For the second week in a row Tom Fazio's Tranquilo Golf Club at Four Seasons in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. finished atop the Golf Advisor Power Rankings.
Golf Advisor psusme1 has reviewed Tranquilo at Golf Advisor three times. "The course was in great condition, the greens were fast," he wrote in his initial review, dated May 17, 2015. "The course couldn't have been in much better shape. The staff treats you like Donald Trump from the time you pull up to the time you leave."
A certified Audubon sanctuary, Tranquilo features an Old Florida style, with live oaks throughout. Wildlife sightings are common. Following his June 13 round psusme1 wrote: "Saw deer, turkeys (and baby turkeys), herons, egrets, and many other birds. Great scenic course into the quietness of mother nature."
Bermuda's Port Royal Golf Club -- a Robert Trent Jones Sr. design renovated by Roger Rulewich in advance of the 2009 PGA Grand Slam of Golf -- also made a strong showing this week, finishing no. 2 overall and first atop the value rankings.
Similarly, the Golf Club of Estrella just west of Phoenix finished third overall and second in the value category.
