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.

Scotland yards

Very nice course. New grass around most greens and some fairways. The cartpath for #2 crosses in front of the green for #9. A little strange. Otherwise very fair layout.

Okay golf

You will enjoy your round of golf. Here. The greens are medium and the fairways are mostly good but there are some bare spots on a few of the holes. Normally there is heavy play with slow rounds. There are two bald eagles that enjoy flying around the lake on number one tee.

Rained out

In fairness we only got through 6 holes before we were rained out. We got a tee time on a Saturday with cart for $30. The greens were in great shape and most of the fairways leading up to green in good shape. The overall shape of course was not visually pleasing. Cart paths were non existent, and overall ambience of course lacking for me. I think they are trying to improve the course based on what I see of the greens and around it. I will give it another shot when weather is better

Improved course

Improvements are making this course more enjoyable to play. They are in the process of installing water on most of the fairways which will make the course even better. Will play again.

Great shape and getting better

Course is in great shape and with all the new irrigation they are putting in, I can see it getting better. Looks like they have put rye on the tee boxes and in front of the green. Makes it much nicer to play. 8th hole was closed today because of the irrigation they re installing but rest of the course is good.

Temp Holes

They are doing a bunch of drainage work on the course and had two temporary greens. Other than that the course is in good condition and moderately difficult. Would like to play it when all the work is done and see how it is then.

Great staff ok course

This course has no driving range and is laid out like it was added after the homes showed up. Easy course so if you need to lower your handicap this is the place. The staff were very friendly almost family owned type of vibe

Construction

Love this course, but would have liked to know before we played that hole 17 was completely closed. By the look at all the piping around there will be more holes shut down soon.
