The Bay Course at Macdill AFB is an awesome track, with wonderful scenery and some very challenging holes. It is the finest course for the money I have played!

Well, it was bad, real bad, the entire course was brown dead hardpan, it was like hitting off a sidewalk. I had a 3 handicap wih me that ended up shooting 90 here. I understand that there was a drought at the time, but I don't understand them watering the driving range, while the fairways were dead, which was a little misleading, You see everything nice and green, at the club house, you go out on the course everything is brown, sans the teebox and the greens, it would have been a top notch course if not for that, Definately not worth $30 paid to play in the heat of the summer. I don't know why I didnt go complain at the turn and make them give us a free replay or something. Didn't think about it. Very nice clubhouse though.
