Why USF's The Claw is among the country's best college courses

The Claw at USF 1

It's not hard to imagine why students flock to the University of South Florida. It's in a major conference and a big city in Tampa that has the perfect mix of city life, college town and beach escape. And what would a university in that kind of location be without a fun golf course? Enter The Claw at USF.

The Claw is a par-71 course that's not only home to the school's golf teams, but also is open for public play. Home to alligators, deer, spoonbills and other wildlife, The Claw is not only a great golf course, but a great place to do some nature watching.

Perhaps that's why PGA.com once ranked The Claw as the second-best college course in the country in a poll of their Facebook fans, including these reader comments:

"USF. Gotta have everything in your game working to post a good score." -- Javier Plansencia
"Definitely The Claw at South Florida. Hit it straight, hit it long! Yeah!" -- Chad Vanwinkle

Check out The Claw for yourself!
