Scotland Yards Golf Club
Our local course...love it....friendly....great food and service.
The greens were a bit sketchy at the beginning or March but the they have fought back and are are now quite good. I love the course set up...fun holes with some length...you can use every club in your bag. The club house is friendly and well laid out. The food is wonderous...especially wing night every Tuesday...buy 10 and get 10 free...good quality wings.I highly reccommend this course for a good golf experience.

Fun and challenging layout.
Played Scotland three times while staying in Florida. We enjoyed the course which is why we came back. Staff was friendly. Starter apologized for late start due to a league that was going on. Greens are fast and lots of role in the fairways. Overall, my wife and I liked the Highlands and will return next Winter.

Advise friends to stay away
The course has been going down hill for the past 5 years. Greens terrible, cart paths would better suit a cross country track and the fairways getting more like the cart paths annually.

Great deal. Golf/Lunch/Drink under $25 cant be beat. Course was in good condition and staff was friendly.
Enjoyed the course very much. Highly recommended. Course was in good condition and staff was friendly.

Good value for your money
Pace of play was good. Fairways and greens were a little sparse.

Typical FL Course: firm, sparse grass on greens.
As seems to be common in FL this year, greens do not have consistent grass but still seem to putt quite truly. This is a good layout with a variety of holes: flat, uphill and downhill, varied yardages. Good Par 3's; some false fronts but with an opening to run the ball onto the green if needed. Of course, it is hard to complain about any course if you get an ace in your round. Hole # 8, blue tees, 218 yards, 3-wood.

The course has very good features
Think the course needs attention! The greens need to be mowed! New growth on the greens have the ball jumping all over the place!

Nice view of the hills.
Enjoyable course to play. The greens are tricky and fast. Wide open course, plays quite easily. Played it twice in one week, looking forward to going back.

The course was so crowded that I gave up after 5 holes, an hour and 40 minutes, late on a weekday afternoon!

I like to play her
good value, but greens could use some work. Good quick play in morning and a fun course if are looking for something not to challenging.

It's a golf course
The staff rubbed my group the wrong way the moment we walked into the pro shop. All staff including pro shop, cafe, and the starter were very rude. course was a fun layout but somewhat slow and congested on a weekday afternoon and the greens need attention desperately. Only good thing is the price.

Nice and Strait
This is a pretty nice course, very strait. Pretty good deal for the money. Paved cart paths would be nice. Overall an okay course for me, I would play here again.

It's one of the few courses around Tampa that's not flat as a board. The hills make for more interesting play. The staff is always friendly and the golf/meals deals through GolfNow make this course my favorite one in the area.

the course was better than expected
for the cost this was a real good deal. it was slow play but it is January so it is that way at most courses.

Nice course and great price.
Price is great and people are nice. Club house has good food and drinks. Also it is not a busy course. Greens are good as well as fairway. Hardly any water so that helps the normally golfers. It is fun to play and nice quiet surrounding.

Course was in good condition and the staff was very friendly. Afternoon tee time and round was played in less than 3.5 hours. Good mix of holes. Some challenging and some risk/reward. A good course for all abilities to have a fun time.

off the beaten path
Though it's in the middle of nowhere, this course was quite enjoyable to play. Not really much of a challenge except for a couple of holes, it's a good choice for value and for the beginner/novice player. Overseeding made for some interesting putts and variable speeds.

Decent if you're in the area
Course in the middle of nowhere. Staff was excellent, friendly and a nice change of pace. Course was a bit wet, grass was thin in spots, but overall worthy...especially for $25 on a weekend morning, plus they toss in a hot dog, chips and drink. Take the upgrade, pay $1 get a beer instead of soda!

The course is reasonable for us older players.
For those of us that have back issues, the cart paths are terrible. They are rough causing undo pressure on back problems.

Nice Layout Good Value
They always have a good deal on Golfnow with lunch included and sometimes it includes a sleeve of balls. The staff has always been super friendly and make everyone feel welcomed.Nice elevation on alot of holes and the greens usually roll very well. Only drawbacks that I have is that there is no driving range, and to have the 18th hole a dull, straight away par 3 is a buzz kill. A very good choice, and if you go during the week in the afternoons you can play in about 2 hrs...

Great price for golf, cart and grub! Course is fun and challenging.
Staff at golf counter friendly. Bar waitress, not so much. Fun and challenging course for this beginner/novice female golfer. I liked that I could play at a reasonable pace without feeling pushed to go faster. Vacationing from Vancouver, Washington where the rain makes the greens slow, so it was an adjustment to play on a faster green. (a few more puts than I would have liked). Staying at Lake Jovita, but the cheaper rates and more casual atmosphere made us more interested in this course. Going back for more tomorrow because hubby and I enjoyed the course so much.

Just a bit muddy
We really enjoyed the day. The course has characture. The rains made for a wetter fairway than their norm I suspect. All in all a nice course. Old carts, but they worked. People were friendly and the price was good. Need better restrooms on the course. Felt like Indiana Jones in the outhouse...lots of critters in them....

Very challenging greens
Be sure to be on pace with your puts, these greens are unforgiving just a bit too hard you could be taking a double bogey not a birdie. Great challenge and great value

I always enjoy playing this course. Challenging but not over the top.
