Shingle Creek Golf Club

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 2003

Shingle Creek Golf Club: With a ready supply of water from nearby Shingle Creek, don't be surprised to discover that small lakes and ponds play an important part in this enjoyable and excellently presented David Harman design.

Laid out on generally open terrain, plenty of mounding and contouring have been used to break up the innate flatness of the surroundings. Looking out from the tee and approaching the greens, you'll see a plethora of stylish bunkers lying in wait for anything hit too far offline. Maturing trees provide an increasing visual separation between the well-spaced fairways, while rippling earthmounds are also deployed to give good definition to each hole.

One exception to the typically well-bunkered and water-defended theme, is the par-3 7th, where neither sand nor water threaten. The two longest par-3s, the 5th and 17th holes, are more in keeping with the rest of the layout, both attractively bunkered with water also in attendance.

On the east side of the course a large wetland area, with woodland beyond, provides the main scenic interest, while the imposingly large Rosen Shingle Creek hotel is seldom out of view. The top-quality greens are home to plenty of subtle slopes and breaks, ensuring your skills with the putter will be thoroughly tested. An excellent course, that's well worth a visit.

Did you know?

Shingle Creek, headwaters to the Florida Everglades, passes through and gives its name to Rosen Shingle Creek. Early pioneers who first settled in central Florida in the 1800s, used the creek for logging cypress trees. The logs were floated to a nearby mill and eventually made into shingles for their homes, hence the name Shingle Creek. Starting in Orlando, waters from the creek flow through the Kissimmee chain of lakes, down the Kissimmee River, eventually reaching Lake Okeechobee and the famed Florida Everglades. | Rosen Hotels, the largest independent hotel company in Florida, was built up by Harris Rosen, who left the Disney Company in 1974 to purchase his first hotel, a 256-room Quality Inn on International Drive.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
