Silver Dollar Golf & Trap Club - Gator/Panther Course
Located just northwest of Tampa, Silver Dollar Golf & Trap Club sprawls across the lush landscape of the west Florida coast. The club offers three nines: the Gator, the Panther, and the Bobcat. The nines can be played individually for a quick round or in three different 18-hole combinations. The Gator/Panther layout offers a good balance of challenges and player-friendly features. Narrow, tree-lined fairways are complemented by generous landing areas. There are sparkling lakes and ponds that come into play on a few holes and strategically placed bunkers are situated along the greensides. In addition to the three golf courses, Silver Dollar boasts one of the area's most extensive practice facilities, which includes a full driving range, two putting greens, a pitching and chipping green with a sandtrap, and three practice holes.

Beautiful, Fun and challenging course
Great course. Really enjoyed our round of golf. Staff in the pro shop is a little grumpy and.unhappy though.
Pretty good value
Course was reasonably priced - $25/person including cart, taxes, etc. Greens were postage stamps for the most part. It was sometimes hard to find truly flat ground on some tee boxes. Course had some pretty soaked wet spots, and a number of shots where you can’t tell whether there is water there or not. Not an easy course for beginners, but other than the above it was in reasonably good shape. Staff was very friendly. Not the greatest course, but I would go back again.
This gem of a course is hidden just outside Tampa. Three 9 hole courses on property. We enjoy playing here. Will be back soon.
Yes then No
I like this course for the money however I have a beef concerning the carts. When golf courses were allowed to reopen all of the courses I played had rules in place to keep the patrons as safe as possible. This included 1 person per golf cart. Now that we're in phase 3 of re-opening this course seems to think that social distancing is no longer a thing. We specifically asked if it was one person per cart and they said yes but if we wanted to ride together then take a cart that has the divider in it. Well we took individual carts and as we were teeing it up to tee off here comes the ranger telling us that we HAD to be in one cart. We specifically asked that question to start with. Seems as though they changed their mind and now they want to charge us another $10 each for individual carts. There was a single that we let play through and I asked him if he had to pay an extra $10 for his cart and he said NO. After the round I asked about this anomaly and the answer they gave is "that's what corporate decided". I said when, just now. What a bunch of BS. They did have new carts though. Maybe this is how they help pay for them.
Nice course for the money.
Challenging course with hazards left and right. Greens a little rough right now but course is in great shape.
Greens were soft and green
Greens are awesome, sponges and better than some of the more renowned courses I have played. This was my first time here, and they could not have been more patient with my teammate, who was learning after a 20 year layoff. Fairways we nice, a bit too much water for a beginner, but definitely a lot of wildlife, breezes and calm play. Nice quiet afternoon.
Silver Dollar is worth the money
My wife and friends of ours were just out there Saturday October 3rd. Fairways could still use some work but the greens were in good shape bunkers were raked and everything else was in decent shape. The staff there is great and the carts are newer. If your golf course doesn't need to be perfectly manicured then Silver Dollar is reasonably priced and more than playable.
Tee boxes need work
Fairways and greens in good condition. The tee boxes are terrible. They are torn up, hardly any grass and hard to find a level surface.
Still an excellent course and great value. Best carts around.
My wife and I played the Gator and The Panther for the first time. We do not live that far from the course so I am embarrassed to say it was our first time. I wasn't really expecting much thinking it was a pitch and put type of course. Boy was I wrong. This golf course is all you can handle. Small and elevated greens on the Gator! A mixture of holes, from short par threes's to monster par fives (595).
There is a sense of order to this course which has no broken tees on the tees and no trash on the course. The names of each nine fits Florida and this course is Florida!
We enjoyed our round. The roug, however, needed a lower setting on the mower. We lost balls just off the fairway.
