South Orlando Golf

This page covers golf courses in the south of the Orlando area. This does not include the recommended courses on the home page. These courses are less than a 30-minute drive from Disney World. If you’re visiting and looking for some alternatives, beyond the courses at or next to Disney World, these are some good choices.

Orange County National

Orange County National has 2 18 hole golf courses and 1 executive course. The practice facilities are excellent, one of the best in Central Florida.

There is also a lodge at the facility. As I live here, I’ve never stayed in the lodge, but it’s good for a golf getaway weekend. The clubhouse has a good selection of draft beers and pretty good food, for lunch after your round.

Crooked Cat Golf Course at Orange County National

Personally, I consider Crooked Cat to be the more difficult of the 2 18 hole courses. I generally score 6 to 10 strokes higher on this course over Panther Lake.

Eagle Creek Golf

Eagle Creek is a nice neighborhood golf course. It’s located west of the airport and south. It’s a little bit of a drive from Disney World, but worth it.

Falcons Fire Golf Club

The last time I played here was 2017. Time to make the drive down. This course actually has a Kissimmee address, but it’s the north end, closer to south Orlando. This is a really nice golf course, and it’s a bit of a drive from the Disney World area.

Orange Lake Golf Resort

There are 2 18 hole courses and 2 9 hole courses. The 2 18 hole courses are Legends and Reserve courses. I’ve played Legends many times. I really don’t remember playing the Reserve course. Time to get out there and play it.

I don’t generally play 9 hole courses. In this case, for me, it’s a 50-minute drive and I am not going to drive that far for a 9 hole course. If you are staying at the resort and have time, I’m sure they are worth a play.

I don’t have any pictures at this time.
