Having read our public course guides, our readers know by now that I’m a huge fan of golf courses that are owned and run by the city in a way that provides both recreation and revenue to the community.
That’s why it comes as no surprise that Winter Park Golf Course came in near the top of the list.
This gem of a nine-hole track dates all the way back to 1914. Even though it underwent a major renovation in 2016, it remains modest in nature. With that being said, it’s always in tremendous condition.
Locals that play here a lot prefer to walk. The course yardage is short, as are the distances between greens and tees.
This track occupies an important place in the Winter Park ecosystem, and it doesn’t appear that will change any time soon.
