TPC Tampa Bay


When architect Bobby Weed first surveyed the property for the design of TPC Tampa Bay, he chose a horse to be his all terrain vehicle across wetlands and open flats of native grasses. After moving hundreds of thousands of yards of dirt and adding 17 years of maturity for the native cypress, oaks and pines surrounding the wetlands and bunkers, TPC Tampa Bay has evolved into one of the most beautiful and exciting courses in Florida.

Since being built in 1991, the facility has earned numerous accolades, including a four and a half star rating in Golf Digest’s Places to Play. It has annually been voted the top golf course in the Tampa Tribune’s Readers Choice Awards and has also been named the top golf facility in West Central Florida and one of the top five in the State by the readers of Florida Golf Magazine.

TPC Tampa Bay was Rated #13 Best Public Golf Facility by GolfWorld Magazine's 2010 Reader's Choice Poll.

The 18 hole, par 71 TPC Tampa Bay course was designed by Bobby Weed with Chi Chi Rodriguez as player consultant. It was designed not only to challenge the top golfers of the world, but also to provide a challenging and fun experience for players of all abilities. The course gives the players the opportunity to play well within their game, with a variety of teeing areas that allow the course to be played from 5,036 yards from the forward tees to 6,898 yards from the championship tees.

The course is routed around natural wetlands, cypress heads and numerous ponds and lagoons, which are home to an abundance of wildlife. Deer, foxes, otters, armadillos, alligators, egrets, storks, cranes, blue heron, and eagles all inhabit the golf course. This natural setting and wildlife variety is the reason why TPC Tampa Bay is one of the only two courses in the Tampa Bay area to be designated as an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary. For more information on the Audubon Society, please see here. All of these elements contribute to make a superior experience.

What People Are Saying

 

"I was SO impressed with TPC Tampa Bay’s personal service, care of the patrons and the conditions of the course that I decided to purchase my membership at TPC Tampa Bay while maintaining an active membership at another club.

Brad Holcombe | TPC Tampa Bay Legacy Member

"TPC Tampa Bay obviously is known for being a great golf course. But the membership experience is more than just the golf course; it is the people who operate the club that make it special. Every employee is genuinely invested in providing an outstanding guest experience. Each area of the club excels at providing the best service and products available."

Jon VanNevel | TPC Tampa Bay Legacy Member

"The entire staff at TPC Tampa Bay has been exemplary in supporting our Birdies for the Brave program. Throughout each and every year, Randy Laight, Justin Wink, and former General Manager Brady Boyd have gone the extra mile to ensure we our fundraising events were successful. Without their help we would not remain in the top three Birdies for the Brave fundraisers, nationwide. Thank you TPC Tampa Bay for supporting our troops."

Tom Gates | TPC Tampa Bay Vantage Member

"Always a great experience played it three times can't wait to get back! I made a great par as the ball seem to go faster uphill - they ran true and fast."

Jeff Bryan | Played TPC Tampa Bay

"It had been 12 years since the last time I played TPC Tampa Bay and it was nice to see things better then ever. Great track to play - the hidden TPC gem. Shots into the green must be played to right area. Wonderful shape with the over seed. Huge range, big putting green, and short game area. You can see why it's one of the best Sr. Tour stops."

Eric Gunn | Played TPC Tampa Bay

"Always wanted to play since visiting from Texas for the past 10 years. Finally got my chance and it was well worth it. Beautiful course, fairways were perfect. Great experience, I will play it again. Fun track. Everything was in beautiful shape."

LC Fleck | Played TPC Tampa Bay

"Awesome greens! It was a thrill to play on this course. I loved the greens...they were in perfect condition. I will be back."

John H. | Played TPC Tampa Bay

"Impressed! As a first-time player of TPC Tampa Bay, I found it to be quite enjoyable. Nice layout and decent fairways. Greens were great! Nice speed and putts rolled out nicely. Very professional staff from curbside, to pro shop to starter. Looking forward to another round on my next visit to the Tampa/St Pete area."

Paul | Played TPC Tampa Bay

"Beautiful course to kick your butt. Very beautiful place with lots of wildlife. Course is perfectly manicured and lots of water and sand."

Jenny F. | Played TPC Tampa Bay

"One of the best courses I have ever played! I can't say enough about TPC Tampa Bay. Course conditions were very good, service from everyone was outstanding, and pro shop was stocked with lots of great merchandise. We will definitely play here again on our next golf trip to the Tampa Bay area."

Al D. | Played TPC Tampa Bay

"Excellent course, pro shop, and staff! We had a great experience at this course. It is challenging with plenty of sand and water to avoid. From the pro shop, the starter, the scorecards, the amenities along the course and the overall care of the course, were well worth the price you pay! And if you feel up to playing it after you are done the first 18, you can go again. We opted not to, but definitely considered it. Have fun if you decide to golf this course!!!"

