Where2Golf says: 

International Golf Club (formerly called Deer Island Country Club) is located in an area of large lakes an hours' drive to the north-west of Orlando, This excellent course straddles the length and breadth of Deer Island, surrounded by the large expanses of Lake Dora and Lake Beauclair.

Laid out on relatively open flat terrain, an increasing number of properties flank some parts of the course, but generally there's an open natural feel to this "easy on the eye" layout. Good width flattish fairways are attractively mounded and bunkered with smooth-lined, sharp-edged, stylish bunkers. The elegantly crafted greens and green surrounds are always presented in excellent condition.

In this watery, lakeside environment it's no surprise that water is in play on most holes with many small lakes skirting the greens and fairways. In this wonderfully quiet and peaceful environment, the sense was originally something akin to golfing in a wildlife sanctuary, although the building of more housing around the course in recent years has taken the edge off the layout's naturalness.

MOST MEMORABLE HOLE: The short, risk-reward, par-5 16th is one of several excellent golf holes. Here you'll find swamp and woodland lining the hole's right side and a menacing cluster of bunkers and a pond guarding the green.
