Cove Cay Golf Club
Cove Cay Golf Club is located along the shores of Tampa Bay, offering scenic views and abundant wildlife. Water is a prominent feature on the golf course, coming into play on 12 holes. The course is tight with narrow, tree-lined fairways and several tricky dogleg holes. In addition to all of the water hazards, there are also deep bunkers lining the greensides. At 6,000 yards, it is not a long course by any means but what it lacks in length it makes up for in shot-making challenges. Thanks to its length though, it can usually be played in under four hours. The layout features a diverse set of hazards that will require the use of every club in your bag. Cove Cay Golf Club's signature hole is the par-5 17th. This dramatic hole runs alongside the bay, making accuracy a necessity in order to reach the small peninsula green.

The course is a nice layout and is in pretty good shape. Some of the greens were still healing from airifying but for the price it was a really good value. I will go play it again.
That is great to hear Troy. Thanks!
Played early morning before hot part of day. Course in great condition from tee box to greens. Very consistent play from wet morning nag to hot dry 11 am finish. Sand traps very good condition considering very wet weather recently. Pace of play was great finished in a little over 3 hours. Will play again in early morning.
Awesome! Thanks Richard and we hope to see you again soon.
Nice as always
I play here at least once a week. Good course like always. It’s a very hard par 70. Definatly not a easy course. People are great though. There was a little confusion about the raincheck. One person tells me one thing and when I go to turn it in Thisbe person was telling me somthing different. I paid for 18 got to play 9 got rained out after front 9. So when u get a raincheck and go back to play the back 9 why should I have to pay another 7 dollars?
Hi Eric. I'm guessing you played the first time either after noon or before our winter rates kicked in. Time of day definitely changes price by a little bit.
Summer in Florida had great deals. This was no exception. A few greens could of been in better shape.
Understood and thanks! We are working on them.
good course would recommend to any intermediate player or average player also well kept grees and fairways plenty of challenges. Will play again
Thanks so much!
Very friendly staff
Constantly improving the course
Definitely worth a try
Thank you so much!
Well worth playing!
Very nice course, but very few yardage markers. Without GPS, it was hard to determine distances.
Good note. Thanks so much. We would like to take credit for making your round even more challenging, but it wasn't intended. Thanks for the review!
It's in Rough Shape
Unless you get it for $15 or less, it's not worth playing here. Most of the Tees, Fairways, Rough, Bunkers and Greens are in pretty rough shape. Bunkers were full of water from 2" of rain the previous day; but did not appear to have been raked at all for some time. Did not see a single maintenance worker. Did not see a water jug on the front nine. Course is short and narrow in a lot of places; some holes layouts quirky. Views are nothing exceptional. And when they tell you the greens have all healed from aerification, don't believe him.
Going to have to beg to differ with this. Our course is in excellent shape but we have had a ton of rain and do have a drainage issue in our bunkers that we're working on. The greens are wonderful but we have a couple that still are a work in progress. Sorry to hear you had a bad round!
A GREAT DAY!!!
The course was really in good shape. The greens were slow because we started earlier in the day the pace was great.. the course sped up a little bit and when I got to the 18th hole the conditions were perfect. On the 18th hole I hit my first hole in one. This course is always in great shape thank you to the staff.
Good course, room for improvements
Picked this course for play on our mini vacation. Course was in decent shape. Greens were good overall and ran true. We enjoyed the layout.
Course could use 2 more water stations, 1 on each 9.
We did not have a beverage cart on the course which was disappointing but I understand they usually do.
The staff was very friendly and we overall enjoyed our round. Would definitely play here again.
Glad you found us and hope you enjoyed your mini vacation. YES! We are working on improvements daily. So sorry you didn't see the beverage cart while you were out because, typically, it's out daily between 11am and 6pm.
Nice course for the money
Nice course, still some greens that need help, friendly staff.
You're the best. Thanks so much!
Target golf course
I have played at Cove Cay many times. The greens were in much better shape than the last time we played. The course is always challenging and rewarding to play.
So glad you noticed the improvements. Thanks for the review!
Fun layout. Not a long course. Greens run well. Fairways and surrounding areas a little scruffy. But for 35$ on a Saturday 8am tee time....
Hi Mark. Glad to hear you had fun!
Hmm. What can we do to improve the rating Marcus? We have been working on conditions but it is summer so the heat takes a toll.
Yet to be disappointed at Cove Cay
Great conditions great views.
Thank you so much! We appreciate the review and feedback.
Glad you enjoyed your round. Thanks for visiting!
