Cove Cay Golf Club
I played this course in Oct and it was in horrible condition. I gave it a second chance yesterday and it was in worse shape. This course is not playable from start to finish. The only good thing was there 2 for one drafts on the 19th hole.

This course has a good layout.
Not worth the money. Greens were awful.
Staff not too friendly.

Great location, but this is far from a 'must visit'
We played on a very cold day (started the day at 45 Fahrenheit), but it was sunny and the day turned out just fine.
Course was beat up, to be sure, but very playable. Coming from Canada, one must accept poor playing conditions, so I can hardly complain about rough spots and bare batches in March!
Greens were cut very fine and were fast and challenging. The location is really the bright spot here - there are some spectacular views of the Bay that make this a nice course to play.
Value for money, there are better options in the Clearwater-St.Pete's area, and I doubt I would return, but it was challenging and I was just happy to be playing golf in March.

Don't pass up Cove Cay if you are golfing in Clearwater
My son and I very much enjoyed playing Cove Cay.
It was early March so greens conditions were not perfect, but still very good. Cove Cay is a beautiful course with many views of the Tampa Bay. It is challenging but not too tough for a 20's handicap like me who had not played all winter. The staff was very friendly and play speed was good. very few back ups playing on this Monday Morning.
Hit'em straight and enjoy Cove Cay,

Typical St Pete/Clearwater Golf
As with most courses this side of Tampa Bay, conditions were just ok. Greens looked rough but held and rolled fast and true. Hard to read subtle rolls. Tight landing areas and approaches to some greens make this a challenging track.

There was a fivesome of poor golfers two groups ahead of us, which cause the group behind them to wait on every tee box, and we waited on every tee box.
I would not return there.

was once a good course
They appear to be losing their greens and fairways were apparently not over-seeded this winter - very little grass in some spots.
I will not play this course again, not worth the money.

Course was beat up.
I won't lie, the greens, (and I'm not picky by any means) literally had patches of straight up sand in them. They were beat up. Fairways were thicker than expected (on par with the tee box). I will say this though, the guys in the pro shop are awesome. Got me paired up quickly (even though many two and threesomes were kind of jerks and didn't want to be paired up, which ruined pace of play) and he even comped me a warm up bucket of balls being an out of towner! Had the course been in good condition, would have been a fun challenging course but it just looked beat up. Pace of play was terrible which seems to be a trend for FL courses for me so far. I'd say pass on this course and play Clearwater CC or Bardmoor which are about as close and in much better shape.
