With three designs already on Golfweek's list of '100 Greatest Modern Courses,' renowned architect Steve Smyers has teamed up with player consultant Nick Faldo to create one of Central Florida's most dynamic new courses at Grande Pines, centrally located on South International Drive. Contoured, gently rolling fairways, numerous ponds (water found on 12 holes) and enhanced landscaping are all bordered by tall natural pines, oaks and palms. Numerous undulating greens are elevated and many are well-protected by artfully crafted bunkers... "target-golf" at its best, but recent renovations to landing areas and bunkers have tremendously softened up this memorable, challenging track. Marriott's strong emphasis is product quality and customer service. Perfectly manicured with consistant year-round tournament playing conditions.
