NOT SO GOOD

The Tee boxes need some help
The greens still had the holes from aireation not completely full.
Worse of all, we were a two some, behind two groups, the one group in front of us, had 4 some on the first hole, and on the second hole they became 6

The group in front of them, was a 5 players group

No golf etiquete as they did not bother to let us trough even though we were right behind them at all times.

There was no golf ranger. not sure what is or has happen, here but I have play before there is been 8 months or so since but, there use to be someone there.

Today was just bad, and No I did not had a bad day I score a 74.

But if you would be that expensive you should at least have someone out there making sure players are NOT stuck behind groups like that, or there shouldn't be a 5 some and 6 some in one tee box.

Hope that helps..

Stay Away.

Greens recently aerated and no information or at least a warning was given by either the golf club or Golf Now. I paid top dollar to play this course and had terrible conditions.

Why not give a warning us or at least inform that the course had recently aerated the greens?

Don’t Waste Your Money

I’ve been wanting to play this course for a few years now, but never played it before. I finally got the opportunity and I was super excited. When I arrived I ended up paying about $70 so my expectations were on high. To my disappointment the course was in horrible shape and there were no flags on any of the greens so you just had to aim to the middle. I will never spend more than $30 to play here because that’s what it’s probably worth. If you see $50 and up......run

Gave It A Second Chance

Most overpriced course in the Tampa area by a country mile. A $30 course priced at $70. Course conditions “decent” at very best and the layout isn’t anything special. There are much better options

Half Way

The course is a great old course in the middle of an older well kept community. The greens were in excellent condition and very challenging. The fairways were OK but do need some TLC in many places. The layout is fair and forgiving. A lot of bunkers strategically placed so you have to hit your shot. I’ll play it again.

Very poor pace of play

The weather was perfect today and there was a deal on golfnow to play here, and it's pretty close to my house so I took the deal. I wasn't paired with anyone and there was a single ahead of me. I thought of joining him but he was a pretty back player and I was playing the back tees. I waited on every shot for 6 holes. The par 5s were especially painful as the group that was 2 tee times ahead of me (a really, really bad female and a male who wasn't much better) wouldn't let the single in front of me through, but why would they? He hit multiple balls every shot and even though his tee shots barely went 200 yards, on the par 5s, he (very serious) waited for the group to clear the green before he hit his second shot, usually to around the 150-ish mark. After 6 holes I just drove in. I noticed that there was a 4some in front of the male/female group (a full hole clear) and they were all in the trees on both sides of the fairway. There was another 3some in front of them, but they were over 1 1/2 holes clear of them. My tee time was at 2:30 and the single asked to go ahead of me (said the pro shop told him he could). There is no way I would've finished 18 holes before dark at the rate everyone was playing.

Classic golf course

This place was a blast. Understanding the course is almost 100 years old will make its layout make sense. The greens were just thatched and still rolled true. A gem in the city.

Picturesque

Inviting fairways lined by massive oaks. Some greens have been sanded. Always fun and challenging.

Painfully Average

My first impression upon driving into this course was that I expected more. Door being a country club that offer a member for a day rate, this place is really nothing Special. I felt as though the conditions were average to slightly above average compared to the rest of the courses in the area. Tee boxes were nice, The Greens rolled okay (although I felt a little inconsistent from hole to hole), But the fairways were very average with some bare spots here and there. The layout was okay but really nothing to write home about. I did enjoy my round but can’t say I am dying to go back considering the relatively steep price. Also, I was a little off put by the fact that cash is not accepted at the pro shop.

BEWARE Horrible Condition - Ripping off Public to Subsidize Course Repairs

$65 to play a course that is under significant repair is nothing short of highway robbery. They’re subsidizing their repairs by ripping off the public and keeping their membership dues artificially low. Half of the course could be considered “ground under repair.” The Tampa municipal courses are even in better shape... I’d recommend staying away for at least a year while they fix this once beautiful course, unless you want to help them pay for it.

Losing its prestige

I have played this course many times over the years .
I am saddened about the conditions that all who play here have seen worsening over the last three years.
With the price charged to play here the course does not reflect the price. There are times you land dead center fair way
Then get to your ball and it like hitting out of a sand trap
Ther are also large clumps of invasive weeds in the fairway which inhibit roll out and tend to change directions of your ball
The greens also have weed clusters and the ball wont roll true.
I will not be back until conditions change

Great course in Poor Condition

Great greens can certainly change an overall opinion of a course. Unfortunately, the greens were aerated, so they couldn’t factor into my experience. Giving the greens a mulligan, my review is based on the rest of the courses condition, which was poor. The fairways, tee boxes, bunkers were all in the worst shape I’d ever seen them in. Sadly, this classic course is trending in the wrong direction.

Hadn’t played TT in a while

Played this course, since it was reasonably close, hadn’t played in a while. Man, it’s in rough shape. The fairway has barren spots of sand/dirt. Greens were acceptable, but that’s about it. There was a guy using hole 5 as a driving range. Biggest complaint is course conditions for the cost. About a $20 course.
