Needs major revamp.

Fairways are not in good shape. In general disrepair. Greens were decent. Pace of play was somewhat slow.

Fast Greens

Really challenging to put it in the cup with how fast the greens were. Loved it. Course is still quite wet, as it usually is in the summer, being low-lying and so close to Tampa Bay. One of the Par 4 holes was cut back to a very short Par 3. But it was still a super fun day of golfing. Tom and Pete were super helpful. Sadly, the bar and restaurant are not open, but drinks were available in the Pro Shop.

Looks open, Plays tight

First time playing this course. Fairways in pretty good condition, greens very good and fast. Would play again. Water on every hole, only comes into play on a few, unless you go right or left.

Surprised

Had not played here in awhile .........course previously a bit rugged .......dry, brown fairways in spots, greens with some weeds and slow on occasion. But .......found conditions on this day quite lush, full fairways and excellent greens. Bunkers OK. Well trimmed.around the edges, waterways, etc. Sorry to hear this regulation course going under for development in favor of exec layout. Too bad!!!!

Apollo Bech GC - everyone’s a member

They are great people.
Course is solid.

Definitely recommend playing after 11am because course needs a little time to dry.

Only dislike was nothing the course could control... lil explicit language directed at said person was playing solo cut in front of me and had the audacity to play 3 balls off the tee box AND PLAY ALL THREE BALLS.
