Chi Chi Rodriguez Golf Club is perhaps one of the most compelling golf stories in the country.  The golf course is a not for profit entity founded by Chi Chi Rodriguez himself in 1979.  Since that time, the Foundation has touched over 15,000 children and families.  The golf course itself is always in great shape. Following are some pictures of the golf course.  It is not a long golf course by any standards but it sure a fun place to play and is a layout that will cause a golfer to hit almost every club in the bag at least once.

The facility consists of:

  • 18 hole golf course
  • golf driving range and family sports complex
  • Chi Chi Rodriguez Academy
  • First Tee Program of Clearwater
  • Big Brothers and Big Sisters
  • Boys and Girls Club

The Academy serves over 1,000 children through its on campus and outreach programs.  We will provide a link to its bi-monthly newsletter called What's New at Chi Chi's.  When it comes to considering charitable contributions, please keep Chi Chi Rodriguez Youth Foundation in mind.  You can visit the Chi Chi Youth Foundation for more details at

The description of the Chi Chi Rodriguez Youth Foundation is summed up as follows:

GOLF AND GIVEBACK. Many golfers struggle to balance their love of the sport with life's demands but at Chi Chi Rodriguez shot makers  can enjoy the par 69 course and still be home in time for dinner. The golf club is also home of the Chi Chi Rodriguez Academy, a living classroom that provides non-traditional students with hands on learning.  A portion of a golfers fee goes to help give the next generation the character and values taught through the game of golf, the mentorship and quality education they deserve and the life skills to make our community a better place.
