Although it is tucked away among rolling green hills and mature oaks, Lake Jovita Country Golf & Country Club is conveniently less than 30 minutes north of Tampa. The club offers two championship golf courses, the North and the South. The South Course, the original track at Lake Jovita, has a more traditional design than the other course. It features generous fairways and velvety-smooth greens. The layout weaves through lakes and ponds that into play on several holes. The course was built to fully utilize the hilly terrain, incorporating a variety of elevation changes throughout. The par-5 11th hole even features a 94-foot drop from tee to green, which is the largest natural elevation change in the entire state. It is one of Florida's "must-play" courses

Great as usual

Course looked great. Only gripe was you can tell it was aerated some time ago. No sand or anything but the little holes are still there. Other than that well worth the hot deal.

South course

Played south today what a wonderful layout. Some greens needed a little work but enjoyed this course more than north. However north is awesome too. Only issue for me was the walking to and from the cart on certain greens.. some of the cart signs put u out there super far to walk when going to putt..

North course in better shape than south

Played South Course at 736am. Greens were in good shape, but course could have been better. Drainage and clean of bunkers was not done, lots of clumps on fairways from cut grass, the holes were not cut well and had lots of ragged edges. Damage on portions of some greens, but overall rolling very well. I think with some minor attention to detail the South course would play as well as the North Course.

Awesome course

Much more challenging than the north course but just as beautiful if not more than the north course. Range is included in golf price and pro shop, snack shop, and amenities are great. 10/10 would recommend.
