Rating 72.4

The beautifully manicured, par-72 Renaissance Golf Course features two distinctive nines. The front nine has an open links feel to it with wide fairways and greens that will accept bump-and-run approach shots. The back nine requires more accuracy from tee to green as it meanders through a large conservation area. Water comes into play on every hole on the inward nine on this course designed by Chip Powell. Most fairways are lined with stately pines and ancient oaks. The greens at the Renaissance Golf Club are a pleasure to putt. These TifEagle Bermuda grass putting surfaces are state-of-the-art and roll fast.

No email about canceling

This would have been our 2nd time, but was cancelled close to tee time, with no warning or email about
It. (GOLFNOW)
Luckily we called just before our 40 min ride to the course and the generic tee time operator said the course
was closed. No # for the pro shop available. (Dumb)

Thumbs up for the course, thumbs down for GolfNow.

Great day at Club Ren!

The fairways and greens are in great shape. We played in about 3 and a half hours, which was great. We love the course... we played it last fall, and now that the rates are starting to drop, I'm sure we'll play it again a few times in the next couple of months.

Fantastic day in the links

Played the course today with a threesome visiting from Buffalo. Had a great day with good guys on a wonderfully manicured course. Every tee box, fairway and green was in excellent condition. Many courses In the area have thin fairways with spotted bear patches this time of year or a green or two with blemishes or inconsistencies. Club Renaissance was A-1 tee to green on all 18. The drive from St Pete was well worth it and I’ll be back next time with friends!

Had Fun

Been almost a decade since playing here . Lots of new homes.
Lay out the same though and pleasurable course.
Conditions were wonderful and greens rolled true.
Only issue was a foursome few groups ahead road blocking the whole course creating a four hole gap and multiple back ups.
The random twosome playing with us quit after 9 because of pace.
My friend and I have committed to returning but perhaps earlier in the day for a better pace experience.

Beautiful course

Good value for your money. Every hole is different and depending on your tees, level of difficulty. One of the better ones in the area. Have played the course 4 times in the last two weeks and will play it again.

Absolute gem

First time playing here and went out as 2 before 8am. Tee boxes, fairways, and rough were all nice and lush. Greens were still pretty wet from the morning moisture and they rolled fast!! Staff were all extremely nice and course layout is fun with 2 nice long par 3 carries that make it worth the trip alone. A+ value.

Fun course. Great condition. Unique Saturday format

Course was in great shape, tee to green.

Some of the better greens I have been on this time of year. Putts rolled a little slow but true.

On Saturday they have a single morning tee time (834 am) and do a shotgun start. Never heard of that outside of tournaments. To my surprise, pace of play was spot on and we finished on time (just over 4hrs), even with an extremely loaded course. Never felt rushed or that we had to wait too long for tee shots/shots to the green.

Will play here again.