Nettiez | Played TPC Tampa Bay

" We played a foursome in Tampa. We have been coming to Florida for last 10 years and have been to many places to play golf but the staff at your course (TPC Tampa Bay) treated us by far the best we have ever been treated. We played on Sunday and had not made a tee time for Tuesday; we came back to play again on Tuesday and the guys in the Pro Shop, starter and grill were just great. We're from Tennessee and can't thank you enough for the great experience. "

Doug Mcafee | Played TPC Tampa Bay

"One of the best courses anywhere, not just Tampa! TPC Tampa Bay is a fantastic golf course! I've played here many times and you won't be disappointed. The course hosts a Champions Tour event and rightly so. Make sure to play the correct yardage to fit your game. The greens and tees are always in good shape too. Food in the grill is excellent as well. Enjoy!"

Douglas S. | Played TPC Tampa Bay

"An 18 hole, par 71 course in Lutz. Home to the Outback Steakhouse Pro-Am on the Champion's Tour. The course has undulating fairways and greens and plenty of water. One of the toughest daily fee courses in the area."

Rodney Page | Played TPC Tampa Bay

"Like the clubhouse, the practice facility at the TPC Tampa Bay is first class. Two teeing areas on either side of the putting green overlook an expansive field of target greens and flags. At the back of the practice facility there is an area designated for pitching, chipping, and bunker play."

Jay Mankus | Golf Writer, Golf Now Florida.com

"I would like to take this opportunity to commend the staff of TPC Tampa Bay for their concern, professional manner, and their understanding of a medical problem my playing partner and I encountered at your course. Your staff is a credit to the true meaning of customer service------Thank you!"

Fred Hoffs | Played TPC Tampa Bay

"What a great course, very challenging for me but everything was perfect. The must have 3 or 4 putted at least 6 greens because I wasn't use to the speed. I will definitely hit more practice putts next time a play.Player Tip: Downhill putts are fast, try not to putt them off the green like I did a few times."

BirdieManSmith | Review from golfadvisor.com

"One of the best places to play in Tampa! We were fortunate to have beautiful weather and the course did not disappoint. It was in flawless condition with smooth and fast greens. Can't wait to go back!"

Daniel9960639 | Review from golfadvisor.com

"Only 15 minutes from the airport, TPC Tampa Bay is a must play. The name TPC alone sets the stage for what you can expect. When you enter the facility the staff is overwhelmingly nice. Everything on the practice area and golf course were pristine. I have had the chance to play a lot of great golf courses, and these greens might have been the best conditioned greens I have ever played on. They stated they were running at 12.5 and there was 100% truth behind that, without a blemish on a single green. As a wise man once said, the course overall was challenging but score-able if you keep in the short grass. If anyone was within a day drive of this golf course, I would highly recommend it to all. Player Tip: Some slopes on the green are very subtle and definitely watch your speed on downhill putts."

KyleEarleyPGA | Review from golfadvisor.com

"Greens are fast, course is immaculate even in early winter, and the course staff is friendly - this track makes for a great day of golf. From the blues, we were surprised how long the course played. Some par 4s were a solid wood or more away even after a strong tee shot. Par 3s were long and challenging but wide near the greens that allowed me to recover a few misguided shots. This place is absolutely one of the best courses in Florida."

Jrod24 | Review from golfadvisor.com

"This was a great course. I really enjoyed the course conditions and I will definitely make my way back. Friendly staff, great food."

TampaGolfer123 | Review from golfadvisor.com

"Both the practice areas and the golf course are in top condition and the greens play very firm, fast and true. Make no mistake, this course plays long from the blue tees...especially the closing stretch to get to the clubhouse. Fairway metals, hybrids and long irons will get plenty of action unless you have significant length with the driver. The TPC brand really does mean quality across the board and is never a negative experience for the above average player. "

Wright2k | Review from golfadvisor.com

"From start to finish this course offers challenges on almost every shot. Almost literally, miss the dead center of the fairway and you'll have a non-level lie. A few wide fairways off the tee, but second shots almost all have a very narrow target area. Miss the green and there's deep rough, mounds and traps. Greens were in great condition and very fast. Most are large and have a ridge or tier. A few greens and depending on the pin position, might be on the green but have no line to the pin. And there are a few "false fronts" and elevated greens. A tough course for me, but I always enjoy playing a course where the pros have played a tournament. Excellent practice areas and usually easy to get a tee time."

Papabeargolf | Review from golfadvisor.com

"TPC Great for Ladies! A great course always in impecable condition. One of the best in the area. Tee boxes well designed for various skill levels."

FLTennis1 | Review from tripadvisor.com

"Excellence in GOLF. One of the best courses in the Tampa Bay area. Always in excellent shape; Fantastic greens. Great Staff! Need I say More??"

