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!

Sounds like a short course but don't be fooled this can be a challenging course. Greens néed a little help, but all in all nicely kept. Very friendly staff and beautiful views! Definitely recommend for pleasant and relaxing day of golf.

The new owners of Cove Cay Club really know how to make everyone feel at home. The course has never looked better, the food and service in the club restaurant has almost done a 180 change. Really looking forward to everything else they will do!
