The lakeside view is perfect. The numerous water hazards – thirteen ponds on 16 sixteen of the eighteen holes – even more so. And then there are the wooded areas – both beautiful and treacherous. Of course, there’s the 6,846 yards of golf from the longest tees, par-71. If there is anyone who could say something that is not irresistible about the Kissimmee Bay Country Club in Florida, the floor is open. That is just least likely; this is one of the most favorite golf vacation destinations this side of the Sunshine State, and that is among locals and tourists alike.
This Lloyd Clifton creation opened in 1990 and has since been the go-to place for epic golf vacations and simple golf outings. This is the epitome of simple, timeless beauty – with just the right of grit to keep the golfers engaged and happy. Centenary oaks and towering cypresses grow abundantly throughout the Kissimmee Bay Country Club and in one way or another, will make their presence known as more than just visual aesthetic elements.
And then there’s the wind. The wind that blows off the lake is as fickle as a woman, thus making rounds vary from day to day; on more interesting days, the wind would change its mind more than it is supposed to in a day and transforms a game into an entirely different one. That is the Kissimmee Bay Country Club – of little perfections coming together to make every golf trip the best one there is for everyone.
