Wentworth and Pebble Creek Golf Clubs Joined Soon by Crescent Oaks Golf Club

WentworthAt a time when many local golf courses are faltering in maintenance and/or management, locally owned Wentworth and Pebble Creek Golf Clubs are thriving and offering better conditions than ever at competitive prices. See some amazing Summer/Fall Specials on page 16.

Family Owned and Operated by Ace Golf

Family-owned Ace Golf is Tampa based and has been in the golf business for 18 years, setting the standard for golf courses and practice facilities in the Tampa Bay area. They own Wentworth Golf Club in Tarpon Springs/Palm Harbor, Pebble Creek Golf Club in Tampa, and the Ace Golf Ranges in Brandon and Riverview. Starting in September, the completely renovated Crescent Oaks Golf Club joins Wentworth Golf Club in Tarpon Springs as semi-private Ace Golf courses open to the public for the first time ever.

Wentworth Golf Club
Ace Golf purchased member-owned Wentworth Golf Club in the fall of 2010 and immediately reduced dues by over half. At the beginning of 2011 – for the first time in its 20-year history as a private club – Wentworth became a semi-private facility. In the past six months golfers have rushed to play this course that was never previously open to the public and membership grew 25%. One recent customer summed it up: “Wentworth was the 13th course we played in two weeks and by far the best. Everything was in ship shape condition and the greens were outstanding.”

et among million-dollar homes, this challenging Steve Smyers-designed par-71 layout captures the architect’s personal sentiments, casting a different character onto each hole. Smyers has designed several courses in our area including Old Memorial and a redesign of Isleworth Country Club in Orlando.

The Wentworth course meanders through naturally rolling terrain with abundant wildlife. Each hole is designed to challenge golfers of every skill level and there are 83 “beachy” sand bunkers. The front nine flows through stately cypress heads, majestic pines and old oaks; the back nine presents a Scottish links-style layout to test your shot making ability. Course renovations during the Summer of 2010 included the installation of all new Platinum Paspallum greens. These state-of-the-art putting surfaces roll fast and true.

The Wentworth clubhouse is an exhibit of European grandeur, its grand brick façade conjuring up visions of its English namesake and is a perfect banquet or meeting site. A new English pub is under construction and its grand opening is scheduled for late August 2011.

Pebble Creek Golf Club
Ace Golf purchased Pebble Creek Golf Club in 2005. They then spent two years and nearly $2 million renovating the golf course and clubhouse, adding new Champion Bermuda greens and tees, and all new bunkers. Renovations to the clubhouse include a new banquet facility and a new Irish Pub offering casual fare, large screen TVs, cold Guinness, a large veranda and complimentary billiards.

Pebble Creek No. 18

The 40-year old, par-71, 6,436-yard course is known as a fun layout in a preserve- like setting and as a top value among better Tampa Bay area courses. There is water on 16 holes. The course is challenging enough for the scratch golfer, yet enjoyable for the new to mid-level player. As an added bonus, golfers receive free full-screen, in-cart GPS with each round.

Crescent Oaks Golf Club
Crescent Oaks becomes semi-private, welcoming public play starting in late September following three months of extensive renovations. New Greens, manicured fairways, new carts and a renovated clubhouse await golfers. Dual memberships with sister course Wentworth Golf Club are now available and priced lower than ever.
