Tampa Bay Golf Tour provides information, videos of local courses

Tampa Bay Golf Tour is a one-stop guide to golf in our area. Information about every public and executive course is broken down by county and price range. Maps also are available for each course. Additionally, we are building a library of video reviews so you can see what the courses look like.

New this week

The Links of Lake Bernadette: It's a relatively short course in Zephyrhills with quirky holes that keep golfers on their toes. Some holes have severe dog legs. Some have carries over water or marsh. Some have tight fairways lined by shrubs. Two holes share a huge green. Golfers don't need to be long on this course, but they do need to be smart to score well.

New next week

The Links Golf Course: An aptly named course in Hudson. It is definitely links-style golf with most holes straight ahead. There is some elevation on the course, especially the par-4 ninth hole, which has a near 100-foot drop in the fairway to the green. There is water on a few holes and some dog legs that make tee shots difficult. The course also has a nice practice facility, with putting greens and a driving range.
