Florida Guide > Golf

Golf courses in the Orlando area provide for the beginner to the Pro.

To a beginner it does seam rather intimidating but if you want to have a go Florida is the place to try it. All equipment is availably to hire you can hire golf carts, clubs, buy balls and tees. The weather is perfect and I have been reliably told that there are more than 28 golf courses within 30 minutes of Disney

Last year we had guests stay at our villa and played golf every day for 14 days and on some days managed 2 rounds (That’s a golf nut for you)

The courses are too numerous to mention individually but I will try to give you a general insight.

Disney World is reputed to have some of the finest golf in Orlando

They have 5 courses that form the Disney world golf they are

Walt Disney world golf Magnolia

This is the biggest of all the Disney Courses and am told by friends that have played it one of the most difficult of the Disney courses

Walt Disney world Golf Palm

This is a shorter course than the Magnolia but still a challenge with lots of water

Walt Disney world Golf Osprey Ridge

This course is a North Carolina style with excellent picturesque landscapes

Walt Disney world golf Oak Trail

This was built as a walking course back in 1980. This is a good course for beginners we found it to be the cheaper of the Disney courses

Walt Disney world golf Lake Buena vista

Non of our family actually played but we felt it seemed like an older fashioned course

The other courses that friends and family all agreed was their favorite was the Orange National course situated on Avalon Road off Hyw 192 here s 3 courses one called

Crooked cat This is a links style course and is quite unpredictable (so the hubby said)

another called panther lake This course is 7295 yards Quite impressive

and the other being National Tooth this is an executive 9 hole course just my cup of tee( so to speak)on this course they allow mum or dad to pay the fee and the kids go along .

Celebration also has an exceptionally good course and was designed by Robert Trent Senior and Robert Trent Junior. This course is rated 4 stars by Golf digest. There is also a great tavern called Windmill tavern for breakfast and lunch.

Prices for all of the courses here vary a great deal and are changeable winter and summer times so best to call for tims and prices.

I do hope this helps and it gives some of you the idea to have a go.
