Description: Come visit our Waterfront 18 Hole Championship Golf Course & Bayview Pub...
Come visit our Waterfront 18 Hole Championship Golf Course & Bayview Pub & Grill Cove Cay Golf Club is a USGA rated, 18 hole championship length golf course located on Tampa Bay. Built by architect David Stewart, this challenging layout places a premium on accuracy with water coming into play on 12 of our 18 holes. Spectacular views and an abundance of wildlife make Cove Cay a golf course that you won't want to miss! An 18 hole round rarely takes over 4 hours to complete, making for an exceptional golf experience. With 4 sets of tees, Cove Cay has a yardage to suit every player. Golfers can choose their length, from 4,216 yards to 6,079 yards at our longest tee, from a beginner to low handicapper, we have a challenge for you! Our signature hole is the 17th. This par 5 runs along Tampa Bay with a spectacular view and a challenging shot into a small peninsula green. Accuracy is a must on this approach with any wayward shot sure to find the water. Cove Cay golfers and guests may also enjoy fantastic waterfront dining at our Bayview Pub & Grill. We offer a great variety with everything from Fred's Famous Chicken Wings and Coleslaw to fresh salads and juicy burgers. Our dinner entrees offer something for every taste, so stop in and enjoy some great food with a great view!

Very sad to see this former gem in such bad shape. Greens were bad and had been punched and sanded, but we were not informed of this when we made our tee times. When you are paying $35 you expect much better than this in Florida in the offseason. Slow group in front of us made our round take forever.... More

I have been playing golf for 30 years and played my share of courses that were not in the best of shape. This course was the absolute worst! The fairways were ragged and weedy. The greens were barren with only a few spots of grass making them hard as rock. There was no starter or ranger to move play along.... More

We are staying here in a friends unit for a few weeks. It is a beautiful gated golfing community with Tampa Bay along it's eastern border. The grounds are very well kept. They are constantly raking, clipping, mowing, or painting. The very slow automobile traffic makes it easy to take a scenic walk or bicycle ride. I'm not golfer, but... More

Greens were brown and dry but most rolled true. Beautiful views of Tampa Bay made it enjoyable. Range was closed at 11:00 on saturday due to group lessons which was upsetting. I need range work before I play so bad first impression. At the 8th we tried calling in some lunch but the snack shop didn't answer. We went in... More

The new owners of Cove Cay Club really know how to make everyone feel at home. The course has never looked better, the food and service in the club restaurant has almost done a 180 change. Really looking forward to everything else they will do!

My wife and I recently played Cove Cay Country Club during a visit to the Tampa Bay Area. We chose Cove Cay because they offer free green fees during the birthday week of their Eclub members. Since my wife and my birthday fall within the same week, we were able to play for the price of the cart ($40). First... More
