A look at Shingle Creek Golf Club: Convenience, beauty and challenge in Orlando

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Located just a couple of minutes from International Drive and the Orange County Convention Center, Shingle Creek Golf Club is one of Orlando's most popular daily-fee and resort courses not only because of its location but also because of its beauty, playability and conditioning.

Designed by David Harman, the 7,069-yard, par-72 golf course offers five sets of tees. There's water on 15 of the 18 holes at Shingle Creek, which is named after the historic creek that runs throughout the resort. At the center of the resort is the Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel, which features restaurants, a spa, plenty of meeting space and top-notch accommodations.

The resort and the golf course is also home to the Brad Brewer Academy of Golf, where guests can take lessons or clinics or use Shingle Creek's expansive practice facilities.
