Conditions Much Improved at Heritage Isles Golf and Country Club

Easy AdSense by Unreal 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 […]

Eagles Golf Club, Forest Course – Thanks for The Renovations!

Looking to get in a Thanksgiving round of golf? If you’d like to try something a little special, try the Forest Course at the Eagles Golf Club. They completed renovations over the summer and I tested out the new conditions last week. The last time I played this course it left a lot to be desired but after hearing […]

No Change is Good at Cheval Golf and Country Club

        I played at Cheval Golf and Country Club last week, almost exactly one year since my last visit.  It was like I had never left. What I like about this course is that it doesn’t change. It is consistently excellent and lives up to its reputation as one of the best private/public courses to golf in […]

Lights Are On At Terrace Hill Golf Club

        Terrace Hill Golf Club is a practice facility and nine-hole executive-style course. What makes this facility stand out is that it is fully lit.  Not lights for just the driving range, but also for the nine holes. You don’t often see golf courses with lights, and this is the only one in Tampa […]

Plantation Palms Golf Club Still Up To Par

        Plantation Palms Golf Club was my first post over a year ago. At that time, the course was in great condition and I was excited to play it again. I am happy to see that although the course has undergone a management change, the course has not changed. In style, it is similar to many […]

Warning! Golfing Hunter’s Green May Cause Envy

        Living only a half mile from Hunter’s Green, a gated golf course community built 1989, you would think that I would play this course often. The problem is that it’s private. I played it a lot more when it was first opened with members and golf tournaments, but it has been a good ten years […]

Practice Golf at Tampa Bay Downs a Safe Bet

        I do a lot golfing, but I don’t do a lot of practicing. Sure, when I get to the course I’ll hit a few balls from a friend’s bucket to loosen up, or to just see how far ‘off’ or ‘on’ my game will be. Sometimes I won’t practice at all if […]

Great Course Design Highlight at Fox Hollow Golf Club

  I had the opportunity to play at Fox Hollow Golf Club a little over a month ago.  Designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr, each hole on this course presents its own unique set of challenges.  While some have open fairways, strategically placed water hazards and sand traps will keep you honest.  Some holes have tight, tree-lined fairways that provide visual intimidation.  The fairways are at […]

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 […]
