Eagle Creek Golf Club features more than 90 white sand, Scottish-style bunkers strategically placed within the splendid layout. The fairways are wide to offer forgiveness for the errant shot, but the frequent windy conditions of Orlando make hitting the fairways a challenge.

A quick 20-minute drive from Orlando International Airport is the Rees Jones-designed Falcon's Fire Golf Club. Recently renovated, Falcon's Fire's conditioning and layout have been revitalized. As part of the golf course renovation project, all greens were resurfaced with TifEagle grass. TifEagle provides golfers with faster, smoother putting conditions. Additional modifications to the course included the enlarging of bunkers, reshaping of fairways, and the creation of new run-off areas around greens. Falcons Fire Golf Club earned recognition as the Best Orlando Public Golf Course in 2019.
