This is one of the best and most beautiful courses in the Tampa area open to the public. Last year the course served as qualifier for the PGA Tour School. The course is situated in rolling landscape which literally gives it a third dimension and sets it apart from the flat pancake courses found elsewhere in Florida. A place in the top 100 is well deserved but should be ranked higher in my opinion. A course that strangely enough is missing entirely in the list, is Belleair Country Club in Clearwater. How is that possible? It's not only one of the oldest clubs in Florida, but they have two of the finest Donald Ross courses imaginable.
