Great course

I love playing this course. Staff are always friendly and course conditions are always tops. It’s a challenging course but fair. My only complaint is that sometimes the pace of play is slow and the rangers need be out to keep things moving. Yo - you duffers who keep taking 3 or more practice swings, and those who don’t give your colleagues 2 ft putts, you are ruining it for everyone else. This isn’t the PGA. Tournament. This is supposed to be fun. A 5 hour round is NOT fun. So pick up the ball and keep the pace moving - Please!

Great day

Course is not very long from the Blue tees (6300) which makes several of the par fours nearly driveable (but you better be straight). Courses only defense is the green which are severely contoured and make for some difficult putts! Staff is great! Range balls were pretty beat up but otherwise the course is very nice.

Best condition course I’ve played this trip! Greens and fairways immaculate. Layout is good although there is a new building being built right next to the course by #12 and it’s a real eye saw

Nice Course, wish slow players would wait to play afternoon

Played yesterday at 7:50 am and was hoping to get in a round under 4 hours but 2 foursomes in front played like it was a leasurly Sunday afternoon. I wish they would have played later in the day so guys that want to get a quick round in the morning can do it. I was with 2 other singles that also were trying to done at an early morning pace. Wish maybe course would let users know when booking that a quicker pace is expected in the first few times in the day.

Humbling, but I’ll be back.

I’m a 14 handicap. A course like Shingle Creek, with its assorted challenges and risk/reward opportunities, typically allows me a handful of excellent shots, a handful of bonehead mistakes, and a whole bunch of shots that, if only I were a better ball striker, would have been awesome. In short, it’s the kind of course that a high handicapper looks forward to playing better. I’ll definitely be back.

Shingle Creek

Played here on the morning of 3/7/18. First, they have free valet at the bag drop. Be prepared to be rushed. Pro shop is very nice and has an upscale feel to it. Course is in great condition. Greens were smooth and the fairways are plush and thriving. Shingle Creek may possibly have the most comfortable golf cart I have ever driven. Utilize the GPS on the carts to plan your approach and tee shots and you will enjoy your round a lot!

Great Day at Shingle

Played this course for the third time on a golf buddies trip. This was the best experience as the course was in great condition, rangers kept things moving, and quite surprisingly the leather cushioned carts were the most comfortable carts I've played on. A real key is to get it right on the correct tees to play which we did playing the blue tees with handicaps between 9 -14. This enabled us to enjoy the sophisticated greens more this time. Pro shop very well stocked, friendly staff, all in all a great day.

Johns shingle day

Course very nice, conditions excellent. Challenging for me due to winter offseason inactivity plus lots of water , difficult greens and wind. The slope ratings seem understated. Many greens are small, elevated about 6 ft above the fairway and relatively fast. Hitting the green and staying on it requires a very accurate high shot( flop shot from just off the green) or you will be off the green a fair distance on the opposite side where another difficult flop shot awaits you. Bunkers are plentiful but very well maintained with plenty of sand to blast. Definitely would play again but after tuning up my short iron game and flop shots in particular.

Excellent golf course

Course in excellent condition- it was quite breezy so made for some challenging holes as there’s a lot of water hazards on the course . Pace of play was ok just over 4 and a half hours. Enjoyable day and we were made to feel welcome by all the staff we met.

A Must Play in the Orlando Area

If you haven’t played Shingle Creek Golf Club in Orlando in a few years, you’re in for a rude awakening; but it’s all good. If this is your first time playing the course, you’ll absolutely love it!

The course originally opened for play in 2003 and was designed by Dave Harman; it’s the centerpiece of the 5-star Rosen Shingle Creek Resort, which opened in 2006. The resort features 1500 rooms furnished with luxurious appointments and accommodations, nine dining venues, a full-service spa, 4 swimming pools, tennis, beach volleyball, basketball and much more.

In 2016, the golf course underwent a complete renovation. Some holes were remodeled, other holes were rerouted and new holes were added. The result is a golf course that is a lot more player friendly and every bit – if not more – beautiful than it was in its original state. The Arnold Palmer Design Company oversaw the restoration of the golf course with the goal of giving the course added variety and adding certain elements of strategy in order to post a low number.

The service afforded to both golfers and resort guests is evident the moment you arrive. Attendants greet golfers at the bag drop and direct them to the stylish clubhouse which includes a spacious, fully stocked pro shop and a restaurant/lounge with comfortable seating and a wonderful golf-centered atmosphere. Lunch is served daily and an early dinner menu is available as well. Should you find yourself with an early morning tee time, the Partake Café offers fresh baked danishes and muffins as well as the highly esteemed Par-Take Breakfast Sandwich. All of your favorite libations and soft drinks are available as well as fresh made deli sandwiches, hot dogs and burgers as you make the turn, which is now after the 7th hole. Men’s and women’s locker rooms are also located in the clubhouse and feature private shower stalls, sitting areas and dark cherry wood lockers.

