Mixed Information

The map link take you to a housing complex that used to be the 18 hole course across the street. Some of the yardage information is still references the old course as well. This is a par 3 and short par 4 training 9 hole course that you play twice. No beverage cart.

Nice track for quick or practice round

This course was a little wet. It was not long, but required that you place your shots in right place. If you are staying here then great option like being at a golf resort. Would have liked it better if it were s as full 18 not playing 9 twice.

Unreal

I never write/leave reviews however my experience at Grande Vista really was superb. I played on my own at 7am, so was round in just over an hour, one of the most gorgeous, picturescue golf courses I have ever played, just perfect,

I will be back.

Only being 9 holes, it should be listed as an executive par 3 course. The few par 4’s are actually long par 3’s. Was disappointed. No course balls to hit, was a 1st for a course like this.

July 4th round

We booked a hot deal early on July 4th and enjoyed a 9 hole round! The course was a little wet but in excellent shape. A really nice 9 hole course to play while on vacation!

Really a fun layout...a bit of a hidden gem in the heart of the Orlando attractions area. I highly recommend this as a break from the parks or trade show scene.

Thursday

The golf was excellent, the staff are always friendly and the course was in superb condition.

I was more disappointed by the fact that my Amex Card was charged for the round before the stated time of 7:20 on the day.

Either this is a mistake by the golf reception at Grande Vista or Golfnow charged my card before I was given the opportunity to pay cash at the course. I do not expect my card to be charged against what is stated or against my wishes.

Great Golf Experience

I was on vacation and found a favorable time and price on a tee time. I played alone. The fairways and greens were in great shape. The grounds were well kept. The whole experience was very tranquil and I enjoyed the my 9 holes of golf. For the last three holes, I caught up with fellow golfer on vacation from Ontario. We exchanged pleasantries and played the last three holes together. The staff in the club house and the attendant with the golf cart were very pleasant. I would certainly play this course again.

Great short resort course

I've played this course several times and I think its one of the best hidden gems in Orlando if you are in the attractions area. The one miss is that its not a walk-able 9-hole golf course. Each hold is pretty contained and routes through the property, making the course pretty peaceful and a good escape from hustle and bustle.

Another solid Orlando short-course option

I played the adjacent 18-hole Grande Pines a few years ago (which is now closed) and was glad to finally see Grand Vista, the 9-holer the property decided to keep. First off, the facilities, despite being a short course, are as good as many of the resorts in town. There is a full driving range, clubhouse bar & restaurant and short game greens.

The nine-hole course is pleasant and long enough where you can hit all the clubs in your bag, culminating with a 400-yard par 4. The routing is a bit odd as it's a short course yet not geared towards walking: several long drives between holes. A whiff from the developer there.

But all things considered this is a place I would feel great bringing a wide range of skill levels and ages to. If you're near the Sea World area and have a little time to spare this is a fine option.

Great little spot away from the hustle of theme parks

Had the chance to play Grande Vista for the first time today. Golf Advisor reviews showed a highly rated (4.4), well conditioned, fun golf course and I concur. This is a 9-hole Par 32 track with nuance and challenge that golfers of all skill levels can enjoy. The conditioning is excellent and despite winding through the Marriott Vacation Club property, it’s extremely peaceful. Though we didn’t have time to fully explore, there is a great practice facility under the Marriott Golf Academy brand.

There’s a fair amount of water, but none comes more into play than on the last three holes. Make sure not to go long on 8 and the drive on 9 is one that I would do all over again had I known how deep the water cuts into the landing area. Unless you can fit your drive into a ~20 yard fairway, it’s best to lay up to the fattest part of the fairway to the right of the fairway bunker. It’ll leave a longer second shot, but it’s the much safer play. The last hole at 400 yards+ could be the best hole on the course, but the blind water was definitely off-putting to me.

Overall, lots of fun and I would definitely return for another round.
