Cheval Golf and Athletic Club
Designed by Steve Smyers, Cheval Golf and Athletic Club's (previously known as Cheval Country Club) mature and meticulously maintained course meanders through 860 acres of elegantly designed development property. Cypress trees abound on this course along with native Florida wildlife including deer, alligators, otters, eagles, wading birds and more. Cheval is one of the area's most prestigious semi-private clubs and offers 18 holes of championship golf. Precise shot placement is required to avoid the 108 bunkers and water hazards that lurk on every hole. A large practice facility includes target greens, distance markings, a practice greens-side bunker, a practice fairway bunker, large putting green and separate pitching green.

Good course for the price. Extremely friendly staff. Tees, fairways and greens in excellent condition. Many bunkers and water hazards make for a challenging game.
Not in top shape, for private club. Shame, Love course,drove 90 minutes
Very nice course
One of my favorite courses in Tampa area. Only negative the greens were a little slow.
Very nice Track
The layout here was pretty good. Very challenging for me since my draw is very heavy and a lot of my shots were dancing along the out of bounds line. The greens rolled pretty true. There was a little crab grass growing on fringes on greens in areas, but the fairways were trimmed but don’t land in the rough unless you have your ball on a string.
This is my first time playing Cheval, and I enjoyed playing this challenging course with some unique holes. The conditions were ok, course was soft and greens were slower than I expected. The layout itself contains a lot of doglegs which can easily turn into layups if you do not get the right angle into from your tee shots. Playing the correct tee is key here, you'll notice soon enough when you hit a good drive and it doesn't clear the doglegs to give you a clear approach. I would like to play the course again with some firm / faster conditions.
Pace of play was good. We were paired with another twosome, which didn't seem necessary considering it wasn't crowded. Overall, nice course. It was somewhat under what I was expecting, but fair with the golfnow discount.
