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.

Nice course.

This course is a back and forth track, with fairways right next tti each other. Be careful of balls from either left or right. Thes greens are excellent. The fairways are good. The surrounding areas are fair.
It is obvious that the course gets lots of play, due to the wear and tear, much like a municipal course.
That said, it is ultra convenient to Clearwater Beach, and you can drive there, play, and be back in 5 hours.
Our pace of play was fantastic, 3 hours and 45 minutes.
The greens are mostly raised and are undulating. Difficult to putt, but are in great shape. The course is relatively short, but the greens make you pay if you're not paying attention.
I made 3 NW friends this morning and had fun. Give it a try.

Good for the Price

Course was in good shape. Only complaint was pace of play, but can’t expect much when the weather is perfect for golf and everyone wants to get out there. Front 9 greens were inconsistent on speed, but back 9 were well groomed and very consistent.

Good course but pace can be slow

Was behind a league and had to wait on every hole. Will avoid playing here as it can be very frustrating. Otherwise it is a good course for the price.

Overbooked

We had a 130 tee time, checked in at 110 and paid our fees. We walked outside only to find they were out of carts and at least an hour behind. We wouldn't have had time to play all 18. We got a refund. It was unprofessional of the clerk checking us in to not tell us they were out of carta and an hour behind. Very disappointed

Course was fine. Only issue was the course was absolutely packed and we waited on every hole. Also we had a threesome and the starter made us take on a single after we had said no we didn’t want to play with another person.

Course was in great condition

Front 9 greens were different than the back 9. Seems like they’re nearing the end of reviving the front 9 greens and were a little slow. Back 9 greens were perfect and pretty fast. Fairways and tee boxes were in good condition. Overall, neat little course with lots of scoring opportunities and not a ton of trouble
