Holes 18
Par 71
Length 6484
Slope 125
Rating 70.7
Type Semi-Private
The Links of Lake Bernadette enjoys verdant landscaping and a rolling terrain that are perfectly complemented by mature and towering pines. At 6,400 yards, the golf course is seemingly short but it feels like it plays much longer due to frequent doglegs that can be found throughout. Six of the par 4s play over 400 yards and a few par 3s measure over 200 yards, which also helps the course feel longer. Water hazards and bunkers come into play but they are balanced by large greens and wide fairways that make for easier approaches. Although beginners won't feel out of place and there are four different sets of tees, the golf course boasts several tricky holes that will challenge even the best players. One of these, the 163-yard 13th, was once called the best par 3 in Tampa Bay.

This course was too wet

The golf shop did not tell me that the course was saturated with water before I reserved. Very disappointed with the management. The price was very high for the course conditions.

Bogie playing

At the time the greens were being aerated and sanded but even still most players we're coming in already to the green with bogie scores. So, our group consisting of Par Players, had up a 45-minute time span from approach, getting off the green and to the next Tee Box. I attribute this to Lake Bernadette stacking tee times too close together to use the fact that they were conditioning greens so they could keep up with their earning potential. 20+ handicappers should be limited to nine holes.

No course manager

The only negative comment would be the pace of play. On the back nine play was backed up for 4 holes starting on hole ten. Slower groups would not allow you to play through. Had to skip three holes. The course should have had someone managing pace of play.

Great little gem.

Love this course, return often. Challenging but fun, all but 1 green was in good shape running fair 8-10ish, good mix of straights & dog-legs, risk-reward 4s & 5s, moderate 3s. This course truly shows it's bite from the tips, be warned!, enjoy!
