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.

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.
Good value and fast play
I’ve played Cheval many times and enjoy the layout and challenge of the course. It has been a bit wet but the course handles the water well. I really appreciate the ranger keeping groups moving. It makes the round enjoyable rather than waiting to play.
Would like to see the club improve its practice range. LO
The course is definitely being neglected as evident from the fairways. The layout is good and definitely challenging. Just wish the course was in a better condition for the price
Played in the middle of the day on a Monday and had the course pretty much to myself. The course was in excellent condition with very minor wet areas, great fairways and great greens. The course is very penalizing if your not accurate off the tee. Will play again in future
Course in really good shape considering the rain. Back 9 was a little wet, but overall very good. Challenging course so watch your placements off the tee - easy to go long and into trouble.
I booked this course based on an online review and was not disappointed,. This course has been private for most of its existence. The course is in great shape. It should be a must play while available. And the discounted rate is probably the best value on Golf Now.
