Tee Time on I-Drive

Thursday, April 19, 2018
A vacation in paradise just wouldn’t be complete without a round or two of golf! Surrounded by nothing but the sound of the palm trees swaying in the breeze, International Drive is home to some of the nicest world-class courses you can find. Whether you’re looking to catch a game of putt-putt with some good company or want to put all that practice to the test, you’ll find the perfect course right here.
Shingle Creek Golf Club
The Shingle Creek Golf Club features everything a golfer can dream up. With a new world-class club and a course that features greens highlighting various sized slopes, nobs, and swales; your round is sure to be an experience! The Shingle Creek golf course proves to be fun for the average player, yet more difficult for advanced players. Want to warm-up before jumping into the game? Enjoy fine tuning your swing at the 70,000 square feet driving range or prepare for the challenging greens at the new 15,000 square feet putting area that is suited with brand-new bunkers and chipping areas, of course. If you’ve been searching for a world-class golf course that will provide a great gaming experience; search no more; the new Arnold Palmer designed 18-hole, par 72 championship golf course at Rosen Shingle Creek is just what you’ve been looking for.

Grande Vista Golf Club
Sitting on the headwaters of the Florida Everglades, enjoy Florida and its beauty as you golf at Marriott's Grande Vista Golf Club. With 35 acres of land that is encompassed by magnificent oaks and cypress trees, you’ll be pleased to find a dedicated practice facility featuring the Marriott Golf Academy, which offers everything from expert golf instruction and custom club-fitting services, to a 9-hole, par 32 Ron Garl designed golf course. This stunning course was created with family in mind, and at the Grande Vista Golf Club learning and development is a top priority. There is no doubt that the Marriott is passionate about encouraging families to learn and play together, so next time you’re here be sure to take advantage of their offer for juniors (age 15 years and younger) to golf for free after 3:00 pm when accompanying a playing adult during their round!
