First Time Playing

Beautiful course next to a cemetery

I was really looking forward to to walking this beautiful 9 hole course after all of the Thanksgiving indulging. It’s a beautiful, well maintained course that passes along side stately architecture and a large cemetery. This was my first time playing adjacent to a cemetery. It caused me to consider my own mortality which was a slight distraction from my game. I would definitely play here again but, if cemeteries are not your jam then this is certainly something to consider.

Too good to be true

For 18 dollars you can play one of the best maintain ed courses in central Florida. Every time I play there I'm reminded how good it actually is. Firm breaking greens, but roll true

Great round, deceptively tuff course

maybe it is the very real thread of sending one OB and clanking an Audi, but this relatively simple and short 9 hole plays much more tough. Pace of play was acceptable, the price is right, conditions are nice. I only wish i could string together 9 good holes to make a proper score. I'll keep coming back for sure.

Winter Park 9 has great greens

Nice update of 1914 course. Greens well-defend mostly straight fairways. Everybody moves along. Fairways a bit thin here in November but good practice off tight grass lies

The fun begins when you get to the green!

This is the best 9 hole course in Florida! Not very long and plenty of birdies await ya, if you are on the correct side of the hole, do NOT short side yourself.
Staff is great, Pro shop is well-stocked and the atmosphere is 2nd to none. Could use a bar and snacks for the helmet required bomb shelter patio though. They are going to have to address a few of the tee boxes to avoid grass disappearing, i.e., #2 as it is hard to grow grass in a garage. The greens are always in good shape and the pace of play was perfect.
I still think #7 is the hardest 175-180 yards in golf!
Can't wait to play it again.
