SHINGLE CREEK GOLF CLUBOrlando, FL
This Orlando golf course has a rich history, receiving its name from the creek that runs throughout the Shingle Creek Resort. Some of the earliest Central Florida settlers were attracted to the area because of wildlife, fishing, cypress trees, and of course the creek. At the time the creek was primarily used for logging cypress trees, which were transported down the river to a nearby mill. The trees were then processed into shingles, making shingle creek the perfect name for the course.
The course is known for its large, undulating greens, plush fairways and an abundance of water hazards. Shingle Creek is also home to the Brad Brewer Golf Academy, one of the best golf instruction facilities in the nation. Brad Brewer has received numerous awards and recognitions, such as being ranked as a top 100 teacher by Golf Magazine and PGA class-A Professional.
