Imperial Lakewoods Golf Club - Tampa Bay's Favorite Golf Course Keeps Getting Better

Imperial Lakewoods Golf Club - Tampa Bay’s Favorite Golf Course Keeps Getting BetterDynamic course design, impeccable conditioning and a friendly, welcoming atmosphere are just a few of the pleasures that await you at Imperial Lakewoods Golf Club. Combine those with reasonable rates and a convenient location and you will understand why golfers have returned again and again to play this golf gem in northern Manatee County.

The Cueto family has owned and operated the property since 1993, and many of the employees have been there for all of those 16 years. Some of the grounds crew have worked every inch of the property and their commitment to excellence ensures that the course is always in great condition. It is one of the reasons why Imperial Lakewoods Golf Club is always ranked as one of the area’s best courses and one of the Tampa Bay area’s favorite places to play.

The dedication to continuously improve the course is a source of family pride. The attention to detail throughout the property becomes obvious as you play the course that stretches over more than 500 beautifully wooded acres with 16 lakes, majestic maples, large oaks, swaying palms, and rolling terrain. An on-going program of introducing new plants and trees adds interest and challenges for the frequent golfer.

Imperial Lakewoods Golf ClubSeveral holes have been redesigned over the past few years, creating an unpretentious and progressive design that places a premium on skill but doesn’t punish the higher handicap players. Imperial Lakewoods plays comfortably from the red or senior (silver) tees and is an enjoyable and fair course from the white tees. Conversely, the course can be difficult from the tips, testing professional or low-handicap players.

The 18th hole is the signature hole at Imperial Lakewoods Golf Club, and has been ranked as one of the best par-5s in Florida several years in a row. At 600 yards from the back tees, this hole requires a long, accurate drive, an equally precise second shot, and a perfect third shot to a green with water left, woods right, and a bunker in front. Not that the hole isn’t difficult enough, but don’t forget to check out the wind, which is always blowing hard off Imperial Lake. When you finish this hole you’ll understand the frequent comparisons to the famous 18th at Pebble Beach Golf Links.

The numerous upgrades and improvements are not limited to the golf course. The latest additions include new shelters and bathrooms on the course and a brand new fleet of golf cars.

And, since you are sure to use every club in your bag on this course, the club offers an area to practice before you play, including a grass tee driving range; practice bunker and putting and chipping areas; as well as the expertise of three PGA golf professionals to help with your game. Private golf instruction and clinics are available and the pros can also help set up your next tournament or league.
