I play there on Saturdays. Couse is in pretty good shape, some of the green need work. But over all for an weekend duffer it's a pretty challenging course. The price is great, they give discounts for military and first responders.

This course is attached to a university which offers golf scholarships for talented young players, so it is difficult. Long holes, plenty of trees and quite a lot of water made this the toughest of the nine courses we played on thi s trip.

The price they charged my wife and me was not fair when the greens had been recently aerated and sanded, a couple of holes water over the cart paths, we were told it was cart path only "after we had paid" all of this should have been disclosed over the phone when making the tee time.

The Claw is a good place to get in round of golf. It's not the best course in Tampa, but has a great layout. The fairway and tee boxes need some work and the greens can be inconsistent. The staff is usually made up of students and they are super friendly. The driving range is okay, irons only. The short... More

I was very glad to find that The Claw opened a footgolf course about a year ago, and had been looking forward to playing it. At almost every hole, I was disappointed by the course: - Tee areas inconsistently placed both with regard to the golf tee locations and the footgolf map that shows where the tees are/were/should be. -...

Played The Claw recently, and I am always impressed at how true the greens are, how challenging it is, and how well maintained it is. A true gem for the price. We will be back.

This is a difficult course with tight fairways and requires a variety of shot making. The course is in rough shape. It was often difficult to find a patch of grass in the tee box to hit off of.

The Claw is a very good test of your shot making. The several holes feature narrow fairways lined with trees. There is enough sand and water to keep you honest. The course from the tips is 6863 yds.with a 135 slope and 73.6 rating. The ladies play over 5353 yds with a slope of 117 and 70.8 rating. Most guys... More

The Claw at USF while it still holds quite a bit of water it is a tough but fair golf course. It always has walkers in the morning but they are quick and you never see them. In good condition. Fairways a little sparse and damp in some places but still a good buy. The signature hole will jump up... More

The Claw at USF (University of South Florida) is just North of Tampa. This course is in excellent condition with the best greens I have played in 2015. The Claw offers a Summer card at a discount for multiple rounds, a GREAT deal. Now for the course play. This course requires length IN THE RIGHT PLACES. For example, the first... More
