Rogers Park Golf Course has given Tampa’s golfers a chance to sink some putts since it opened back in 1952. Now, a nine-hole Par 3 course is joining the historic 18-hole course at 7911 N. 30th St. Here’s some need-to-know information:

  • The project has been almost three years in the making after construction was delayed by Hurricane Ian, which washed away seeds and stopped grass from growing last winter.
  • Each hole is between 60 and 120 yards, but was designed by renowned architects to be challenging with interesting green layouts and classic golfing hazards.
  • The course offers a great way to get out there without needing hours of free time — it should only take about an hour to get through all nine holes.
  • The public can start playing this Sunday, Nov. 5.
  • A driving range with floodlights is also set to open at Rogers Park some time next year.
