About OrlandoGrown-ups can have a good time in the land of Mickey Mouse, too. Dozens of premier golf courses and luxurious resorts -- coupled with the nightlife of Downtown Disney, CityWalk at Universal Studios, and Orlando Magic games -- solidify Orlando as one of golf's most diverse destinations.
Arnold Palmer's Bay Hill Club & Lodge hosts the city's only annual PGA Tour event. Greg Norman's Champions Gate Golf Club, home to a fine Omni hotel, hosts the Father-Son Challenge as well, attracting legendary dads such as Jack Nicklaus. The resort stay-and-play options from there are endless: Rosen Shingle Creek, Grande Lakes and Grand Cypress Golf Resort, all in Orlando; Mission Inn Resort & Club in Howey-in-the-Hills, and the Orange County National Golf Center and Lodge in Winter Garden.
Even the swankiest places, the Ritz-Carlton Orlando and Waldorf Astoria Orlando, have their own golf courses. Kissimmee has blossomed into its own golf mecca with Reunion Resort, Orange Lake Resorts and Falcon's Fire Golf Club. Don't miss Celebration Golf Club in Celebration, Southern Dunes in Haines City and Victoria Hills Golf Club in DeLand, either. The fun and games -- and golf -- never ends in O-town.
