With a name meaning 'quiet waters' in the Seminole language, Okeeheelee Golf Course is situated amidst lush, rolling hills that overlook the sparkling waters of Clear Lake. There are 27 championship holes that are divided into three nines and can be played in three different 18-hole combinations. The Osprey, Heron, and Eagle nines are named after the various wildlife that can be seen throughout. Each golf course offers a different set of challenges and scenery. Okeeheelee's Osprey/Heron Course features a variety of elevation changes. There are scenic views from the elevated greens but don't become too distracted since there are many elements to contend with including towering trees, strategically placed bunkers, and deep rough lining the fairways. There are also plenty of water hazards coming into play.

All was excellent except the starter was close to be very impolite. Very sarcastic. No need for that when you serve the public.

Amazing conditions

This course is in immaculate condition despite the heavy traffic it gets, which goes to tell you that it's all about the TLC its staff gives it. I had an early tee time, and was paired with guys that played at a decent pace, so the round lasted less than four hours, which is unheard of at Okeeheelee. I played the Eagle and Osprey. The eagle is a beast of a challenge, the Osprey was a little more forgiving but still challenging. I'm glad my game was on point which made for a really enjoyable round. For a short hitter like me, with drives averaging between 220-240 yards, the gold tees are a perfect challenge. The tee boxes were perfect, nice and flat and perfectly trimmed with good grass. The fairways were in great shape, and last but not least the greens were immaculate and rolled pretty true and fast. If you want to play at a course with a great layout, in excellent condition, and that's affordable, then look no further.

Great course, great people

Sunday, beautiful weather, full tee sheet and still the starter found me - a single - a slot. 3 nines helps but the starter made it happen. All fairways are in super shape, even after several rainy days. The green are fast but run true. A few idiots drove thru wet areas even after we yelled, but the rangers are ucyclenarmed so what can you do!

What a course

Okeeheelee is beautiful and the course is awesome. I love the layout and the degree of difficulty is your choice between 5 tees. The new superintendent has made this course a great venue for all. The fairways are immaculate and the greens are pure and roll very nicely.
Several greens can be challenging depending upon the pen placements, but still fair.
3 championship courses are enough to satisfy my appetite so I have made Okeeheelee my home course.
Great staff and facilities with food and drinks and a bucket of golf balls on the driving range or maybe fine-tuning your putting on a massive and well-maintained practice green, ENJOY!
