Solid, fun track

Really enjoyed the course. Fun layout. No tricked-up holes. Pretty surroundings. Unfortunately, when I played the course the greens were still recovering from being punched a couple/few weeks before. That being said, they were still solid, just a bit slower than I am used to. Definitely recommend playing here if you have the chance.

What golf is all about!

We were lucky enough, as a visiting party from Dunblane New GC, Central Scotland, to be able to play Winter Haven through a contact. The course was in A1 condition - tees, greens, fairways, bunkers - and we particularly enjoyed the par 3s and the challenge of the many dogleg holes. Above all, it's simply beautiful, serene.

We were greeted in very friendly fashion and still able to enjoy a snack lunch despite the upper level of the clubhouse being taken over by a wedding party.

Low-key, beautiful and fun

As new golf course construction has all but halted in the last decade or so, renovations and restorations by well-known architects have raised the profile of scores of courses. Country Club of Winter Haven is a prime example, its original layout having been improved greatly by Rees Jones and Bill Bergin. The flattish lakeside course takes on something of a Donald Ross look and feel, with pushed-up, undulating greens guarded by short-grass runoff areas and deep, flat-bottomed bunkers. The course is more about position than power off the tee, and rewards guile and patience. It's a private club, but fairly unpretentious and well worth playing if you get the chance. I played it in one of the Florida State Golf Association's Winter Series events in January 2017, and look forward to returning in a couple months.
