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.

Have played this course a few times when in the Tampa area. It is consistently in good shape and provides sufficient challenges for even a good golfer (not claiming to be one). Greens were not that fast but one must still bring the A game.

Pleasantly surprised with pace of play - in Florida this time of year many courses pack in the out of towners and the pace of play suffers. Not so here.

The course is scenic with a nice layout. There are a number of spots on the course with water crossing a fairway that isn't obvious from the tee box (numbers 1 and 6 that I recall - I believe there are others.) If you are wild off the tee this probably isn't a course you'd enjoy. Several shots require placement of the ball into a safe area. There are places on the course where a smart layup is called for (#6 2nd shot unless you'e a big hitter). Keep an eye out for gators, deer, turkeys and a variety of other birds -you'll probably see some or all of the above.

A very difficult course for me. Played white tees and that was tough enough believe me. My good drives go 200 down here. Some holes are best played as par five to avoid trouble. Tight lies require playing the ball back in stance a little and around green putter is best often and like in the U.K. playing along the ground is wise. On greens you must consider the grain. A great challenge. I played again 2 days later and scored 20 strokes better (92) but it still got me when I let my concentration lapse. Take the challenge!

Great course layout, in decent shape. Went there to walk the course but they said only members can walk. Then had to wait extra 20 minutes because they were out of golf carts and still wouldn't let us walk. One staff member said it was a financial thing yet it is the same price and they actually make more without us using carts. It would be a great course to walk, need to change rules.

Green grass lining tee boxes and fairways and smooth greens. Always challenging. Good test of your iron play & 3 wood (from the white tees) Enjoyed my playing partners whom I just met. Good value!
