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!

This is a very nice public gulf course inside the Cove Cay Adult Condo community near Clearwater. When you enter the gated community, tell the guard that you have a tee time and he will give you a parking pass for golf. This golf course...More

I have played at Cove Cay 6 times in the last year. The course was purchased by new owners about a year ago. Prior to that, the course was going down hill due to lack of maintenance. There have been improvements made, but much more...More

Went on the off chance of a game, the course was empty so not a problem to play. Clubs hired , pro was extremely helpful and the prices are reasonable for such a lovely course. Water on just about every hole so quite a challenge...More

I recently played at the goat ranch with my golf league. We will not be coming back. The course has a scenic location and very large parking spaces. The staff is friendly. However, these positive points could not make up for the shabby course conditions....More

I went here solely for the driving range. The range is small and average. The course seemed pretty nice. It was in a retirement type community and had to go through a guard getting inside. Seemed like a pretty course though and some holes looked...More
