Rating 74.8

Lake Jovita Golf & Country Club offers two championship courses, the North and the South. Both courses sprawl across a verdant landscape covered with mature oaks, lakes, and ponds. The terrain is unusually hilly for Florida. Like the South Course, the North Course is undulating with a lot of movement but it has even greater elevation changes than the South, which provides scenic views of the surrounding community. On a clear day, golfers can see at least five miles to the northeast from the second tee. The North has a more modern layout that plays a little bit longer. Although the golf courses are nestled amongst rolling hills, Lake Jovita is situated just 30 minutes north of Tampa. The unique hilliness of the courses and their convenient location have made them some of Florida's must-play courses.

Great fun.

Love this place. Greens are big, fast, and tricky. Well maintained, bunkers included. A little off the beaten path but well worth the effort.

Stay Away

No carts available for our tee time so we had to wait past our tee time. And we did not finish because the course was way overbooked! Slow slow slow play!

Love Lake Jovita

After playing Lake Jovita North Course & totally enjoying it, we went back today and played the South Course. We liked the South Course even better than the North! It's in EXCELLENT condition throughout. The layout is interesting, challenging, and fun. Practice facilities are conveniently located. Staff couldn't be more friendly. Can't say enough positive about the Lake Jovita South Course. Although it's an hour's drive from our winter home, it's well worth the drive. I highly encourage giving either the North or South Course a try.

Both courses at Lake Jovita are great

Had a terrible foursome in front of us with 2.5 open holes. Course in nice shape. Best courses close to Dade City.

Great course / accommodating staff

My wife and I had the pleasure of playing the North course today. We were scheduled to play the south course, but needed to move up our tee time to accommodate a change in flights. The staff (especially Anthony!) were most helpful! We enjoyed the course Very much and will return!

Great Course!

This was my first time at Lake Jovita and I very much enjoyed the round. Although I had not played it before, there were only a couple of holes where I was puzzled as to where to go off of the tee. It was a challenging but fair course and worth the price. My surprise for the day was the friendliness of the staff both in the pro shop and the starter. Very personable! Will definitely be going to this course frequently on my return visits.

North Course

This was by far the best course I’ve played this year. The conditions were PERFECT. Fairways and greens were in spectacular shape. I’d definitely would recommend the North course over the South!!
