Course conditions could have been better
The rough was pretty deep and some fairways were spongy. Also some greens on the back nine need work. The fairways were great, but I paid a steep price whenever I missed. Also there was a 4 some of ladies who held up play during the entire back nine and should have let everyone play thru (no rangers?). Hopefully it will be better next time I play!
No warning,that hole 17 is under repair.still we had to pay full price.golf now and the club should have advised us beforehand. The provisional hole 17 is a joke.
Several greens are in an awful condition..
The layout is beautiful.
Lots of water
Lots of tee shots over water. Accuracy off the tee can make your approach shots a lot shorter
Good not Great
Not a premier 5 star course anymore. However a nice layout for $30 a great deal yes will play there again
We had never played Cheval together so when we saw a $30 rate we jumped on it. Unfortunately it was not a good 1st impression. The golf cart kept pooping out, cart path only with soggy course conditions throughout (we only learned of the cart path only requirement after calling to report our 2nd malfunctioning cart), no 17th hole due to repairs...it just wasn't what we expected at Cheval.
I was surprised and disappointed when we played today. The tees were a little shabby, the fairways were OK, but the greens were not very good. Some had large blemishes filled with sand. We had been here a couple of months ago when most courses were being aerated. But instead of punching holes in the green, they had created rib-like furrows. I had never seen that before. Two months later, the ribs are still obvious on the green and definitely affect the roll of the ball. They tend to guide the ball if you are putting parallel to the ribs, and makes it very bumpy if you putt across them.
Also, for some strange reason, they totally forgot to mention that there is no 17th Hole! There is a new housing development going in, and the hole has been totally torn up, and you would never know that there was ever a par 3 there. I think that's something that you may want to mention on the GolfNow listing, or at least tell you in the clubhouse when you check in. The 4 of us decided we will not be back anytime soon. If I was a member here, I'd be very unhappy.
My suggestion is that if you would like to go and play 18 holes, go elsewhere.
We had a great day on the course. Can't wait go go back agai in September or October
I played this course about 10 years ago and it was first class to say the least. I played it again and was excited but found out quickly it’s not what it use to be. Course was in horrible shape. Greens recently punched and are horrible. I’ve played lots of punches greens but these are ridiculous. Won’t be going back anytime soon.
Played Cheval before 2 months ago and it was great. Fast forward to 7/21/2018 and the course was in bad shape. Plugged drives and very wet tee boxes, this course should not have been opened for play. We had to push the cart girl out of mud on the 17th hole because she got stuck.
Extremely wet. The course should not have been opened. Deep ruts all over-plugged balls on many wedges-slow greens-standing water on most of the fairways-carts battery died called pro shop for another cart they left us stranded. One of the worse days of golf I’ve ever had.
One of the few courses that compel you to stop at various locations, look around, and marvel at how beautiful everything is: course conditions, the surrounding houses, the trees, etc. A terrific bargain.
Course was in very rough shape after a lot of rain. Bunkers were washed out and fairways were very wet. Love the course usually and I'm sure it'll come around
Great greens on a layout that always plays tough
Cheval is an old favorite. The course is in fine condition and the greens were rolling great for late spring/early summer. This layout always play tough for me and I believe it's more difficult than it's close neighbor TPC Tampa Bay.
Lots of water
This is a must play course. The tee boxes to the greens were all in great shape. The challenge of the course is not only water on many holes but that there are no flat lies within 100 yards of the green or on the greens themselves. The traps were strategically placed and maintained properly. The putting surface was consistent and challenging because of the differences of contour throughout the whole course. The cart attendants provided excellent service, the only drawback that day was there were no beverage cart girls on the course. The club house was filled with several events making it difficult to get any beverages. I would go back to this course in a heart beat.
A great & challenging course.
I have lived in Tampa for over 20 years and never played Cheval. I played it for the first time on the 10th of May with the first one to tee off. The course was very well maintained, bunkers were perfect and easy to get out of, holes on the front were somewhat challenging and very open & forgiving. different story on the back 9, hole #10 is a big Par 5 and when you play it you're thinking oh this is more of the same, then when you get to #11 it gets tight really fast, after getting my butt kicked on day 1 i came back the following morning as the 1st to tee off again, and was ready for the back 9. Greens are in great shape and roll true. The fairways are also in great shape. a fun course indeed!
Wow, a must play!
Go play it, a challenging shot makers course with Forgiving soft greens! Beautiful clubhouse but a little slow.
A Tight Delight
Great course, friendly staff, unusual, tight design. Fun for everyone, and fast greens.
Driving range closed for the foreseeable future. Nice track. Fair shape. Play at will.
