About

Holes 18
Par 72
Length 6914
Slope 137
Rating 73.0
Type Semi-Private
Located just north of Tampa in Tarpon Springs, Crescent Oaks Country Club sprawls across rolling hills dotted with sparkling lakes. The narrow course has a traditional layout that was carefully carved from dense woodlands, making it a challenging test. The lakes as well as a meandering creek come into play throughout the golf course. There are also a few strategically placed bunkers along the greensides. The par-5 10th is one of the most memorable holes with an elevated green and a ridge cutting across the middle. Par is considered a good score on this tricky hole. The golf course finishes with a par-4 dogleg left that features water along the entire left side of the fairway. The green is also protected by sand on the right and water on the opposite side.

My Review of Crescent Oaks

Very green, and many trees. Many sand traps on the course. Much water on the course, and I saw a gator. Many deer, turkeys, and birds. Had a good driving range with grass, not mats. A chipping area and a practice bunker were close to the driving range. A good practice putting green, too, The greens on the course weren't the best. Many ball markings on greens and scuff marks. The greens were in pretty good condition, though. Fairways were in good condition, and tee boxes were in pretty good condition. It's a good, high-quality course with some minor elevation changes. It's very similar to many other courses in Florida. And low cost for golfing after 4 PM on a weekday.

Same game

Once again nothing posted about ongoing course maintenance. Whole front 9 was closed and everyone was forced to play the back 9 twice. Wasn’t told this until I already paid and gave the starter my receipt at the start. So sick of this game that I will never play another course that does this. I quit after my first 9 took 2 1/2 hours!

Average course needs some work.

Wet conditions were to be expected due to a lot of rain recently.

Greens good, fairways average, rough to high and weedy.

outstanding value

I played this course using a GolfNow hot special total to play and ride was $29

This is without a doubt the best $29 course I've ever played in my life

The greens were a little slow for my personal preference and it had rained lot recently so the fairways were extremely soggy

I like the layout a couple of holes were absolutely magnificent. The course was well maintained I can't say anything bad about it at all and i would absolutely come back and play it again

New policy?

Always enjoy the golf here, great layout. Course in good shape.

New policy tho?

Hot deal, checked in @ 15 minutes before my tee time, no other players around. If I want to go out by myself, there will be a $10 cart fee. Now my fees have already been paid in full, online, including cart. Have never encountered this before at Crescent Oaks or any other course on a

Golf Now Hot Deal. So I waited until another "Hot Dealer" showed up.

Looking Good

The course is in excellent condition. Despite the heavy rains, there were no soggy spots. Greens were medium speed and rolled well. This is a fun course with lost of decisions to make and very enjoyable.

Don't miss it.

Casual Golf

Golf course is on the up swing. Greens are faster and truer than you think. Wildlife abounds. Wonderful distraction from a challenging golf course. Staff are friendly.

Good Course

Course is in pretty good shape. Fairways are dry and spotty, but not compacted. Tee boxes are as good as can be expected before the rainy season. Greens ran true.
