Though not long in length it had a great mix of holes. Short par 4s but had to lay up because of water hazards and long par 3s. Greens had a lot of slope and were very difficult if you got out of position. Will recommend

In all fairness they did have a drought going on but the greens were terrible painted to look green Fairways were all dried out no grass whatsoever and they also had a train running through the golf course! Never again save your money!

Response from Clearwater Country Club on 06/02/2017:

Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. We apologize the course conditions weren't up to par during your round. We are in the process of fertilizing the putting surfaces at Clearwater Country Club. In an effort to ensure the most uniform application humanly possible, a green indicator dye is added so the spray technician is able to see the work being performed. This indicator dye is essentially high concentration food coloring and not a paint. A paint or heavy dye would interfere with the foliar uptake of any nutrients or plant protectants being applied. So rest assured, if you see green dye on the course this is being done to prevent disease and make for healthy turf. Nothing is being painted to hide a problem. We hope you give us another shot in the future. Thanks for playing!

I was fortunate to book an early round at Clearwater that was great for my schedule. Our group was joined by a local player, Al who knew all the in's and outs of the course.Despite the 7:15 tee time, plenty of players already out there. Good group, good pace, around 3.5 hours. Fairways were in better shape than many other courses, greens were slow, showing signs of fungus. Staff was friendly and efficient.

Florida is dry right now, so the course wasn't in the best shape. Some of the greens were a little rough, but overall a great value for the money.

Staff were very friendly especially the starter. Although the course was dry it was fairly green given the warm dry weather over the last few months. The Bermuda grass still grabs your club! There are a few areas where you must be very cognizant of players on adjacent holes. We were waiting in the middle of #8 for a group to in front of us when a drive off the seventh tee missed my partner's head by a foot. There was no "fore" warning. The course does have numerous areas screened around tee boxes and some greens. The course booklet is very helpful and yardages accurate. Always locate the embedded yardage marker on the tee as the blocks at times are more than ten yards different. The carts look brand new. The facilities are pleasant and well kept.

enjoyed the course. 3rd time playing it and thought the course was in good condition compared to other golf courses within 10 miles of it. some other courses are not as well kept as this one and this actually had grass on the fairways.
