Rocky Point Golf Course Renovation Complete
All 18 holes open for play December 4th

TAMPA, FL., December 1, 2015- After going through a seven month, $ 700,000 renovation, the Rocky Point Golf Course will reopen all 18 holes this Friday, December 4th. The par 71, 6,315 yard course, located at 4151 Dana Shores Drive, is owned by the City of Tampa and managed by the Tampa Sports Authority (TSA).  

This major renovation includes all new TifEagle greens, new tee boxes, Celebration Bermuda grass surrounds plus new greenside and fairway bunkers. The renovation also includes enhanced features, such as new retaining walls and landscaping. All these changes combine to make Rocky Point a course that is challenging and enjoyable, as well as very aesthetically pleasing. 

“ We are extremely proud of this complete makeover of Rocky Point and the difference it will make for every golfer’s experience,” said Kennie Sims, TSA’s Vice President of Golf Operations, “These renovations combined with our driving range and clubhouse facilities make Rocky Point a desirable destination for golfers of all levels.” 

“This overall modernization of the course will make Rocky Point one of the premier public golf courses in this region,” said Eric Hart, TSA’a President/CEO, “we are very appreciative to the City of Tampa for their continued commitment to public golf and providing the support to maintain the quality of our 3 public golf courses.”
