There is a well-stocked Golf Shop, a Club House with snack bar, a practice ground and a mobile beverage cart brings cold drinks and snacks to you whilst playing.

The Florida / Orlando Disney Area region
With internationally renowned theme parks, world-class golf and an ideal climate, it doesn't get much better than Florida! In Florida the seasons vary little and whilst often known for the weather, the sunny people in the Sunshine State pride themselves on making you and your family's vacation an experience of a lifetime. Orlando is known to locals and visitors alike as "The City Beautiful".
Once a quiet town surrounded by citrus groves, Orlando was almost overnight transformed into a tourist mecca by the arrival of Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse in 1974. Other attractions followed Disney, and Orlando soon grew into a vibrant metropolitan area with world-class cultural offerings.
