Plantation Palms Golf Club is a Good Choice for Weekend Play

Easy AdSense by Unreal   Last weekend was my first visit to Plantation Palms Golf Club since October of 2012. Once again, Plantation Palms did not disappoint. The course was in good shape from the tees and on the fairways. The greens also were in fine condition along with all the sand, and Plantation Palms […]

Heritage Harbor Golf and Country Club Can Test Your Patience

  Getting to back to Heritage Harbor Golf and Country Club for the first time in over a year, I wasn’t sure what to expect. My biggest problem with this course is the pace-of-play and sand trap conditions so I was eager to see if these had improved. For this visit, most of the course was […]

Cheval Golf and Country Club has Reversal of Fortune

I recently got back to play Cheval Golf and Country Club. I last played here at the end of October and found the course in good shape. The same holds true for this time around also, however I did notice that they changed the nines. The back-side is now the front and front-side is now the back. When we asked […]

Conditions Much Improved at Heritage Isles Golf and Country Club

It’s been over a year since I last played Heritage Isles Golf and Country Club. I was pleasantly surprised with the improved shape of the course as the last round I played here was a little disappointing. The tee boxes and fairways were all cut and in good shape. While the greens seemed a little fast, they were running […]

  I played Lexington Oaks Golf Club last week. It has been a little over a year since I last played there. You can tell from my past posts that I like the course and the challenges it offers.  Winding you through the Lexington Oaks subdivision there are a good variety of dog legs and straight drives. You are also challenged by a number of sand […]

It’s been six months since I played Pebble Creek Golf Club so I thought it was time to check out the current conditions. Pebble Creek is one of my favorite courses and provides good value for money. The course is not the longest par 71 you will play at just over 6400 yards from the back tees to slightly under […]

Course Condition Update: Wentworth Golf Club

I played Wentworth Golf Club for the first and only time back in April.  I liked the course, but because I hadn’t played it before and was unfamiliar with the layout, I was eager for a  second crack at it.   The challenge at Wentworth is making good course management decisions andaccurate shot placement, as the course is not […]

Course Condition Update: TPC Tampa Bay

I had a chance to check-out the latest conditions at TPC Tampa Bay last weekend.  We didn’t have the best timing as it had been raining the day before and also the morning of our start.  However, after much debate we decided to play anyway, if only to see how well the course’s drainage system worked. We were […]

Course Condition Update: Lake Jovita North Course

I played Lake Jovita Golf and Country Club’s North Course recently with an out-of-town friend. I haven’t played the North course since July 2011 (see my previous post here). We played in spite of the weather, which had been on-and-off rain all morning, and got lucky. After drizzle for the first 3 to 4 holes, the rain was done for […]

Condition Update: Pebble Creek Golf Club

The last time I posted on Pebble Creek Golf Club was back in October 0f 2011. While the course has remained in good condition, there have been a couple of changes.   On the positive side, Pebble Creek now has two sister courses, Wentworth Golf Club and Crescent Oaks Country Club (click the links to see my previous reviews).  Both are good […]
