Overview

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!

Hi Carole. We had a dry winter and are making reparations. The business of golf means mother nature sometimes takes her toll and work has to be done, no matter the season.

The cart paths are rough, James, and are definitely on our to-do list. But, as you know, there's always a long laundry list of things to maintain, repair or improve. Thanks for the feedback!

A golf course hidden in a condo development off of a busy highway. This course has tons of water and can be a bit of a challenge for the low handicap player. Rates are low during the summer. Always well kept.
