You swing your best when you have the fewest things to think about.Bobby Jones
The Claw at USF is one of Tampa Bay’s most challenging public golf courses. Featuring long, tight fairways lined with majestic oaks, towering cypress and pines, this manicured course is also one of the most beautiful. Home to alligators, deer, spoonbills and other wildlife, you may feel like you are playing in the heart of a nature preserve.
The Claw is home to the nationally-ranked USF Men's Golf Team and USF Women's Golf Team, and the newly revamped Rocky's Sports Grill provides the perfect 19th hole. Other amenities include a grass tee driving range, a learning center, and a large putting/chipping green. Our golf course and accompanying amenities are sure to provide you and your guests with a fun and enjoyable golfing experience.
