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.
