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.

Beautiful Course

First time around this beautiful course. We played the white tees and that is sufficient challenge for us but longer hitters can go way back and many of the holes would be very challenging. Course is in good condition and winds through lots of trees, wetlands and not too many houses. Greens are great: fast and challenging. Although they are mostly pretty flat the Bermuda grain is part of every read you will make.

Under water...but still great!

Teed off just as a torrential downpour was finishing..played in 3 hours seeing no one. No complaints about how wet it was because we knew it was going to be after 3 hours of rain. But the greens drained and held up nicely. Without the rain, I have a feeling the greens would have been very, VERY fast. If u don't mind CPO right now, 100% recommend

Good challenge

You need a good drive right off the 1st tee to clear 200 yards of water! Front 9 was narrow, but back 9 opens up and is longer. Course conditions were pretty good, but I felt like the speed of the greens was not consistent.

Good deal, good people

Fun layout. Lots of options off the tee. Friendly staff. Starter is always on top of getting groups out or pairing you with one. Nice practice facility with chipping green. Cart girls are friendly. Great pricing on a nice course.

Nice course

Very nice course, today wasn’t so good,
A better tee time or pairing management is or was needed today.

There was a 2 some in front of us, then us, then a 2 some behind us, and a single behind them.

Needless to say we waited on the tee box and on the fairways, every time.

The 4 some at front where playing from the blues, most time could not clear the white tee box all of then so they kept hitting.
To add to it, they all had range finders which makes every round even slow.

The rangers where driving around not doing anything at all, even though they saw the traffic jam.

How about pairing 2 some with other 2 some? Just an idea.

I get it most people want to play alone or with their buddy, but it just makes the round paintfully slow.

We love the course, it does play some what slow but it moves in an acceptable pace most times.

That is all.

Wont be disappointed with this track

I stopped coming here a few years back when it seemed the tee times were on top of each other and you were always waiting, not sure if I got lucky on Memorial Day but even with no starter the wait wasn't horrible, we did have to wait for a little on some tee boxes but didn't feel rushed by the group behind us. If you like wildlife this course has gators, snapping turtles and leatherbacks, wild turkeys, and the occasional deer may stop by to say hello. Greens were fast and true, fairways had some patchy spots but more good than bad, and the tee boxes need some TLC at spots. Playing from the blues or the tips can leave a lot of water to carry at times but its a playable course that will have you risking shots for rewards that are worth it.

Fun Course

This is a fun course. Scenery and layout are good. Greens in really good shape. What keeps this from being an A+ is some of the tee boxes and traps could be in better shape, and rain may help that. But I like the feel and layout and it will be in the rotation for sure.

Oaks Play

Staff professional and courteous. Course in excellent condition except for tee boxes which really need some immediate attention. Horrible pace of play and typically no "on course" ranger to monitor pace of play. Course allows golfers to start on hole number 10 after 3pm. This has a hugely negative impact on those making the turn. On course restaurant, Oaks Grille, service below acceptable standard, incredibly slow and not much motivation noted.

Empty

Course was empty due to Valspar tournament. Course was in pretty good condition. Greens a little inconsistent but no dead spots. Ran slow and fast. Tee boxes not the best though.

Cresent April

Professional and courteous staff, facilities in great shape and course is very challenging . Course conditions are excellent but many tee boxes are in horrible condition. Tried to eat dinner after my round but it was Burger Night plus Trivia Night and they were seriously understaffed. Wanted for a while but became frustrated so I went down the road for dinner.
