Golf in Florida part 4 - Orlando / Florida Guide
Florida Guide > Golf
Falcons Fire Golf Club is where it all comes together! The designers have combined a resort style atmosphere with a links style course in a great location only minutes from the airport and central Florida attractions. The signature 13th hole (394 yards par 4) doglegs right accompanied by bunkers, sand and lakes. It takes a dexterous long iron to land on the spherical sloping green.
Grand Cypress Resort – North, south and East – these three nine hole courses combine for a great challenge. Accuracy is key. The North course is rigorous and open with terraced fairways and mounding while the south course emphasizes water and very narrow fairways. The East course’s fairways are even narrower, with an island green highlighting the picturesque 5th hole.
Hawks Landing Golf club encircles the Orlando World Center Marriott and caters to every level of play. The challenges of the course layout include water in play on 15 of the 18 holes, four sets of tees, distinctive rolling fairways and a nearly limitless variety of shot making demands. Also home to the celebrated Hawks Landing Golf Academy.
Highlands Reserve Golf Club is not your typical Florida golf course. Highlands Reserve sits atop one of the highest areas of Florida and offers remarkable scenery and elevation changes, along with a course designed for a great game of golf. The Championship Mike Dasher design provides players pine tree lined fairways reminiscent of the Carolinas, open spacious fairways likened to the great Scottish courses and a bit of old Florida with citrus trees coming into play throughout the course.
The one thing that all these courses will have in common is a lovely relaxing 19th hole where you can chat to your buddies about your fabulous experiences in Florida away from the hustle and bustle of shops and theme parks!
