Private club, got on through reciprocation with my home club. Friendly and accommodating staff. Course conditions - Tee boxes, greens, fairways were very green and in good shape. Some of the rough areas and heavy cart traffic areas were distressed, but generally were not playable area's anyhow. Sucker for Fazio design. Only quirk is back to back par 5's on front and back to back par 3's on back. But overall, a favorite when in the area.

I have played this course 3 times. Its one of my favorites in the Tampa bay area. For me its a challenging course. The greens are fast and hard to read. It plays long from the tips. The straight forward Par 4's are long and the shorter ones are narrow with lots off trouble. The course is always in great shape and the clubhouse and mens locker room is the best around. If you can get on this course i would highly recommend it. A classic Tom Fazio design, you won't be disappointed.

Happy Golfing!!!

"A reasonably wide open course off the tees but the greens are fast and sloping."

The day I played was extremely windy....I don't recall a windier day playing golf for now over 50 years. Fortunately, the fairways are reasonably wide. But the fairways do need some work as well as some tee boxes.

Greens were in excellent condition and very quick. Lot of slope. Definitely, the toughest part of the course.

Par 3's don't offer much opportunity for error and still hope to make par. Water carries, traps, etc. create the challenges.
