Designed by Lloyd Clifton, Westchase winds through acres of lakes, conservation areas and forest. It offers manicured greens surrounded by natural wetlands, wooden bridges and bulkheads. With its 9,500 sq. ft. clubhouse, full-service dining room, and fully stocked pro shop, Westchase offers a country club atmosphere along with first-class service. The golf club has established itself as one of Tampa Bay's best upscale golf facilities. The front nine meander through an impressive pine forest. The back nine -- which is demanding on the tee shot -- features lakes, wetlands and cypress. Strategically placed bunkers, more sparkling lakes and stands of cypress, oak, palmetto and pine frame the fairways and greens. Signature Hole No. 3, at 212 yards from the back tee, is all you can handle -- It's a Par 3 all-carry over water from the back tee!

Disappointing, listed as top 10 courses to play in Tampa area

This course was disappointing ! Read the reviews and sounded promising., however was anything but enjoyable. Course conditions were fair noticeable crab grass in fairways. Greens were bumpy and patchy. Pace of play was UNBEARABLE and unacceptable! We will not be returning.

Solid all around

Generally good round and a fair condition. Sunday pins were in effect with some tough spots but within reason.

Rain Out? Rain Check?

Just got back today Sunday May 31,2021 from Westchase. The manager of the course decided to close it down at 345 due to a little rain. Have no idea why. Played two holes, was on third when employee came up to us and told us they were closing the course. There was hardly any rain, no puddles, nothing. Nobody could understand why the course was cllosing. The rain stopped, sun came out as we packing up our clubs. Then they have the audacity to gives us part of our money back. Took off like 16$ for the holes we played instead of giving us a 18 hole rain check. And to top it off the greens that we played were pockmarked like the moon. Not a happy day. And no courses seem to plant rye grass in the winter anymore. Fairways bare, green surrounds bare. Overpriced golf course in my opinion and bad management.

Enjoyable course with excellent staff

First time playing this course with a group of 8. From initial arrival at the course, the staff was extremely accommodating. One of our group members flight was delayed and got in an hour after tee time, the starter was very understanding and stored his bags for him when he arrived and drove him out to the group. The course itself was very fun and everyone enjoyed the round. For this time of year, the course was in good shape, just dry which is to be expected. Compared to other courses played this weekend, this course was the best. I would certainly play again. Thank you for starting our golf trip on such a high note.

Tough tract

This course is a very tight layout with rough that is impossible. Off fairway trees and underbrush are so thick that you hardly dare venturing off the fairy. We played on a windy day which made things more difficult.

It is nice

Not our first playing, it is a nice course, we live here in Fl so when it goes over 150 bucks for two we dont like it much.
This one was 172 bucks or so, but is worth it once in a while.

Pace of play was nice, even though the one that got pair up with us, decided to play from the tips, I have got a question? If you cant even reach the fairway, why then you play from the tips? Add to it, that your are going out of bounce or hitting the turf in front of you with your ball with the driver?

Anyways play to your skills , and you would have fun, just saying.

So just move it along, blame a bird or something and stop hitting 3 or more balls, you are holding up everyone, or take lessons.

Youtube videos is not where you get lessons from, that is a rabbit hole, find a teaching pro.

Just a free PSA, for lots of you out there..

Westchase G.C.

Very challenging from the blues and whites. We played the green tees as none of us ever played the course before, which was much less challenging, but still fun. Next time I'll do the whites to add an extra element of difficulty. Off the tee accuracy is a must on this course...bring some extra balls for sure.

Best residential Course in Tampa

First time playing Westchase and glad I did. Excellent in all phases. Tremendous "floating pond" driving range and wonderful putting greens too. .. WOW .. very upscale Golf Course. . is there a finer facility in the Tampa region ? .. NO . I rate this up with World Woods , Lake Jovita and Saddlebrook as the top three courses in Tampa Bay for the General Public !!!
