ROLLING HILLS GOLF CLUB (407-834-6818)
Florida Golf Course Review
Rolling Hills Golf Club in Longwood (NW of Orlando) has often been referred to as Central Florida's "hidden jewel", due to its unique rolling terrain,
strategic water hazards and meticulously conditioned greens. Designed in 1926, this classic layout has an old style charm that provides challenge and playability for all levels of golfers.
Three sets of tees play to distances and slopes measuring 6431 yards/130 slope, 5953 yards/125 slope, and 5393 yards with a 116 slope for men and a
128 slope for women playing from the forward tees. The Bermuda fairways and greens were in very good shape on our early January visit, providing
consistent playing surfaces. Most fairways provide ample landing zones, and the putting surfaces are mildly sloped with gentle undulations making the
course playable for all levels of golfers.
Greenside sand traps are present on many holes, while the fairways are minimally bunkered. Water hazards come into play on just few holes. The initial
hole is uphill over water, than the course levels out over the next five holes. Beginning from hole seven on, golfers will find significant elevation changes
from tee to green. The 8th and 9th are beautiful par fours playing from elevated tee areas, providing a memorable finish to the front side.
This is a challenging course that is extremely fun to play - and with mild green complexes and ample landing zones - golfers of all abilities can enjoy a
pleasant round here. This course was formally a private facility - and only recently opened for public play. Reasonable rates make this one of the areas
best golf values. On property is a clubhouse with pro shop, restaurant/lounge plus banquet facilities for up to 250 guests. There is an aqua range and
putting green, with sand bunker and chipping area as well. Professional instruction is available. For more info, visit our page for the course, with direct link to their website by clicking here.
