Rating 71.6
Type Public
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.

Enjoyable Round of Golf

Had a Great Round of Golf. Played with an older couple, very friendly. Course layout is nice, pace of play was great. We were able to Tee off as soon as we were ready. BUT .... the Course needs a lil ... no ... need a lot of love. Greens were horrendous. I have played there b4 and greens were okay, not the case this round. All and all a nice course when the grounds keeper return. LOL ... Recommended if you get a deal on Golf Now ... But Full Price, stay away until the greens are repaired ....

Sandy Green's

I liked the layout of this course but the greens were nothing but dirt. The tee boxes were not in good shape either. Most of the fairways were in decent shape but a few were very rough. When I arrived there was no one in the golf shop and I had to find someone in the restaurant. The lady was very nice. When I was finished I started back in to the golf shop and found it locked before 4:00 .

The Staff were extremely friendly and helpful!!! I really liked the layout of the course and played one of my best rounds in years. Only issues: course is not in good shape, many bare patches even in fairways. also when I made the turn at 10 two groups of 5 were suddenly on the hole ahead of me. The first group let me play through but the second one which were still only on the next tee wouldn't allow me to go through even though the par 5 they were on was wide open.

This course has an enjoyable layout

Golf course fairways are in pretty rough shape. Half the time hitting off dirt. Some greens were in good shape.

Fairways suffering

Greens are true and quick. Tees are in good shape. Unfortunately, either due to the dry weather, the change of ownership or a combination of both, the fairways are extremely dry and getting worse in the last 2 months. I like the layout of this course. It has a good variety of holes but fairways need grass to really enjoy a round.

Disappointed

This must be a 55+community 99% of those playing were over 68+. Very slow day. We started at 11:15 and at 2:30 we finished the 9th hole to which we left. Super slow, crowded. The grounds/fairways were nothing like the pictures - greens were so-so. It was a 60 minute drive for us, we wanted to explore a different course - never again. A couple par 4's I thought were par 3's. Thank you for having us play your course.
