Golfing TPC Tampa Bay Provides Pro-Like Experience

Condition Update: Lexington Oaks Golf Course

We replayed Lexington Oaks Golf Club this past weekend and I’m happy to say it is still in very good shape.  As I said in my previous review, Lexington Oaks is one of those courses I like because there are a lot of shots you can take where the risk is high but the reward […]

The Saddlebrook Resort Offers More Than Just Tennis

Although perhaps better known for its tennis academy, Tampa‘s Saddlebrook Resort also offers access to two Palmer designed golf courses: The Palmer and Saddlebrook courses.  We played the Palmer course  offering four sets of tees ranging from just over 6600 yards to just under 5200 yards.  The fairways were generous to the tee shots for the most part  but can leave you […]

The Forest Course at The Eagles Golf Club – What’s in a name?

The Eagles Golf Club at Tampa Bay features two great 18-hole golf courses; The Lakes and The Forest.  On this day we played The Forest course however the name is misleading as it seems to me there is more water here than on its sister course.  The Forest is shorter than The Lakes playing 6700 yards from the tips to just under […]

Hernando Oaks is a Break from the Ordinary

Hernando Oaks Golf Club is a refreshing change from the crowded, house-lined fairways of most courses in the area.  Here there are few houses, especially on the back 9 which is rare and the seclusion makes you feel like you’ve got the course to yourself.  The landscape is one of rolling fairways and towering oak trees […]

The Links of Lake Bernadette was Worth the Drive

I’ve played the Links of Lake Bernadette golf course several times and it’s not always been in the best condition.  This generally prevented me from making the drive to this course which is a little out-of-the-way.  However, overall the course was in very good shape from tee to green.  Fairways were mown and the greens […]
