Scotland Yards Golf Club, as its name implies, has a traditional links-style layout that is reminiscent of the traditional links courses of England and Scotland. It offers the experience of classic Scottish golf with the convenient of being only 20 miles north of Tampa. The golf course tumbles across the gently rolling hills of west central Florida. The course plays long and it features wildly undulating greens that require tremendous accuracy. True to its links nature, there is little water but there are plenty of pot bunkers treacherously lurking throughout. The signature hole is the par-5 second. At 554 yards, it is the longest hole on the course and it is only rarely reached in two. The demanding third shot is uphill to a green that is fiercely guarded in front by two massive mounds and pot bunkers.

Not sure what happen. This used to be a decent course for the money but this time the greens where the worst I’ve ever seen. The fairways where horrible as well. Will not be going there for awhile if we ever do.

Got a good price at the yard. Staff was friendly and we got right out. Twosome let us play through right on the first tee, which was a great sign. Fairways were a bit thin, greens were solid, a little slow but very puttable. Actually had sand in the traps. Good value and great pace, just over three hours made for a fun day.

The course was in good shape, greens were a little slow. Layout was ok. Not a lot of water so nice for less experienced golfer. The staff were very accommodating. Golfed with a couple of old retires who were knowledgeable of the course and friendly. Would play again.

It has not even rained yet the course was soaked from the irrigation being ran too long. Made the greens not play like they read. Very nice looking club house but it is not a course I'd play again. It was not really a well laid out course either. Lastly it was just not really worth the money for the course. I'd skip if you had other options.

For the price, I expected way better fairway conditions. There was barely any grass and definitely has gone untreated for quite awhile. They also had someone mowing at 8-8:30am, one of the busiest times of a any day, but also on a Friday?

The course layout? What layout? I had to drive 1/4 of a mile to get to the first tee and it crosses the 18th, confusing to say the least.

This course could be a very good course if better taken care of and the layout changed , was a decent challenge non the less.

The greens were in fairly good condition but not consistent. Some of the greens had been mowed but not all. The fairways were not defined and had very little turf.

First time and probably not again till the grass grows on the fairways. No over seeding on the fairways and they look pretty bad. Greens were in great shape except for two. Definitely a local members course. Quite a few blind tee shots and the par fives were a challenge.

Overall, worth the hot deal price.

3rd time we’ve been here and from the greeting you could tell golf now customers not really welcomed. As we checked in we were told without hesitation, “you’re playing with 2 other people and everyone is teeing off 10 I’ll let you know when you can get your cart.” And basically we were just left standing there to I guess go putt or dare we ask if there was a range. After looking down number 10 and seeing literally 7 groups between the tee and green we knew it would be a 5 hour plus round, course is too small to House that many groups. That said we opted to forfeit our round not only because of what would have been a ridiculously slow day but the guy in the pro shop just rubbed us the wrong way. We won’t be going back and I’ll make sure anyone who asks spends their money elsewhere.

I find that extremely hard to believe, I use golfnow every time I play there and have always been treated great. The 10th hole is a straight away 300 yard par 4. To say there could be 7 groups on that hole is nothing but exaggeration.
