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 golf course challenges the average golfer. Lots of picturesque water holes that make it tough to par. Greens in good shape, pace was good. Overall, a good course that I'd recommend.

Played here yesterday. Very disappointing course condition. The cart paths we in disrepair. The greens on 1 and 2 were sand. For the price I expected a much better course to play. There are other places to play in the area for a better value....More

Good course for beginners Plenty of time to practice while waiting on tee box. Greens and fairways in bad shape. A disappointment for most golfers. The challege is to finish the round. We did not.

Just played this weekend and greatly improved from last May. Couple of greens still have some spots, but all in all great shape. Greens were really smooth and fast. Always a great view of Tampa Bay. Tee times a must on Saturday and Sunday morning.
