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.

Greens were terrible. Pace of play was horrible. Waited 10 mins each tee shot for groups in front of me. No proper groupings.
Old Time Layout
Course was tight, with tee boxes and greens close together, but not a problem to overall play. Greens need a little work, but overall great value.
Not a Country Club
You pay $50 to play 18 at a country club, you don’t expect two sixsomes, barefoot golfers and tee shirt clad hacks. The course is dangerous even with backstop fencing at numerous tees. The back 9 was top dressed w/o the course notifying golfers who were booking, the front 9 greens were burnt and in sad shape. It’s the worst of the munis, no Marshall, poor conditions for MidApril, and just plain dangerous. Interesting layout, too many golfers who really can’t track their ball. No thanks.
We were 30 past our t time and by hole 3 there were 12 carts waiting. I left after almost 5 hours and still had 4 holes to go. I would 100% go to another course especially when it cost 50$ to play. You can actually have a fun round elsewhere. I would cancel my charge if I could.
The staff treats patrons very well. The course is in great shape. This is one of the few Clearwater area courses with consistent grass coverage on the fairways. A few greens had some damage from a fungus or something but they all rolled smooth. I recommend this course. It's excellent.
