EASTWOOD GOLF CLUB (407-281-4653)
Florida Golf Course Review
Eastwood Golf Club in Orlando is a par 72 championship course that one of the favorite haunts of local players. This finely conditioned layout was designed by Lloyd Clifton and
has been rated 3 1/2 stars by Golf Digest Places to Play. The property includes a grass range and practice green, plus a clubhouse with pro shop and snack area with hot and cold
sandwiches and beverages.
Approximately 66 sand bunkers adorn the layout, located greenside or near the landing zones along the fairways, and water hazards come into play on the initial 8 holes and on 5
of the nine holes on the backside. The course is finely groomed and priced reasonably for the Orlando area, which explains its popularity. As with many Central Florida courses,
the layout winds through an upscale residential community.
The fairways are gently rolling with some perimeter mounding, and lead to mildly raised green complexes that often are protected by bunkers on either side. There is a mix of open
and tree lined holes, surrounded by swamp and wetlands that are home to abundant native water fowl and wildlife. The generally wide landing areas welcome big hitters and also
are un-intimidating for beginning players.
Four sets of tee areas play to distance and slopes measuring 7176 yards/133 slope, 6528 yards/131 slope, 5955 yards/150 slope, and 5393 yards with a slope of 120 from the
forward tees. There are 150 yard stakes in the middle of the fairways on all par fours and fives, and yardage blocks are posted at 100, 150 and 200 yards. Small markers on the
flagsticks indicate front, middle or back hole locations on the mildly undulating putting surfaces.
Eastwood is a fair and enjoyable round of golf, and is always open for public play. The price is right and the property is easily accessible - just a couple miles south of the 408
(East/West Expressway) and about 10 miles west of I-4. For more info, visit our page for the course, with direct link to their website by clicking here.
