Played here in September. This was once one of my favorite courses, but now it is in terrible shape. The fairways are only a little bit better than a cow pasture - there are no patties. The whole place including the buildings appear to be in decline. Even the low green fees could not compensate for the terrible condition of... More

Though with the neverending construction on US 19, we finally found the entrance to the condos and golf course.We got directions from the friendly entry guard to the marina, but once there the place to check in for the kayak rental was tough to find with no signs. Luckily we were late and spotted our group waiting for us! The... More

Just finished a round there today. Greens are a joke. Fairways are almost acceptable, but the greenside rough is a disaster. Good luck chipping from the dirt and sand for those of you that don't hit greens all of the time. Tee boxes are also horrendous. I payed $25 for a discounted summer round and I feel very ripped off.... More

The layout of this course is very encouraging and picturesque landscapes make for great sight lines. However, this course has deteriorated along with the condos in this community. Greens were unputtable and fairways looked terrible. Not worth the $20 we paid for the round. Better courses and value in the area. Overall, besides the friendly staff, worst course I've played...

I think it is very unfortunate that a golf course that is in such a beautiful area is in such bad shape. The staff is very friendly so that is a plus but do not feel the course is in a $50 a round shape. Yes, the green fees drop during the summer drop but it should be in better... More

We play at least once a week while in Florida for the winter. We enjoy the course and it helps our score with lots of par three holes. We find it to be in good condition for a public course. The staff are excellent especially Bob in the pro shop. The views on some holes are wonderful. We usually play... More

This is a nice course with fairly tight fairways. The back nine is especially picturesque as it runs along the bay for a number of holes. Although it was a fun layout, the course needs some help especially on the greens that were very bumpy and often difficult to hit a putt that would stay on line.

Played golf two times at Cove Cay while staying in the Clearwater area. The course was in pretty good condition for it being February. The best part was the views on some of the holes. Cove Cay lies near the water and on some of the holes you could see Tampa Bay. The clubhouse has good views also. Would recommend... More

Course seems to have good layout, takes carefull planning for your shots to clear the various holes well guardied by waters and bunkers. Fairways quite ok, better than other courses we have payed in the area, greens need more grass. - Time of the year may be reason why we have not met here courses with really good fairways and...
