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.

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.

Overall the course is in fair condition but the greens are by far the best part of the course, not super fast but very smooth rolling.

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.

The course was in good shape greens rolled true and a good speed. The only problem I had was if the ball missed the green i was playing in dirt just off the apron.

It was a good round, though I have to play only 9 holes because the rain started to pour so hard before I can tee on the 10th hole. I still believe it was a good value using Golfnow even if I did not complete 18 holes. I will continue to get my rounds from Golfnow.

The greens were very good. On the other hand, the tees were terrible, the fairways very sparse and the sand traps did not have enough sand to be named that. Staff was friendly and helpful.

I had high hopes after reading recent reviews and upon pulling into the neighborhood - beautiful homes surrounding this golf course. The course claims to have fast greens running at a 10 on the stimp meter, but they were all fairly slow compared to what I normally encounter in the Midwest. The condition of the greens were excellent with very few ball marks and all of them rolled true. The condition of the rest of the course was terrible...dirt pan fairways and tee boxes. Bunkers had little sand and the ponds were nearly dry. The course layout was interesting with a lot of variety in the hole design and there was some welcome elevation changes - generally non-existent for Florida golf courses. Club house/Pro Shop/Bar closed before 6:30 p.m. - could not watch the final holes of Masters Sunday when I finished my round. Inexpensive round, but not a very good experience.

i love playing here and usually do several times a month. unfortunately the course is in bad shape and doesn't look like its going to rebound anytime soon. Ace management needs to put some money into fixing it up. it seems

as though the plan is to wait for the rainy season to bring the course back to par. Fox Hollow, Dunedin Golf Club and dare I say: even Tarpon Woods is a better experience. Keeping my fingers crossed, hoping the owners will spend a little money to improve what was once one of the better semi private courses in the area

The course has very little grass except the greens were good. The tee boxes were sand, very thin grass on the fairways and hard packed sand for the rough. Its apparent they havnt been able to water the course. All the ponds were way down or almost empty.
