Course Reviews


The best course I have played in Florida! The South was a real challenge on the fast greens. The fairways were very lush and green, which made it easy to hit irons and hybrids off. The round took just over 3 1/2 hours to complete. Pro staff were very friendly, and the starter gave us some pointers to avoid!Mainly water... Check out number 11 South, the largest elevation change of any golf hole in Florida. Would recommend this facility to anyoe who wants a challenge on a world class course.

Greens are not as nice as they used to be. Bunkers were short on sand. It appears that they maintainance budget has been cut. Not as good as a couple of years ago.

This is a real live golf course and you pay for what you get. It is not the best I have ever played but it beats anything in this area. Just not sure how it survives in this economically distressed community.

Played over the holiday. Best greens in the greater Tampa area right now. Absolutely perfect. For the money, this is the best value in Tampa. Get out and play here soon.

Just played the South Course. What a treasure of a find! Kudos to the all the staff, professional, helpful and friendly. Course itself was a real treat. Lots of elevation changes -- almost Carolina-like golf in Florida. Challenging no doubt - but without being punitive. You have to think this course through and use sound course management. Fairways plush and generous. Lots of bunkers, but not excessive. Greens a bit fast due to recent aeriation but very playable. No. 11 is the best, a 526-yard Par 5 with an elevation change of about 95 feet. Gene Sarazen played here, folks! I savored every minute I was on the course, enjoying the scenic layout, often looking back as well to enjoy the views. A great course, a beautiful course to play. I had a wonderful experience and plan on playing it many more times. There's nothing to dislike and everything to enjoy here. A memory maker.

This course is the most recent acquisition by Lee Golf. The level of service and quality of offerings are already starting to deteriorate. Soon this course will resemble Tour 18 and The Trails of Frisco in Dallas. Little or no budget to operate and a tremendous amount of deferred maintainence. Absolutley no regard for the members.
