There are three nines at the Silver Dollar Golf & Trap Club, which can be played individually, consecutively, or as three different 18-hole combinations. Each nine has a unique layout with different challenges but all share the same lush landscape covered with stately trees and water features. The Panther/Bobcat combination offers a mix of narrow and wide fairways, some of which are lined with trees. A few strategically placed bunkers come into play along the greensides and there are also water hazards coming into play on a number of holes. Located just northwest of Tampa along the west Florida coast, the nines represent the best of Florida golf. Silver Dollar also boasts some of the area's most affordable rates, which makes the versatile layouts doubly appealing.

Played 27 holes in 4.30hrs. by myself. Greens were a tad slow but smooth. Enjoyed the warm day and the chance to hit the odd practice shot as the course was pretty empty.

We played on ladies day and expected slow play. But the front nine took 2:25 minutes. Then, when we saw the group in front of us were only playing nine holes, we hurried to the 10th hole only to find a two some snuck in front of us so we had to wait again. Finally that group skipped 2 holes because of another slow group and we skipped 1 hole and it still took over 2 hours. I will go back again or wait until the snow birds are gone.

Quite honestly, this was the most unhospitable golf complex I have visited in my golfing career. From the check in with the guy in the pro shop to the pace of play with four people and four carts for each group.

The pro shop was well stocked and about 300% higher than most. The help there was extremely rude and did not have one ounce of customer service. I would fire that guy if he was my employee. I think he must be a work camper or something, his name tag said he was from Wisconsin or somewhere like that.

The carts are old, and in dire need of repair. This course is flat and even at that the cart barley made it around the course. As I mentioned above, most foursomes in front of us all had four carts. Mostly husband and wife combos and to say the pace was slow is an understatement. To make matters worse, don't plan on ANYONE letting you play through. The group in front of us had three open holes in front of them and would not let anyone play through.

When I approached them, they simply ignored me, and told me to wait my turn like everyone else.

The course is moderatly easy, and greens were very long and very slow. Maintenance was just so-so. Flat course.

This is a golf course located in a trailer/rv park. Loaded with people 70+ on the golf course. If you play 18 holes plan on spending at least 6 horus.

If this was the only place I had to play golf, I would give up the game.

In addition, having cement car paths throughout the course is a great idea. When you get to the tee, the sign with yardage from each tee is a great idea. You don’t see that too often. The first time I’ve ever seen an armadillo on a golf course. Overall great round.

Received a golf voucher to play the course at 1:45 but being early, got sent out early, surprisingly. We followed no one and had a single a few holes behind us. The course is challenging enough, particularly the water holes. My partner, a long hitter, ran into difficulties. Not hitting as long, I had no problems. The greens were quick & in good shape. The cart server was friendly & came around often. We got around in 3 hours, had fun & were well pleased with the course. While there is a nearby shooting range, there were few bang bangs, and not enough to be a nuisance. You can shoot a low score here if you pay attention & are careful placing your shots. Go for broke & you’ll be sorry you did.

Paying $10 to play in a cow pasture makes the local RV snowbirds happy, but for someone who lives in the area and plays golf weekly, I prefer better conditions. You get what you pay for and this course lives up to the $10 expectation. Mostly retirees that live in the trailer park are playing here. The photo of the dried up pond under course details about sums it up.
