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 was my first time playing there. The greens were in the midst of be fixed, but despite that it was a good round. I went on as a single and linked up with the course PGA teaching pro (Jeff Haney) who was a good guide for the course and not overly pushy about lessons, etc. I've been fortunate to play much better courses in the past, but overall it was good value for the money and I'll go back there.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The course layout was good. We had to rent clubs because we were visiting from out of town the rentals were not good. But for $10 what do you expect. The greens were horrible. My putts were affected almost on every putt. Someone said that’s how all greens are back East. I really enjoyed the course except for the greens.

The greens were spotty and fairways also spotty.

While there wasn't any length to the grass on the fairways. The grass around anything the riding mower couldn't reach was 12" deep.

The only green that was in good shape was the 18th.

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.
