This course was in good shape but the greens need some work.

Cheap course....but getting better
The greens were better than 6 months ago, but were still a little sandy. And a few tee boxes were in bad shape.
It's a short course with a nice view, if they can get the grass thicker it would be a nice course.

I've played here many times over the years and have always enjoyed it. However, the conditions of many of the tee boxes, greens and fairways are atrocious. I actually worked at this course one summer many years ago and it's sad to see it being neglected.

Great hidden course.
Challenging narrow course where you can practice on your shaping shots.

Poor maintenance and mgmt
The staff here certainly does NOT go out of the way to be friendly. The older gentleman in the pro shop never goes out of his way to crack a smile or be nice to anybody of my younger generation. (I'm 30 years old)
75% of the greens are sandy with many ugly patches. The Tee Boxes are the worst I've ever seen them. Fairways were in average shape.
I live right beside this golf course but go out of my way to avoid this track. Has potential to be a great course because the views at the end of the back 9 are the best in area.
Avoid this course and opt for East Bay (10 minutes away) instead. In the winter months when Snowbirders are down they do pay a bit more attention so may give it another shot in November or December.

I remember it being better
I played this course about 3 years ago and thought it was in fantastic shape so I had always looked forward to playing it again. I just played it again recently and wasn't as impressed. The course itself is very nice, situated in a nice community. It has many challenging holes and some of the holes on Tampa Bay are stunning views. Now the course itself this time....ehh. Many of the fairways, that's right the fairways, were overgrown, probably and inch and a half high grass. The greens were not in good shape wither. Many had weeds replacing some of the grass. The weeds were mowed down low, however the roll is so inconsistent when rolling over different types of grass/weeds. Hopefully they get those problems fixed because the sights on this course are second to none in this area.
