Tampa Bay and the whole of Florida are home to some of the country’s most beautiful and most sought after golf vacation destinations. It has the perfect weather, the best scenery, and a most unique and interesting natural terrain that makes golf more uniquely exciting than anywhere else in America. Most of these courses, though, only get to capture the first two and choose to rebuild the land. Only a few have perfectly put up a top quality course using Tampa Bay’s natural topography. Such is Northdale Golf and Tennis Club.
Its designer, Ron Garl, has this goal in mind when he built the course in 1977: to ‘artfully employ the unique characteristics of the natural terrain’. And this, he achieved. The Northdale Golf and Tennis Club features rolling terrains and contoured greens of USGA specifications. It plays 6,824 yards from the championship tees for a par of 72. Even after2 its most recent renovation, the principle of keeping the course as symmetrical to nature as possible was maintained. Large cypress trees, natural water features (playing on 11 of its 18 holes) and remolded bunkers all the more make the course interesting, thus making golf trips here memorable and beautiful.
As if that was not enough yet, the Northdale Golf and Tennis Club makes golf vacations even more wonderful, on top of being interesting with the best quality service and amenities anyone could ever want from a golf facility. It certainly has captured everything good about Florida golfing; no wonder it has captured the hearts of countless golfers from within and outside the Sunshine State too.
