FOREST LAKE GOLF CLUB (407-654-4653)
Florida Golf Course Review
Forest Lake Golf Club in Ocoee is a 4 star (Golf Digest Places to Play) Clifton, Ezell, Clifton design that traverses 7113 yards of gently rolling terrain. The
countryside atmosphere - with no residential development - offers outstanding beauty amongst a multitude of native trees and natural lakes. It is a favorite
of locals, and is a worthwhile drive for visitors to the Orlando area - and highly recommended by twoguyswhogolf!
There are 5 sets of tee boxes that allows golfers of all abilities with an opportunity to choose a set that matches their game. Scratch players will be
challenged from the tips that measure 7113 yards with a 128 slope. alternate tees measure 6748 yards/127 slope, 6327 yards/126 slope, 5779 yards/121
slope for men and 126 for women, and 5065 yards with s lope rating of 117 for ladies hitting from the forward sets. There are 61 sand bunkers situated
near the landing zones on the fairways or greenside, and water comes into play on 8 holes - mostly on the perimeters.
Gentle elevation changes and generous fairways lead to large undulating greens, which are well maintained all year long.Most fairways are tree lined, and
but their is a good mix of open and tight driving holes. The front side is mildly rolling, while the back side has more noticeable elevation changes and also
features the par three 14th signature hole - over an expansive pond to a well bunkered green complex. The environment is incredibly serene - making us
regret that we did not have the time to play this course on our fall visit. The property is easily accessible from the turnpike, SR 429 or I-4, and is just a 20 minute drive downtown Orlando.
On property at Forest Lake is clubhouse with pro shop plus restaurant & lounge. Practice facilities include a targeted grass range, short game area with
sand bunker and putting green. There are markers on the fairways at 100, 150 and 200 yards, and Pro Shot GPS that is standard on all carts provides
accurate yardage to the center of the green. Color coded flags indicate front, middle and back pin placements.
With the secluded environment, well maintained playing surfaces, wonderful variety in hole design and very affordable rates - this is one of the best golf
values in the Orlando area. For more info, visit our page for the course, with direct link to their website by
