Cheval, a meticulously maintained course, meanders through Cheval Development's gated community where cypress trees abound along with native Florida wildlife including deer, alligators, otters, eagles, wading birds and more.

This par 72 layout features six sets of teeing distances that provide a challenge to golfers of all levels. Three sets are individually rated and sloped for women at 4873, 5513 and 6030 yards. Four sets are rated and sloped for men, beginning with a distance of 6030 yards (popular with our senior members) and followed by our regular tees at 6419, our championship tees at 6710, and our pro tees at 7145.

Our large practice facility includes target greens, distance markings, a practice greens-side bunker, a practice fairway bunker, large putting green and separate pitching green. Our huge practice tee, including a lesson tee area, always assures a good grass lie.

Large elevated tees provide for optimum conditions and large landing areas around the well-bunkered elevated hand-mowed greens provide a picturesque setting unequaled in Greater Tampa Bay. Not the typical Florida course, Cheval has elevation changes, is well drained, has nearby water on 17 of 18 holes, has just under 100 scenic strategically placed sand traps, and has wall-to-wall irrigation.

Clubhouse facilities include nicely appointed men's and ladies' locker rooms, shoe services, well stocked golf shop, and casual golfer's Terrace Grille overlooking Lake Cheval. Housed at our nearby Community Club are fine dining, nine Har-Tru clay tennis courts with full service tennis shop, a competition length swimming pool, fitness center, children's playground and full basketball court.

Course Notes:

Lots of water off the tee makes the landing areas tight and puts a premium on accuracy. Overall length of course leaves you with a medium iron for a second shot. Small to medium size greens are undulating, providing a good challenge to most golfers.

Rated 2.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Wet, wet, wet ... This course is unplayable when wet. Balls land in the fairway, plug and disappear. I lost four that way today. Chipping and pitching off wet, muddy grass is an adventure. The greens were in good shape but it's getting to the green that's the problem. Carts have GPS but if you can't drive to your ball on the fairway, what's the point? Also, the course winds through a residential community and some holes are as much as 1/4 mile apart. You'll be spending way too much time just riding around from hole to hole. There's water just about everywhere. You're bound to hear noise from mowing, construction and so on. Not sure it's worth the bother even when dry. Better play TPC Tampa Bay or Fox Hollow. August 21, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by If you're not a member, don't bother! A course that's filed for bankruptcy better learn to treat non-members with a little more respect. There is no map on the scorecard, no GPS in the cart, so those who have never played the course, like myself, had no way of knowing where any hazard started or stopped other than what you can see from where you are. It's a very challenging course that could have been a good experience but instead left a very foul taste in my mouth. Members do not need tee times, can go as singles or pairs, and you the guest must let them all through. Then when you make it back to the clubhouse after completing 9 holes in just over 2 hours, you are publicly berated for your pace, ettiquette, ability, and integrity. It's a competitive market out there, spend your golf dollars somewhere where they are happy to have you enjoy their course. March 20, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by A great layout with water in play on 16 holes. Two tough finishing holes. Overall, this is a great layout with lots of water, marshes, trees, etc.. In the winter months, have seen lots of deer. Tee shots on the par 4's are generally to large fairways whereas the par 5's have tighter landing areas. To me, the key on the par 5's is the second shot which needs to be accurate to set up my 3rd shot (I don't hit a long ball). Good variety of layouts on the par 3's. The last two holes are difficult. Two of the more difficult finishing holes in the Tampa Bay area. Greens were in very good condition but were slow. First time I encountered slow greens at Cheval. Good practice facility and excellent food. December 10, 2013
