The Carrollwood Country Club has been providing outstanding amenities to its members since 1972, but Director of Membership Renee Constantine, says that many Tampa residents do not realize this hidden gem is in their city. Nestled in the middle of heart of Carrollwood Village, the serene surroundings at the Carrollwood Country Club make you feel like you’ve stepped into your own personal vacation retreat. Best of all, the private country club has something for everyone in the family.

Championship Golf Course – One of the shining stars at the Carrollwood Country Club is its golf course – 27 holes of Champion Ultra dwarf greens means you have 3 different courses to choose from. The conditions of play are always excellent thanks to the greens keeper Chuck Cakmacki or the “Mad Scientist of Grass” as he’s known around the club. “CCC’s golf course is consistently in fantastic shape because of his skills and knowledge,” says Renee. Another reason CCC members love their golf course is because members have the choice to walk instead of ride a golf cart. “Many courses do not give you that option,” says Renee.

In addition to being able to play 3 varying course rotations, CCC members also have access to full practice facilities, a dual driving range, 2 putting areas and a chipping area. Those that need some guidance and tips can improve their swing with the help of the Club’s golf pro.

Tennis & Aquatics Center: The sparkling Junior-Olympic swimming pool is the centerpiece of CCC’s Tennis & Aquatics Center. Surrounded by a beautiful deck with cabanas and lounge chairs, there is plenty of room for parents to relax and recharge while their children enjoy a swim. Younger kids love the fenced in Splash Pad and the covered playground.

The center also features 8-lighted Hydro Tennis Courts, a fitness center with state-of-the-art equipment, group exercise classes, and certified personal trainers, and pristine locker rooms. ­­

CCC is the home of the Carrollwood Village Swim Team, a competitive USA Swimming Team. CCC is also home to the Carrollwood Village Master's Swimming Program, an adult team for competitors, triathletes, or just those who enjoy swimming laps and being part of a fun group. Their Swim America swim lesson programs are for children and adults of all ages.

They also offer tennis lessons and clinics for players as young as 3. And during spring break and summer children can enjoy sports camp.

"We have loved being members at Carrollwood Country Club," said Katie Armstrong. "Our children love the swimming pool and have become stronger swimmers through lessons and the swim team. Our daughter and her friends have been to summer sports camp twice and are already asking to go next year. We always have so much fun when we go and have met and become friends with many new families. Everyone there from members to staff is always friendly and welcoming. The weekly pasta nights are a family favorite but the event we like best is the 4th of July party."
