HUNTERS CREEK GOLF CLUB (407-240-4653)
Florida Golf Course Review
With five sets of tees playing from 5,225 to 7268 yards, Hunter's Creek Golf Club in Orlando presents a formidable challenge for golfers of all skill levels.
83 soft sand bunkers are scattered about the property, which also includes 10 lakes that create hazards on 13 of the holes. The course ws the
recreational centerpiece to an expansive planned residential community encompassing 6 square miles and 4,000 acres.
On property is a large targeted grass range and putting green. An upscale clubhouse - includes a 1,200 square foot golf shop, restaurant/lounge, locker
rooms with showers plus banquet/outing facilities. The course provides 150 yard stakes plus yardage blocks at 100, 150 and 200 yards on the fairways.
Pin placements are located on the scorecard.
Mid to high handicappers would seem to have their hands full playing from the 7,268 yard championship tees (132/75.1), with par some lengthy par fours
and a 602 yard par 5. Four other sets of tees are available - 6856 yards with slope/rating of 127/72.7, 6482 yards (124/70.9), 5803 yards (117/67.9 for
men and 125/73.3 for women) and 5225 yards with a slope/rating of 119/70.0. This Orlando, Florida golf course offers a fair yet demanding test for golfers of all skill levels.
Large, sloping putting surfaces are mildly undulating but are usually sloped from back to front, and are often raised and framed by bunkers on each side.
Greenside mounding is mild in nature, affording ample opportunities for recoveries. The fairways are generally tree lined with pines and provide ample
landing zones. We found the course to be in wonderful condition from tee to green.. The terrain is gently rolling, and the course design is quite varied with
shot shapes bending in either direction. Architect Lloyd Clifton added plenty of diversity to this layout with the addition of the numerous lakes.
Hunters Creek is a beautiful golf course that is easily accessible from the Disney area, and affords reasonable rates year round. Those who love to hit
driver will have their fill here, as long tee shots are called for on many holes. The elements of wind, water, vegetation and sand also make for an
interesting experience. For more info, visit our page for the course, with direct link to their website by clicking here.
