Florida golf

if anyone has suggestions for places to play, hubby and I are flying in to Tampa at the end of April. Prelim research looks like there are plenty of places to play for around $60/round. We may use Golf Now to book also.
So we are basically looking for places within an hour of Tampa, or possibly near Naples (may be staying there).

I'd suggest the GolfNow route

I'd suggest the GolfNow route. I've played in Tampa a couple times but mostly at local muni's. Nothing outstanding but I don't know how much golf costs where you are so here in NC, $60 gets you a REALLY nice course. Like Top 15 Public courses in the state. Take a couple hours drive and there's more than a few great ones but there's also the $$$.

Are you taking your clubs or renting? If you're playing multiple rounds, I;m sure you're taking. I found rental options to be pretty dismal so I'd take your clubs. Some courses were like "we have a few different irons that have been left here you could use for free.." No thanks.

Golf is a game that can only be played...

courses and clubs

definitely taking the clubs since we are going to try to get 4 rounds in. We arrive late morning on a Wednesday, so would try to find someplace near the hotel to get an afternoon round in. Michael has a cousin who has a weekend home in Naples, so hoping to get an invite to play at his club if he's around.
In our area, $60 gets you an average course. We aren't looking for an "experience" (ie, TPC of Tampa Bay), just some solid places to get our early season swings in.

It's not how...it's how many

I heard good things about the Dunedin Golf Club -- a regulation length muni -- and Chi Chi Rodriguez Golf
Club -- a executive length muni -- from a woman I sat beside at a couple of the Blue Jays games I attended.
