Condition Update: Silver Dollar Golf Club

Silver Dollar: 11th hole

The 11th is a short, straight-forward par 3.

I played Silver Dollar back in February of this year for the first time and found the course enjoyable and in good condition. I went back this weekend with some friends who wanted to check it out after reading my post and hearing me talk about the course.

We played the Gator and Panther nines on our Sunday afternoon round. Silver Dollar has three nines (see my previous post for details: Don’t Mind the Noise at Silver Dollar Golf Club) It had rained the day before and we had early morning intermittent showers on Sunday, so I wasn’t sure how the conditions would be.

On the front 9 of the Gator course, standing water in the sand traps was the only condition issue after the previous day's rain.

I was pleased to find the course was still in relatively good shape. It was cart path only on four holes on the Gator nine, but the tees (except for maybe the 11th hole) and the fairways were good. The sand traps however, did have standing water in the majority of them on the Gator nine. The condition of the Panther nine was fine with no issues although the sand was still a little wet. The green’s on both sides were slow, but I’m sure this was due to the rain.

Both my friends said they enjoyed the course and would play it again, as would I. Located about half an  hour from downtown Tampa, it’s a nice public course with a friendly atmosphere and not too much pressure. If you get a chance make a tee time, they have good rates anytime of day or weekend, especially in the late afternoon. For more information go to www.silverdollargolfclub.com
