Based on some news I saw last year, I was under the assumption that Shingle Creek was just moving a few holes during the 2016 renovation, but boy is that wrong. The new layout, done by Arnold Palmer Design and Thad Layton, is totally different, and in my opinion, it's better. The green complexes, all remade or brand new, are a totally different philosophy, with virtually no rough around them, playing more like a Pinehurst or links-style course. The approach shots and short game decision-making is now a strength of the layout, when it used to not be all that remarkable.

I'm seeing a few bad reviews lamenting the design changes. It's true this isn't traditional Florida resort golf anymore. My answer is: There's no shortage of that in Orlando, you'll be fine.

Tee times at Shingle generally costs less than Waldorf-Ritz-Tranquilo but a little more than Hawk's Landing/Disney World, which I think makes sense, but check stay-and-play packages for good bargains.

Conditions are good at the moment but a summer of growth will serve the grounds well, as the majority of the acreage was re-turfed. Definitely put this course on your radar if you're going to be near Universal or the convention center.

The course was redesign and the greens are new. This will be a challenging course when the greens are mature. They were rolling at 6.5, max. 7. You need to use the cart GPS, no outside GPS working.

So, it's Orlando, it's winter and it's a resort.

Don't hit the walkers from the many conventions at Rosen's Shingle Creek who partake of the course at lunchtime.

having said that, this is a moderate to challenging resort course, at a good location. Staff was helpful, parking and bag drop are close by. Slope @ 125-128 Whites after course revamped May-Nov 2016. Greens and bunkers in excellent shape, fairways cut tight and layout was good, landing areas and hazards well noted. GPS in cart is a big help! Par 3's are moderate in distance and hazards. Standard Florida layout: "hazard on the left, water on the right".

Range balls included and practice areas easy to find. Pace of play was very good, (Friday mid day).

Course was good, we even payed a cheaper rate ($90) but It just wasn't anything special, I'd say this is about the same course as ChampionsGate and falcons fire.

Valet parking is nice but unnecessary.

Staff was very nice, had them check in a couple of times to ensure pace of play was fine which was great.

I liked the course alot, had a big problem with the GPS and scorecards. Didnt notice until the turn that our 2 carts had two different cards and the carts had widley different GPS readings. Made for a frustrating day. So double check distances! Other than that, staff was nice and course was tough but playable

According to the staff, the course recently reopened. The course, practice facilities, and staff were great. Lunch at the bar was also a treat. Course is set up for levels of play with lots of tee positions from which to choose. Very enjoyable round!

Played there about 10 years ago and really enjoyed the course. Fast forward to January 2017, after a complete redesign of the entire course (???), and we couldn't have been much more disappointed. The fairways were OK, while the greens were extremely firm and wouldn't hold a good wedge approach they were extremely slow once you were putting and not one hole on the course really "wowed" you.

In summation...Shingle Creek shouldn't have re-designed the course to begin with and while it fetches $165/ pp or so now it's actual value should not be any more than $75.

The course has been totally re-designed since the last time I played it back in 2012. I don't recall the course needing a re-design so I was surprised by just how much had changed. I'd go back and play it again with the new knowledge obtained. Water on 16 of 18 holes so be prepared for that. The greens were top dressed and didn't hold very well on some of the newer greens. That's to be expected (but usually in hindsight).
