Rocky Point Golf Course has one of the most interesting histories of any golf course in Florida. Originally opened in 1911 under the name f the Tampa Automobile Club, it was one of the first courses in the state. It closed in 1942 due to World War II. After being turned over to the city of Tampa for a mere $1, it reopened in 1954 as Rocky Point Golf Course. It is the closest golf course to Tampa International Airport, only a 15-minute drive away. The layout provides a fair challenge water hazards coming into play on 11 holes and sand bunkers strategically placed throughout. Rocky Point Golf Course's lakes are home to an abundance of wildlife and also serves as a bird sanctuary.

Great Track!

This course was a lot of fun. Very well maintained, with big greens. They have the ability to move the pins and give this course a new look every time you play it. Greens were in great condition, fairways mint, overall great course.

Dump

Among the worst courses I’ve ever played. $58 to play with a cart and it wasn’t worth half that. No starter on a busy Saturday and it was a free for all. Twosomes all over the place…people just teeing off whenever they were ready. Didn’t seem like there were any rules of any kind. Course is terrible and the tee boxes are an absolute joke.

Fun outing

Chance for my son and I to get in a quick nine. We had a great time. Course was in good shape. Definitely better than last outing.it’s obvious they are focusing on improvements. That’s a good thing. Fun, cost efficient, well paced round. We’ll go again

Last minute round

I needed a round to loosen up before a local
Outing. Staff was friendly and courteous. Got out early. Course was in good shape. Greens a little on the slow side. Played 18 in just over 3 hours. A great value, for a last minute warm up round. Close to the airport hotel and easy to find. I’ll play here again next time I’m in town.

Solid!

Very enjoyable round of golf. Challenging enough for the casual golfer, and fast enough (no waiting) for a 3.5 hour round on a weekday AM.

Fairways in decent shape with thin lies. The tee boxes needed the most TLC. Greens were consistent.
