IMPERIAL LAKES GOLF CLUB (863) 425-1154
Florida Golf Course Review
Imperial Lakes is a 6684 yard, 18-hole championship value oriented course built over a gently rolling terrain, with tree lined fairways leading to slightly raised green complexes.
Located in Mulberry, just south of Lakeland, it also is a convenient round for visitors to the spring training camps situated all around the area.
Detroit Tiger fans may be interested to know that Al Kaline has frequented this course, and the son of Lou Whittaker worked there for a period of time. The convenient location and
reasonable price structure make this a favorite of locals and visitors alike. There is a pro shop on property, and the clubhouse features a restaurant/lounge serving lunch items
from 11 am to 3 pm daily.
Practice facilities include a grass range and putting green, and on course yardage markers are posted on the cart paths and fairways at 100, 150 and 200 yards. Small markers on
the flagsticks provide indication of front, middle or back hole locations on the slightly raised, mildly undulating putting surfaces.
The fairways are tree lined along a mildly rolling terrain, with large sand traps often situated near the landing zones. In total there are 70 soft sand bunkers, and water hazards
come into play in the form of ponds or lakes on 13 holes. Numerous doglegs are shaped by rows of trees or water hazards.
Five sets of tee areas play to distances and slopes measuring 6684 yards/133 slope, 6363 yards/131 slope, 6055 yards/126 slope, 5633 yards/131 for women and 499 yards with
a slope of 119 for ladies playing from the forward tees. While the landing zones are ample, there is enough trouble lurking, to make this an interesting experience for all levels of
Imperial Lakes is an old, traditional and somewhat rustic golf experience, with a value oriented price structure. For more info, visit our page for the course, with direct link to their
