Great Course, Left Thirsty

Course was in great shape and is always a fun challenge. Greens are the best in the area.

We were told there would be a beverage cart on the course, but we only saw her on our second hole and then not again. Coupled with the lack of water coolers (odd COVID precaution), we ended the round dehydrated and hungry.

So, bring your A-game, and your own drinks and snacks and you’ll have a great time!

Fantastic as always

This course never ceases to amaze. From the rolling fairways, speedy greens, and impeccable conditions this course is a must play for any locals or visitors. This is unlike any other Florida golf experience. Expect elevation change.

Not your typical Florida course

This course was in great shape and an awesome challenge. The undulation was not typical Florida and seemed like I was playing in the mountains. The only complaint I had is even after hitting awesome shots right in the middle of the fairway, many times I was left with very uneven lies. Either my ball was a few feet above or below myself. Which I understand is the design but I feel that if you hit the middle of the fairway you should be rewarded with an even lie. I am not sure there are any even lies anywhere on this course.

Above and Beyond expectation

Playing Southern Hills made me truly understand how masterful Pete Dye was with his course architecture. True to typical Pete Dye style, the greens were very undulating and difficult. The routing provided many great holes, with subtle but engaging turns and dramatic elevation changes. The bunkering on the course was phenomenal, several of the bunkers were placed in spots that made it crucial to play target golf. They were even interesting design aspects like bunkers built into large mounds. Playing at Southern Hills Plantation is more like an out of Florida experience. Not many other places in Florida what do you see so much elevation change and feel so much like you are in West Virginia or even the foothills of California for that matter.

My experience with both the restaurant and the pro shop were very pleasant and I was impressed by the size of the clubhouse. If you get the opportunity, you would be a fool to turn down the chance to play Southern Hills Plantation.

Southern Hills is amazing

First time playing southern hills and I was not disappointed. The course was in great shape from tee to green. The staff was very friendly and this club has everything you could ask for. The carts are the most comfy ride you will ever have. Overall it was a great experience and the cost was a $100 but there’s a lot of other courses that charge more but not as nice

Great Track

This is definitely one of the best courses I have played in the area. Great greens. It’s an actual golf course with full size holes. If you are a low handicapper you can’t misS this track. Well worth the money.

Over priced

The course is very nice but they never have good prices for locales to play it without taking out a loan last year they had some good deals on playing it but not this year and I don’t have any desire to play courses for more than $55

Awesome golf

This was a beautiful course, very challenging and in superb condition. Probably one of the best course I have played ever. Greens are firm and fast. Fairways are tight. Took the first 9 holes to learn how to play the greens. Breaks are going to freak you out when putting. Make sure to walk around and read your putts from every angle or you won’t see the correct read.

Good course

This was a nice course, a little bit pricey based on the difficulty. It took me an hour and thirty minutes to get there and I was hoping it was going to be as difficult as Bella Colina, but it was not.

I also noticed the lack of diversity which made me feel a little uncomfortable but thankfully no one was overtly obnoxious
Overall a good experience but pricey.

Lack of diversity? There are four par 3's, four par 5's and the rest are par 4's. Are you saying there are too many par 4's?

Amazing Pete Dye Exprience.

The Master golf course designer hit a home run with this one. I've played numerous Dye courses and never expected a layout like this in Florida. I wont spoil it with it details....just exprience it yourself. Greens were punched probably a week or two prior to my round, but still rolled fast a true. Bunkers were under repair, but you're supposed to stay out of them anyway....!!

Best course in North Tampa

This was the first time playing Southern Hills. From the bag drop to check in the facility was top notch. The Pete Dye design was great. A lot of elevation change with dynamic bunkering.

The course had aerated the greens but they gave us a discount that was not advertised. Even with the greens under repair they were still better than 90 percent of the courses in the area.

Everything was thought of. Free range balls before the round. Cart service throughout the round and they had the restaurant open (with masking and social distancing protocols).

Southern Hills is a premier course and you get a premier experience.

Top notch course

We did play afternoon on a nice day that was cool in am. They did have cart path only on hole nine. It was a 4.5 + hr pace due to a windy day with a lot of golfers. The greens were fast but would receive a shot well. It is a course you should play, just get your correct tee box as fairways were wet so roll out of tee shot was minimal
