Stoneybrook West Golf ClubThe top-ranked golf course at Stoneybrook West Golf Club in Winter Garden has been a favorite in Central Florida since it opened for play in 2000. The 18-hole, par-72 course offers the perfect blend of challenging shots, exciting hazards and delightful scenery. Locals and visitors to the area return time after time for another round of golf at Stoneybrook West.

Designed by award-winning golf course architect Arthur Hills, every detail on the course was given careful consideration.

Although enjoyable for beginner golfers who play from the front tees, the true challenge is for golfers playing from the back tees, a distance of some 7,101 yards. Water hazards are found on nearly every hole, forcing players to strategize and focus, while more than 1,500 palm trees and an abundance of sand bunkers enhance the challenge of the Orlando golf course.

Golf Digest ranked the course as one of the best places to play, and it was named the second-best golf course in Florida and Number 27 in the nation by golflink.com. Located just 20 minutes from downtown Orlando and only 15 minutes from the main gates of all the major attractions, golfers can play a round of top-rated golf while their families head to the wonders of Disney World, Epcot Center and MGM and Universal Studios. For those who live and work in Orlando, it is easy to escape the bustle of the city, play a round of golf, and make it back to the office in time for an afternoon meeting.

Celebration Golf ClubInspired by its Old World legacy and located just minutes from the Walt Disney World Resort in the town of Celebration, Celebration Golf Club reflects the combined talents of the legendary fatherson duo, who created a course unlike any other in the Central Florida area. The final collaboration between Robert Trent Jones Senior and Junior is proof positive that they did indeed save their best for last. It’s lush, much like a nature preserve, with undulating swells and topography that create drama on virtually every hole.

The design delivers a golfing test that can challenge the pros, yet offer a rewarding experience for beginning golfers of any age. Its challenge is evinced by the impressive list of professional events the course has hosted, including the U.S. Senior Open Qualifier, the Robert Gamez Celebrity Invitational, the Florida State Public Links Championship, the Buick Scramble National Championships, and The Golf Channel’s Drive, Chip and Putt Finals. All the more reason why Celebration has been rated 4-1/2 Stars in Golf Digest’s Best Places to Play since 2004, and in the magazine’s Top 200 facilities in North America for Standard of Service and Course Conditions.

Inspired by its Old World legacy and located just minutes from the Walt Disney World Resort, Celebration Golf Club reflects the combined talents of the legendary father-son duo of Robert Trent Jones Senior and Junior, who created a course unlike any other in the Central Florida area.And it’s not surprising that golf event planners rate Celebration Golf Club as the #1 golf event venue in Central Florida – the club has a wealth of experience from which to draw upon, having hosted more than 3,500 successful tournaments and outings. Celebration’s services, value-added features and attention to detail set them apart from the all the rest. Their goal is simple: achieving excellence in every event they host.

Whether for the impeccable course conditions, the friendly and helpful staff, the convenience of the location or the surprisingly reasonable rates, visiting and resident golfers have made Celebration Golf Club a must-play in Central Florida. And while Trent Jones Jr. is still designing masterpieces around the world, Trent Jones Sr., who designed (or re-designed) about 500 golf courses in 40 states and 35 foreign countries, passed away in 2000, just days shy of his 94th birthday.

Which means, unfortunately, that the stunning Celebration course is truly a golf experience that can never be repeated. For more information visit our website at www.celebrationgolf.com or call (407) 566-GOLF (4653).
