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.

This was a lovely outing as a first time player of this course. The staff was friendly and provided good recommendations on how to approach the course for us first timers. The starter kept everyone on track so that players were going off on time. The greens were true and rolled at a medium speed. The practice green was representative of the course greens. The fairways in the front nine were tight - a lot of big trees & woods on both sides. The back nine holes had a lot of water but more open than the front. We played the tee boxes for 6053 yards. Ball placement in the fairway is necessary for the approach shots into the greens. If you get out of position on the fairways, then you will have to shape a shot into the green. Note: Many holes penalize you if you go over the green. Get the course booklet if you do not have an app that guides you around the course. This is nice course for this time of the year. The staff was friendly and professional. Electric carts are nice, without GPS. We paid a fair price for the course conditions.

The course played well. The greens were in decent shape and putting was consistent throughout all 18 holes. Tee be Ex’s needed some work but I would recommend it and play it again.

As usual, this is a fun course to play as most holes are entirely different from the others. The greens are very puttable, the fairways are good, and the rough is, well, quite rough in places.

Course is in good shape. Greens are a bit slow for my taste, but play very well. Fairways are frim and you get good a roll. Overall not too many people there so you can play a round in under 4 hrs.

Golfnow showed great review, but the course was a huge disappointment. First, we were placed behind three groups of beginners playing a scramble on a Sat morning. At first we thought this wouldn't be too bad, but after reaching the turn in 2:45 the fun was sucked right out of the day! There was no marshal to leep the pace of play so we just sat and sat and sat each and every hole. Second, the course is in such bad shape it was embarassing considering the beautiful homes that line the course. The tee boxes are without a doubt the worst I've played on in years. Most were unlevel and had more weeds than grass. We payed $25 and that was a total ripoff. Stay away from this course!!!!!!

Golfed the course many times and for what ever reason they let three groups of 5 golfers off in front of us. We didn’t know this until three holes. I was really shocked and I can’t remember the last time I saw one fivesome let alone 3 fivesomes. All the golfers were adults and men and should have known better. Won’t be going back there. I would give course 4 1/2 stars

played under windy and rainy conditions so not a great day on the course. However, very impressed by the conditions of the greens. The rains made them feel a little slow but perfect rolls like a nice carpet. Cannot wait until chance to go again on dry day.

One of the toughest courses in Tampa. Greensbin good shape. Bunkers were all different kinds of dirt and sand. The sand was like beach sand with no bottom. Fairways were ok. Rough is so so. Decent value at $25-30. Wouldn’t play for over $35. Some areas getting baked out without rain. Fun layout though.

Greens were true and fast. Fairways in front were tight - a lot of big trees & woods on both sides. Back 9 a lot of water but more open than the front. Harder than your course back home. So, play the correct tee box, Also if u get close to hitting the Greens or do, you will be over. Worth a try would like a better price.

Always like to play this course because of the layout. Can see improvements both on and off the course. The staff are a lot more engaging and the course improves with every passing season. Still a few bare bits to address bot overall great value for money.
