Countryway Golf Club is an executive golf course that is known for its extremely affordable rates. Situated in the heart of Westchase, it is considered one of the best values in Tampa Bay. The layout consists of eleven par-3 holes and seven par 4s. The golf course is challenging enough for more advanced golfers but it is still player-friendly enough for beginners to enjoy. The rolling terrain provides undulations in both the greens and fairways. The hills also make for some challenging putts. There is no shortage of water at Countryway Golf Club with hazards coming into play on 14 holes. There are also bunkers strategically placed throughout.

didn't realize it is an exec course. one long par 4, other par 4's were about 220 to 260. then 11 par 3's, most from 65 to 110 with a couple 140 and one 165.

Good to work on your iron play and for shorter hitters. the place was packed, which was nice to see.

First time playing here. If you need work on your short game this is the course to come and tune up your game. Many par 3's a few par 4's. Overall condition was very good. Great value. I also found a 5 dollar bill on the fairway!!

Pace of play depends on time of year and tee time just like with any course. I’s a really nice executive course with some challenging par 3s for the average player.

This was the second time in a week that we played. The course is great but this time there was a problem with too many bookings and carts backing up at every hole. It took us 2 1/2 hours to play 9 holes. We were so disappointed. However our grievance was addressed in a satisfactory Manor. Hopefully this was a one off situation.

That had to be the slowest round I have ever played on an extremely short course. Took about 5 hours to play a course that should have taken half of that time. Not a fun outing. Had to wait for every shot. Some holes had 5 groups waiting on the tee.

If we’re talking strictly about course conditions, then I give it 4 Stars. The greens roll fair and aren’t too patchy. Some holes are worse than others but most of them aren’t bad. The tees are nice and the fairways are lush but roll. But if we’re talking about everything else, this was one of the worst rounds I may have ever played. WARNING DO NOT PLAY THIS COURSE ON A THURSDAY. I have no idea why golf now would ever let me book a tee time 10’minutes after a huge league goes out. I understand it is an executive course but that’s all the more reasons to not allow play after those leagues. This course barely breaks 3000 yards on the entire 18 and it took me nearly 4 1/2 hours to play 14 holes. I didn’t even finish my round because daylight was running low, and I honestly was just tired of waiting. I really wish I hadn’t have used my promo code on this. Pace of play by everyone Was so slow. I would spend about 5-10 minutes on each hole and 20 minutes waiting for the next two groups to tee off on the next hole after we finished the previous hole. It was a complete waste of one of my promo codes and unfortunately I don’t think I will ever return to this course. There was no one monitoring anything going on on the course. Some of the holes didn’t even break 100 yards, but there were a couple of decent holes. I’m not trying to completely trash this course because like I said, it was half way decently kept, but my experience of my round was completely unsatisfactory.

I have played this course many times and like it to work on my short game. I'm not sure what was going on but they we're so backed up and pace of play was terrible. It took a over an hour to play the first two holes. It was over a 5 hour round when usually it is closer to 3. Otherwise it was a great day of golf there.

It’s a pretty good exec. course if they kept it up especially the greens. I don’t think they have mowed them in the last 2 weeks. The tees and fairways were below average also.

The price to play at Countryway isn't too bad, but the course is very narrow and needs a lot of help with the greens. There was only 1 or 2 really playable greens at the course. Most of the greens looked like they had did placemats for wiping your spikes and made it impossible to put. The guys that work there are extra friendly and the course was not too busy.

I have played here before and enjoyed it...but this time the greens were aerated and sanded and it made for a not as good experience.

But I would come back and give it amother go.
