. Typical summer rain has taken it’s toll. The bunkers were unplayable. Many of the green side traps were full of water so it made it very difficult not only to play but find your ball. Considering the wet conditions we had a great time. I can only imagine this course dry and playing fast! Whoa!
