The distances on the par-3s vary nicely from the green tees. This is a private golf course. Soft spikes only.
300 South Daneswood Way Casselberry, FL 32707 +1 407 699 9592
This course is another of the many quality golf courses that Lloyd Clifton has designed in Central Florida. This one offers both tight and expansive fairways for your tee shots. The greens tend to be quick. This is a nicely constructed country-club golf course. Any player is within proper limitations from the back tees, and there is no brutish difficulty to be found. The problems this course throws at you are more subtle. This is a semi-private golf course. Metal spikes are tolerated but not encouraged.
With six sets of tees, this course is certain to have a set suitable for every golfer. Prior to deciding on the Tournament or Championship tees, recheck the yardages and slope ratings. The course winds through a wildlife preserve, so you will see wildlife as you play. It features broad, rolling fairways. The greens are quite large. Most of the holes are encircled by pines. All but one of the par-5s barely exceeds 500 yards, and the par-3s are short from any tees. There are also a few forced carries over water. This is a semi-private golf course. Soft spikes only.
2091 Alaqua Drive Alaqua Country Club Longwood, FL 32779 +1 407 333 2582
This is a soft golf course. There will be very little roll on any shot you hit. As with most Gary Player designs, this is target golf. Alaqua's tees and fairways are elevated. The average player should be playing from the Blue or Gold tees. The par-3s are short and exacting. Even from the most challenging tees, there aren't any overly long holes. This is a private golf course. Soft spikes only.
This course is notable primarily for the waste areas that pop up everywhere. It also has large, interesting greens. There are all sorts of slopes and ridges to conquer once you reach the putting surface. There are several short par-5s. The par-3s are all at 200 yards and longer from the Green tees. They are reduced to a less formidable 140 yards or so from the White tees. On this course, the average golfer belongs on the Blue tees. Forest Lake Golf is a public golf course. Soft spikes only.
The course at Celebration Golf Club was designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr. and Robert Trent Jones, Jr. It was completed in 1996. Only one of its holes is free of water hazards. It is not long, but it is certainly narrow enough to present an adequate challenge. There are a variety of green sizes and shapes. Some are big and some are tiny. You will also hit your share of both long and short shots. The bunkering is sparse but efficient. The course is routed through a beautiful piece of wetland featuring an assortment of trees. This is a semi-private golf course. Soft spikes only.
8207 National Drive Melbourne, FL 32940 +1 321 259 9060
Gary Player is fast assembling a portfolio of well-designed golf courses. Bay Tree National is one of them. There are lots of sand traps and a substantial number of mounds to contend with on this course. The course is in excellent shape. The par-5s are all roughly 490 to 510 yards long from the Men's tees. The par-3s flirt with 200 yards or more from the furthest tees. Their length is substantially less from the tees where mere mortals play. This course is a gem. This is a semi-private golf course. Soft spikes only.
18000 Eagles Way Tavares, FL 32778 +1 352 343 7550
This 1994 Joe Lee design is situated on a 400-acre island in Lake Dora. This location provides a remarkable natural setting for this magnificent-looking golf course. The course has the customary Lee bunkers scattered everywhere. The fairways are broad, which makes for an excellent experience with the driver. The greens provide multiple slopes on most putts. The par-5s are only long from the Gold tees, and the length of the par-3s is within reason. This is a semi-private golf course. Only soft spikes are allowed.
Ridgewood Lakes is an open course with very generous landing areas and big, flat greens. There is water on every hole of this Ted McAnlis design. And if you're silly enough to opt for the Gold tees, it's pretty long as well. The par-5s are all of ample length. One of the par-3s stretches to 213 yards from the Gold tees. This is a semi-private golf course. Only soft spikes are allowed. The Ridgewood Lakes Golf & Country Club also features a clubhouse and a restaurant.
This beautiful course originally was designed by Ron Garl and was redesigned by Bobby Weed. It has a considerable amount of water, elegant trees, and huge sand traps. The two nines have very different looks. The front side has a distinct links feel. The back nine has tall trees and water and much-dreaded waste areas. This is a semi-private golf course. Metal spikes are tolerated but not encouraged.
