Located just northwest of Tampa, Silver Dollar Golf & Trap Club sprawls across the lush landscape of the west Florida coast. The club offers three nines: the Gator, the Panther, and the Bobcat. The nines can be played individually for a quick round or in three different 18-hole combinations. The Gator/Panther layout offers a good balance of challenges and player-friendly features. Narrow, tree-lined fairways are complemented by generous landing areas. There are sparkling lakes and ponds that come into play on a few holes and strategically placed bunkers are situated along the greensides. In addition to the three golf courses, Silver Dollar boasts one of the area's most extensive practice facilities, which includes a full driving range, two putting greens, a pitching and chipping green with a sandtrap, and three practice holes.

Good little track.

The course was very wet and swampy, but we played early in the morning.
The greens were fantastic and the staff were amazingly friendly.
Difficult lay out. Probably the worst score of my last few years, but fun and challenging.

Nice course. Get used to gun fire.

Tee boxes could use work but nice course overall. Layout was different with some unique holes. Nice restaurant attached and is in a nice little snowbird neighborhood. The shooting club next door was busy so you get used to the gun fire during your swings. My game was bad but not due to that. Played on 1/1 but app won’t let me submit for 2021.

Good Course/Good Value

Played 18 holes with my son today. Down here on vacation and used the Golf Now App. Found this course (and many others) but really liked this layout. 27 hole course and we played the Panther and the Gator. Nice views, challenging course and the Gator was really long. My son and I really enjoyed that. Greens were tight on par 3's and we liked that too. Course was just a bit soggy in spots, but other than that, we really enjoyed it!

A long course but less crowded

Played gator (9 holes ) and panther (9 holes). Course was muddy in spots, but greens were good and fast.
!6th & 17th holes(panther) are par 5"s and fairly long.
Started 12:50 and finished at 5 pm.

Greens have improved tremendously

Well since I've had the chance to play this course but I was pleasantly surprised with the work they've been doing with the greens. on the day I played they were extremely quick but well manicured and impressive. Then a good job improving this course.

Pretty good value

Course was reasonably priced - $25/person including cart, taxes, etc. Greens were postage stamps for the most part. It was sometimes hard to find truly flat ground on some tee boxes. Course had some pretty soaked wet spots, and a number of shots where you can’t tell whether there is water there or not. Not an easy course for beginners, but other than the above it was in reasonably good shape. Staff was very friendly. Not the greatest course, but I would go back again.
