Rating 71.5

Wentworth Golf Club is routed through a scenic and varied landscape of woods and wetlands. At 6,459 yards, the golf course is relatively short but it offers a demanding, target-style layout. The course has narrow fairways and small greens that run fast. The front nine is routed through towering stands of cypress trees, pines, and mature oaks while the back nine has a more links-style layout that will test your shot-making skills. Water hazards come into play on several holes but the far more prominent features of the course are the massive bunkers that lurk beside the fairways and greens, ready to swallow even slightly errant shots. Careful strategy is required throughout the course in order to avoid losing balls. In addition to the challenging layout, Wentworth G.C. boasts superb conditions that are considered some of the area's best.

A stereotypical neighbor course

I first want to compliment the entire staff as all where very friendly. The greens are in pretty good shape. Not close to the 10 on the stemp meter they state going to the first tee. The driving range is very rough. Old worn out mats and only 250 yds long with an assortment of worn out to new range balls. I played the black tees/tips and the the surfaces were very rough and honestly need to be resoded. Fairways have a mixture of grasses/weeds from tee to green with some areas that that are more weeds than grass. Bunkers had A LOT of rocks so be careful. Layout is very tight so bring some extra balls!! For $30 it was an ok day but don’t expect anything close to above average for course condition overall. Food in the grill was excellent and reasonable draft beer prices.

Great Day at Wentworth

Played a complete round at Wentworth on Friday afternoon, 3pm to 7pm. Course in great shape, excellent pace of play.
It's a challenging course for me, even though I am self-taught for 55 years. (maybe that's my problem!)
I recommend it. Great mid-afternoon rates.
If I lived nearer, I would golf there more often.

Communication

Tee time was purchased, upon arrival and sent to first tee, we were greeted by a hs golf team. 4 on the green 4 just driving, 4 on the tee box and more waiting. Obviously we were then told that they had to move us to hole 10, no big deal. However, when we came back to 1, they started sending people off and it was at a standstill. We did the golf course a favor by coming in and understanding the miscommunication. We were told by a nice younger gentlemen, no refund can be given, has to be from golf now. We will call in the AM. A simple voucher would have done the job, everyone happy.

Overnight rain

Cart path only. Back 9 has a great layout, but was soaked and mushy. Greens were in great shape. Front 9 zig zags and you have to watch for incoming balls from other holes. Fairways dried up fast. Tee boxes and fairways need a little work but greens were in great shape on both sides. Saw lots of deer, lots of water. Quiet with nature. Still a fun course. Will play again for sure.

The course is in bad shape

The only good thing about the course were the greens. They were a little slow but putted true.

Course in Poor Condition

This course was once a premier course in northern Pinellas. It is not any more. The course is in very poor condition with bare dirt in the fairways, very rough tee boxes and spare grass around the greens. The greens themselves were in pretty good shape, but were very slow. The sign on the first tee said the greens were running 10 on the Stimp, but I doubt that was accurate. If this course has an irrigation system, I suggest they start using it.

Driest Course In The Area

I learned long ago that most courses in the Tampa area are soggy and flooded after a few days of rain, which makes for poor golfing conditions. Certain courses I will not even play in the summer because of this. Enter Wentworth. Not glamorous or nice by any means. It is actually somewhat average for price and conditions, but when it rains heavily this course is the answer. Interesting that the fairways and greens are in average shape even in dry winter months, but it still manages to dry out quickly after lots of rain. There may be one or two fairways like #1 that are soggy, but this is my go-to when it has rained out every other course.

Was expecting a bit more

I’d played a few years ago and the course was great. However, the course today was rough to say it nicely. The tees were bare and not mowed. The fairways were the same. The play was fast and the course is tough and it made it better. I was disappointed with the conditions.

Horrible conditions

I’ve played this course multiple times over the last decade and I haven’t seen this course or any course this bad in a while! Only paid $22 and thought that was $22 too much.

Greens and fairways hadn’t been cut and were overgrown. Hitting out of the rough on almost every fairway it felt like. Not enjoyable at all!

Ever since this course went public it’s slowly been dying and it finally met its end. Won’t be coming back that’s for sure.

Could be great BUT

Greens were punched and sanded so did not expect great putting. However, the course has about six fairways with decent grass, and very playable holes and 12 that need extensive work. The lies are not too tight, they simply do not exist, Hitting iron shots constantly off hard pan after errand shots is one thing BUT the middle of fairway is, well, inexcusable. Fairways need to be punched and play suspended for at least a week for Mother Nature to revive the course. I feel for the need for cash but mine will be absent a long time.

They will Cancel your tee time on you and are rude about it

4 minutes ago-Edit
I USED to play here quite frequently with friends but wont be doing so after successfully booking a tee time on Tee-Off.com website, i was notified less than 24 hours before my tee time that it was canceled. when i called the course the pro shop manager said they dont cancel tee times so it wasnt there fault and was less than helpful and closer to rude since he tried to rush me off the phone. when i offered to send him the confirmation number to prove my point he said it wouldn't help me anyway and they are booked. DONT WASTE YOUR TIME and go play one of the other 5-6 courses nearby (like seven springs, tarpon woods, or lansbrook off the top of my head) that are actually helpful when you call, except for Crescent Oaks since that is a sister club of theirs.

We always like be this course in the gorgeous Wentworth community. Aside for the course conditions being surprisingly gnarly, we enjoyed our round and will be back in the future.
