Florida Golf Course Review

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Fox Hollow is proud to announce the completion of the reconstruction of all of the Greenside and Fairway bunkers on the golf course, which began in September.

Quality Grassing and Development has performed the work on all 56 bunkers on the course. This bunker restoration project follows a recent project in which all the greens were re-surfaced with state-of-the-art Paspalum grass. Every bunker now has new drainage and new state of the art G Angle sand. The new G-Angle sand, which is crushed sand, results in a significant reduction in buried lies, and also is less prone to washout damage from thunderstorms. The focus of the project has been to restore the visual impact, provide the best playing surface, and improve the maintainability of the bunkers.

Come out and experience them for yourself!

Fox Hollow Golf Club is a Robert Trent Jones Sr. masterpiece that has become one of the Tampa Bay area's favorite places to play. Always open to the golfing public, this 18-hole championship facility in Trinity - just 20 miles northwest of Tampa, boasts fine amenities including a pro shop, locker rooms with showers and a restaurant/lounge that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner menus. Banquet/outing facilities are on property and there also is a targeted grass range, short game area with sand bunker and spacious putting green.

The layout features some outstanding golf holes including a nice group of par threes, two of which have water in play on three sides. The contoured fairways of the par fours and fives are lined with intricate sand bunkers which are built into perimeter mounding complexes. The raised, large undulating greens are also well protected by sand traps, and by mound that often slope off in back and on the sides.

In total, there are 56 soft sand bunkers in play along the fairways or greenside, on this layout which meanders through an upscale residential community. The design is links inspired with wide landing zones and sparse tree and plant growth. Ponds and lakes come into play often. There are nine such hazards on property. Five sets of tees set to to allow golfers of all abilities to choose a set that fits their game. The black tees measure 7138 yards with a 134 slope, while alternate sets play to distances and slope measuring 6801 yards/130 slope, 6402 yards/125 slope, 6018 yards/122 slope for men and 137 for women, and 5203 yards with a slope of 125 for ladies hitting from the red tee areas. Two sets of Junior tees - with a dedicated score card are also located on each hole.

Hole number four presents a risk/reward opportunity inviting players to bite off as much of this dogleg left (around a lake) as they dare - and the short par four 13th does likewise. The par five fifteenth bends left to right and also invites golfers to shorten the hole around a lake. There are only a couple of forced carries on the entire course however, and they are reasonable in length.

Players will find the course well marked as yardages are posted on the fairways in the form of blocks and stakes at 100, 150 and 200 yards. Sprinkler heads are measured to the center of the green, and color coded flags indicate front, middle and back pin placements. Rear covers are standard on all carts, providing protection for clubs during inclement weather. Nice course, well conditioned, good people...we highly recommend a round here. Stay & play packages can be arranged with Homewood Suites in Port Richey, and the Tampa North Suncoast Residence Inn.
