Ridgewood Lakes -This Ted McAnis-designed layout has a top reputation among golfers, many enjoying their golf so much they return time ofter time. It's another great course only a ten minute drive from the villa!
The Ridgewood Lakes course opened in 1994 with both nines featuring strategically placed hazard and fairways framed by sparkling white sand bunkers. Par-4 and par-5 holes have generous tee shot landing areas, all of which are plainly visible from the tee. Ridgewood is not one of those courses with 'gimmicks' or hidden trouble; just a great layout made for an enjoyable golfing experience. 
Ridgewood Lakes' greens are amongst the finest to be found at any Orlando-area golf course because we are the only central Florida course with CHAMPIONS TURF greens. We meticulously maintain the grounds now that we have levelled every teen box on the course and replenished each greenside bunker with new sand

A similar distance from the house and equally worth a visit is the more challenging Mystic Dunes. The name sounds peaceful enough with the veneer of a tranquil, safe harbour, but lying in wait, ready to pounce, there is a not so serene side to this 18 hole journey. A side that also keeps you on the edge, at the verge of surrender, but not willing to forgo the emotional peaks and valleys of the challenge that lies ahead.

Mystic Dunes is located within the beautiful Mystic Dunes Resort & Golf Club which is carved from rolling orange groves and native protected wetlands. Champions Tour player and NBC lead golf analyst Gary Koch has created a masterpiece of blended philosophies and unrivalled challenges that is certain to go down as one of the most unique in all of Florida
