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.

Always Fun to Play

This is always a great course to play, conditions can vary when Florida rainy season hits and greens cannot always be cut as short as I would like in hot weather but probably one of the half dozen most fun courses to play in the Tampa area. Each hole is different unlike many courses where the look from the tee box looks like the last one or the one before that.

Golf With Nature

The golf course even with all the rain was in very good shape. Greens were extremely puttaable. The wildlife on this course is amazing. More deers and turkey's that you will see in a year in a park. So if you got a day and a date go play Crescent Oaks. The only draw back I have is not with the course but with the people that discard the cigarettes on these beautiful grounds.
So my advise to you is if you smoke please discard your cigarettes in a un littering fashion. If you don't smoke pick up the butts of others to protect this great track of land called Crescent Oaks.

Yet another great round at Crescent

Course is in great shape for the amount of rain we’ve had in the past 6 weeks. Greens were true and fairways were flush. All around good day, except for the heat.

Course was sloppy in some areas. Cart path only. But with all the rain in the region, the course was in fair condition.

Interesting Layout with some difficult holes

Even after being punched and sanded, the greens were true and faster than most community type courses. Fairways were in good shape with the usual hand pan where trees negate good grass growth but overall nice to play. Some tee boxes could use TLC but this is a common problem after the overwhelming use of the "high season" in Florida.

Soggy but still fun.

It poured buckets right when I got there, but within 30 minutes had lighten up to a playable drizzle and completely stopped 1hr latter. So the course was a little soggy but still had a great time. The greens were super tiny so accurate irons were needed to get a GIR.

Super club

Had a great time on a fun challenging course. Course conditions were good considering the 3” of rain night before. Bunkers were under water so with Time they’ll be back. Staff, clubhouse and snack bar all were excellent. Course has some fun holes. #2. And 18 are great strong par 5s. Will definitely play again when in area.

Mostly a good day

Course was fun and definitely a challenge. As mentioned by previous reviewers tee box's could use some TLC and some bare areas around the greens but great value. Pace of play was a bit slow but lots of two somes and three somes. No starter. Would play again.

Nice course

The course was in overall good shape ,tee boxes are in need of some maintenance (at least move the tee markers once in a while) we played the back 9 first and was very slow but after a three sum finished on 18 we started to move better . Can’t complain as the weather was great and it’s the end of March

One of our favorite courses.

Played here often this spring. Good course. People move right along, not much of a hold up. Greens are good. Can we cut the tree down on #12? Asking for a friend.....;)
