The course is under new management. The superintendent is new also. They plan to move & expand the pro shop to include food. While it's a 9 hole course the tee box configuration allows it to play like an interesting 18 hole course.

This is actually a nice course that can be great with a little TLC and better course management. I almost had to walk because there weren't enough golf carts. I would offer some locals free access to help run the place.

Clearbrook was a great course to play. A nice pace of play with barely anyone else out on the course. Played a four hour round with myself and 3 buddies on a Saturday morning. Was supposed to rain but just stayed hot and muggy which may have accounted for the lack of people on the course.

Located in a senior community that is gated.

9 holes and can play it twice. Blue tees make for longer and different angled tee shots. Pins were in difficult spots.

I walked this 9 hole course yesterday. Played in 1.5 hours. Greens are great, a little slow, I will say 90% of fairways are green. Some weeds. For August can't beat it, $14, I think. Beat time is fall and spring. They really are starting to turn the place around. Already cut some shrubs near the tee boxes on 6 and 8 near around the pond. New bunkers on 8. 6 has a tree cut down near lake. (Always wind up there) 3 is still the hardest hole of the 9.
Cheers

From the star rating I viewed I expected better course conditions than I got. Greens were terrific, on the slow side but very full. The grass around some of the greens and fringes was the real issue I had with this course. Rocks, dirt, and stone on the outer part surrounding the greens with absolutely no grass to be seen. How do you hit a golf ball off of that surface and expect to get the ball close to the hole. If your going to have a bad area it should be further away from the greens. One other note some of the bunkers were chock full of rocks to the point it would be dangerous to hit out of it. There ad said improvements had been made to this course so I can only imagine how it used to be.

Was pleasantly surprised with the condition and layout of this course. Its a good fill in when you cant make the big courses. Some challenging holes and some greens where really rolling nice. Enjoyed this course and will play again. Tucked into a gated community, no food except vending machines. (only real draw back) Worth a look, play 18 twice from different tee boxes, that changes things a bit.

Look, I knew going in this wasn't going to be TPC quality. With that in mind, and the desire to play a low-stress round with my teenaged son, we decided to give Clearbrook a go. It's fine. It's OK. It's a nine-holder built inside a 1990's Florida-style housing complex. Fairways are relatively narrow, so that makes it somewhat challenging. Some very, very odd tee boxes that require hitting through and over mature trees. Greens are slow, slow, slow and folks there clearly don't know about fixing divots. All that said, just go out and hit. Have fun. Enjoy the time with your playing partner(s). Just don't expect much.

Nice nine hole trade with some shape to the lay out. Some tee boxes have you hitting irons on par 4 due to trees cutting you of which is just a cheap way to make it a "challenge". Fairways and toughs were taken care of well but the fringes had odd patches of grass here and there and the greens could have been better. It's a good course to just get nine in on. Took 2 and a half hours to get around though all due to the group playing ahead sitting in the cart on the path watching one person hit then when that person got back to the cart the next person got out walked across the fairway to their ball and hit and repeat. Hope that isn't a regular group.
