Classic Florida resort experience

Bigger and newer resort courses have debuted since Hawk's Landing at the Orlando Marriott World Center near Disney World, but this 1986 Joe Lee layout remains very pleasant and interesting thanks in part to a 1999 update by architect Bob Cupp. It can be narrow, with lots of water and sand, and tips out at just about 6,700 yards, so some of the stud local and visiting golfers might want a course that tips out a bit longer.

But this facility knows its niche: resort golf for a wide variety of handicaps. The course is set up and managed to cater to everyone, and the result is a fair, well-paced round with a lot of water features and fountains. There are some nice touches here, from an attentive staff before/during/after the round, as well as USB ports in the carts, GPS and complementary cold apples at the turn.

Based on the many resort courses I've played in the area, the layout is most comparable to Disney's Lake Buena Vista, as it's not very long, but there is enough water and tough shots to make things interesting, and a quiet experience near the theme parks.

You don't have to be a resort guest to play here, andtThe golf club is steps from the hotel, where you can visit numerous 19th hole options like High Velocity Sports Bar.

Great course

First time playing the course. The course is challenging, but fun. The course is in great shape. The staff was great. We were first out so we set the pace and nobody caught us. I will play this one again.

One of the best

One of the best courses in the area. Course was in great shape. My only criticism is the last hole no. 18. The island green is really tough to hold.

One Of The Best

This track is in great shape. The greens are healed from the punching and running smooth. Don’t be afraid to move up a tee or two, don’t the the yardage fool you. The staff is one of the best in the business, always polite, professional, and friendly. They have great attitudes which provides for a great atmosphere. Nothing could be better, but I do want my two balls back I lost on 18 today (one long right one short left).

BE prepared

It's a difficult course, and one must realize it is a par 70 so they should adjust the yardage that they choose to play. 6700 yards is in effect much longer. The back 9 has alot of water and forced carries. I enjoy the challenge but be aware this is not some wide open resort course for tourists.
