Condition Update: TPC Tampa Bay

Easy AdSense by Unreal I’m always available to play TPC of Tampa Bay, and was happy to have another chance over the weekend.  This public-access course offers some of the best golf in Florida.  The condition is always fantastic, especially now, only six weeks after their Champions Tour event, the Ecompass Insurance Pro-Am of Tampa Bay.  The […]

Condition Update: Silver Dollar Golf Club

I played Silver Dollar back in February of this year for the first time and found the course enjoyable and in good condition. I went back this weekend with some friends who wanted to check it out after reading my post and hearing me talk about the course. We played the Gator and Panther nines on […]

Condition Update: Hernando Oaks Golf and Country Club

I like the course at Hernando Oaks Golf & Country Club, but have not played there since last May. When I had a chance to go this weekend with a few friends, I went expecting a good round. The last time  I played there the course was in good shape. The only down-side was the wet sand traps holding water […]

For more details, see my post: Quail Hollow Golf Course Reopened. This time was no different. The tees, fairways and greens were still in good condition as were the sand traps […]

Condition Update: Lexington Oaks Golf Club

The last time I played Lexington Oaks Golf Club was back in July. As before, the course is in good condition with well maintained tee boxes, fairways and sand traps.  The greens are still cut real short and play very fast. This golf course is a good test of accuracy over distance.  Pace of play was average for a foursome. We teed off in the […]

Condition Update: Babe Zaharias Golf Course

I played Babe Zaharias again.  Since I just played it a month ago, I wasn’t expecting much change from my last experience and there was no marked difference on the course conditions. Tees, fairways and sand were all good except for the odd trap or two that wasn’t raked, which can get annoying when your ball is […]

Condition Update: Pebble Creek Golf Club

The 10th hole is a par 4, dog-leg left. Narrow off the tee, this hole requires a straight drive. I played the course at Pebble Creek Golf Club again late last week.  The last time I played this course was in August  when the course was in good condition but suffered a little around the greens and sand […]

Condition Update: Pebble Creek Golf Club

I had a chance to play Pebble Creek Golf Club again Monday.  The last time I played this course was back in early April.   The course is still in good shape, with nicely mown tee boxes and fairways.  Most sand traps were fine except for a few that were washed out.  I also noticed the greens were a little wet and bumpier than […]

Condition Update: The Eagles Golf Course

I recently returned with a buddy to the Eagles Golf Club of Tampa Bay to finish my review and play the club’s second course, the Lakes.  I reviewed the Forest course back on May 23 and the course was in great shape.  However after arriving we were disappointed when staff in the pro shop suggested we play the Forest course as it was […]
