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.

I never give bad ratings but …

I have played on rough courses before but this was really bad.
The pro shop told me course was wet understandable with All the rain we have had. But the fairways were in rough condition. The grass was so long on the fairway..

Decent for the money.

The par three holes were a good test of different clubs in the bag. If the fairways were mown it would make the view from the tee boxes more appealing. Rough was entirely too high, I guess due to recent rain. Overall a decent track for a cheap price.

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.

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.

NOT FRIENDLY

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.
