With such ideal weather year-round, Tampa is a great place for a round or two of golf. TPC Tampa Bay, which has hosted the PGA Tour Champions event for more than 20 years, is among the city's most popular courses. It features an 18-hole course designed by Bobby Weed, with Chi-Chi Rodriguez as player consultant. Recent golfers praised the helpful staff and enjoyed the as-advertised challenging course. 

Another popular course is Saddlebrook Resort, which features two courses designed by Arnold Palmer. Recent visitors said the courses are beautiful and well-maintained. The Copperhead Course at Innisbrook Golf Resort is equally revered for players and spectactors who flock to the course for the annual Valspar Championship. 

Hours and green fees vary by course. Visit the Tampa tourism website for more information on area golf courses.
