Hawk's Landing is a course that's on the doorstop of the Orlando attractions, and as a result you'll be paying a little bit more for the priviledge. Is it worth it? The course has a lot of varied, pretty and interesting holes, the greens were as quick and smooth as any I've played recently, and if you play well then you'll really enjoy the experience. Have an off day though and you'll really see it on the scorecard.

To get the best from your round I think you'll have to choose your tees carefully. There's a lot of water in front of quite a few of the greens, and you really don't want to keep taking that approach shot with a longer club. There's lots of sand too, just in case the water doesn't get you. I'd suggest that the lower your handicap, the more suitable this course will be to you.

The clubhouse, practise facilities and pro shop are all top class, so if you can get a deal and have your A game, then you can do far worse than Hawk's Landing.

Thank you for the 4-Star rating and I assure you we are continually working on the golf course and always look to improve. We recently replaced the greens with Diamond Zoysia grass and will be completing a bunker renovation later this summer.

The fairways are completely transitioned from our Winter Rye grass back to our 419 Bermuda and are coming back nicely.

We look forward to hosting your group for another round of golf in the near future.

Thank you!

We played the course Saturday. The course condition was horrible compared to other comparable golf courses. The fairways were in just horrible conditions, as if there had been a flood or mass fungus. I played the course about a year ago and it was prestine. We played several golf courses in the area and the other courses were in way better condition. Besides the bad course condition the greens were aerated and the golf cart area under construction. I hope the course gets better because I remember that this was the course to play. Good staff.

Michael, thank you for your feedback about your recent experience at Hawk's Landing. We did actually receive 12+ inches of rain from May 15-22, however the fairway condition you are referring to is a direct result of our overseeding the golf course with Winter Rye Grass and the subsequent transition back to our 419 Bermuda grass which sometimes does leave some bear patches that grow-in throughout the summer months. The greens were aerified May 29 & 30 and we were also resurfacing our golf cart staging area. These are the reasons why we had reduced rates during the time you played. We appreciate your comments and hope to have you back again. Thank you again for taking the time to share your Hawk's Landing experience.

Great course. Perfect course conditions. Fast, receptive greens with plenty of break. They were challening, but fair. The fairways and tee boxes were in top-notch condition. Course design among the best in the area. Beautiful holes that make you play smart golf. The golf experience was incredible. The parking experience, on the other hand, was not so great. Plan an extra 15-20 minutes to deal with valet. And allow plenty of time to warm up at their first rate practice facility.

Overall, the course is a great place to play. We were told as we began our round that much watering was done recently and the course would be playing all carry and no roll. OK, then it poured on us for basically the front 9. Hey, its Florida. So were soaked. The course wasn't. The greens rolled amazingly well. No puddles, still fast and true. Overall, the course drained well. Sure, there were wet spots but no standing water... a few plugged shots but thats ok, just had to look harder to find the ball. The layout makes it challenging yet fun. Its not a long course but you can easily find trouble with the water and bunkers. Off fairway shots can find you in trouble. It was somewhat slow, but not going to fault anybody, we all paid our money, everyone deserves to play. We enjoyed our day, the staff was really guest service oriented. That's a bonus because sometimes you go to courses and get mistreated, not here. We would go back.

Never played here before but a regular golfer in this area. This course forms part of a large Marriott hotel (and yes it’s very large). Parking for the golf isn’t that easy and also isn’t well signed. Push the button for bag drop service which really isn’t great (refurbishment of golf club house taking place) - pro shop service superb and likewise starter. Tee boxes in great shape but first three fairways covered in grass as fairways scarification in process so lift and clean - fairways are good with lots of grass. Bunkers excellent and greens superb. Just feel that being part of a large hotel this lacks some of the intimacy of other courses in the area and yes it was expensive. Overall I’d play it again but not as a first choice.

Thank you for your comments about your experience here at Hawk's Landing. We appreciate the kind comments about our fairway, green and bunker conditions and strive to make continual improvements. We did also recently install a new and larger bag drop sign along with additional signage along the main drive of the hotel, which we hope will improve the arrival experience as we do realize our placement near the main entrance of the hotel may make it a little tougher to find us, but we do work hard to improve the arrival especially on busy days.

Something about HL that perplexes me and I know I should shoot better but it's got the better of me the last couple of times out. Still, I will continue to go and look forward to the challenge.
