The Winter Park Golf Course is a highly rated public 9 hole gem in the heart of Winter Park. Originally built in 1914, the course underwent major renovations in 2016, making it one of the best short course experiences in the country. The course, a 2480 yard par 35, is surrounded by city streets and neighborhood homes, two churches and a cemetery. Train tracks border the east end of the course so passengers on SunRail and Amtrak get a beautiful view as they pull into the Winter Park Station. The course is best experienced by walking although a few drive carts are available to rent for those in need. Tee times for the public can be made up to three days in advance of play. Memberships are available as well. The course is open every day except Christmas day and a few Mondays throughout the year for maintenance.
