“The Claw golf course at USF”
Review of The Claw at USF

The Claw at USF
Ranked #39 of 89 Outdoor Activities in Tampa

Reviewed 30 June 2014

Very scenic and challenging golf course. A lot of tight fairways and turtle back greens, but well worth playing. Very reasonable rates. Puts a premium on straight drives and iron shots.2 Practice greens and range, but no woods allowed on the range, just irons. Nice clubhouse for a cold drink and sandwich after the round.

this course is very fair and in good shape but from the back it has some bite very challeging and has some deceptively long carrys. But if you are in tampa this course should be on your list

Unfortunately the course has seen better days. I understand that watering after overseeing is needed but these folks have over done it as the fairways and greens were soaked with standing water in places. The cart we were given was a joke. The thing made all sorts of noise and the parking brake did not work so it was rolling away from us all day long. Many of the cart paths on the course were so tore up that they were borderline unusable. Being local, I will probably avoid this course for some time.

I didn't enjoy it as it was very tough made tougher by poor course conditions. Carts can't make it 18 holes and I had bad experience with the staff.

This course is very challenging but a great test of your golf skills. A bunch of the fairways are narrow and there is a fair amount of water to contend with. In addition the Bermuda grass greens are fast and a majority of the pins were placed on crowns which made putting a bit tricky. The play was slower than I expected but not awful. On warm days it is likely that you will see at least a few gators lining the ponds on the course. The greens and fairway were in great shape. I wouldn't suggest this course for players with handicaps over 20 as the combination of fast greens, tight fairways, and water could prove to be overly frustrating.
