St. Petersburg Country Club
Old style course that makes for enjoyable experience
SPCC has been around a long time and provides an enjoyable and challenging golfing experience. I specfically enjoy the fact that there is no parellel fairways. It is out and back in course that provides a wide variety of holes and challenges that any level of golfer can enjoy. I would recommend this course to anyone that would like to enjoy a historic and challenging course.

Very Nice Club
St. Petersburg CC was in very good shape and our group played in less than four hours. Greens running near 10 and very true. Fairways excellent and rough was a bit scraggly but not unfair.

Good course with beautiful birds.
The course was a pleasant surprise. It had been a recent private club but now allows some public play. The members we met were friendly. There were many magnificent water birds throughout the course(ibis, great blue heron, egret, & others). It was a good course with excellent greens.

The better course I played so far in the region
I would like very much play more often that course

Old style course struggling with the times
Plays fairly long from the whites, especially in windy conditions. Generous fairways, traps mostly affect long hitters, course rating and slope not consistent with ease of play. I'm told that previously there were many more trees that came into play so higher rating and slope may have been justified.

Best condition of the courses we played this weekend
Course was in great shape - best greens we played all weekend - enough challenge for us Chicago duffers looking to shake off the winter snow. We had the place to ourselves due to the fifty degree weather - played 18 holes under three hours-

Very playable and good value.
At first when we drove up we thought there was something wrong with the greens, but after making it to the putting green we found out that they rolled very true and quick. Greens are the best part about this course. It's very playable with not alot of trouble. Would def play here again.

Beat all expectations
As you drive into this area of i275, you start to think, where am I going? First look of Club is all a bit run down, but do not let this dissuade you. Course is well established, in great condition (fairways very lush!) and greens rolling smoothly. Pace of play was good too: all in all, a great morning's golf!

Great course but.....see below
Unfortunately now that they offer t-times to puplic for the Guest fees($)....they ram them between member times/games and usually the non-members are sent off the back 9,just to get out.Last time members whos' t time was 15 minutes later cut in front of my group on 10,which made our group cut in front of a 2some coming off 9,just to prolong an upcoming painfully slow day.

Just a beautiful course
First time playing the course as I was driving down 19 and going past Central heading to the south side which i really never do I was thinking wow where am I goin and then all the turns through some of the really rough lookin streets I was thinking this course cant be as good as I heard it was and when i finally got there about a 45 minute ride for me it was a very confusing really large entrance but i was well greated in parking lot and a ride to the Pro shop where the staff was very nice with range balls included and a very nice range and the couse was in great shape beautiful plush fairways nice and spongee and beautful greens that rolled so true i loved it,best course I ever played in Florida and I played just about every course there is loved the layout of the course and definitely would reccomend it to anyone and I can't wait to play it again,

A private club that is in superb condition
Lots of water..lots of doglegs..Most of the greens are elevated, and the surface is smooth and slick!! Traps are very playable, and numerous. Staff was as friendly as they possibly could be. Actually a lot more so than our private club. Not cheap, but very worth the money. Highly recommended!!

Best course in St. Petersburg
This course is one of the best in the area. With the plush fairways and the well manicured greens, this course is a must play.

No tricks - just straightforward golf
What you see is what you get - only one blind shot on course (#15 has water crossing fairway before the green). Well maintained all around from tee to green. Plenty of water but an equal amount of wide fairway to help you avoid trouble - if you're in water, chances are you shanked a shot. We played on a Monday at 10 a.m. as a twosome and finished in 2 1/2 hours without seeing anyone ahead of us until hole #11. Course winds through various neighborhoods in two 9-hole circles with no parallel fairways. . Only annoyance was some interference from work crews - got a face full of air & flying grass as a fairway blower drove by us about 10 feet away, and on #15, a sweeping sprinkler was running on the green so we had to dash onto the green to make a rushed putt or we would be soaked when the sweep of the sprinkler came around. Good value for the money - would play again if back in the St. Pete area

typical florida golf course flat and plenty of water
ive played nicer courses during my stay nin st petes....greens were in need of some TLC.... rye grass needs a trim...green fee for a private club respectable. Tradition and very little else to get excited about

a neat course!
Upon arrival to the p/l, a guy was there immediately in a cart offering to load my clubs. The guy in the pro shop was courteous and informative. The course was in overall good shape - tees and greens very good; the fairways were over-seeded w/Rye and needed to be mowed. The layout is fairly benign, meaning everything is in front of you. Only once was a water hazard out of site (luckily I missed it). It's old style, not tricked up, fair. There's plenty of room to drive the ball, approach shots need to be accurate to relatively small greens. Picturesque par 3's. I enjoyed it and look forward to playing it again.

Fun course to play and great value
An old style course that was in excellent shape. The greens are tricky but fair. Greta par 3's especially number 17. The staff especially the pro were very welcoming. Really felt the "member for a day" concept

Nice, "Old Florida" course. Well maintained. Very friendly staff.
Would recommend and play again if up that way. Routing good. No parallel fairways or houses hindering the view.

Staff extremley cordial and explained course lay out thoroughly. Played course in 3.5 hours and conditions some of the best played in this area of Florida. Greens of high quality. A no brainer for the money - we will return for sure.

Great old style course.
This course has a great layout in the tradition of old style courses. Greens were well maintained and quick with plenty of subtle breaks that made it challenging. With a pair of bald eagles soaring overhead and a 3 1/2 hour round you can't go wrong. Will definitely be returning to this course soon.

True and fast greens, overall excellent condtions
First time I have played here in a couple of years and I was pleasantly surprised. The tee boxes and fairways are in good shape. The rough is thick but not too punishing. Greens are amazing and will only get better.
Get out and play here if you can, well worth the money
