ORLANDO, FL — The newly redesigned Shingle Creek Golf Club puts strategy and variety at the center of the golf experience with design features that harken back to the golden age of golf course design.
Arnold Palmer Design Company teamed with Landscapes Unlimited to create a new vision for typical “resort golf”.
Senior architect Thad Layton shared, “We set out to do something resolutely different at Shingle Creek. Orlando is a golf town and our backyard. As such, we sought to build a golf course that would inspire and challenge every type of golfer. Through a hands-on approach and countless hours on site, we handcrafted a golf course with design features reminiscent of some of the finest classic golf courses in the world.”
The new greens offer boldness, variety, and character. Bunkers have been reduced by more than 50%, concentrating the remainder of the bunkering where it dictates strategy. A huge new putting green was built between the 7th and 8th holes, including never-before chipping and bunker areas.
Holes 12, 13, and 14, are completely new designs. The drivable par 4 14th is an adrenaline inducing tee shot as the prospects of driving the green is so tempting but yet so risky.
All levels of players should enjoy the wide open playing corridors and strategic recovery options around the greens.
