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.

Peaceful Visions

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.

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.

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
