With rolling terrain, elevation change and majestic pines as the backdrop for one gorgeous hole after another, Victoria Hills Golf Club is a favorite for golfers looking to play in central Florida. Considered by many one of Ron Garl's best designs, Victoria Hills Golf Club opened in 2000. It offers contours and movement atypical to the area, giving it a bit of a Carolinas feel. The course, which measures 7,149 yards from the back tees, presents a wide variety of holes with an assortment of doglegs, water features, fairway and greenside bunkers and elevated, undulating greens. There are six sets of tees, starting with the "Community" tees at 4,893 yards, to serve every level of player. While the course certainly has its challenges, it's very playable. The no. 1 handicap hole is the 585-yard par-5 fifth, but there's not a lot of trouble on the hall. For most players, it just requires three well-struck shots to the green. Water does come into play on several holes, including the 13th through 17th. The par-3 seventh, at 227 yards, is another challenging hole on the course. Victoria Hills Golf Club also offers a "mega" practice facility that includes a double-sided driving range as well as several chipping and putting greens. Instruction from the Victoria Hills Golf Academy is also available. And before or after golf, you'll want to spend a little time at Sparrow's Grille, an award winning dining facility that offers a great Sunday brunch as well as regular menu.
