Located just minutes from the beach, the conveniently situated Clearwater Country Club sprawls across a coastal landscape of Spanish moss-draped trees and towering, mature oaks. Stevenson Creek meanders through the golf course, coming into play on six holes. Built in 1920, the layout has a traditional design that is challenging but fair. The course is tight but it plays long, especially on the par 5s. The rolling fairways are well manicured and the greens play at medium speed and are consistently well maintained. Clearwater C.C. actually has a reputation amongst locals for its superb conditions. It is also popular with visitors, snowbirds specifically, since the club offers the area's only seasonal and short-season membership with exclusive privileges. It is also one of the few clubs in the area that allows walking.

Very Enjoyable Round of Golf

My wife and I are vacationing at Clearwater Beach from Texas. This is the closest golf course to our hotel. It is challenging, but also fair. Most fairways are wide. The grounds are well kept, including tee boxes, fairways, and greens. The staff is friendly. We had a wonderful day golfing on a cool, windy, sunny day. We highly recommend this course. If we are ever in the area again, we will golf here.

Decent Course for the Money time

This is the second time we played here. Near Clearwater Beach so it tends to get a lot of play. Good enough if you’re looking for something close by and they have decent push carts if you a
don’t want to ride.

Nice Course

The course is nice and well maintained. Today the ground was soft due to the amount of rain they in the last few days. Several holes run along the roadways and there is a lot of noise which can be annoying for some people. Some holes are close so you have to watch the oncoming golfers for stray balls.

A fun course in the “city”

We went off at 7:20am. Pace of play was excellent. Our foursome was done in 2.5 hours.

The course is a bit short, but there are small greens and hazards enough to keep one from overly taking advantage of it.

The greens rolled medium. There are several holes that one needs to put uphill or you are guaranteed a 3 put or a miracle.

The fairways were OK. The rough was OK.

Course conditions were fair to average.

Overall value for a quick round were good

Good layout

The course was in really good shape, had a couple of bad spots on a few greens but they were small ares that didn't effect putting due to pin placements. I will play it again. This course is part of our regular rotation.

DO NOT BOOK THIS COURSE ONLINE

Do not book this course online. They do not check their online tee times and double book them. We had to leave because they course had multiple groups waiting at the first tee and it would’ve been over an hour before they would’ve let us off. Very disappointed...
