“Boring...”
Reviewed 17 December 2013

I was able to play this course at a drastically discounted rate due to cool weather and cancellations. ($14.00 with cart.) At this price, it was a relatively good value. I would have been sadly disappointed if I would have paid full rate for the day which I think is in the $35.00 range depending upon time of day, day of week. On the positive, the starter was very friendly and accommodating, offering several options for play. The gas powered carts are clean and in good repair. However, the course layout is so-so, very uninspiring. Every hole is the same, straight away with a few bunkers around the elevated greens. Although it was not busy the day I was there, the course shows signs of heavy play. Lots of divots in the fairways, well worn greens with little undulation. Not a bad experience, but boring for the average golfer. I would not recommend this course except as a last resort or for a beginning golfer who needs wider fairways and less challenging environment. I did not dine but the bar and restaurant facilities appeared inviting.

“You can find better......”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

This course has seen its better days. I think it gets the ratings that it does because people think that the low cost makes it a good deal. That isn't always true. Clearwater CC appears to have many members and good for them for that, but with the play I seen the day I played, it would appear to me that they could stick a few bucks back into this place and make it nicer. Also, plan on a 5 hour round, so give this place some credit, it will teach you patience. Some of the tee boxes are in dire need of repair. The greens were pretty good, but their approaches are horrendous. This is one of the old school courses that don’t have a true dirt base, so around the greens when you’re trying to make approach shorts the ground underneath the grass is like peat moss, so it has no firmness to it. Every shot you hit is just this explosion of slit garbage. They are also in need of some seed in the fairways. They are very thin and inconsistent. There are several courses in the area that can be played for the same money.....my advice is to try one of the other places.

“Enjoyable golf.”
Reviewed 26 June 2013

A management company now runs Clearwater Country Club and what a difference that made. All the employees are very nice and helpful.. The course is in good shape and the green fees are very reasonable.
