Silver Dollar Golf & Trap Club - Panther/Bobcat Course
There are three nines at the Silver Dollar Golf & Trap Club, which can be played individually, consecutively, or as three different 18-hole combinations. Each nine has a unique layout with different challenges but all share the same lush landscape covered with stately trees and water features. The Panther/Bobcat combination offers a mix of narrow and wide fairways, some of which are lined with trees. A few strategically placed bunkers come into play along the greensides and there are also water hazards coming into play on a number of holes. Located just northwest of Tampa along the west Florida coast, the nines represent the best of Florida golf. Silver Dollar also boasts some of the area's most affordable rates, which makes the versatile layouts doubly appealing.

Lots of Gators
Nice course. Newer carts pace was a bit slower than other times played here. Tee boxes need some work, greens were nice, and fast.
Course was dry n hard n som tee did not clearly indicate which fairway when it look like either in the openness.
It was a well laid out course with a fantastic setting and scenery. I even ran into an alligator on hole 11! Super wild and awesome! Greens where fantastic!
It’s a “Beer drinking with buddies” course
It’s a short course designed for geriatrics that is weaved throughout their 55+ community. Its not aesthetically pleasing by any means, in fact it’s pretty boring. The fairways are more wild flowers than grass and the greens are what I can only describe as “FUZZY”. With all that said, this is a very laid back course. One would would even say it’s a perfect course to take out a few of your unskilled golfing buddies and throw a couple or a couple dozen beers back. At the end of the day if you care more about drinking beers with the boys and not so much the golf then go ahead and have yourself a good ol’ time here.
I arrived early and was told to check in 15 minutes prior to my T-time. No doubt because I booked through Golf Now. When I did check in the group I was supposed to play with had already started.
While I waited to T off I picked up a bucket of balls. The driving range was terrible. No distance markers and the whole place is covered in broken clay pigeons because the driving range is also used for skeet shooting.
Not likely I would play there again.
Not well care for...
No one toll us there was a trap shooting contest going on...Shotgun blast going off all day..staff in pro shop rude..lots of hidden hazards ..nothing marked on course.no thanks ...won't be back....
REVIEW GOLF AND TRAP
COURSE IS SOMEWHAT DIFFICULT FROM THE STANDARD TEES GREAT VALUE AND PACE OF PLAY
Course was in nice shape and pace of play was comfortable. Greens were fast probably due to dry weather conditions.
