The Metrowest Golf Club in Orlando, Florida could easily be the Audrey Hepburn of today’s array of golf vacation destinations. When all the others are getting rough and edgy, this golf course is effortless, fluid, graceful. While the others are in contention for beauty and scenery, no one could question that this is one golf course that has perfected grace.
Ironically, this course is the handiwork of the top pioneer of today’s rough and edgy designs, the legendary Robert Trent Jones Sr. He created a true breather of a course – a break from his usual designs, and an break from the cookie-cutter designs. The course measures more than 7,000 yards from the longest tees and plays for a par of 72. Five sets of tees are available for golfers of all skill levels. The Metrowest Golf Club flows, almost literally, with its layout of dramatic but smooth elevation changes of up to 100 feet. The holes wind around mature forests, spring-fed lakes, and wide fairways. Large, undulating greens along with shaped bunkers define the attitude of this course – a more than perfect complimenting element. And they all combine to create a golf vacation whose greatness is just incomparable.
In this modern age of golfing, where roughness and grace cannot seem to exist in the same world, the Metrowest Golf Club proves otherwise. There seems to be no natural and effortless and quiet calmness to any course that has a view of the city’s skyline except here. Whilst Orlando’s downtown area and its many, many amenities are but a stone’s throw away, guests are assured that they will get a great, peaceful golf trip here. Like a true lady, her beauty stands out even when caught in a pile of urban mess.
