Located on one of Central Florida’s most biologically diverse and beautiful ecological sites, The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club is the region’s premier golfing destination. The club is situated within Grande Lakes Orlando, the 500-acre luxury resort destination in the headwaters of the Florida Everglades, which is anchored by The Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes and JW Marriott Orlando, Grande Lakes.
Here, guests are invited to hit the links and take in the spectacular scenery of the certified Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary golf course, which is home to a thriving ecosystem of ponds, wetlands, live oaks and cypress heads.
With 18 championship-level holes designed by two-time British Open champion Greg Norman and a course that serves as a PGA Tour Challenge event site, the full-service Ritz-Carlton Golf Club has everything guests need for a memorable experience in Orlando.
Additional features of the golf club include an all-grass driving range, putting green and practice facility; five sets of tees available for varying shot options, with closely mowed turf and short roughs; and an upscale, full-service clubhouse with pro shop and Fairways Pub restaurant and bar. Florida residents and frequent visitors are also able to access a dedicated Members Club.
Former PGA Tour Player and Top Golf Instructor Larry Rinker serves as the Director of Instruction at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club and offers instructional programs that range from 1-2-3-hour golf lessons to 1-2-3-day golf schools.
In between a round of golf, guests may enjoy all that Grande Lakes Orlando has to offer, including luxury accommodations across the two recently renovated hotels, a 40,000-square-foot Ritz-Carlton spa, and three picture-perfect pools.
A dining destination in Florida, Grande Lakes Orlando offers twelve celebrated dining venues including the MICHELIN-Star Knife & Spoon, a steak and seafood restaurant led by award-winning Chef John Tesar, and the MICHELIN-recognized Primo, serving Mediterranean/Italian fare by multiple James Beard award-winning Chef Melissa Kelly.
