Marriott's Grande Pines Golf Club: GOLF COURSE PERMANENTLY CLOSED IN 2014. Marriott's Grande Vista Resort (across International Drive from Grande Pines) remains open, and remains home to a nine-hole golf course and Marriott Golf Academy (formerly a Faldo Golf Institute).

[Original Where2Golf description]: The 18-hole Grande Pines golf course is located just off Orlando's International Drive. Formerly known as the International Golf Club and completely revamped in 2004 by Steve Smyers and Nick Faldo, Grande Pines is an excellent central-Florida layout that brings plenty of bunkering into play on every hole, and small lakes and ponds on many.

Very testing opening tee shot with water running up the right side of a not overly wide fairway. Several other quite tight and testing drives to make on your way round. Plenty of small pine trees and Florida swamp line the holes. Resort condos flank some of the holes, but are generally tucked away behind the pines, allowing the layout to retain a predominantly natural feel. Nicely rolling, tightish fairways, lead you towards fiendishly undulating greens, which are often defended by deep bunkering.

Each hole throws down a strategic challenge that requires the best in your game to score well. Pick of the holes includes the excellent par-4 6th defended by a lake on the left side and the par-4 10th played to a substantially raised and heavily bunker defended green.

This challenging and enjoyable layout, has lots of visual variety and many testing drives, backed-up with significantly mounded and bunkered greens. Water menacingly lurks to the side of several greens.
