St Petersburg Area Golf Courses
St Petersburg Golf
We spent a few days in St. Petersburg Fl and played a few golf courses in the area. We stayed at the Vinoy and played its golf course and a locals golf course at Fox Hollow. We also played one of the courses at Lake Jovita on the drive home.
We stayed at the Vinoy Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort and Golf Club. The hotel is downtown next to a marina. The hotel is a couple of blocks from many bars and restaurants. The hotel restaurants were very good, especially Marchands.
There is a lobby and outside bar. The outside bar has some fire pits. Definitely a great place to hang out and have a drink.
Vinoy Golf Course
This is a private golf course. You need to be a member or stay at the hotel to play. It’s a very typical Florida golf course. It has quite a bit of water with bunkers around the greens.
Fox Hollow Golf Club
Fox Hollow Golf Club is located in Trinity Florida, just north of St. Petersburg. This is a nice community golf course. If I lived in the area, I’d play it often.
Lake Jovita South Course
Lake Jovita is located in Dade City Florida. It’s about an hour’s drive from the Vinoy Hotel. Lake Jovita has two golf courses, the North Course and South Course. We only had time to play the South Course. We picked it based on the description from their website.
The South Course has a lot of water and some elevation changes. Be prepared for a somewhat slow round. It claims a pace of play of 4 hours and 20 minutes, but it took us 4 hours and 45 minutes.
