The course is very open and many times players end up playing on the wrong fairway to get back to the one they were supposed to be on. Dangerous. The greens are WAY too short and therefore WAY too fast. The wind blows and the ball moves sometimes just as you are about to putt. Not good. Too many totally blind drives with no easy immediate way to see where you should aim your drive. It just was not an enjoyable experience.

Very Disapointing

The course was in very bad shape. Tee boxes were in the worst shape in a few years. I had dirt lies in the "fairway" more than a few times. Greens were chewed up on a few holes. And there was no help from a ranger to speed up play when we had to wait on every hole. Friendly cart beverage lady.

Course in rough shape

If you’re just looking to get out and hit some balls and enjoy the Florida sunshine this course gets the job done. Just know that it’s poorly maintained, and you’re in danger of getting hit on every other hole because of the layout. There were a lot of beginner golfers on the course the day we played but the pace of play was still decent. Staff was friendly.

Course has potential

Super slow. Up to 3 flights were waiting to tee off. After 1 1/2. hours we just were done with the 7 hole. We gave up after that.
Course was also not in great condition.

One of Seminole County's Oldest Courses

Although best known for its world-class theme parks such as Disney World and Universal Studios, the Orlando area is home to some of the best golf courses in the state of Florida, including one that hosts a PGA TOUR event every year. Many of these courses are accessible to the public and for the most part, they are in great shape and extremely playable year-round.

One area of Orlando that is often overlooked for golf is Seminole County, north and west of downtown. After a recent visit to the area and the opportunity to play both some public and private courses, I find that hard to believe. The topography of the land is not what you typic see in Florida – flat and boring; it has some roll and undulation to it – naturally! That can make for some interesting golf shots, especially the dreaded uneven lie.

Mayfair Country Club in Sanford is one of the oldest golf clubs in the area, dating back to 1922. It’s famous for being the site of Arnold Palmer’s first professional victory. There is a lot of speculation as to whether or not Mayfair is a Donald Ross design, the consensus seems to be that it is. Mayfair did host a professional tour event from 1958 to 1961 and attracted some of the top players of the day, including Gene Sarazen, Walter Hagen, Arnold Palmer, Sam Snead, Julius Boros, Don January, Doug Ford, Tony Lema, Moe Norman, and Gene Littler. The great Moe Norman has been quoted as saying that “Hole #7 was the best par 3 in Central Florida.” At only 6,403 yards from the back tees, Mayfair isn’t going to overwhelm a lot of players and for the most part, the fairways off the tee are generous. Where Mayfair gets tough is on the approach shots into small, sometimes crowned greens – another Ross trademark. You’re sure to enjoy your round out here. Numbers 2 & 12 are short par 5s if you’re playing from the back tees; 443 and 430 yards respectfully

These are just a few of the courses you can play in Seminole County; there are several more listed under the golf tab on their website. You’ll also find that the greens fees at the public-accessible courses tend to be considerably less than what you’ll find at courses out near the theme parks.

When you’re not on one of Seminole County’s fine golf courses, there is plenty to do in the area without hitting one of the nearby theme parks! Eat, drink, and shop in Historic Sanford, visit the Central Florida Zoo, go kayaking in search of manatees or just sit outside and soak up that Florida sun. Seminole County is flush with restaurants too, offering just about every cuisine imaginable.
