Price was excellent......BUT.....it was partly because 2 of the greens were closed off and they had recently aerated the greens. Didn't matter to me because it wasn't much more cost than a bucket of balls and was basically a great 'practice' round. The only complaint would be that it should have been mentioned that the greens had been aerated (at time of booking)....I can understand not knowing about the 2 closed off greens at time of booking but aerated greens should have been listed, as they normally are.

My Wife and I and our condo neighbors in St. Petersburg joined us. They had not played the course.

We had a great time... putting some balls in the water along the way. I played a little better than usual, so that was a bonus. We played in about 3 hours and then enjoyed lunch in their grill room. Fun day!

We spend winters in St. Petersburg, so Terra Ciea Bay is very close, just a quick hop over the Skyway. The course is in great shape and we can usually play it in 3 hours or less. And they have a very nice bar/grill to enjoy after the round. It's always fun to play there!

It's a nice par 60 course. Big alligator on #12--he's always there. Weather was great. We had 5 players, so a 2 and a 3. Played better than usual... and we had dinner in their grill which was very good. A good time was had by all!