Dennis M | Review from tripadvisor.com

"Great course for the cost. I had read a couple of reviews and wasn't sure about going here, I went online and was able to play for $70 so I tried it. The staff were very friendly, there was not much play due to cloudy skies so I played alone. This course was very well maintained, this is also my kind of course, very challenging and what you see off the tee is what you get, you could see the best place to hit it and how you should play the hole, I shot 2 over par and it was the first time I had ever layed eyes on it, i do have a low handicap but I know what brings all types of golfers to a course, I would go play here anytime I am in the area, please take the chance and go play you want be sorry, by the way it took me 1 hr and 45 minutes to play 18 holes and that's not rushing."

thinla | Review from tripadvisor.com

"Impressed! First time player of TPC Tampa and I found it to be quite enjoyable. Nice layout and decent fairways. Greens were great! Nice speed and putts rolled out nicely. Some of the tees were a little thin. Coming from CT I didn't think the greens fees were inflated. I had no problem paying the $110 and they gave me a couple of cards to return by end of year at a discount. Very professional staff from curbside, to Proshop to Starter. Looking forward to another round on my next visit to the Tampa/St Pete area."

TallPaulv01 | Review from tripadvisor.com

"Great course. Even with nasty rain, this course is always in excellent condition, very good test and great service by staff."

Mulletlk | Review from tripadvisor.com

"A must play at least once. What can I say...A Champions course. Beautiful sand, water, rolling fairways. Well maintained. I was quite impressed and one of the highlights of my vacation."

Itching2Travel_97 | Review from tripadvisor.com

"Gorgeous course, great weather- a perfect January day. Played 18 holes on this beautiful course and enjoyed great birdwatching along with the golf. Course is extremely well maintained, challenging but accessible. Pro shop very helpful with rental clubs."

Drakdama | Review from tripadvisor.com

"A Dream. Played January 2015 HCP 19th Incredibly friendly staff, the customer is taken care of. The fairways a dream, the tee boxes are like combed to play the greens fast and with great caution. Only lanes 2 and 11 (both par 3) do not have water, otherwise it is always watching. The place is very long and it is therefore recommended not quite unnecessarily hard to make life and play from the front tees. Then you just get the real pleasure of this place. It is a TPC course and he is its claim necessarily play when you are there, every dollar's worth it. We were already the second time here and would come back even for the third time."

jack200106 | Review from 1Golf.eu

" I like to go to different Golf courses, but of course this is one of my favorites. Very scenic....and of course the grounds are extremely well kept."

PamPicks13 | Review from tripadvisor.com

"Nice TPC course and staff! We played the course this month while visiting Tampa for New Years. It is kept in good condition, and enjoyable. The staff is extrememly helpful. My friend injured his arm on the range and we "tried" to play 2 holes before he had to leave to go to ER. I was disappointed, but hoped he would be better so we could play before we left! Justin Wink is the head pro, and was very understanding and helpful! He gave us directions to the nearest hospital, and told us we could get a rain check. Fortunately after anti-inflammatories, and a lot of ice on the arm he was able to play at the end of the week!! YEA...so we got to enjoy the course! We had a sandwich at the pro shop, which was made fresh, and very good! I would definitely go back when visiting Tampa."

Njoylivn | Review from tripadvisor.com

"A must play. What a great, well-kept course and unforgiving to errant shots. The clubhouse is magnificent and the staff is very accommodating."

Randy S | Review from tripadvisor.com

"Great course. Had the chance to play today and after 3pm 59bucks where can you play a tpc for 59$ that tour pros play. It was in great shape, saw a few gators out there, very nice staff I will be back."

Steve Z | Review from tripadvisor.com

"Great golf course. Challenging, fast greens (small), need to play course management or you can lose a lot of balls. Watch out for gators"

Bernard L | Review from tripadvisor.com

"TPC Tampa Golf Course. Very nice golf course when in tournament conditions. Nice to play a course where the Pros play. Facilities very nice. "

harste | Review from tripadvisor.com

" TPC Tampa Bay is a MUST play. The course was played two days after the seniors tourney and we had very similar conditions. We got in 2 rounds that day and everything was perfect. The staff go way out of their way to accomodate. Rich Gawlik (staff)was very knowledgable and super friendly. The employees are so dedicated here that you often see them at the course on their days off!!! If you are in Tampa this is a must play."

Bykcop | Review from tripadvisor.com

"Excellent course worth the price. This is an excellent course with first-class practice facilities and very helpful pro staff. The course is well crafted (lots of water) and is challenges for golfers of all skill levels. This is a memorable course that is worth a little more for the great experience. Also, food at the restaurant is quite good."

prmcc202 | Review from tripadvisor.com

"Average golfers should use white tees. Greens are excellent. Well maintained and designed course. Fair, but challenging. "

Rob H | Review from tripadvisor.com

"Great golf and lunches. We have played the course several times and it is a great layout and all golfers should play it when they can. Prices are very reasonable also. We have had lunch there several times as well and always were happy."

Gary D | Review from tripadvisor.com

"Great golf course. TPC Tampa Bay is an excellent golf course. It is a challenging layout for any golfer, yet is a playable golf course. The staff is very good, and the club house is excellent. We were through an unfortunate situation late for our tee time, but they were accommodating and got us out on the course. Their facilities are excellent and the course is well maintained. This course hosts the Outback Steakhouse Pro-Am, a Champions Tour event, and you can tell why when you play this golf course. It is an enjoyable experience and I recommend this golf course."
