Florida is a golfer’s paradise; especially during the winter, when cold weather shuts down northern golf courses. Daytime temperatures in Orlando are in the 60s and 70s in February, and by the end of March the daytime highs get closer to 80 degrees.
There are several Orlando golf courses located just minutes away from the attractions and major resort areas, so a day on the green won’t require a day trip from your hotel.
Shingle Creek Orlando Golf Club was rated as one of America’s Top 40 Best New Courses for 2005 by Golfweek Magazine. This 18-hole, 7,228 yard championship golf course was designed by David Harman who also was actively involved in the construction of Orlando’s Orange County National and Isleworth, both located in Orlando, Florida. This par 72 championship golf course lies along Shingle Creek—headwaters of the Florida Everglades.
In 2000, Golf & Travel magazine named Falcon’s Fire Orlando Golf Club one of Florida’s 50 Finest Golf Courses. This club features a Rees Jones Signature designed championship golf course, a spacious clubhouse, and an award-winning golf shop. Falcon’s Fire Club won the Winner of the 1999 Apex Award, voted #1 in the North American “Top 10 Golf Tournament Facilities” by the National Association of Golf Tournament Directors. This outstanding golf course also hosted the Oldsmobile Scramble National Finals from 1993-1997 and the Senior PGA Tour Regional Qualifying event from 1994-1998.
Just 20 minutes away from Orlando is the Remington Golf Club. This 18-hole, 7,111 yard, par – 72 championship golf course features 4 par-5’s and five sets of tees, abundant water, generous landing areas, and a contemporary design that is fair and challenging. Remington is designed to offer a fair test from every tee and an enjoyable experience for all golfers. The Remington Golf Club is located in Kissimmee, Florida.
In nearby Haines City, the Southern Dunes Golf and Country Club offers a dramatic hillside layout that stretches to over 7200 yards and features 100 feet of elevation changes not typically found in Central Florida. This award-winning course has captured the hearts of golfers throughout the world. Its charm and appeal comes from the unique characteristics of the course and the friendly southern hospitality of the staff.
If it’s just for fun, the Congo River Golf in Orlando is a miniature golf course with a bit of Floridian flair: before starting their golf game on one (or both) of the 18 hole putt-putt courses, customers can feed some baby alligators–from a safe distance, of course. Who knew that gators liked hot dogs?
With more than 300 Florida golf courses to choose from, golfers can experience the perfect Orlando vacation at any of these excellent Orlando Golf Club Resorts.
