The Orlando, Fla., course features new holes, greens and reconfigured bunkers. Some holes on the front nine were eliminated and replaced with longer combination holes. Another hole now plays alongside a lake instead of over it.
The redesigned Shingle Creek Golf Club in Orlando, Fla., reopened on December 1, Golf Advisor reported, featuring 18 new greens, several new holes and renovated bunkers.
Located near the Orange County Convention Center, the course has been revamped by Arnold Palmer Design Co., Golf Advisor reported. Some holes on the front nine were eliminated, creating several new holes on the golf course.
The course’s greens were rebuilt, adding undulation and new TifEagle gress. Bunkers were redone as well, to improve their flashing.
A key change, Golf Advisor reported, is the new No. 8, which is a combination of two old holes and now plays as a 610-yard par 5. The new No. 9 is now a 505-yard par 4 from the back tees.
The 12th, 13th and 14th are all new holes, Golf Advisor reported, and the 15th, a par 3, now plays alongside a lake instead of over it.
Overall, the revamped golf course now plays to 7,213 yards from the back tees. Par is still 72 and the course has four sets of tees.
