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.

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.

Holes are wide open, so you can spray the drives around and still get a good approach to green. Some water holes but easily navigated.

Course in decent shape, all the rough cut back.

I'm working on a new golf swing so course was forgiving for that.

Had a nice day.

No friendly upscale 18 hole golf course should ever have a long, tight par 4 with a 200 yd second shot over water to a green surrounded by traps .....for the first hole. They didn't get that memo here at Crescent Oaks. I believe all courses should start with a par five to be honest.Golf is supposed to be fun, not frustrating after getting a 7 on the very first hole. The rest of the holes get better but way too many traps lining the fairways and the grass around the traps is nonexistent all year round.If you're looking for a real challenge and you like to hit off of hardpan and out of traps on holes that occasionally have random trees blocking your shot to the green after a dead center drive.... this is the perfect course for you. If you normally shoot 78-80 but you want to bump it up to 95, play here. Hey owners, want to know why your course is unoccupied by avid golfers? There's your answer. Solution-start watering the grass. cut down some trees. Fill in some traps. Widen some fairways, and business will be booming. It's not that hard to do.

Played again, 5 times in a row. Better than many courses around and for a decent price. Greens were a bit hard as there has been no rain and the fairways were hurting a bit despite irrigation. But still, a great course!

Staff was extremely friendly. Brought carts to us as we unloaded our bags from the car. Saw my friend with a cigar, and one younger worker went back to shed and brought back cigar holder to clip on cart. Finished round in about 4 1/4 hours. Fastest greens we played on during our 3 rounds in Florida!! Fairways in decent condition, sand traps can use some work.

I played a foursome on Crescent Oaks at 12:45PM. The first hole was a little backed up but eventually once tee'd off we did not have to wait to hit shots for the rest of the round. The course is in great conditions especially the greens which were running true. I will definitely play here again. The course layout is challenging therefore you have to know where to miss your shots in order to prevent getting into trouble. It has a mix of hole so you have to think what to hit off the tee.
