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.

This layout doesnt have a lot of water but is challenging in narrow fairways and hole placement and greens are true. Great course to have a casual round of golf that will challenge any handicap. Highly recommend.

3 hours to play the front 9. 11:00am tee time. Apparently, it was the CCC league day. They had sent players out on a shotgun start. The people playing the league were terribly slow. Waited at everything hole. On top of that, they started two foursomes out on 10 in front of us as we made the turn. The last league foursome finished on 12 and our last 6 holes were played at a good pace. Advice: call the pro shop and make sure you aren't playing on their league day.

For a Florida course during Spring break, this was a solid course. The course was in decent shape and the pace was awesome...3 of us played in just under 4 hours. Our 8:20 tee time had us teeing off 5 minutes early, which was nice. The layout is a bit confusing on the back nine (reversed order, they had us play the back nine as our first nine) as holes are going back and forth, with a few fences protecting tee boxes and can be a bit hectic. But other than a few of those holes, the course is solid...not an upper tier course, but a nice solid "muni" type of course.

Played the round under 4 hours. An open and generally forgiving course. Some holes do challenge and require precision shot making. Will play here more likely than somewhere else.

We had a 10:45 am tee time. Several foursomes were backed up on the tee box when we arrived at 10:30. For some reason, they were sending everyone off the 10th tee. We thought there might be a league/tournament going on, but were told that this was a typical Saturday. Didn't tee off until 11:15. Backups on every hole. First nine took 3 hours to complete. Second nine did move a little bit faster, but par 3s still had 2-3 groups waiting. We did not see a ranger on the course to move things along. I would wait until the afternoon if you want to play this course. The front nine had an area where about 5 holes converged in one place. Balls were flying at you in all directions. Poor layout.
