No Change is Good at Cheval Golf and Country Club

Easy AdSense by Unreal         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 […]

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 […]

For the Love of Golf

        My Dad taught me the game of golf 40 years ago. Some of my best memories growing up, and as an adult, are on the golf course with my Dad. He was a good golfer, but even when I was younger he would never let me win. As I got older he […]

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 […]

Enter the “Snakepit” at Innisbrook Resort’s Copperhead Course

A few days ago I was able to play the Copperhead course at Innisbrook, a Salamander Golf & Spa Resort. Of the Innisbrook Resort’s four courses on property, Copperhead is the most famous. In their September issue, Golf magazine ranked Copperhead 76 in the top 100 courses you can play. Copperhead is also home to the PGA  Tour […]