Shingle Creek Golf Club is home to the Brad Brewer Golf Academy and is one of the nation’s best golf instruction facilities. Brewer has received numerous awards and recognitions, including a top 100 ranking by Golf Magazine; he’s also a PGA Class-A Professional. The Academy recently added a short-game area and as a result, the practice area has doubled in size. They’ve also installed new state-of-the-art swing analysis equipment and game improvement technology in the indoor hitting bays.

Before your round, be sure to take advantage of the well laid out practice facility which is included with your greens fee. The practice area has a spacious driving range where you can hit every club in your bag to your heart’s content, a short game area with a practice bunker and a good-sized practice putting green. A lot of players have difficulty chipping from closely mowed grass around the green. If this describes your game, you may want to get there early and spend some extra time at the practice facility practicing these shots; they will come in handy on the course.

From the back (Black) tees, Shingle Creek plays 7,213 yards. Unless you’re a scratch golfer or close to it, it may be best to move up. From the back tees, the shortest par 3 is 190 yards and the longest is 244 yards; a good drive for many players! I found that the Blue Tees (6,213 yards) were a fair test for my game; I was able to enjoy myself and still leave with a little respect! In all, Shingle Creek offers golfers five sets of tees with yardages measured at 7,213 yards, 6,600 yards, 6,213 yards, 5,582 yards and 4,945 yards. Choose the set that best match your game and you’re sure to have a good time.

Although the fairways at Shingle Creek are, for the most part, wide and provide generous landing areas, they have a lot of roll to them which can create challenging lies. The greens put fast and true, some with dramatic sloping from back to front. Depending on the mood of the greenskeeper and his decision on where to place the flags that morning, there can be some very challenging pin positions on some of the greens. Even a short putt can have plenty of break.

Some of the most memorable holes on the golf course are the par 5s. It all starts on the 2nd, known as Ismael’s Gift, which plays 506 yards from the Blue Tees. Depending on how far you can hit the ball off the tee, you may want to consider trying to carry the coquina shelled bunker that protects the left side of the fairway. Not only is it the shortest distance to the green, it also sets up the best angle into it. Beware of the pot bunker that occupies the middle of the fairway about 60 yards short the green. Your pitch shot will require a deft touch; the green has a large false front on and the rest slopes towards the back.

The 8th hole, Handshake, was one of the reconfigured holes. It was lengthened tremendously and now plays over 600 yards from the back tees, easily the longest hole on the course. The safest line is down the left side, away from the lake on the right. This will leave the best angle into the green, although for most players it is still a 3-shot hole. Playing down the right side is definitely shorter and the closer you pay to the lake, the easier your next shot becomes. A word of advice: Play down the left side for a front left pin placement.

The first par 5 on the back nine is Number 13, nicknamed Skillit. This 570-yard par 5 is one of the new holes and brings a canal into play down the left side. The big decision on Skillit is on the 2nd shot: play short, play left or carry the fairway bunkers. Successful navigation of your second shot will leave a delicate pitch shot into a deep narrow green with the canal to the left. Miss the green right and you’ll leave yourself a challenging up and down. Miss it left and simply finding your ball can be an arduous chore.

Number 16, Emma, is a reachable par 5 that plays 447 yards from the Blue Tees and offers a lot of room off the tee. Success on Emma is determined with your approach shot. There’s a small mound that juts into the front center of the green and separates it in two. You’ll want to find the side of the green the pin is on with your approach shot in order to avoid a challenging recovery.

Another hole worth mentioning is Number 14, is a short risk/reward par 4, aptly named Roulette, that plays 276 yards from the Blue Tees. A well struck tee shot can easily reach the green, but with water making up the entire left side, you have to ask yourself: “Do I feel lucky?” Plus, there’s a nasty little pot bunker guarding the front of the green.

Last Word: What you’ll now find at Shingle Creek is a course that is a lot more forgiving and player friendly for the average player, yet a lot more challenging for the skilled golfer. This is because of the thought process now involved in playing the course at a high level. The average golfer can come out and take advantage of the wider fairways off the tees, and the long par 4 and 5 holes provide ample opportunity to recover from an errant shot. The skilled player will now be required to bring their “A” game, one that is a lot more exacting if he/she wants to post a low number. Both types of players will relish in the natural beauty of their surroundings.

Bunkers are more visible and seem to be strategically placed in landing areas. The greens feature a good variety of slopes and undulations and range in size from small to extremely large. All in all, Shingle Creek is one of the best rounds of golf you can play in the Orlando area and can provide a change from the theme parks.

Shingle Creek offers some tremendous Stay and Play opportunities that include accommodations, two rounds of golf and complimentary shuttle service, all for one low price.
