Rough

Tee boxes and greens in great shape. Fairways are dormant with minimal grass to hit off of. All areas surrounding greens nothing but hard pan and dirt. Almost impossible to hit good shots from around the greens due to nothing but hard pan.

Day at the beach

Course is in excellent condition and the pace of play was superb for this time of the season. As advertised, there are lots of bunkers. I took 9 shots from the sand. Challenging.

This Time of Year

The course was in pretty good shape. The sand traps are still hard need to have the sand loosen up. The tee boxes are in good shape.
The greens in decent shape.

Ok

Greens and tee boxes in great shape. Bunkers hadn't been raked in a week or more. Bunkers need raked in the worst way. Fairways brown with minimal grass and no overseed but playable.

Pretty course

This was my first time at Silverthorn and i was looking forward to playing with other golfers as playing alone on a new course can be tricky. I booked it thinking i would be playing with 3 other players. When it was close to my tee time the starter said he could not find the other 3 players! and asked if i minded plying alone. not wanting to cause a fuss i said to problem. I think when they were told they were playing with a lady they took off!! I did catch up with them and when they saw i was hitting the ball as well as them they invited me to join up but i declined because they had ditched me and it was more fun to watch them hack the ball. Maybe they were afraid of being beaten by an old lady LOL

The course was OK....greens were firm and in nice shape; however, the fairways could stand some attention....lots of bare spots.....not too much water but a fair amount of sand....Pace of play was slow as they put the two of us behind a 4 some with one child...took us nearly 5 hours to play.....

Great course for the price range

Family and I have been playing this course for over 15 years. Staff has always been great and the course is well maintained. With the increased popularity over the years the greens take a beating from the divots. I repair several extras regularly due to the lack of courtesy by other players. The sand traps have gotten really packed and need to be tilled to loosen the sand back up. Overall great course and everyone we bring say it’s worth the drive from Clearwater, Tampa and surrounding areas. Upkeep of the course and the friendly staff has kept us coming back. Hope it stays that way for another 15.

Needs Work

Overall the course was in good shape. A few things need to be addressed , like the ball marks on most of the greens. The other thing are the sand traps being so packed down and hard.

Not a bad course for the money. Enjoyed the finding a course in the area near 7,000 yards. Greens weren’t super fast but rolled nice and were in good shape. Overall, not too bad for the price.
