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.

Scottish Scotland Yards

Enjoyed our game here - with a friendly welcome when arriving to the excellent bar staff after our game in very hot conditions. The course felt unique to any others we have played in the Orlando area -like being in the hills somehow away from everyone else. This is not the best layout but for the very reasonable green fee the course was in good shape. Fairways in good condition and the greens smooth and true though a little slower than some.

getting better

I played this course 2 years ago and wasn't impressed, but a friend played it recently and recommended I give it another try. Most greens in good shape, fairways also better, although super tight lies, more grass on fairways needed. will be back!

Great course

As a senior I play from the gold tees and except for a couple of challenging holes (all on the front 9) it is a fair course and on the back 9 every hole can be parred, of course I haven't done that yet but the fact that's its possible makes playing the back nine very enjoyable.

Ok golf

The course has improved in the last few months. Greens are in most cases very good but some were burned out or mode too low for the dry conditions we are experiencing now. Some fairways were were a little bit bare and hard to find a nice lie. The course is challenging and the predominant winds make it a little bit more challenging.

Great price great course

From the appearance of the pro shop to the greens everything was great. Fairways were great, most divots repaired on fairways and greens. Greens were running at a good speed, not dead, actually green. Dropping some shots in the greens and no pitch marks which showed me they were hard greens immediately. Playing here again in a couple of weeks

Okay round

I like the course because you have to Hit good shots in order to score. The greens are very nice but a bit slow. The fairways are bare in some places and are possibly cut to short especially since we are in the dry season. The tea boxes are bare in some places and are uneven at times and difficult to find and even stance. I will play again because it's challenging.
