Silver Dollar Golf & Trap Club - Gator/Panther Course
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.

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.
