Well maintained

The course is very well maintained. As a woman the red tee boxes are a bit long, but really enjoyed the round. The staff is was extremely friendly and accomodating.

Nice layout but pricey for over sanded greens

The course overall has a nice layout and was in good shape. With the greens being over sanded , I wouldn’t have paid full price to play.

Underwhelmed

I was expecting a more professional and upscale club. Do not get me wrong the course staff and facilities were all good. I was expecting the club to represent St. Petersburg in a more upscale manner.

Overall for the money doesn’t get much better. Great layout and greens are in good shape. The amenities are not the best but who cares.

Course is in great shape!

It’s been a few years since I’ve played St Pete CC and am glad to report that the course was in great shape! They are making improvements still and I’m excited for the future. COVID-19 had restrictions for the dining area so we did not get to experience.

Finally Played

Well I've been wanting to play this course for a while and I was truly impressed. Course was in excellent shape! No browned out tee boxes or soggy fairways. Greens had a slight build up of sand but they rolled true. Great job goes to the Course Maintenance Crew. This has got to be one of my all time favorite course layouts. Just enough changeling holes but not to many that you become irritated. Gotta love the wide open fairways of the traditional golf courses with smaller greens that you can see and aren't elevated as tall as a house. Will be back just wish I didn't live at the top of Pinellas County.

Great condition

Tee box, fairways and greens were in really nice condition. Practice range has complimentary balls which is a big bonus. Definitely worth playing again and again
