Tampa Palms Golf & Country Club features a scenic and environmentally friendly golf course designed by Arthur Hills. Situated in the heart of New Tampa, the golf course is a picturesque getaway. There are many challenging features to test players of all skill levels, including water hazards that come into play on ten holes and strategically placed bunkers throughout. Tampa Palms Golf & Country Club's signature hole is the par-3 17th, which requires a tee shot over an expansive body of water to a green that is protected by two bunkers on the left side. In addition to the golf course, Tampa Palms also offers a driving range and a putting green for golfers to use.

Played as a guest

Just played this course 2 days ago and I was pleasantly surprised. The staff were courteous and friendly. The Practice areas were nice also. The course itself was beautiful. Being in a crowded part of Tampa, while you're out there on the course you wouldn't know it. Some houses but not as many as you would usually see on a course in the middle of Tampa. The fairways were plush and it was like hitting off a mat, the greens rolled true and were about a 10.5. Holes were challenging but not impossible, lots of fairways you won't need your driver. Great views and a great course, a must play!

Home Club

I joined here a few months back and really enjoy this course and the facilities offered. As a competitive player who has the privilege to play some top notch courses, my standards are fairly high. Tampa Palms has definitely met my expectations. The course layout is difficult and for an errant power hitter, it likely plays difficult than the 73.6 rating (the Golf Advisor rating is inaccurate). The greens are pretty small, so ball-striking is at a premium. The greens always roll very true (usually close to a 10 on the stimp) and are pretty close to tour quality. With the nearly all the wooded areas adjacent to the fairways being swamp, it's imperative to keep your ball in play off the tee as there is no way you'll be playing out of the woods. As for the staff, the cart staff is great and very helpful. They are exceedingly polite and thoughtful in getting you prepared for your tee time. The pro-shop staff (particularly the 3 professionals), on the other hand, are relatively brief and impersonal. Simply put, they are very short and seemingly not concerned with building rapport with the members and guests.
