Thanks Jerebear for the comment. Made that way enrich this forum. As you can see in my original comment, I refer to slow play and people management, the kind of neighborhood it is in, and how if I was

Agreed.   What they did to Shingle Creek is worthy of being deported.           RH

Providence is a good value. ChampionsGate CC is really good. Never played Winter Haven or St. Cloud. I've usually heard good things about Royal St. Cloud.               RH

My dad and I played Eaglebrooke yesterday. The course was in decent shape. I've seen the greens in much better shape, but they were having some issues with the greens prior to COVID-19. And they are not so bad as they are slow. They provided separate carts for everybody. They have a little plastic cylinder at the bottom of the cup, but I don't see how it works.

 

The restaurant was open as well.

Just bumping an old thread here-  

We're heading back down for another golf trip in late January.  This will be our 3rd consecutive year going back. 

Between dirt cheap airBnBs's,  dirt-cheap flights, and great golf,  going back to Orlando is a no-brainer. 

We're in the process of trying to get a connection to play Bay Hill on the day we arrive.  Otherwise we'll be playing Championsgate CC for the first time.    

Also this year we'll be doing back to back days of 36holes at OCN.    Our 4some love both courses.  Very fun, great for our wolf game. And the house we rent is only 10min from there.  

 

Yet to be played on our Orlando list is Ritz, Southern Dunes, Reunion, Tranquilo, and Bay Hill.   

 

Can't wait to get back down there!

 That list would make a nice trip of seven rounds. Make sure you play Southern Dunes. Here are photo tours of those courses:

Looking to move to the Winter Garden/Windermere area around Orlando -- curious if anyone knows of any clubs that have younger memberships (under 40) that are reasonable or would i be better off just playing public courses around the area regularly.

 

My father in law is a member at a private course so ill play that fairly regularly but too expensive for me to hop on and join there lol.

Your best bets for private membership are at West Orange CC, Golden Bear Club or Orange Tree.  

There's initiation fees for all of them.  Golden Bear Club is the most expensive.  Orange Tree (where I'm a member) is a pure golf club with a great membership and money games available to everybody 3 days a week.  Lots of LPGA players there and mini-tour players as well and some Champions Tour players. 

 

Not sure what your budget is like, but you may end up just playing the public courses as there's a ton of them at usually affordable prices.  Problem is that come January they get far more expensive and the pace of play is horrendous.

Thanks for the insight! My in laws have a place basically right across the street from Orange Tree and we never even knew it was there over the last like 9 years lol. For my age the dues are pretty much in line with what i was paying up here but no initiation. Might be a good one for down the line after we've fully settled into the area.
