Scotland Yards Golf Club
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.

This course needs help and care but it appears the owners are doing as much as they can to bring it back to being a hidden treasure. With that said, the course was in good shape and even with weeds on the greens. It was flattened out so that you could still get a more true roll in your putting. I was asked after my round what I thought by someone who works there and that was really nice that she was really interested in my comments and because of that as well as the awesome original design, I will come back and play.

The course is a good layout. But it isn't in the best of conditions. Tees are average for this time of year in FL. Greens a rolling average speed, but they have a lot of crab grass /weed spots on them, resulting in bumps and kicks off line on putts of any distance. Tees are just average. Rough is high and needs mowing. There is construction between holes 3 and 4. Staff is friendly as were players.
I haven't played this course in about a year and a half. I probably won't be back until I hear the condition has been broght up to par.
Fun Course greens, fairways a little shabby no big deal
Staff Friendly a lot of negative review was not expecting much but far exceeded my expectations. Wiil play again
The rough could use some cutting
Nice old course
With all the rain the back nine fairways are starting to green up!
Greens and fairways need work
There was a water pipe break and the results are that both the greens and fairways have been overrun with weeds.
The greens have those star like weeds and the fairways and rough are overrun with crabgrass.
Cow pasture especially the greens
For first time signage was dismal. Tee boxes had not been mowed. Greens were inconsistent and rough with mixed grass and weeds.
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
Course is on the way back
After losing water on some holes for a little while water is back and work is being done. I have hope the course is on its way back to the the way it was.Golf carts are in great shape, don't give up on this corse.Everyone from pro shop to rangers were friendly All in all a good day.
WORST COURSE I'VE EVER PLAYED
STAY AWAY...THE FREENS ARE NOT TAKEN CARE OF AND HAS TO BE THE WORSE GOLF COURSE I PLAYED IN A LONG TIME. THIS COURSE SHOULDN'T BE OPENED TO THE PUBLIC. THE 12 TH HOLE IS ALL DIRT AND WEEDS. LOCE TO GET A FULL REFUND. REALLY REALLY BAD...YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
Mostly dirt group of 12 people on 1 hole
Mostly dirt, group of 12 people on 1 hole, 2 other large groups.
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 !
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 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.
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
Dirt Dirt and more Dirt. Greens ok Looks like the moon surface. Cow pasture next to course looks better.
