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.

Great course, pace a bit slow, but overall in great shape for the $.
Greens burned out on 5-6 holes in spots.
To start with we arrived and there had been a mix up with golf now reservation Cheval had us down to play only the following week but they arranged it so we could play anyway after a 45 min. Drive and looking fwd to playing we were very happy they accommodated us The course is beautiful great condition very challenging , not for beginners The club house is very nice indoors
It’s a must try and we would go back
Only negative is that they had top dressed the greens and they were rough.
Greens Need Work!
This could be a 5 star golf course if the greens were as good as most of the fairways. Also some traps had no sand in them, just a veneer of sand over packed down mud.
This course has a wonderful layout and combination of some very tough holes along with some easier ones. Driving is made a bit easier due to fairly wide fairways in most cases. They recently re-opened the 17th hole, a tough par 3. In my opinion the greens are not mature enough to resist a lot of damage. There were many ball marks and scars on this green. That's a shame.
Most of the greens were covered by a green sandy top dressing thick enough that some idiot wrote messages in them. Much of the top dressing also looked like it had bits of shells in them, creating a very bumpy path. They may have to start including a broom on the cart along with the rake.
I hope they are able to bring these greens back to where they should be. Then it would be a must-play.
Excellent on all counts! Can't wait to play again.
Great Value for the Money
Lush fairways; True greens; Challenging holes; Finished in 3.5 hours; Friendly staff; Great layout; New 17th hole nice addition. Only negative is back nine has a few greens that still need work. One of my favorite courses in Tampa Bay area.
Fairways good, greens were still growing from overseeing.
The fairways were in good shape. The greens were a little spotty in places. Looks like a lot of traffic has been on the greensn and they need more time to grow. Overall, a good experience.
Enjoyable n challenging
Fairways n greens in excellent shape water on every hole nice lay-out challenging but rewarding gps staff very friendly beautiful course
Challenging course. Great layout. Cart paths in good shape. Tee boxes and greens good be in better shape compared to others in the area but still ok. All in all a good course and a great round.
Pleasant place for sure
I played this place years ago and I wasn't expecting much knowing they are getting it back together but seriously impressed with the condition and the fact they scheduled tee times 9 minutes apart
really helps to give people some space the starter there is the same guy and he's awesome and the bar and grill or whatever restaurant has some pretty fantastic food I had the bacon lettuce and tomato with goat cheese
For a guy like me that shoots below 80 this place is a pleasure to play for sure as of now
Worst greens I have played in weeks.....Absolutely dissatisfied with what they charge for a game here...don't waste your time or money...
Nice interesting layout. Conditions good except for a few tees and greens. Slow fore some ahead of us would not let us go through. Would gladly play there again.
Good round ,not a easy course lots of water but a very good layout. Considering being a member. I will return.
The staff here were some of the best I’ve seen. Greeted you at your car and even wiped down your clubs after the round. The course was in fair shape but the design is great, very challenging.
The whole course was excellent.
The course was in great shape. The greens were full and holding approach shots. The fairways were green and almost every shot was off of grass. it was a pleasure to play. Would recommend the course to anyone.
A nice neighborhood course
I played this course several times last year and tried it again this week. The course is in fairly good conditions with a few rough spots. The new 17th hole is open and playable. The pace of play was right at 4 hours. Ill be back
