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!

Bill & Pat have done a more than great job in making the Cove Cay Golf Course one of the best in the area. The fairways are lush (they have just completed double seeding), the greens are looking wonderful - and look at those new golf carts. All is great at Cove Cay Golf Club because of the dedication of... More

I found this course on GolfNow.com (no, I don't have any affiliation with them). Got a nice price for an 11:21 tee time. It is in a gated community. My wife and I played on a Thursday and had no problem with pace of play. They do have a driving range and putting area for warm up. The fairways are... More

I have played this course many times starting in November of 2014 when Pat and Bill Shriver took over the course. What a change from a year ago! Every time I play the course it is in better shape. The staff is friendly and helpful. Don't forget to have lunch or dinner after golf at the Bayview Pub & Grill... More

Must play for all those snow birds or anyone in the Clearwater area. As you might know by now, the new owners Bill & Pat Shriver have done a great job of restoring the golf course and also redoing the lounge and banquet halls. If you had played a year ago, there is know doubt that the course was in... More

Had a great time at Cove Cay ! It has challenging holes with a lot of water! It's a "shotmakers" course! Lots of fun, good price, excellent food and restaurant is on the Bay. Scenic Tampa Bay views along the back nine.

This place is a complete dump, steer clear. For $30 they charge, you can play a much nicer course in the area. The whole course is overgrown with weeds. There is trash along the tee boxes. Many of the tee boxes have been relocated to the rough area behind the tee box or on the fair way because the tee... More

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

Sounds like a short course but don't be fooled this can be a challenging course. Greens néed a little help, but all in all nicely kept. Very friendly staff and beautiful views! Definitely recommend for pleasant and relaxing day of golf.
