Clearwater Country Club
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.

No effort whatsoever by this course to keep pace of play up. Additionally, lots of cross traffic on the holes means balls whizzing by all over the place, certainly not a place I’d bring a young player, too high risk of getting hit. These old folks down here don’t yell fore, and the tee box layout is borderline negligent given the ability of your average golfer.
Good “old Florida” style course
I enjoy playing here. What it lacks in length and hazards ir makes up with exceptionally small greens. Your short game must be on target. Even though it was busy the pace of play moved along nicely. Good value for green fee.
Will have to try again
My wife and I had a 10:45am T time, we were held up in the first hole for 10 to 15 minutes due to a groups of six and the started called the two threesomes. However they played together. Which wasn’t terrible but it held us up we should have been through 18 holes by 2:00pm as we had an afternoon appointment so we ended up cutting our game short and at $40.00 per person it was a costly 9 holes.
Course was good and flow for a links course however many cannot keep their ball in their fairway . This happens but almost hit a couple times .
We will go back to play again and hope to get all 18 hioles.
Great public course
Great course for some elevation changes. Good shape and drains pretyy good for all the rain weve been having. Had a temp green for hole 18, assuming it was under repair. No biggy.
Many of the holes had very swampy areas. There were many areas of new sod so when that takes, that will help to make it look nicer. It is hard to believe you could have a course in Florida without drinking water stands, but this is one of those and there was no refreshment cart.
Fair for price paid
Greens were slow. Fairways were bare in spots. On course construction had tees moves up on two holes. Overall condition of course was fair.
When you’re from out of town and you see the name “Country Club” you expect a decent experience. That’s s place was a dump!!!! The grass looked like it hadn’t been cut in a week. Greens were recently plugged in the middle of summer. A lot of ground under repair and bare spots in fairways. This place makes a “cheap” course in Denver look prime. The pictures online do not do this course justice.
Early tee time, so course wasn’t crowded and got out easily. Course was in good shape overall, but some heavy repair and patchy in some spots - nothing mentioned until you’re already on course. At turn there was still no one in the grill after 9am and had to get the Pro Shop person to help and no cart staff offering drinks even on back 9. Bring your own water.

First 9 greens were terrible. Suspected under repair but not advised as such. Rougher was particularly bad but don’t know if it needed maintenance or that was their usual.
