Pleasant, low-key Florida golf awaits at Pebble Creek Golf Club

Located just north of Tampa, Pebble Creek Golf Club is a traditional, player-friendly, favorite area course.

Opened in 1967, the course was designed by Bill Amick and plays through mossy oaks and small ponds in a quiet, residential neighborhood. Some gentle doglegs and raised, well guarded greens help keep the 6,500-yard course a challenge to the modern game.

The par-4 18th hole is especially demanding, as it requires a long carry on the approach shot over a creek to an elevated green.

Pebble Creek Golf Club has undergone some enhancements in recent years, including the installation of brand new Champions Bermuda greens. Additionally, golf carts feature GPS, and the clubhouse has recently undergone improvements as well, including new function space.

Brandon Tucker is the Sr. Managing Editor for GolfPass and was the founding editor of Golf Advisor in 2014, he was the managing editor for Golf Channel Digital's Courses & Travel. To date, his golf travels have taken him to over two dozen countries and nearly 600 golf courses worldwide. While he's played some of the most prestigious courses in the world, Tucker's favorite way to play the game is on a great muni in under three hours.
