Par 72
Length 6225 yards
Slope 127
Rating 70.1

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.

Don’t bother

This place is a poorly run overrated and overcrowded mess. At our tee time there weren’t any carts left. There were groups all over the place with nobody running the show. The starter was standing around like a deer in the headlights.
It’s actually amazing that anyone comes here more than once

ok value for the $$

Pace of play could have been better. (no ranger that I could see) When comparing it to other courses in the area I would have to say that there are better values for the money. Not a bad course though just more of a plain vanilla course. Would play it again but it's not on top of my list.

Nice course

Very nice course with palm trees, tropical birds and enough water to satisfy this northerner seeking a relaxing experience on a Florida course in the winter! Had a 11:52am tee time and only negative was, due to heavy play, there was not enough riding carts so could not tee off until other golfers came off the course. We were ready to tee off but had to wait 20-30 minutes for a cart so we got started late. Once on the course things moved along acceptably,

Decent day

Not a bad day on a course I have played a few other times. Staff i pro shop was good but there was nobody in charge at the first tee. Good pace of play on the back nine which we played first. Second nine was dreadfully slow. Willing to give it another shot.

Good course. Don't let the bad reviews stop you!

I was there on a colder and wet day. That probably scared away many people so I was done in 3.5 hours.

The fairways are wide and the greens are mostly evelvated and in great shape. I liked the back to back par 5's on the back 9.
