This is a difficult nine holes designed by Tom Fazio. It's proof that you can't go wrong when you give one of the worlds best golf course architects a remarkable piece of ground. The Back tees should be avoided. The Middle tees are a more than thorough test. This is a private golf course. Soft spikes only.
The back nine was added to this course in 1997. The front nine has a number of waste bunkers, and the entire course is notable for its large greens. These greens are well trapped. The course is in excellent shape and offers a challenge to good and poor players alike. The last three holes are difficult to brutal. Conserve your strength. This is a private golf course. Soft spikes only.
On this magnificent course, five holes surround an old quarry. The entire course is full of hills, but the stark walls of the quarry are the trademark. It is remarkably beautiful and challenging. One of the great mysteries in Florida golf circles is why this track doesn't have the reputation it deserves. Play this course if you get an opportunity to do so. This is a private golf course. Soft spikes only.
This very well regarded central Florida course is another fine piece of architecture from the Fazio family. El Diablo Golf & Country Club is visually stunning, with a wide variety of trees enveloping its fairways. A number of massive oaks are particularly beautiful. The landing areas are well defined and there are some elevation changes. The hills result in a blind shot or two. The par-3s, par-4s, and par-5s are very long from the Gold tees. This, combined with a formidable 147 slope rating from the Gold tees, should prompt an average player to choose the Blue or White tees.
