Hawk's Landing Golf Club is home to a very pleasant resort-style, parkland golf course that wraps around the 2000-room Marriott World Centre Resort in Orlando. Just across the road (Interstate 4, that is) is Walt Disney World and a mesmerising array of attractions.
Although perhaps not a mesmeric layout, Hawk's Landing certainly contains its fair share of excellent quality bunkering and sandy waste areas. Small lakes and ponds are also in play, on 15 of the 18 holes. Apart from the towering Marriott resort hotel, there is very little other real estate you'll encounter, giving the course an attractive parkland feel.
The course is laid out on relatively flat terrain, without too much mounding. Pines and palm trees are liberally dotted around, but do not detract from the open feel of the course. Among many testing holes, the signature and bunkerless par-3 15th brings a small pond into play on the left side of a small green. Another excellent par-3 is the attractively bunkered, long par-3 17th.
The proximity of I-4 and World Center Drive can throw a bit of traffic noise into proceedings, although the roads are not visible from the course and never too distracting.
