Halifax Plantation, Orlando, Fl One of the most peaceful settings on the golf course is standing on the tee box of the par-3, 231-yard sixth hole. This great hole plays downhill  and is surrounded entirely by tall pine trees. The green is wide, so getting on in regulation is a possibility for some from the back. The four par-3s  on the course make this design tough to score on because they all extend over 195 yards from the black tee box locations.

The 14th is without a doubt one of the most difficult par-4s in the county. It stretches 474 yards from the back tees and calls for players to hit a draw off the tee for the best position to play from in the fairway for the approach shot. The green is long and guarded by a sand bunker to the  left side.
