“Wonderful golf community - great place to play”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

Lake Jovita provides 36 beautiful holes of golf and the north and south courses provide different experiences. One is neat and trim, like a country club, while the other plays a bit wilder, with tall fescue providing more of the backdrop than flowers. Both courses are excellent, well-maintained, fair, and fun.

On several visits (we go back each year), service has generally been friendly, although we've had a couple of issues inside the pro shop. Still, we do go back every year as a part of an annual trip to the Tampa area.

A quick bite to eat is available at the turn at an outdoor snack bar, or you can go inside the clubhouse and have a full meal before/after your round.

There are some houses around the course, but they never really come into play.

We were greeted by a very friendly staff throughout our check in process. We were delayed about 40 minutes due to thunderstorms, but got out on the North course and was quickly impressed by the layout and condition of the course. There are a lot of bunkers, especially fairway bunkers. Playing from the right tee box will make your game enjoyable. Cost was $63 with tax and it included range balls. We will definitely return. Can't wait to play the South Course.

Played North Course (South was hosting USGA Open qualifier). Excellent conditions and traditional layout with elevation changes and exceptional greens (ran 12 on stimp while we were there). Houses set back from course do not come into play. Great golf experience and plan to return for a round on South course. Great track.

The 3-bedroom villas were very clean and well maintained -- Sharon was very helpful in helping us book the trip and setting up the tee times. We played both the North and South Course, which were in tremendous shape. Some of the best greens I have ever played. The service was fantastic, both in the golf shop and the restaurant. Will definitely be back!
