What is it about the changing colors of the trees that makes us so nostalgic? When fall rolls around, some people might think of pumpkin-spiced lattes, but I always think of late-evening golf rounds with my family. It's the perfect time of year to make memories that will last a lifetime.
If you're looking for a course to strengthen the bond with your family, TPC Tampa Bay is the place. Peak season rounds can cost $160, but starting Sept. 21, you can play for $80 after 3 p.m. Even better, it will only cost $20 for juniors.
Some of my fondest memories from my youth are playing golf with my dad after school. I can remember playing until dark on the crisp fall evenings, and then going out to dinner afterward to boast about our great shots and laugh at our not-so-great ones.
The 18-hole, par-71 TPC Tampa Bay course was designed by Bobby Weed and Chi Chi Rodriguez. It was designed not only to challenge the top golfers of the world, but also to provide a challenging and fun experience for players of all abilities.
The course gives players the opportunity to play well within their game, with a variety of teeing areas that allow it to be played from 5,036 yards from the forward tees to 6,898 yards from the championship tees.
Although he out-drove me, TPC Tampa Bay's variety of teeing ground would have been a great spot to challenge my dad for a match! I always took our bets very seriously, but in reality, he would always take me for ice cream no matter what.
Start making memories with your family this fall at TPC Tampa Bay.
