Winter Park: Everything That's Right With Municipal Golf

25 39

The No Laying Up gang hit the road (and the rails) to check out Winter Park GC, a nine-holer near Orlando.

Winter Park Golf Course has had a special place in my golfing heart since 2010, when it was really the only place I could afford to play during an unpaid internship in Orlando. Since then, it’s undergone a massive overhaul that helps provide a model for what municipal golf should be in the United States.

For my Special Ops project this month, I wanted to shine some more light on a place nearby that deserves all the accolades we have to give.

    Reminds me of the place I started in the UK. Briggens Park golf club in Hertfordshire. 9 holes with 18 tees 5498 yds. Still pop back every now and then, the simplicity of the places is wonderful. The course is on private land & owner so does not need the income, I can imagine 1 or two greenskeepers. Great memory’s thanks for the video

    Gave it a run a couple weeks ago on an absurdly windy day for central FL. 2400 and change had me trying to flight mid irons into the wind, and using the ground more than the air on shots around the green.

    The greens are somewhat diabolical, but pure. It made me look pretty foolish, and I can’t wait to give it another go again soon.

    Miss playing with the Wednesday Men's group & luncheons of years ago when we had a snowbird home on Balmoral Rd.
