Silverado Golf & Country Club is situated just north of Tampa in scenic Zephyrhills. It is a par-71 layout but for low handicappers, it can be extended to a par 72 by turning the lengthy 10th hole into a challenging par 4. The area's natural beauty is defined by the mature oaks that date back over 100 years and the abundant wildlife, including red tail hawks, geese, and foxes. The landscape provides an excellent round of golf, which is further enhanced by the year-round temperate climate. Bunkers treacherously lurk throughout and the occasional water hazard also comes into play. The golf course offers some challenging holes but overall, it is approachable for a range of skill levels. Silverado finishes with a par 4 that requires a difficult carry in order to make it past the pond in the middle of the fairway. Those who strategize carefully will be rewarded with a birdie.

This course may have seen its better days. Layout is good, but little grass on fairways, tee boxes and much of the course. Cart paths are worn out, rough, and root filled. Greens were extremely slow on the day we played it. If its your only choice to play, go for it. But if you have other choices, I suggest you try those tracks 1st

Well kept course with nice fairways and manicured greens. The greens were very slow but true. The staff could not do enough for us. After the round had a picture of beer for 6.25 can’t beat it.

Tried Silverado based on course reviews shown on Golf Now. I was VERY disappointed in the condition of the course and the layout. With the exception of #18, the fairways are hardpan and weeds. The layout is strange - with trees and even utility poles IN fairways. The only positive is the nice people staffing the course. Sorry to give such s negative review, but I must be honest.

conditions not good even though it's during overseed times. Fairways missing grass and greens lumpy and fairly slow. Stimp no more than 7 at best.

4.5 hours for course that should be able to be played easily in 3.5.

Consider USGA was 66.3 with slope of 103. Average USGA slope is considered 113 so course should play very easy and fast. Guys waiting for greens to clear on every par 4 of 320 or less but were playing senior tees (only 5000 yards from those tees). If needed to wait all that much why not play white tees at 5700 yards which still isn't that long.

This is our go to course and it’s one of the furthest from our homes. But we still choose to travel to it. The course is in excellent shape. The greens were rolling out great. Just wish I could put better lol. Fairways were plush. The staff is a great group of people. They always help us out when we need tee times or any other issues. Highly recommend playing this course. Let’s just say the Morris group will be back as always!

Course was in great shape. Tees are nice and level fairways are very short and roll out extremely well. Greens in great shape. Not sure what the 2 reviews that were posted on New Years day were talking about, they must have still been tipsy from New Years eve. No issues with tees in sand traps.

This course is always in great shape and the staff is nothing but friendly and polite. Pace of play was great, it was very cold and not many groups were out in the morning but they allowed us to play through and we finished in under 3 hours. Got a cheap hot deal on GolfNow, great value!

I was very displeased with this course over the weekend. For a time of year when many play due to great temperatures, the greens and fairways were very inconsistent and not in good shape. Many tee boxes did not have tee markers and many had all 4 tees at the same point. 1 did not have tee markers at all and started in a sand trap.

Dear Sir,

I just wanted to respond to your post on Golf Advisor from this weekend.

We held our 5th annual Klutz Open tournament on Saturday, December 30th ( I am assuming you played that day- due to your comments)

We definitely had the course set up funky that day with 4 different tee boxes on holes #7, 9 and 14- it was part of the tournament set up to make it different. We definitely did not do a good job of notifying “other” players that day and I apologize for that.

As far as the greens conditions go, I would agree that we are in a transition from overseeding for the winter and then some cold nights adding to a sort of in between length to our greens. Again, we should be better within 3-5 days but I can understand why you might be unhappy as we are normally very good in green conditions.

Please try us again and thank you for your comments

This was the second time I’ve played here, the first in over a year. Things have gotten worse. Stood in the pro shop for about 10 minutes before anyone came to check me in. Had to ask the bartender for help. Greens were super long and slow. Several tee boxes were closed for some reason and were moved up to the fairway. Believe it or not they actually moved the tee markers on a Par 4 into a sand trap 100 yards from the green. Will not be going back, there are much better courses in close proximity that cost the same or less.
