Northdale Golf & Tennis Club
Northdale Golf Club was designed to give every level of golfer an enjoyable experience. Located in Tampa, Florida, this championship par 72 course was designed by Ron Garl. He made strategic use of water and bunkers to make the course quite challenging and still player friendly depending on your tee selection. The greens are large and each designed with its own natural character. Northdale's own Bushy Creek winds its way through the course and joins a series of small lakes and unspoiled wooded areas. Natural cedar, oak and pine trees surround each hole throughout the course. Northdale offers enjoyable golf with a strong hint of natural outdoor pleasantry. Northdale is conveniently located just 12 miles north of Tampa International Airport
The course was in good condition however their course management leaves much to be desired. After braving the cold on VETERANS DAY and arriving 30 minutes prior to our tee time and finding out no one else was there we were given the lead off spot on the course. Even though we had a newbie with us we finished the front 9 in right around 2 hours and did the right thing at the turn and let the 3 some behind us through. Much to our dismay when we arrived at the tee box there was a foursome there that the starter sent off the back. They let the 3 some play and we were BEHIND them. We called the club house to ask how and why did this happen only to be put on hold and never responded to. Our next step was a trip back to the club house and the starter readily admitted he made a mistake of letting the foursome off the back and the only thing we could get out of the counter person was "go back to the 10th Tee and tee off and if you catch the foursome we will advise them to let you through" This is not how you manage a golf course nor treat your customers. It took two emails to the GM to get a response and he started his response off with “I did receive your email and apologize for not replying sooner but it was because I didn’t feel this response would help the situation.” So we all know that in this particular situation the GM was not going to accept responsibility for poor decision making by his folks even though his starter clearly stated that he should not have allowed that group to go off the back and tee off before we did.
This is a good little course in the naghborhood and the prices are low. I last fall I played here alot but recently I've had problems with managers. If you have a real problem with something that happened they will tell you to leave instead of trying to resolve anything. Proshop manager is nice but the guys he plays with after work will tell you were to put you "ball" for no real reason. All well he pretends like it's his first time on the course.
Worth the price but I'd rather pay a few extra bucks to go to a nice course.
