Scotland Yards Golf Club, as its name implies, has a traditional links-style layout that is reminiscent of the traditional links courses of England and Scotland. It offers the experience of classic Scottish golf with the convenient of being only 20 miles north of Tampa. The golf course tumbles across the gently rolling hills of west central Florida. The course plays long and it features wildly undulating greens that require tremendous accuracy. True to its links nature, there is little water but there are plenty of pot bunkers treacherously lurking throughout. The signature hole is the par-5 second. At 554 yards, it is the longest hole on the course and it is only rarely reached in two. The demanding third shot is uphill to a green that is fiercely guarded in front by two massive mounds and pot bunkers.

Needs work

Fairways look bad especially on the back greens not much better but it’s still a good course to practice on but wouldn’t pay no more than $15 until it gets better

This course needs some work

The reason that I gave this course low ratings ! 1 upon getting a cart key I had to go to the cart barn and get a cart as their were no carts in line to get and did not see an employee 2 the tee's are quite bad and 3 the fairways have very little grass on them ! Now I have played this course before and it has been ok but after today I'm thinking that it's not worth the Hour plus drive so hopefully it will get the much needed care that it deserves !

Terrible condition

I played here last year and it wasn't very good. I thought I'd try it again yesterday, terrible, dry as a bone and very little grass. The greens were okay but the rest of the course was terrible. Don't waste your money or time playing the course

Great Course

Great work by the staff for the upgrades on golf carts and work on the course. Greens are in good shape and fast. Fairways on some holes are bare and some tee boxes are in need of work. Overall great work improving conditions, and course is fun to play.

bad shape

played here about 2 months ago and the fairways had some grass on them. They are now burned up. If you like a lot of roll come play. The only thing is you’ll have to hit it off of the dirt. I won’t be back

Disappointing

Having played the course earlier in the season was sorely disappointed in the conditions of the course. Tee boxes and fairways were mostly dead grass. The greens were the only thing that prevented a worse rating. Like the course when it is better shape but not now. Will not be back this season

Horrible

All fairways were dried out. No green grass in fairways. Staff did not notify players that the well pump was not working 10 days ago.. Shame on the owner.

Terrible

Not a green blade of grass on any of the tee boxes and fairways. By far the worst conditions I’ve played on this entire winter in Florida. Not worth $10. For 18.

Don't try to play on the weekends

Called for the starter before we started on the first hole after watching a group of 5 tell a single player that he couldn't play through , but if they get more than 2 open holes ahead of them then maybe he could play through. No starter the entire front 9 and was blown off on the turn when we tried to have them split up or held back on the 10th hole.
