Five sets of tees provide a challenge to golfers of all ability levels on this par 72 layout featuring 5 par threes and 5 par fives. The golf course can play as short as 5781 yards to an incredibly long 7021 yards from the men's tees. The two sets of tees in between measure 6147 yards and 6508 yards respectively. The ladies' tees measure 5056 yards.
Designed by Steve Smyers, this beautifully mature and 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. 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, drains well, has water in play on 17 of 18 holes, has just under 100 scenic strategically placed sand traps, and has wall-to-wall irrigation.
The drive along Cheval Boulevard past our signature holes, # 17 and # 18, is a glimpse of what our golfers experience, a challenging yet enjoyable day of golf.
The golf course underwent an extensive renovation in 2008, including new Champions Bermuda greens and completely renovated bunkers.
