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.
