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.

I play this course quite a bit not too sure who the ranger was but was extremely rude it was on a par-3 which most of this course is I was trying to tee off and he decided to park his cart in the Fairway and take pictures about a hundred fifty yards out anybody that plays and is an amateur nose you hit the ball where your eyes go and when somebody's in Your Vision like that that's where you're going to hit not to the green or it's not going to be the shot you want so I asked him to move he refused twice and sure shooting I hit the ball next to him pretty much had to let him know that he was in the wrong and I was going to report him and I will never play this course again when you can play Westchase at a Twilight for $15 and it's right around the corner

We have played Countryway many times. It's a great value and a pretty good challenge for your short to medium range game. You will need to be accurate, and if you are not, you will lose some balls in the water or the woods. The staff has always been friendly and accomodating. For the price, I don't think there is a better course in the Tampa Bay area.

Played the course several years ago and it was in rough shape. Had the opportunity to play the course this year and I really enjoyed the experience. The staff was freindly, course layout is great and the putts rolled true on the greens. I would definitely recommend this course to my friends.

It was our first time playing and what a treat. Had nice homemade lunch and went out for a great afternoon of golf on a well-manicured course. Not too difficult but challenging enough to make you think about your shot. Almost had my first hole in one.

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.
