Golfing paradise, a destination that meets the desires of all

Bella Collina is nestled amongst orange groves and woodlands, overlooking the vineyards of Central Florida and two lakes, Lake Apopka and Lake Siena. Bella Collina sits on more than 1,900 acres of rolling hills providing a natural and serene setting for those wishing to take a step back from the hustle and the bustle of the city.

From its longest tees, Nick Faldo’s course design measures more than 7,500 yards. Using the Highlands rolling terrain as his inspiration, Faldo has created a traditional valley-style course for Bella Collina. Unique to Central Florida, the course features open fairways and sweeping dunes. The design takes advantage of the long sweeps of the hillside and forest where parts of two holes are now located.

The North, South, and East Nines offer a variety of mental and physical stimuli that test accuracy rather than strength and distance. The original North-South combination, marked by sharply ledged fairways, tall shaggy mounds, and plateau greens perched above water or sand, is a demanding, target-style test. The sportier, more wooded East Nine is more generous, with less bunkering (particularly in front of the greens) allowing for more run-up shots.

Within these 27 holes, the Jack Nicklaus Signature-designed North, South, and East Nines provide three distinctly unique 18-hole masterpieces. For the full round of 18, courses can be combined as the North-South, South-East, or East-North Course. Each combination provides a distinctive playing experience, which will challenge even the best of golfers.

In 2007 and 2008, the original North South Course was renovated and redesigned. Jack Nicklaus came back to Grand Cypress to change play on several of the holes. The end result is a longer course featuring course conditions that are even more grand than before.

The New Course adds another dimension of play to the Orlando golf scene with steeper and more challenging bunkers and slopes. Set in the midst of an open meadow, the New Course is Jack Nicklaus’ tribute and homage to the famed Old Course at St. Andrews, Scotland. This Scottish links masterpiece is complete with double greens, stone bridges and walls, gorse mounds, burns, and pot bunkers as deep as 12 feet… all in the spirit of true Scottish original.

Very little water comes into play on the New Course, but when it does it just may surprise you. Very few trees are located within the interior of the course, creating plenty of room to drive the ball. However, even the best of drives will be challenged, as even the slightest slice or fade can cause the best of golfers to find themselves looking in the wrong fairway for their ball.

When the town of Harmony’s stewards approached celebrated golf course designer, TV personality and 1973 U.S. Open Champion Johnny Miller, their goal was to create a gem of a course while preserving their original treasure- 11,000 acres of broad meadows, towering stands of southern pines and two shimmering 500 – acre natural lakes. By wrapping the course around existing wetlands, Miller created a stunning combination of art and nature. Incredibly, no homes will be built that front the golf course. The ancient land where Harmony Golf Preserve lies is home to tremendously diverse plant and animal life, including fawns and adult deer, otters, sandhill cranes, bobcats, foxes, ospreys and owls, as well as hundreds of types of plants, including at least one kind of rare orchid. Harmony Golf Preserve won’t spare amenities, however. Guests can take advantage of complete practice facility, featuring a driving range, putting green and chipping area, while a magnificent 18,000 -sq foot clubhouse offers a professional shop, men’s and ladies’ locker rooms, taproom and a banquet facility.

Las Colinas offers quite a different challenge from El Campéon. Its wide-open fairways and gentle rolling hills create an inland links design. Greens are large and undulating, while this Orlando area course’s classic, old-architecture style demands proper shot placement. The signature hole is the par 5, 12th hole – “Alligator Alley.” It spans 493 yards along a tree-lined fairway and requires absolute accuracy from tee-to-green.

Crooked Cat presents golfers more of a links-style look. It may well be the most naturally beautiful Orlando Florida golf course. The course’s open feel encourages golfers to grip it and rip it off the tee, and there is certainly more room for error and multiple options for playing a hole, both off the tee and into the greens.

Experience this remarkable new orlando golf course, which takes its name from the pristine creek, which traverses the property. Early Central Florida settlers, circa 1800, were drawn to the area by the abundance of game, fishing, ancient cypress trees, and of course, the beautiful creek.

Those early pioneers used the creek well, logging the cypress trees, which were floated down stream to a nearby mill and eventually made into shingles for their homes. Thus the name – Shingle Creek. Today we know that Shingle Creek is part of the natural headwaters of the Florida Everglades, located some 140 miles south of Orlando. The ancient waters of Shingle Creek wind through the elegant new mega resort like a dowager’s necklace – slinky, shiny, and sparkling with hidden treasure. You may even add something round, dimpled and expensive to her cache, making you a contributor to historic bounty!

Orlando Golf at Shingle Creek is many things, but ordinary is not one of them. Why choose Shingle Creek Golf Club instead of our competition? It’s simple. We have no competition.

Stoneybrook Golf Club is an exciting championship golf course with a reputation for excellent greens and great course conditions that will challenge every aspect of your game from tee to green. The quintessential ‘Old Florida’ style of Clifton, Ezell, and Clifton Design is very evident at Stoneybrook Golf Club.

The fairways are large and well defined; large bunkers are used as directional targets as much as for hazards and the greens are spacious and undulating, usually featuring one predominant ridge or tier.

There is plenty of water and yet no hole seems tricked up or forced, as they are on many modern designs in fact the course has a definite air of ‘dignified maturity.’ The par 72 course plays 6,820 yards from the tips and offers three additional sets of tees so that the course can be enjoyed by players of all abilities.

This Orlando golf course is a showcase of tiered rolling greens, naturally tree-lined fairways and strategic carries over preserved wetlands and waterways and an abundance of wildlife. Each hole plays out a strategy of its own. Some holes place a premium on the tee shot, while others demand an exacting approach. One thing for sure – you’ll need all of your clubs in your bag to play Stoneybrook Golf Club.

The Rolling Oaks Course provides the second world-class layout at World Woods. An entirely different, yet no less enjoyable experience than playing Pine Barrens, this course’s name also gives clue to its design.

Despite being built directly adjacent to the Pine Barrens Course, differences in soil content allow the land to support giant Oak trees draped with Spanish moss that regularly accent the holes. Sharply defined bunkers filled with bleached white sand contrast beautifully with the rich green fairways. These attributes coupled with the many Azalea bushes present in the landscaping are reminiscent of the famed Augusta National.

The beautiful rolling fairways that lead to undulating greens add drama to this more traditional course design. Many changes in hole style and length create a great blend of holes that requires a variety of shots and a strategic approach to score well.
